Last Christmas was the pits. We all had tonsillitis and/or the flu. And we had a three month old baby. We didn't decorate or buy a tree or anything. It was sooo sad. The only saving grace was I was just barely able to drive the boys through a snow storm to Mom's house - and promptly got stuck three blocks away. Phil and Sarah bailed us out and soon there was hot soup to warm our bellies. But still - it wasn't quite the jolly holiday it could have been. This year will be different! This year we'll do things up proper! Martha Stewart - watch out!
