Christmas stuff

Do you know Suebob? If you don't, you should. I don't know why the link isn't functioning, but try this:
Stop over and say hello. She's very cool. Here's a list she posted.

A Few of My Favorite Things:

Song: "Let It Snow". It's been the one for me since Mr. Smartypants taught M and I the words while waiting in line for Santa. I think she was 3 or 4.

Fictional character: Raymond Briggs' "The Snowman". Saw the video many times, and then M and I saw a live production in Covent Garden when she was 6. It snowed in the theatre. Oh. My. God.

Present: Well, I do love me some yarn, but I'd really rather someone gave a goat or a water buffalo or some ducklings. (Oooh, there's THIS.)

Tradition: Wrapping at the last minute. Waking up and finding the girlie sitting quietly reading in her room.

Food: Tamales whenever possible. Pork is best.

Cookies: Mr. Smartypants' Little Nut Balls. Don't ask for the recipe. He won't share, and I'm sworn to secrecy. They're worth it.

Drink: I like me some tasty nog, and I won't turn down the bubbly neither.

Light: Big old bulbs for me, please.

Reindeer: Yes, please! I guess I'd say I like 'em all.

Thing to do on Christmas day: We miss attending the McCurdy's party in Arizona. If there's a movie worth seeing, that's fun, too. Then again, lazing about is always delightful.
