This really is the most wonderful time of the year, if you ask me, and here are some first half of December pictures.  From the neighborhood Christmas cookie contest party to the lighting of the first Hanukkah candle in Brooklyn; from Thursday night Advent services at the church to a Friday night Polar Express movie in pajamas; from our early morning by the Christmas tree family reading of The Mysterious Benedict Society to our nerd-out family Sun Salutations to get the day started right; from singing carols with friends to wrapping presents for each other; from Huck losing his fifth tooth without me present (hoping to never witness such a gross thing) to getting news of dear friends moving away soon; from the last Storefront Science class to Candlelight Night at Huck’s school … ’tis the season for less sleep and celebrations ’round every corner.

I may be the only one who feels this way in our family of three, but the more the merrier!

I totally agree that this is the best time of the year for you. Except Fall which is your favorite time of they year and Summer because going to the beach is your favorite thing to do and Spring which signals the end of Cold Winter days and the beginning of Warm days to come. I copied actual quotes from your former posts.

Let’s face it, if no one is bleeding, you can really see the bright side of just about anything. Especially if they are bleeding and you don’t have to see it.

That is a really good point, Stinky. Thank you. Brownies are on their way.

Stinks does make some good points, and I appreciate the research he did, finding your old quotes. But looking at these photos, I’m convinced: this IS the best time of the year! Happy holidays, Schremmers!!

p.s. I would like one of those rice crispie cookies, please.
