Every year my sister in law sends us a tin of freshly baked Christmas cookies. sounds yummy huh? Not hardly- she always throws them loose in a tin with a paper towel folded flat over top of them (to absorb the impact I guess shes thinking) and then puts the tin in a cardboard box. Then they are whisked several hundred miles to me by the magic of UPS. By the time the cookies arrive they are barely discernible as food let alone cookies. I dont have the heart to tell her and this has been going on for about a dozen years now. Oh well - the chickens will have a nice snack.

Heres this years installment of Holiday Crumbs as they arrived - and oh yes - the flavors have mingled quite nicely!

I've got two. At my granma's on christmas eve someone always reads the christmas story before we open presents. I think it bothers me because I've heard it so many times. At my granmother-in-laws house "Happy birthday Jesus" is sang at some point. There could be worse things I know, but I just find these two things to be kind of dumb.

I always love going to the in-laws and having my mother in-law give me a big ol hug and rubbing them big ole titties on me.

My grandma loves to tell everyone that "jesus is coming back!"

while it annoys the crap outta me I figure why take away peoples coping mechanisms right?
