we are ready for christmas!
quick aside, a few months ago, i was sitting on a plane in front of a little girl who was on her very first flight. as soon as she was seated and ready to go, she was under the impression the plane would immediately take off (wouldn't that be nice!) so, she very sweetly kept saying, "reeaddyyy, reeaddyy." when, at last, we finally started taxiing (for about 20 minutes in all) she became very concerned (we still weren't flying) at that point she started offering helpful advice to the pilot: "higggheerr, hiiggghhherr." when we finally landed, she burst into applause and said just as many times, "good job! good job!" i'm sure other passengers were annoyed, but i thought it was hilarious. "reaaddyy" has become an inside joke in our marriage. any time i'm impatiently waiting on something (which is a good amount of the time) i say, "readdyy, readdyy."
so, we are ready for christmas! and loving it in our new digs!!
