Merry Christmas (eve) to you!

This year I made a registry for my son's bday/Christmas (4 days apart). What do my dad and stepmom get him? A stuffed rat, and a grateful dead teddy bear. Needless to say neither of those were on his registry, but the dog did get a chew toy out of the deal.

If grandparents didn't want us to selectively remove certain toys from the junk flow, they wouldn't give so many piles and piles of gifts each year.

Merry Christmas!

I agree on the editing. I even edit new toys that I don't like. Up high away they go! Doesn't anyone read the package? Like for instance giving an Easy Bake Oven to a 4 year old is a no-no where the package says for 8 YEAR OLDS? Sigh.

Hope your voice returns. Take some Claritin. Sometimes it helps, surprisingly.

Merry Christmas!

I totally hear you on the Cavalcade of Crap that comes from the IL side of life.

Hope it is truly merry.

Merry Christmas to you!

I always think I sound like Marge Simpson when I lose my voice. I spend most of the time amusing myself by saying "Homer!"

Merry Christmas!

Merry Merry Christmas.

Sorry to hear about your voice.

I do understand what you mean about the toy thing. Our house looks like Geoffrey the Giraffe walked in and threw up. Too much and they can't possibily play with it all. We are working on the purge too.

Try some tea with honey and lemon, because even if it doesn't work, at least it tastes good.

Yes, Merry Xmas Eve! :)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Kristen!

We're doing the "editing" here, too. Actually, we received a few toys that we already have, so they're quickly being put into bags and given away tomorrow. Everything else that stays will have to take the place of an older toy to earn it's place in the house.

We have sickness is our house today as well. So Christmas is postponed. So was Thanksgiving this year. Weird.

Hope your voice returns soon! I was voiceless a few weeks ago, right before I had to sing in a concert. No fun.

Enjoy your Christmas and get well soon!

Clapping and banging on tables. And not so effectively, I might add.


I need a whistle.

On the bright side, you may find that one magical thing that grabs your kids' attention without yelling. If you do... PLEASE tell me what it is!

Merry Day-Before-Christmas!

Harvey Fierstein, baby. That's hot.

"Editing." I like that. I've been calling it a purge, which is what it's going to feel like I'm sure. Luckily I found a resale shop run by a local church that sells toys or donates them to needy families in the area.

Hope you got your voice back!!

Too bad about your voice. With three kids by yourself, it would probably be more fun if you lost your hearing instead... :(

Merry Christmas/Christmas Eve!

happy christmas!

merry christmas :-)

er, christmas eve to you?
