With all the bad news, I totally forgot to say that there were great moments during the holidays too. And that’s never a good thingmcause I rarely lose sight of the little [big] things. Besides, it is rather uncharacteristic of me not to make a big fuss about presents and food, and presents, and snow, and presents and parties, and presents and stuff, you know?

So, fret not cause here it is, [cue fanfare] my much belated Christmas/New Years Eve post!!!*

Let’s start with Sid’s surprise birthday party:

Then, Christmas**:

** Once during a conversation, I mentioned to Sid I had never read any of the Dr. Seuss books. In fact, I didn’t even know they existed until I moved to Canada. So guess what he got me for Christmas??!!! ¬†And, if that weren’t enough, he also got me that super nerdy Star Trek door chime which is a replica of the communication panel seen on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701. It HAS motion sensors and it MAKES the original sounds of the door opening whoosh, the Red Alert klaxon AND the intercom whistle!. I mean, what’s a nerdy girl to do but to fall in love all over again?
