holiday cheermeister

Know what I've discovered? Christmas is a heck of a lot more fun when you have a toddler in the house. It's not easier to decorate (the ornaments were on permanent rotation on the bottom branches), and it's not easier to shop for gifts (I'm sure Banana Republic appreciates the 85 Cheerio souvenirs left in various and sundry corners). But it is more FUN. We have vicariously rediscovered how to really "do" Christmas. If you're ever lacking the holiday spirit, try Bug's recipe: Get your mom and dad to sing Rudolph 81 times in silly voices and then eat five cookies for dinner. Guaranteed glee.
