Hello New Friends and goodbye Christmas!

Aren't they sexy? Hmmmm? I am in love! They do everything in the world that a washing machine and dryer can do. In fact later I will be stuffing the boxer in there, and then the leather couch. Perhaps the china and then Honey's cute little Porche.
Everything comes back out clean and smelling good!
I will have washed everything in the house, including comforters, pillows and sleeping bags. Then.... I will sit down and smoke a whole box of cigarettes.

Now on to that game... "One of these things is not like the other... One of these things just doesn't belong..."
This is my Nativity set, that was my mothers, and now mine. I just love it. Anything look out of place?

Okay, the stable was actually built my daughter as a history project. It is supposed to be a house built by the Creek indians. But it fits in well.
Now this guy, is out of place, a bit!

He came home with us after a Holiday Dinner at the local Chinese restaurant.
The girls were 3 and 4 then, and matter of factly put him in the Nativity scenario. They felt like he needed to be part of the celebration of baby Jesus being born. It worked for me. We believe what we believe. Baby Jesus was born, and everyone was happy.
My father on the other hand is very strict about who was invited to be in the Nativity. No new guys! No new Chinese guys either. When he visits, Pap Pap always mysteriously relocates Budda to somewhere in the house and it's always like, "Where's Waldo". He joined our Nativity 7 years ago, I think he's comfortable with the crowd. It's the weirdness that makes my family complete!

Disclaimer: This is meant as no disrespect for any religion. We however are Christians. We put stars on the top of our trees and other people put top hats on theirs. Believe what you want and decorate how you like.
