Shopping for the Angles

I woke up with a start this morning.  I have been working so hard to make sure that people with Go Fund Me crybaby pleas are getting what they want this year that I haven’t bought a single thing for my own lil’ babbies.  I certainly hope that Röbby has been shopping for me!!!!

My children had the usual selfish christmas lists.  “Dear Santa, I want clarinet lessons, a few Criterion Collection DVDs, and a book about Ancient Rome?”  “Dear Santa, This year can you bring me some Atlanta Hip Hop music ?” “Mglmpfhg mmmphitteseesd”

This year I got them the stuff that I knew they really wanted, which was coincidentally exactly what was left at ToysRus this afternoon at 4PM.


What lil’ guy doesn’t want a machine gun?

Well, Merlin keeps saying he is against weapons and violence, but this is not an actual machine gun.  He will love it!

Starling is such a great lil’ mommy someday, even though she is going through a bit of a phase right now.  I found some babbies that she will LOVE!



Who knows what Hummus wants.  He is darling and so, so smart, but doesn’t express himself well yet.


Merlin says this is too babyish but it was near the door at ToysRUs.

I think I have done a fantastic job shopping for my littles.  I just hope that they have chosen thoughtful gifts for me!

Christmas Eve

I am ridiculously excited about tomorrow.  I am sure that Röbert has a great gift for me this year.  The kayak lessons last Christmas were an aberration.

I pointed this out to Röbby a few weeks ago. I am sure this is why Cari has been so standoffish. CUTE!!!!!

Meanwhile, the kiddos have been driving me berserk.  Merlin insists on singing annoying Christmas songs and Hummus just grunts and whines for attention.  Even Starling has been the teensiest bit irritating, with her constant reminders about gifts she wants.  Starling!  You are getting everything you asked for!  Relax already!

I am making Benadril shakes so that I get a few hours to catch up on Hallmark Channel movies this afternoon.

Are you excited for Christmas too?
