Don't you think she'd make a good elf? All she needs is a hat. And the pointy ears, of course.
I don't know what baby Layla got for Christmas, other than this red dress which I gather her other grandmother gave her, and a coupla toys. At four months, she's a little young to appreciate the holidays anyway.
Most of my present I already had - that was that very expensive computer upgrade, you may recall - and most of Rob's went to the down payment on the car, at his own request, but we still got a fair haul of stuff. He ended up with a whole pile of horror movies; I got a couple of movies and some really pretty jewelry - a couple of bracelets and a couple of pairs of earrings. My aunt gave me some quilting stuff that I hope I will use; I haven't managed to get any quilting done since my mother went into the hospital.
Nobody got mad at each other (which is a bit unusual, where my family is concerned) and nobody got sick, and the baby hardly even fussed, so on the whole it was a successful Christmas. Sure coulda been worse.
