Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah

It sure is convenient for us families of mixed religions when the holidays fall on the same day.  Our family got together a few days ago in La Quinta for an early holiday (for various logistical reasons) at my Mom’s house. But this morning it was just me, my wife Valerie, and my daughter Madison opening presents under the "Holiday" tree.

We got Maddie a kick-ass digital camera that makes ours look like a shoebox camera (and is about 1/4 the size and a 1/4 as expensive), the pair of Ugg boots she’s been wanting, and some DVDs and books that were on her list. She got us some chocolate bars, some home-made artwork, and a pack of one-of-a-kind gift certificates good for things like reading me a story, making diner, a week of doing dishes, and a night of "peace and quiet."

I hope your holiday was a nice as ours. I wish you, and your family, the very best in the new year.

  1. Happy holidays to you and yours, Lee.
    It’s been a quiet day of too much good food and good drink with the wife, children, and in-laws, soon to be followed by some good sleep.
    But, perhaps another glass of wine first.
    Cheers and goodnight!
