The Medieval Bestseller

I have about ten minutes before I have to get in the car and go up to my aunt's house. I'll be picking up my Aunt Trisha and Danny to go to my Aunt Ellie's church for their Christmas Eve service. I'm giving myself a few extra points this weekend for being especially ecumenical: my aunt's church is Foursquare and yesterday in addition to worship at my church in the morning, I went to a Catholic baptism at a very beautiful church in South Pasadena. I love ecumenism and it makes me sad that not everyone does.

Last night the extended Smith family got together for our Christmas party. It was fun and it was so funny to see Leila (aged 4) open my gift to her and gasp with adoration, "Oh, I've always wanted one of these!!!" when I'm quite confident that she probably has never seen one before in her life. It was strange, though, to see her open up my brother's gift to her, a plush Tigger doll, and give it a face and say, "I'm totally creeped out by that."

Other than that, not much going on. Tracey and I have decided that 2008 will be our year. Well, Tracey has decided that and, whereas I'd really like 2008 to be my year, I can't say I'm as confident as she is. It's really windy outside (I love it when it's windy) and feels like it warmed up in the past few days (right now it's probably about 75). Looks like tomorrow will probably be exactly the same as today. I was thinking when I went out for a walk today that it's difficult to believe sometimes that not everywhere is like this on Christmas. This is just how Christmas always in, so it's strange to think that there are many who will have to deal with snow, whereas if a kid gets a new bike here (or a new tennis racquet...), they can just go out and play with it that very day!

Ok, time to go. Have a very, very Merry Christmas!
