… to spend money.

Merry Christmas, family!  Your gifts are going to be in your email boxes a little early, but I thought I’d better just do it before I forgot!  Sorry that they’re so boring.  I have a few other little post-Christmas gifts for later on though …

Sorry I won’t be home to spend X-mas with you; I feel like this year of all years, I should, but I also feel obligations to the Carpus-in-laws – we’ve barely seen them this year.  I hope you’ll understand.

But have a great time with the cousins, and wish them the best from me!  I promise we’ll talk soon.
