Pig’s Ears and Pajamas

036041
Christmas brought a few surprises. Among them, the thing I least want to touch–a cured pig’s ear for our Chihuahua. (Who knew the elves run a pig’s ear processing plant up at the North Pole?)

The big surprise for the humans was a new onesie from my sailor. (That romantic devil!)

We had company staying with us over the holidays and when I opened his present, he explained the unusual choice of gift.

“She bought herself a onesie a few weeks ago and wears it so often it never gets washed! Now she has one to wear while the other one’s in the laundry.”

“Uh–thanks, honey!”

(For the record, this is so not true. Although I love my onesie, I do wash it regularly.)

One final Christmas gift arrived after the big day:

Fruitcake’s not my favourite, but this one’s soaked in brandy–mmm.
