even though we don't have any special plans for christmas, i am starting to decorate. medea gave us her old tree, which i put up yesterday and put the lights on today. i am waiting for ornament hooks before putting any ornaments on the tree. it also has the tree skirt my mom brought when she visited last month. i have to remember to get the advent calendar, too. after all, december starts on saturday!

i don't know if santa is visiting this year. yoshi doesn't want the kids to receive any toys. they do have a lot! maybe something will show up in the stockings.
