On the Second Day of Christmas, the year 2008

LittleG is going to have an interesting Christmas season. She's getting dunked in the deep end of the pool this year, because she's finally old enough to enjoy some of the seasonal festivities.

She has already been to see the Christmas pageant at Nana's church. Last week, Santa Claus and Dasher the Reindeer came to school and the kids got to hang out with them and get their picutres taken.

One Sunday we are going to see Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer at a community theater in our area. And next Sunday, we are going to see the Nutcracker Ballet - the professional one - with my mom and sister-in-law and her kids.

Then begins the hysteria that is the Christmas gift giving season. We will do Christmas in Pecos with the in-laws, Christmas at our house after Santa Claus comes, and Christmas with my family the weekend after.

January will be a rude awakening for her when we get back to real life. In the meantime, she is happy to skip down the hall singing, "We wish you a very Christmas, we wish you a very Christmas, we wish you a very Christmas, and a Happy New Year!"

Very Christmas to you, and to all a good night!
