What’s that, little caterpillar?


DSCN4973You want me to eat you?



Nom nom nom!

This will be my last post of the year. We’re driving to visit my parents at their new home in Middle of Nowhere, NM. We’ll be off the internet, which means I’ll have to spend my time reading books and playing games, eating food that I didn’t prepare (my parents love to cook), and only optionally cleaning up afterward (right, Mom?). I’ll just be responsible for my little people (and I suppose that one big person I’m bringing along), and even with the little people I’ll have reinforcements. Sounds wonderful.

On the other hand, it’s going to be cold.

Our thin CA blood may have a hard time with that, but there’s supposed to be snow. In fact, my middle girl insists upon it. If we get that, the cold will be permitted.

But otherwise, there’s alcohol. I told my mom about the fabulously delicious eggnog cream liquor that I picked up at Costco. She said to bring it with us, and added, “Make room, even if you have to leave a kid behind!”

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all my blog buddies. I hope you’re also taking a break from blogging so I don’t get too far behind! πŸ™‚

See you in the new year!

  1. What a cutie! They are sooo cute at that age (when they’re not pooping or practicing projectile vomit πŸ™‚ ) Have a safe trip, and if you miss the snow in NM, you can always come here to MN. Rumor has it we’re getting snow for Christmas. And then cold. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (better bring an extra bottle of liquor πŸ˜€ )

    • Oh, yeah. It’s good stuff. I need to get back to Costco before they stop selling it, as it’s a seasonal item. The pumpkin pie liquor last year was also good. I’ll have to remember next year to see what flavor they come up with. Happy (nearly) new year!

  2. I was totally charmed by the two darling photographs and their captions. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. It’s lovely that you are spending time with your parents, two people who know you well, love you deeply, and will enjoy taking care of you and your family. Wonderful!
