The Jesus Story

Grandma: "and then an angel came to the shepherds and do you know what he said to them?"

Lily: "Don't be scared. I am not a monster. I am an angel and I am here to take care of you."

Also heard on Christmas Eve:

Lily: "David! David, come! It is time for the Jesus story!"

Are you like me and haven't even thought about Christmas cards and Christmas is next week and you are wondering if you should even try? Well here is a great option:

My friend and super designer, Emily has some brand new cards for Christmas this year. They are all darling. Check her out at

trestledesign.blogspot.com and pick your favorite. I love the 'O Christmas Tree' one. What about you?

She also has the cutest blog headers on the block! Seriously.

Mid June

The past few weeks have been strange. I started eating mayo, I wet my pants, I dreamt I was re-doing my freshman year in college (but maintained my status as wife, mother, etc.), and planned a trip to Disneyland (in real life, not in a dream). I feel a little as if my mind has left early on the California trip and left me to manage alone. I haven't made any huge mistakes in it's absence which has me even more worried. Did I use it before? Did I even use the 10% of brain capacity that an average human uses? Close friends would argue not. However, throughout this period of weirdness I have had one reason for comfort. There is one, solid explanation for all of the strange happenings (except maybe the Disney planning) and perhaps I should have opened with it. It would, at least, explain the incontinence. But then I couldn't end with a punch like:

I'm pregnant.

Here we go again.
