We had a nice group for our annual caroling party, with folks from Sumatra, Java, sort of from Ghana, recently from "Kurdistan", Turkey, Texas, and Arkansas, including three kids in the group. Weather was perfect, and we got invited in for cookies at one house and for peanut brittle at Floy's. Then we hung out at our home for a while with hot chocolate and Laura's chocolate chip and gingerbread chocolate chip cookies. Sweet! This concludes my annual blog entry.

Last year our friend Super Samantha gave us the Sufjan Stevens Christmas collection: all 5 of his Christmas CDs. We listened a couple times and it was cool. This year we've been listening to more music, and we've played Sufjan a bunch and paid more attention to his lyrics. Laura's favorite Sufjan Christmas lyric: "K-Mart is closed". The line that most sticks in my head (from the same song, "Come On! Let's Boogey To The Elf Dance!"): "Santa Claus is coming, hear the banjo strumming". Best song title: "Get Behind Me, Santa!"
