We had to take this on Thanksgiving because we weren't going to see each other on Christmas. Or kiss each other.

Another Kissmas in the bag,


Fear: Trump in the White House, which was just as scary as you’d assume.

Now, I’m finishing out 2018 with Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.

Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House."

From terrifying fact to terrifying fiction,

Fun brunch with Mana!

She may have had other reasons to be in town,


But where's Bubble Cat?!? Or Alien?!?

…for coming to visit last month!

It was the last time the weather was nice,


…located just outside Wrigley Field a bunch of times.

Still want glasses like that.

But only recently did I notice the weird fans sculpted into the base of Harry’s legs.

But not legs like that.

This mother and child combo is especially creepy.

Grey’s come a long way since her first encounter,

The 2018 Krampus ornament!

It’s a great addition to our growing Krampus ornament collection.

Also this year, we decided to start a new tradition where we buy each of the kids a monster/creature ornament. This year, we chose to start with the Yeti (AKA Abominable Snowman).

Grey’s ornament comes from Art of Melodious:

Grey's 2018 Yeti ornament!

And West’s from Red Marionette:

West's 2018 Yeti ornament!

Maybe next year’s monster will be Chupacabra! Or Cthulhu! Or Trump!

Five Krampus ornaments strong,


Old Poop!
