first i want to say thank you so much to our friends and family for coming out to support david saturday and sunday. the event was spectacular! for me the best part was seeing all those kids look so proud. and of course to see david step into the spotlight for the briefest of moments. but now, now it's time to get serious. serious about christmas. i am throwing myself into it full tilt this week. i have pounds and pounds of butter, flour and sugar waiting oh so patiently for me. and paper and red envelopes and stamps, just sitting there sad and alone. well no longer! i head the call. i say boo to you cold weather, i'll stay warm in front of the oven. if you need me, that's where you'll find me. oh and can you believe i forgot about my own blog birthday? oops. four years on december fourth! that doesn't seem right, but i checked the numbers and indeed it is. i'll probably have more to say about that once i emerge from my christmas frenzy, but for now butter beckons.
