christmastime is here

It was the school play today. Grace finally agreed to be an elf (once she discovered - thanks in part to the old-school Rudolph - that there are actually "girl-elves" too). Her big part was to sprinkle magic dust on the other "presents" waiting to go into Santa's sleigh. She assured me by saying, "don't worry its not real magic dust, its just shiny glitter stuff." Too bad, I could use some magic dust!

We've got most of our Christmas shopping done and of course none of it is wrapped. I think we should add another color to the Christmas scheme (you know, red and green) - it should be brown. That way you could just slap a bow on a box delivered by UPS and feel good about it!

Jimmy had a bad ear infection last week and as a result decided that not sleeping between the hours of 1 and 3 a.m. and 5 and 6 a.m. was a good idea. His ear is better and we're hoping the sleeping will come back (and stay!). I must admit we are finally making progress. As a side note, I should tell you that during the day his favorite phrase is "Go Go Go!!!" Its pretty fun. He says it as loud as possible and shakes his little fists, like he really means business. It seems to get louder at red lights.

I've loved getting so many Christmas cards in the mail (thank you to those who have sent them and who might actually be reading this). So far I don't even have a Christmas card started, but I think I might know what we'll have for dinner tomorrow. Does that count for something?

I try again:

First, though, the lyrics:

We are Siamese if you please
We are Siamese if you don't please
We are former residents of Siam
There is no finer cat than I am

Do you see that thing swimming round and round
Maybe we can reaching in and make it drown
If we sneaking up upon it carefully
There'll be a head for you, a tail for me

We are Siamese if you please
We are Siamese if you don't please
Now we're looking over our new domicile
If we like we stay for maybe quite awhile

(Growl)
(Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty)

Do you hear what i hear? A baby cry
Where we findin' baby there's milk nearby
And if we look in baby buggy there could be
Plenty of milk for you, and also some for me

(Reow)

We are Siamese if you please
We are Siamese if you don't please
Now we're looking over our new domicile
If we like we stay for maybe quite awhile

We are Siamese if you please
We are siamese if you dont please
We are former residents of Siam
There is no finer cat then I am


There is no finer cat than I am (No I am)

There are no finer cats than we am

When I was a kid I thought we had cool cartoons; what did I know?>
