I need a Christmas icon. Yesterday Monkeys got more done on the TARDIS (some side panels, the start of the POLICE CALL BOX sign, the second upper shelf, and some lights for the DW figures - looks amazing). All that was said not to brag, but as a preface for explaining it meant the living room was out of service yesterday. I need to take a picture of it, though, cuz he's doing an amazing job and it is totally bragworthy.

Anyway, since the TARDIS got shoved back into it's corner this morning, this afternoon we put up the Christmas tree! Yay! I think it's our best location and decorating job so far! Look at me all happy! I also hung a bunch of tinsel around various doors, and we started on decorating the mantel. Right now I'm wrapping presents. I haven't finished shopping for everyone, but the tree looked so lonely I wanted to get some stuff under it. I am a TERRIBLE present selector. It's insane. Seriously. But that's okay, right? Just know that I do love you, even if it might not look like it should you open a gift from me. ;)

S2K - we miss your Yule Party. :(
I miss the running around like crazy lighting candles and shivering outside by the Yule log.
I miss the share dish dinner.
I miss the gift exchange for those with gifts to give.
I even miss your house; is that strange? I remember where everything was (the couch, the tv, the bookcases, the wall decorations). I miss the feelings I had there.

This year at work instead of doing the angel tree we are buying for a family friend of one of our coworkers. It's a single mom of four who has had a rough year. Earlier this year one of her daughters was in an accident that took the life of another of our coworkers. Her daughter was hospitalized for a long time in really bad condition but recovered. Recently the mom was in an accident where she lost a leg amongst other injuries. Obviously she hasn't been able to work, and their bills were adding up such that they weren't going to be able to have Christmas presents this year, so our coworker asked permission from the office to let them be the our angel tree selection.

Anyway, I should get back to wrapping.

I really miss our Yule party too. I miss making candles like crazy a couple of weeks out. I understand about you missing our house. If you guys were to move, no matter how cool the new place I'd always miss the one you had now. I miss our house, even though it was too small for all our people.

We miss you guys. The holidays just are not the same without our family.
