    Two Brooms called and invited us to eat leftovers at her house last night. Normally, I jump at the chance to not cook. Last night, I'd have cooked a 5 course meal for 22 before I'd have gone out there. I offered to bring the kids (we had easy child 2 last night), but they declined, too. So we stayed home and ate spagetti.
    Then wee difficult child and easy child 2 got to discussing difficult child 1. We decided to do something really, really stupid. We baked him his favorite pumpkin pie, buttermilk biscuits, and made and canned a small batch of grape jelly.
    This morning, we smooshed it all in a box, stuffed it tightly with bubble wrap and paper, and air mailed it to him in CA. That's one expensive pie.
    No idea if it will make it, but three smiling people enjoyed the heck out of trying, and it made our souls feel good.
    THAT'S the spirit of family I want to create.
    (and I almost miss difficult child 1)

    Merry Christmas Star - Dreams do come true - let us know when yours arrive.

    Shari, difficult child I will love the package. He will be totally surprised. After he gets it, call him up and give him Star's address. He can share a meal with her and check out her pies and newest pets.

    (oh, and if you forget to send Star her biscuits, just tell her the pony ate them.)
