Not All Play

Having this much snow makes everyone happy during winter break, because it occupies the kids. The kids are entertained and the parents are relieved of "bored" children for a few hours. It's a win-win situation! But it's not all play during spells like this; the man in the back of the truck is shoveling snow out of the bed of his truck, which he then had to dig out of the snow in order to move it. In spite of the work, though, this winter wonderland sure makes Christmas that much better. The wreath on this house was beautiful before, but the snow accentuates it, I think. I love this time of year!

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

You cannot know the pain it causes me to admit that I am a mere mortal (and that the magical elves on my staff have little respect for my authority or their salary packages. Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape and the elves that have shown up for work all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking, playing cards and telling dirty jokes!

Anyway, myself, Henry and Ezra, would dearly like to wish you a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

We hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your Yule logs firm and that Santa treats you kindly this year!

So gorgeous and still so envious of your lovely snow.
