Christmas in May

• 01 May 2008

I read once about a celebrity couple (was it Garner/Affleck?) who had one wish for their child: to be silly. I'm sure it's a lot easier to be carefree and silly when you employ a nanny, housekeeper, personal chef, and a personal shopper to take care of the daily and sometimes mundane :) But, that does not mean it can't be done by us non-celeb folks, right? We can be silly too...in our own kitchens...while we are doing our own dishes :)

Today is May 1, 2008. We woke up this morning to snow falling from the sky. Rather than be blue about this development, we decided to relish in the "silliness" of it all. We put on the Christmas playlist (Ella Fitzgerald's "Let it Snow" is playing now), did a little dancing and singing, and perhaps we'll even do a good deed for each family member to really get into the Christmas spirit! We'll see how the day flows...


Go ahead, be silly today. They don't know your dance moves aren't cool anymore!

Before we know it these silly days will be long gone :( Enjoy it while it lasts!

I can't believe you have snow!!! You need to move over this direction. The sun is out and it's 63 degrees right now! I'll send you some sunshine :) BTW your daughter has the biggest blue eyes!!! Totally gorgeous!
