At the Gingerbread Party, when the crowd had thinned, Miss Linee announced, "I'm going to sit right here and play with this activity."
Tonight, Gardner E came over for some Christmas fudge and to see Bean and Bugg, when she witnessed a highly unusual event. For some time, Bean and Bugg drifted into the living room and played nicely, together. This is unusual, because they aren't up for much unless they are the center of my attention.
I stopped my conversation to listen for a minute to what type of play had them so engrossed. It was that "activity" again. Though the imagined events weren't much reminiscent of the that Holy Night. More like what you might find in Bethlehem in today's news. And what did my listening ear hear. Full scale war. "Look out lamb, watch out shepherd, get out of the way Jesus!" "Boom, bam, splat!" I hope they took cover in time. What can I say. Their daddy's gone to war.
Bugg throughly enjoyed helping make the fudge,
This little gadget was too fun. I've never seen one. It is a wand that produces static electricity and a book of these very thin, silver, mylar like shapes (some hoops, some butterflies, etc.) that you sort of direct with your wand. Can you see it floating above the wand? Actually, there were two wands and they had a big time chasing flying things around the house.
This was a little purse with a wiener dog, sporting a bow, inside. That little puppy-girl had about sixteen names by the end of the evening.
It was a fun, very Christmasy sort of evening- well, if you don't factor in the Holy War.
