The Incredible Edible E

I'm starving. Dunno why, I ate dinner damn it.

We haven't wrapped ANYTHING yet... this is "the year" for Terra, she is SO friggin excited. We were tracking Santa on NORAD and in the middle of a Santa update video, she ran off yelling, "I'm going to sleep now!"and ... went to bed! I had to go get her out of bed to leave milk and cookies and carrots (for Rudolph of course.) But she was so excited, she grabbed the milk and poured it, and got the package of carrots out and ran off again - I had to call her back again, like, hullooo... cookies?

It is 8:30, Terra is out cold - which means she'll be up by 6am. And I'll be up all night wrapping. But like I said, this is "the year" for Terra, and if I'd have wrapped the gifts and kept them under the tree, she'd have totally figured out that Santa didn't bring them.

I'm not so much in the Christmas Spirit this year. I was till Scott lost his job... now, I'm just loving every single second of watching Terra. There are not a lot of presents - but there is so much magic in her eyes that I can't help but smile.

Hope your Christmas is even half as awe inspiring and magical as hers is!


  1. Merry Christmas, E. Yup, it's all about the kids, isn't it? Hope that the magic lasts for Terra for many Christmases to come.

    BTW, J didn't go to bed until 10:30, then woke up at 2:30! I managed to get him back to sleep amid fears that Santa might not come at all. Yup, the kid has an anxiety issue. :)

  2. Merry Christmas, Erin, and wishing you every happiness in the upcoming year.

  3. How old is Terra?

  4. She turned 5 in August

  5. Ah, wonderful magical age!

  6. I'm sorry to hear of that job loss.

    But like my lovely wife has to tell often: "Things will work themselves out. They always do." I haven't the time or energy to tell you what the woman means to me at this moment.

    Anyway. Hearing about Tara and her excitement about Christmas puts a smile on face.
