- Diane is quite capable of hosting a low key Christmas. It was perfect. Thanks again.
- We received a special box to keep our eggs in while camping so they don't break. The Americans call it an "egg carrier." The Spanish speaking call it a "portahuevo." The French call it a "cassot." Why do the French have a special word just for this?
- I can eat just one slice of buche de noel and be a much happier person than when I have two.
- Nothing will EVER make Sebastian happier than when he opened his copy of Animusic 2.
- Despite not being in the least bit religious, I really love the true Christmas carols best. Rudolph and Frosty are fine, but "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Oh Holy Night" are so stirring. (Maybe I just like songs that start with "O"...)

One more thing to make me misty eyed this season.
What I'd like to learn today:
