One man honors one day, another, many....
I hope that you guys had a delightsome Christmas day. We rejoice in the Gift that God bestowed upon our silent planet.
Had most of the kinder home, and we were indeed the Kings of Christmas! The stockings are the Thing, and they had peanuts, Russell Stover Christmas-ey candies (marshmallow santas, Maple Cream snowmen, like that) , candy Legos (think Sweetarts you can build with), Jelly Babies (candy shaped like babies, that you eat!), and then the goodies, like a little square cast-iron griddle, big enough for one grilled cheese for lunch, Jack Daniel's habanero hot sauce, USB hub shaped like a mini power-strip, a classic bottle opener, a mini Stonehenge set, a 2001-A Space Odyssey monolith action figure (with ZERO points of articulation!), fun stuff like that.
The Dread Dormomoo, the kids and I will email suggestion notes early on as guidelines. I received:
A model kit that I love! Now if I can just work on some models.
A very cosy 100% cotton hoodie.
A camo potholder and a camo hot mitt. (These are VERY welcome)
A Spider (good for draining fried goodies)
A MASSIVE shot glass from a local antique store. Has white level marks, and enough glass to induce blunt force trauma from a distance.
Freakazoid (WB surpassed Animaniacs, somewhat)
A Spy set with episodes from The Prisoner, The Persuaders, The Protectors, and The Champions.
Having a comparatively large family offers unintended dividends!
