I know what you're saying -- because you've said it to my face. Here, the "magic" begins the day after the day after Christmas (yes, there is one day of rest...!) So, anyhow -- that is the reason for my absence.
While I am busy with those elf kind of things -- my very talented son has been busy too. I am amazed to learn that Nicholas can recite passages from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar -- by rote! He has such a deep voice and he is so determined while doing so -- it is very wonderful thing for me to listen to. I know not everyone can appreciate Shakespeare -- and I am a little biased in a motherly kind of way -- so maybe you all can humor me...just a bit?
Nicholas is also becoming quite the Beatles/classic rock music fan. He is growing out of the nerdish and becoming quite the "most interesting man in the world"! Yesterday, he brought home this pencil drawing of...I will let you take a guess at who it is. Let me know in the comments section, okay?
