As long as we have our priorities straight...

Scene: Kitchen table, early morning, Levi is cleaning up, Sara is finishing eating. I (Mom) have just banged out a little morning "wake-up" rhythym for fun on the drum set.

Levi: Mom! I didn't know you could play the drums like that. You play the drums better than you play the piano.

Mom: Ha!

Levi: Really, mom. You should be in a rock band.

Long pause while Eric and I chuckle.

Sara (who had been listening intently but never looked up from her CEREAL): You'd still have to make breakfast, mom.

Hi Nortons:

thanks so much for your Christmas card/letter--LOVED IT!! How clever. I suppose incorporating "turnoffs" and "turnons" would've been wholly inappropriate. Your kids are wonderful (keep those youtubes coming!) and it was good to see you and the girls, Heather, on Sunday evening. We wish you a safe and joyful trip to Florida, a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year! Love and best always,

The Swensens
