On the first day of Christmas break we watched A Christmas Story. Isaac doesn't like the movie. He says it scares him. I don't know if it's Flip getting his tongue stuck to the flag pole, or the gruff dad who weaves a tapestry of obscenity while trying to fix the furnace, or the mean bully with yellow eyes, or the fact that poor Randy gets dressed up like a tick about to burst for the walk to school or the mouth full of Life Bouy Ralphie gets when he says the Queen Mother of all curse words. It could be the tension between the mom and dad over the major prize: The Leg Lamp.
At any rate, Isaac doesn't like the movie, so we are watching it while he sleeps in.
Sleeping in is another thing we did on this first day of Christmas break.
Later I'll get started on some Christmas treats. Maybe some white chocolate covered pretzels, caramels, or English toffee.
I've also got to mail out the rest of the Christmas letters.
