The after turkey activities of three homes

Well, we've sailed past Thanksgiving at an alarming pace, and I know what yuletide events are happening...

in Pennsylvania home:

>>>Mom is putting out all the decorations, complete with snowman singing "Santa Baby."

>>>Dad is making promises he can't keep about the date the Christmas card will go out.
*Said father would like to point out that he is the one that
puts up the star and angels earlier attributed to Mom.

>>>My brother will be bugging me any day now for the wish list I haven't yet given him.

>>>All prepare for my sister and I to return for the holiday.

in Massachusetts home:

>>>The students are all finding it more and more difficult to do homework, while simultaneously their homework load/holiday extracurriculars are increasing.

>>>The professors are piling on all those projects they meant to assign earlier but put off because they were being "nice."

And introducing...
in Peru home:

>>>The cooking class at the church is decorating galletas de la Navidad (possibly more on that later).

>>>Exchange students are simultaneously dreading and eagerly anticipating their return to the states.

>>>Dani is study study studying for exams this week.

Okay, so I really only have papers and presentations, but 'tis enough, 'twill serve. Ask for me tomorrow....


  1. I beg your pardon. The angels and star are the responsiblity of "Dad". The Christmas card is started and if I weren't so busy correcting my daughter blog it may be finished by now. Be careful or your "story" in the Christmas letter may be more interesting than this blog.

  2. Correction duly noted, father dear!

    And I don't have much hope for my story in any case.

  3. Dani ! (or blog bud, or whatever more intriguing names you can come up with...)

    Loving the father/daughter banter going on here... and your writing is really getting me in the mood for Christmas! Bizarre? But read your blog, got all happy and filled with festivity :)

    Feel for you and the studying, best of luck though...sure you'll ace your presentations !


  4. Roma/amico bloggie!!! (confession: I had to look up the italian, but it was totally worth it)
