We had Christmas dinner at Laura and Mike’s, after getting spoiled with presents. One of the gifts Laura got us is a set of these dark wine-colored velvet drapes. Henry was especially thrilled by this because he’s spent the last 10 years living in a house that has pink see-thru curtains on the front window. (My house, my choice!)


Henry, thinking of how he’ll be able to prance around in his underwear now without those pesky Mormon missionaries seeing him from the sidewalk.


So many new rings!


Root beer float, made totally with vodka. Laura likes getting me drunk and watching Henry frown.



No one wanted to read the directions, so this game was put back into the box just as fast as it was brought out.


Malachi came with us! (Yes, he’s named after Malachi from “Children of the Corn,” and yes, he’s a boy.)

Speaking of corn, Mike made the most glorious creamed corn I have ever had in my life. It had GOUDA in it.






Apparently, when I get drunk, I try and breastfeed dolls.







It was a really great evening, but Chooch was really wound up and even though Laura assured us that he wasn’t bothering them, his behavior was embarrassing to us, so we brought him home and then searched the house for the wolves that raised him.

  1. CUTE!!

  2. This is totally weird–a few days ago, the name Malachi (yes, from Children of the Corn) popped into my head and I was thinking I needed to get something so I could bestow such a grand name upon it. Thank you for letting me, once again, live vicariously through you, Erin!

  3. I’m glad you guys could come to our place for Christmas. It does get pretty lonely just the two of us. And thank you for the all the presents. I feel spoiled =) I’ve been wearing the pink skelly nicklace since I got it. Hope you guys had fun. I will have to invent another drink for the next taco/burrito night.

    • Thank you so much for having us!! And I’m really glad you like the pendant – I saw it and thought it just screamed your name!

      There was one thing I really wanted to get you but it was sold out. So now at least I have a future birthday present for you!
