The more things change, the more they stay the same

This cartoon was drawn by J.C. Leyendecker in December, 1936.  Over the last 75 years the procrastinator's chaotic shopping on Christmas Eve hasn't changed much - stressed out mother, screaming child, frustrated father.  Only the prices have changed!

Ah, serenity.  There's no sleep like puppy sleep. 
What do you think they're dreaming about?

Bob and I leave for Minneapolis today to spend the holidays with our
daughter, son-in-law, and 10 month old twins - Jack and Caitlin. 
We're so excited to be a part of the babies' very First Christmas
even if it is in the frozen tundra. 

I will make a very serious effort to blog while we're in the far North country
but no guarantees.  Babies are way too much fun to play with - believe it or not,
even more fun than blogging!

Please accept my sincerest wish that your Christmas be special, safe and full of joy
and happiness for you and your loved ones.   -- Sarajan

"Mai ces vacances soient remplies avec l'amour,
l'arrangement, la sérénité, et espoir.
fleaChic prie que tous vos rêves
vraiment viennent vrai."
