FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS....

Gabe called this morning and I was able to wish my Grand-Oompa a Merry Christmas.  And for the record, Santa is officially on my kaa-kaa list.  He brought Rocky a drum set... against my wishes.  Not cool!  Oh, but you should have seen her face when she opened the box!  (now if I can only convince her to keep the dang drums IN the box!)

Did I say the magic was gone?  Silly me... its not about Santa, its all about family.  The magic is most definitely still alive, no matter how old you are.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hahahaha!  I just realized that our tree lights are visible in the picture.  We use icicle lights because we're too lazy to get the single strands and wind them all around and around and around the tree.  We just take a strand of icicles and toss it over the front of the tree... POOF!  Instant tree trimming!  It might have worked if we had used the green wire strand instead of the white one.

Maybe, just maybe Rocky will do well on the drums! My friend bought her son drums and he now plays with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers! Have a great Christmas! Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

Hey Dorn:
Had this idea thrown at me, so will forward it to you.  Why not give your Ooompa a kayak to go with the Drum Set.  Then invite her to take the kayak as far out into the lake as she can and practice her drums there.
MerryChristmas from your Hawaii Santa (now unemployed for eleven months).

Oh great! Another house with a box full of noise.  We now have an electronic drum pad, an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar.  My ears are so very tired.

Merry Christmas!
