Friday Already?

Seriously?  All this holiday-ing and time off and no school is really messing with my concept of time.  I can only imagine what it’s doing to Tad.

Anyway, it should be Flashback Friday, but I’d rather be in the here and now, and the here and now is… NIECES!!!

(And their parents, too.)

We had our annual Christmas luncheon with family and friends yesterday, and this year it was at my house.  Q-Bee brought the girls, while the Captain stayed at Grandma and Gichan’s place and hung out with Gichan.  The Webmaster and Tad joined them there to escape the estrogen.

I finally got to hug my youngest niece, little Bette, yesterday for the very first time.  She is only five months younger than Tad.  I have a lot of hugging to do over the next week.  Plus the rest of the B Squad – Berry was ready for a hug the minute she walked in my door.  Belle was constantly coming over to me for another hug.  (It might have had something to do with the cupcakes and hot chocolate I’d promised them, but maybe not.)  And Beth, who has a cold and jet lag, still gave me a really big hug once she got acclimated to her new surroundings.

They are all so sweet and I have missed them oh-so-very much.  And Ane was absolutely in heaven – cousins to play with!!!

Tad – well, they’re all GIRLS.  So what?

Rerun… found a partner in crime.

With his brother away, the Batcave was fair game.  Bette was more than intrigued by it, and Rerun willingly aided and abetted her curiosity.

Today, we will celebrate a belated Christmas with them.  I am so excited that they are all here!!  The only possible thing that could make this better are the two missing pieces of the cousin puzzle – Little Cousin and Little Cowgirl.  (And their parents, too.)

Aunt Deanna needs more hugs for Christmas, girls!
