It's not easy, being little

Thirty people in a small house that's crowded with a dozen, all ages from toddlers to great-grandparents, all talking at once in three or four languages, mountains of gifts, a half-dozen musical instruments all in use (but separate tunes), the traditional groaning board: it all adds up to a great Christmas Eve family party. But there are a few difficulties along the way.

Lost in a forest of legs.

Past her bedtime.

Mine, too. Goodnight, all! I hope your festivities are as happy-making!


  1. Just dropping by to say Merry Christmas. I've been away this month (needed a blogging break) but normal service to resume in January. Thanks for following and commenting so regularly this year.

    Hope your Christmas is all you wished for.


  2. I envy you. No, I laud you. I am far from family today. They are busy with other extended family. Such is the way of the world. Thank you for sharing yours.

  3. Looks like you had a nice (if crowded) Christmas. We did too, but only for the four of us. - Margy

  4. And a Happy New Year to you, too!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
