Merry Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza/Festivus/Yule/Holidays/Winter Solstice!!! It is Christmas Day here in sunny Arizona (it is actually a little cloudy and rainy...). My household was a frantic buzz as Santa delivered a generous haul of loot to our Charlie Brown Christmas tree over the chilly Christmas Eve. One particular young one was very excited! He went around knocking on all the gifts declaring that he could tell which ones were toys and which were "non-toys" just by the sound - like thumping watermelons, I guess. And, in case you were wondering, there are really only two types of gifts - toys and non-toys. The older you get the more non-toy gifts are delivered by Santa. But if you are particularly naughty, Mrs. Santa will deliver adult toys! ;) Finally, Star was ready to begin the gift opening ritual with her big digital camera with CIA issued telephoto lens, laser target acquire enabled aperture, and internal organ revealing concentrated UV X-ray multi flash. We took three photos. Everyone with exposed skin will be using Aloe Vera lotion for the flash burns.

We have to give Santa some credit once again. All presents were personalized to the recipients’ particular interests. The older boys got 'cool' gifts. The younger one got 'awesome' toys (no underwear or socks). And Mom and dad argued that each spent too much on the other.

I did notice something in regards to the gifts I received. Of the five presents from various Santas, two were Star Wars items and two were Jack Daniels products. One Yoda dressed as Santa bobble head (cool), one Darth Vader bobble head (sweet!), a Jack Daniels baseball cap (Dude!!) that the official Jack Daniels website does not sell anymore (lame), and a 1.75 liter bottle of Jack Daniels (auzum!!!). Star Wars and Jack Daniels. This has been a very good Christmas! I hope everyone else's has been at least as Groovy!
