The Christmas Aftermath

So Santa delivered a drum set to Middle...

But Poppa (my Dad) wasn't very appreciative of Middle's artistic talent at 6am on Christmas morn...
Nor was Uncle Dan.

Oh look!  A new puppy!

Introducing Sunshine...

The newest member of...

MY SISTER'S FAMILY.

Do you people think I'm crazy?!  Do you honestly think I would introduce a dog into our already chaotic Trenches?  No sir, no way, no how.

I jokingly tell the boyz that they can have one or the other:  A Mom or a dog.  They always say dog.

Whatever.

Hope Christmas in your Trenches was just as loud and fun-filled as ours!

My friend Amy wrote this about my life here in my Trenches.  And damn her, it made me cry.

haha, well done! I was wishing I had come just to meet the new pup.

Ha! I thought you were going to have to get your head examined if you allowed a puppy AND a drum set on the same Christmas!

:)

I was freaking out, thinking about the puppy. No way is one coming into my house. No way. Uh-uh.

Your aftermath looks like ours, but ours has less kids. Good call on the dog. I can't even handle our two dogs.

What a cute puppy, though.. It would have been nice for the first um, 10 minutes. :-)

A drumset! What was Santa thinking? Better than a puppy, I suppose. Great post by your friend, btw. Just confirmed how wonderful you are.

Puppies and drumsets?? Oy.

I came by from Aayymmeeeee's blog. I think I love your family. (minus the drums)

Girl, we have that drum set. Courtesy of Santa LAST year. It is quite durable, I'm sad to report.

I knew you were too smart, unlike myself, to let another baby, I mean animal, in the house.

Happy New Year...and btw, read your friend's post. Amazing. Please, clone your husband. I want that love story. Heck, clone yourself. You're great.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the wonderful world of banging drums! Santa, bless his heart, delivered a Muppet Babies drum set to our five year old...that was twenty years ago...and a few years later, replaced it with a REAL junior set, which inevitably was replaced with a REAL full sized set, which was added on to a piece at a time, until our basement was covered with drums.
Words to remember: you get used to it, but don't ever try to listen to an Alison Krauss cd when the drumming begins. And don't let him drum after 9pm, or the police will be knocking on your door. Trust me.
