DEAR SANTA
Christmas wish list:
  • all the books on my "books-to-buy" list

  • time to read them

  • a domain name

  • a paid LJ account

  • tickets to a theater play or concert, something, ANYTHING

  • no worries about money for awhile

  • mostly so we don't have to worry about paying for tickets to the States next year

  • a way to get my sister and her family here for Christmas

  • all the trees on my tree list, come spring

  • a 2-door Alfa Romeo Graduate convertible just like Michelle Pfeiffer had in Tequila Sunrise, what, you thought I'd FORGOTTEN?!

  • motivation for diet changes and exercise...oh wait, wrong list, that's new year's resolutions
Work was crazy busy today getting all the last minute stuff done to make sure everyone is ready to leave this weekend for the trade show next week. Which meant I had to reschedule my planned fika to next week. Got back our newsletter from the printer, so happy!! My little baby, all shiny and glossy. The time it takes to get one of these newsletters out has gradually decreased to the point of ridiculousness. This is a 4-page newsletter with photos, articles, etc. The first time it took us roughly 3.5 months (not full time, though). This one, Issue #8, took a week and a half. We rock.

And just so everyone is clear...THIS is why we look forward to the holiday season so very, very much in my family...

That picture alone will keep me smiling for days! I love it!! hahaha

Oh my god, is that your daughter?? She is GORGEOUS!! So cute!!!

yep, that's her. She's a hoot. :P

What a delightful picture! :) Seriously, very very funny and cute. :)

Hee hee hee!

:)

Yes, her mother's daughter, all right!

Great Christmas list. :)

Hehehe! What a great picture - I'm surprised to see such a reaction in one so young, though! I mean, I can see Mom wanting to haul off and pop Santa in the nose after the Christmas frenzy pushes her over the edge, but the kidlet?! Dang!

And I didn't realize magnolia trees could grow so far north...

Me either, but apparently they do. :) I've seen them here, so I know it's possible. They usually have the "tulip" kind, although I know there is another variant, and THAT one, whatever it is, apparently doesn't do well here.

She has her mother's temper? Now I'm afraid of meeting you. Maybe you'll be beating me. It beats me why, though.

who said she has her mother's temper? don't believe everything Marie tells you! She's never met me, either. I rarely beat anyone, really. Except at Trivial Pursuit. Then, I rule the world. Sad, that's what it is.

Now that is a Christmas card picture! :)
