Pretty Madli being modeled by my dining room chair. She will go into the Christmas stash drawer.
Christmas is on my mind. I haven't really liked Christmas for a while now; such high expectations; so much work. My husband and I were discussion it; he still can't belief I've become so hostile to that holiday. I told him I wanted to drop out; like to go Mexico or charter a sailboat. We discussed some more, and decided to float the idea by BIL and SIL. BIL passed to SIL, whose first response was....

I'm proud to have such a trooper in my extended family. No hesitation, just straight to the problem solving. So between us, we e-mailed sites, suggestions, ideas, and last weekend made our choice and booked. Husband even bought tickets.
