here's what's really going on

Things are busy-busy in our cozy cottage in the country,
as we prepare for Christmas.
We are having the governor over for rib roast, served
with red wine from our vineyard.
And Lori will make her award-winning 5-layer Fudge Cake
from the cocoa beans she picked in Guatemala last spring.
We will hop on our chartered jet Christmas afternoon for three weeks in Maui.
Then come home to relax before going back to work
at our Fortune 500 company.

The children all have 4.0's in school and hope to travel overseas
to study next semester.
They are currently working on learning Greek, Latin, and Hebrew.
Their holiday project is to write a thesis in each language.
Every evening they knit sweaters for the homeless from our sheep's wool...

Wait, wait, wait!!

...This isn't our family Christmas newsletter.

Silly me.

Here's what's really going on...

My new hens are laying eggs now and I couldn't be more tickled.
Look how little they are compared to my big hens' eggs.
Although, this is no doubt a double-yoker.

Basketball is in full-swing.
And the fans couldn't be happier.

Lucy always begs to go watch Nick play...then is bored after 3 1/2 minutes.
But aren't her bangs cute?
We cut them on a whim the other night.
As with any vain woman, she was highly distraught afterwards.

Nick's epic talents...

Well, that's all I have for you now.

Please excuse me,
I need to get back to writing our Christmas newsletter.

HAR! Yea! My Christmas letter will be along in May or June!
I don't want to hear about the latin and greek. You have at least 3 bi-lingual kids!! Isn't that enough pressure?!! I don't think I spelled Bi-lingual correctly ...
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

(Lucy's bangs are super cute!) Sheri

You could also write fantasy fiction when you get bored with your life of ease.

Um...on the Christmas letter...aren't you mixing yourself up with the Obama's? Or maybe you will see them in Hawaii...

Cracking up over Lucy's angst after her haircut. Just had that with Molly. ARGH.
