The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

Zachary and Mathieu playing some kind of car game on my computer.

Chuck holding Coconut who is wearing her new Christmas dress.

Reagan and Amy. Amy got a haircut earlier in the day and is wearing her new slacks and top she got for Christmas.

Garrett and Andrew messing around with their cars.

Perusing the new collectible comic book Garrett bought recently, and discussing their huge collection of old and valuable ones.

Andrew, Samantha and Garrett laughing over the horrible sour oranges on the tree.

Garrett and Andrew with the vintage Coke cooler Garrett is taking to restore. He loves old vintage things. Andrew is more artsy like me, but it's Garrett who is most into vintage things.

After Reagan, Amy and the boys went home on Christmas Eve, Chuck and I went to Mass, then came home and went to bed. Zach and Mat were here early the next morning to show us a couple of their Christmas things. Around noon Andrew and Samantha came and then Garrett did too. We had ham, rolls, broccoli-mushroom salad, and sausage stars. Andrew brought some red wine to go with it.

When they got here, Chuck and Zach were out tracking wild hogs in the back pasture. There had been two out with the horses earlier, and they shot at one, but didn't get it. The wild hog problem has really gotten out of hand all over the area lately, but it better now than it was a couple of months ago.

Seriously, buy this DVD. The title is "What Would Jesus Buy?". I got mine from Amazon the other day. It's performance art. But is Reverend Billy for real? Yes, he is.

We've been moving...and still are. It takes forever. I bring maybe a box or two over each day. The thing is, we are moving from a larger house to a tiny one that has a separate studio (which will turn into more of a store room, possibly) and a separate laundry/bedroom. It feels like I am on a very boring vacation, inside of a hotel room. We have things strewn all over in both houses.I don't feel like doing anything for Christmas.

This is an awful photo, but I don't feel like redoing it. It's the front of our fridge.

I went over to our other house and dug this out and brought it here. It is my favorite Christmas decoration, although it looks stark without any warmth or greenery around it. I guess I could think of all this white, as snow. Andrew made this long ago when he was maybe 9 years old or so.

There are loads of shelves around here if you count the cornice (? How do you spell that?) boards and cabinet tops. We got our first Christmas card yesterday, so I put it on top of the living room window. I'll add more if we get any, as they arrive.

This is the Wandette's Christmas tree. The Wandettes are still at the other house, along with Violette Spice-Blythe and her house and Christmas trees. I guess the Wandettes will join their tree, soon, for a kitchen penthouse type of home.

A basket of dusty Christmas candles brought from the other house.
