time is flying by. i can hardly believe there's only two weeks left of the year. (well, sixteen days.) i am looking forward to seeing friends next week! my christmas shopping is done, unless i find something for yoshi. i'm pretty sure he's not going to buy me something, and he seems to be a 'bah, humbug' sort of person about presents. but, the kids have a couple of things from me and my mom, and that's enough. no candy, though! maybe next year.

hiro has scarfed down three mikans in about fifteen minutes, so i think one or two will find their way into his stocking! funny kid.
