Holiday for Him, 2014

This should also include a DVD of hundreds of episodes of “Scooby-Doo” in case he gets sick and needs you to help him sip Gatorade.

The ornamenting

A tradition with my girls that delights this dog year after year, this season in particular.

Annual holiday bokeh

When I asked the girls if we should get a real tree this year Leta said, “That seems like a lot of work.” Only ask Leta her opinion if you *really* want to hear it.

Holiday for Her, 2014

My child is at school which means she is not attached to my body which means I can take a moment to entertain myself.

Gifts with a bit of loving touch

Gifts with a little more warmth than anything plastic or sporting a screen.

Why we gotta have cheer?

Whenever I get a shot of Chuck mid-yawn I imagine him having a very thick Midwestern accent.

I’ll show Santa a thing or two

Normally I wait until Christmas Eve to wrap the kids’ presents so that when they wake up on Christmas morning it looks like the ground has exploded with bows and wrapping paper.

For him

I could always toss out the trademarked Holiday by Heather advice and tell you to hand him your credit card and hit the nearest mall. But what if he’s color blind? What if he gets lost? What if he brings back clogs?

The most boggled time of the year

Oh yes, we are so festive up in this dancery.
