Christmas Errata

The May Queen and I have safely arrived in Michigan, and are currently ensconced at the in-laws. Visions of building a snow fort are surely dancing through MQ's dreams, so you know what we'll be doing in the morning. The May Queen is continuing to earn her inherited title of "The Director" (which she took over when my grandmother died over 4 years ago... yes, we knew even then...) by declaring things like "We will each open two presents, and then Mommy will make scrambled eggs while I play with my newly opened toys, and then we will open the rest of the presents." Which is pretty much how it went down. The Big Guy and I got a kick out of opening all the presents she got for us... things of "hers" that she wrapped for us... many of which were ours to begin with (like the Detriot Lions stuffed animal she stole from her daddy years ago). She did take into account our tastes, though. She gave me several shark story books. Even though I didn't win over at Magpies, The Big Guy got me a Wii fit! Or will get me one... as soon as the stores restock. He also is having an apron made for me... I expressed that I wanted one that went over the shoulders and not my neck (that always bothers me) and couldn't find one... and it turns out that a woman at our church makes aprons. How cool is that? So I am pleased as punch with my soon to be arriving gifts. After opening presents I packed us up, and we nearly didn't make it to the airport due to INSANE traffic caused by a wee bit of fog and overacting bridge officials, but we made it, and The May Queen has already scaled the snowy mountains a few times, at 10:30 at night, and who can blame, her really? What an adventure for a little southern girl.

Going North for Christmas sounds WONDERFUL! K's physical therapist went home to Massachusetts for Christmas and I was so jealous she was leaving the heat for REAL SNOW!

Glad you guys had a wonderful Christmas!!

Merry Christmas! I hope it was wonderful. I covet the Wii fit, but I got an iPod Nano and am thrilled with it...

Merry Christmas! And Christmas in Michigan, ohhh, I could feel you getting closer and closer.

Now it's on to a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to the Maypole Family. Thanks for all the stories this year. I look forward to lots more. And maybe next year I will finally manage to have a dadgum May Day party....

Merry Christmas to all the Maypoles! Hope you have a wonderful visit in the snow.

Happy Holidays!! We moved to NOLA from SE Michigan, so I'm tickled to see that you all are back there for the holidays! My son is desperate to visit because he knows it snows there.

We got a Wii, too -- a surprise gift from friends of ours in PA. (Long story, I'll get to it on the blog when I've recovered from the shock.) We'll have to compare family notes about games... :-)

Yay for the Wii Fit! I got Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii because all the Wii Fits were gone...not complaining, I got a little Xmas cash stashed and I hear the stores are re-stocked with them already! :)

Merry Everything and Happy New Year!
