My little girl Rykah got her pic taken with Santa about a week ago -
and I opened up the local paper today and there she was in full
color, gracing a good % of the front page. What a surprise!
Here's the pic they took formally and then the newspaper pic, if any
of you want to gander at my darlin lass. I don't know how she ended
up so adorable. Her dad and I are both pretty homely frankly -- the
gods of charming were smiling on her. This year she's gotten a bit
chubbier (so has much of her class - must be an age thing, they seem
to thin out by 2nd grade) and it gives her a real "cherubic" look. A
disguise, I assure you. ;-)
Mom 'stayed up trying to see Santa' (...) till 4:30am and Ry woke me
up at 7am to open presents (canIcanIcanIcanIcanI??? When?Now?When?
Soon?CanIOhPUHLEEEEEEZE?!), then I had to make a rare 'real'
breakfast, and then bake a pie for the family dinner at grandma's,
where about 60 people crammed into a space of about 250sq' -- felt
like China, talk about 'togetherness', I nearly 'merged' with several
family members I'm not even sure I've met!... and I've helped finish
the lite-brite picture, instructed in the use of spirograph, Ooooh'd
over the ballerina barbie, and I'm about ready to have an early end
to this day!
We had a great one. I hope you all did as well.
