It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Yes, I found the battery charger...or rather A. did at the bottom of the diaper bag. So instead of depressing posts about toxic chemicals, I can show you pictures of decorating for Christmas at Chez Curry.

Christmas stockings for each of us, compliments of my mother who made all of them. They are displayed on the couch for the picture, since to hang them we must double them up, having only 7 stocking holders. (I thought that was so many when I bought them 5 children ago.)



TM and A.


L., held by B.

K. who was a little excited about the creche dolls I made (many years ago).


P. -- in a rare moment of photographic cooperation

And one last bit of baby news...G. and L. had their 6 month check-up today and are doing nicely. They are nearly exactly the same size; 1 ounce difference in weight and 1/8 inch difference in length. And they are little tiny peanuts...healthy and happy...but peanuts all the same.

Just one question. How does a mother of 9 have a WHITE couch??? You continue to amaze me.

The couch is a hand me down and because the stockings are so artfully displayed you don't see the huge, pinkish stain on the back where K. threw up last year after eaten too many red candies while we were decorating Christmas cookies. It definitely looks better in a picture than in real life, where it has an overall grayish, dingy tinge.

Love the stockings! Looks like you guys had fun. :-)

Oh Eliz. Thanks for making life real! You make me smile! I suppose you normally have a blanket hanging over the back to cover the stain?

What about the smell??? LOL!

We are currently in the market for a new couch. I am thinking brown leather this time because I've heard throw-up, pee, and pop doesn't phase leather. (notice I said "pop" not "poop" because I think I'm past the poop on the couch phase--but definitely entering the pop phase with lots of teens.

Now if I can just find someone who wants to give/sell me a beautiful brown leather couch for cheap/free!
