Our Christmas was teeny. There was an advent calendar, some stockings, and the "tree" was a five-inch-tall manzanita twig stuck in a vase and draped with ribbons. I spent around $30 on each kid: an owl wallet stuffed with local coffee cards for Daney, a duffel bag with fishing lures in it for Dominic, and a fire fighter Lego bin with a Star Wars action figure for Rees.
My aunt Mary had sent the kids lovely things: books, music, Legoes, hiking boots.
After everything was all opened, we went on a walk and played games.
That was Tuesday. So Christmas is over.
Tonight we'll be at my dad's near Sacramento. And the family party there, well, it's hard to describe.
All I can say is that I spent more on the feathers for it than on the gifts I bought for my babies.
And have yourself the most joyful holiday!
