Christmas Past

Merry, Merry!

Later today Uschi and I will be leaving for Dad’s for some as-yet-to-be-determined length of time and even though I got a lot done yesterday, I still have no less than 80 bagillion things to get done before then.

Anyway, I am very sorry to say that for the first time in many years I didn’t manage to get cards out.1 Nevertheless, I do hope you all have a truly wonderful holiday season, whatever you are celebrating!2

See you all in the new year! *mwahs*

  1. And try as I might, no portrait with Santa for Uschi because the line was ridonkulous!
  2. And doubly so if you aren’t celebrating anything because I very much understand that situation.

Devil’s (Food) Cupcakes

You know, the irony of these cupcakes has only just dawned on me.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (in ASL)

This is truly adorable and hauntingly beautiful (even if you don’t know sign language):
