Merry Merry

Nope, no schadenfreude today. Last night? Not pleasant. Full of illness and not so much sleeping. But since this is the last work day before Christmas, I just wanted to take a minute and wish you all a wonderfully happy holiday.

Thank you all for gracing the pages of this site with your presence. You really and truly rock. All my best to you and your families this holiday season.

Hey there - I too have been killer busy lately (though not too busy to stop by here for a quick read!)

Wishing you, Beth and Mia a happy and safe Holiday!!

Happy Holiday of Your Choice to you as well!

But inquiring minds need to know, what is Mia staring at? Is it Beth? Is it you? Is it a Teletubby?

Posted by: Airwick at December 22, 2006 10:23 AM

Merry Christmas. Enjoy your holidays.

All the best to Beth and Mia as well.

Posted by: ali at December 22, 2006 11:22 AM

so cute. It must have been hard picking a picture, but I like that one as well as the one on the card you mailed.

Posted by: jodi at December 22, 2006 11:29 AM

Merry Christmas to you, Beth and Mia! I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon in the Cactus-Fish household. Have a great holiday!

Posted by: Heather J at December 22, 2006 11:37 AM

Merry Christmas and a very happy holiday to the entire cactus, fish and bean family :)

Posted by: suze at December 22, 2006 11:43 AM

Happy Holidays to you too Chris. I don’t know where the name “rude cactus” came from, but you’re far from rude and far from abrasive….so I don’t quite and never have quite gotten it.

Thanks for sharing your day to day life with me over the last year….it has made my mornings (especially Monday mornings!) much brighter in some small way.

Posted by: PoeticaL at December 22, 2006 11:51 AM

Happy holidays to you and your family!

Posted by: fauve at December 22, 2006 12:07 PM

And Happy Holidays to you, Beth and Mia. That is my absolute favorite picture of Mia (thus far). So glad to have 'met' you via Sam's virtual bridal shower...hard to believe that was over a year already...

Posted by: Marilyn at December 22, 2006 12:14 PM

Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family Chris!

Posted by: jenn at December 22, 2006 12:29 PM

Merry Christmas, Chris! Have a wonderful holiday with your family.

Posted by: mamatulip at December 22, 2006 12:52 PM

I like how Mia's feet look disproportionately large in that picture. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) Thanks for posting your daily thoughts, deep and/or silly, here for all of us to read and enjoy, and best wishes to you and the Cactus-Fish clan for a beautiful holiday season.

I know I rock. You rock to.

Seasons greeting to all of you from little me:)

Happy Holidays!

Great photo - Mia looks adorable, and she totally has "Charlie Brown feet" with those shoes on (and the angle of the photo). I love when toddlers have shoes on that make their feet look so much bigger - like in the Charlie Brown & Snoopy cartoons. It's like they're going to break into the Linus & Lucy dance at any moment.

Posted by: erin at December 22, 2006 03:08 PM

Merry X-mas to the Cactus-Fish family. Thanks for a year of laughter and coffee stains on my keyboard. Looking forward to more of both.

Posted by: Nic at December 22, 2006 03:27 PM

Oh, I thought I liked ALL of Mia's pics, but you definitely picked the BEST!!
Happy holidays to you and your family, too!

Posted by: Celina at December 22, 2006 04:54 PM

And to you!
