Christmas Cheer

Greetings!  It is starting to look a little Christmasy around here.  We have delayed putting up a tree, because frankly every square inch is being used to support life already.  But we gave in today to a small artificial tree, very basic, no flocking, no glass ornaments, practically child and animal proof.  Although, really there is no such thing:)  At any rate it feels good.  Julie also started Christmas baking today with caramels and chocolate Bavarian mints.  The smells are wonderful.

I have had a nice day.  And I also have something kind of fun to share today.  So let's see if I can tell it well.  Yesterday around dinner time, Mel and Julie and I and a few of the kids were sitting around the table, watching different versions of "What Does the Fox Say" on Mel's ipad.  Did you know there is even a medical one? (What does the spleen do?)  Anyway, we somehow got to talking about what you would have to major in to be a surgeon.  Mel said, "I guess some guy who majored in Zoology must have made this crazy video."  Julie said, "Sew/ology?  What is that?  Some kind of quilting class?"  Mel said, "No, Zzzzooooo/ ology."  I think I said that it was about the study of animals.  Julie's light came on..."Oh, I thought you said SEW/ology."  Mel said, "Well, maybe that might not be so bad for a surgeon to take some sewing know, suture one, suture two, suture three and purl!"  We all cracked up over that.  He has such an imagination!
Tonight we are going to a bishopric dinner.  It should be fun, and besides it will be yummy.  I think the menu is prime rib.  We have a few cattle ranchers in our of them being the new bishop:)  So beef is always what's for dinner!  I kind of like that.  I hope all is well and happy in cyberspace this evening.  Once again I must say that I sure like that school is over!  I am winding down....little by little. I hope life is good wherever it takes you!  HAVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVGN!!!  Melody
