Merry Christmas to the Readers and a Shot at a Prize

First and foremost I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. Hopefully your day has been somewhat similar to mine, which generally has consisted of:

- Watching small children opening presents and emitting sounds of glee.
- Staging a full-scale extraction to get the toys out of the packaging, using power tools and everything
- Watching the youngest experience her first present-opening-euphoria, where even after everything was opened she was frantically searching for more
- Eating stuff
- Simultaneously playing dollhouse, Legos, Wii, and Memory in an attempt to keep everyting happy

So as you can see, it's been an awesome Navidad so far.

The Mrs. HTF already posted a little something.

I also wanted to thank each of you, or at least both of you who read this, for reading along with HTF this year. It's been an interesting year and between my family, the election, the olympics, your questions/comments and other real-life stuff there's been no shortage of material. I've had a ball reading your comments and pseudo-answering your questions. Thanks for making this a great year that way.

In the spirit of all of the other top-10 lists of everything that get published at year-end I'll be doing my own top-10 posts list in the next week or so. But I'm asking for your help, and there could be a little something in it for you too. Please post a comment or drop me an e-mail with your favorite HTF posts of 2008 (that's assuming you liked at least a couple of 'em). You don't need to provide justification or anything (unless you wanna), just a list of 3-5 is fine. Here's the fun part - everyone who submits a list will be entered into a drawing for fantastic prizes which you're guaranteed to either like or regift to someone you don't really dig. I'll randomly pick a winner. (It's Christmas, I'm in a giving mood)

So thanks again for playing along with the blog this year. I hope you're having a great day with family and friends. As for me, I'm off to build a lego castle if we can figure out how to get the actual legos out of the box.

Much luv,

MERRY CHRISTMAS! FELIZ NAVIDAD and all that good stuff!! :)

1.Becoming One With Nature and using Tweezers to fix it (not that I like to laugh at your pain...but seriously...after saying "WOW! THAT'S GOTTA STINK" for several hours after reading this, it left a lasting impact!)

2.The Race that was a little to long

Merry Christmas to all of the Pope families out there (Sarah, too, whatever her last name is now). By far my favorite is Attack of the Killer Air Quotes. It's the blog that got me addicted and telling everyone about your blog. They're all hilarious, so thank you. Next may be Corporate Flo, then Proverbial Wisdom maybe. Of course buying shampoo at Target was a great story. That one may be my second. I just want my shot to win a prize.

Oh, I also want to add the interview with Ethan to my list. I forgot about that one. I always enjoy reading all of them, which makes it tough to decide.

This was a hard decision...

1. Attack of the killer air quotes
