I Forgot to Tell You

I’m a mom. Ok, I’m not. These are my relatives kids. But they’re one of my favorite things about Christmas, not these boys specifically, but kids in general. They’re fun. These two were kind of cute and gracious enough to let me get a photo op.

He’s not making a face. That’s just his expression. He’s like a Brad Pitt baby. He doesn’t even have to do anything cute, he just is. You might remember that I blogged about him last year – he’s the one whose family left him and went to Disneyland. (I’m just kidding Andrew if you’re reading this, they just went to 7-11).

Cyrus is the the 5th of 6 boys belonging to my step-sister. You can’t tell from this picture, but he is also the loudest. He’s only 2, but everyone knew he got jacket for Christmas (even though they all did) because when he opened his, he immediately put it on and followed his dad around the house for 30 minutes repeating the phrase “DAD! I got a jacket!” This is him in his jacket.

Bed Time

It’s been snowing A LOT, storming even. I love snow. But even more than snow, I love my bed. I love the Calvin Klein pillows I bought on sale at the Nordstrom Rack with Stacy covered in Christmas pillow cases that my mom made. I love the pale yellow flannel duvet cover over my down comforter. I love the extra down throws I’ve accumulated (it seems that a down throw is a good gift for your 30-something single female cousin whose name who got for Christmas – helps with cold nights, not that, yeah, anyway…). I love the extra blanket I sleep on top of because sometimes even flannel sheets just aren’t enough. I love my clock radio just within reach that is set to the station that plays Christmas music year round at the push of a button. It sits on the top shelf of a little collapsible bookshelf above my scriptures on the second shelf. I love the lamp with the reddish shade that matches the orangey-red flowers on my pale yellow duvet cover that gives just enough light for me to read. I love my bed so much that even though I get off work at 10pm, and I have the necessary toiletries and a place to sleep at work, I will take an hour ride down the snowy, slippery, treacherous mountain road with my co-worker, spend fifteen minutes digging my car out of the parking lot, drive thirty more minutes on unplowed city streets to spend four hours in my bed. Only to get up at 4, clean 6 inches of new snow off my car and retrace the route I made hours before. To sleep in my own bed, it’s worth it.

How Do People Get Like This?

“They gave us a thing [makes shape of card with fingers] that says we have free access.” 

“Do you have that thing with you?”

 “Uh, no, I forgot it.”

“Well, I can’t let you in without it. There’s a $20 charge.” 

“Ok, if I pay, can I get it reversed?” 

“Yes, if you find your thing, we will issue a credit.”
