Behold: An annual holiday update

Fear not! For I bring you good tidings of great joy that shall be for… some of you. Anyone who knows us/has decided they like online Jess, and virtually stalks my shenanigans (I can’t blame you. I’m a hoot). Here it is. An annual update on the state of affairs at Casa de Curls. We’ve had quite a year, so I’ll try and sum it up for you before the baby wakes up (we had one of those!).

Stephen (AKA The Hippie, for those of you who stalk me online): He managed to take a nap once, and it was the highlight of his year.

Told you he got a nap.

Jess: I have a new job, and I was pregnant this year! I am not anymore, and all of us are much happier now, former fetus included (more on her in a bit).

See that? She was inside me for nearly 10 months. 10.

Eli: He is in the 5 year old classroom at Powersports, and thinks that Mrs. Mimi hung the moon. Her word is law, and to be obeyed at all times. No, we haven’t milked that at home. Why do you ask?

The coolest of the cool. That’s our Eli.

Zelda: She has been outside of my uterus for a whole month now, and is still bumfuzzled at this whole ‘I am one person and mom is another’ thing. She like sleeping though, so we’ll just let her get there when she gets there.

She is little! She is fierce! She looks great in a tutu!

Sheila: She accidentally became a minor internet sensation when I began posting daily updates from her point of view this August. I just caught her licking her crotch though, so at least the fame hasn’t gone to her head.

Hai frans! I am here too, and I have not chased a single chicken in over a week.

The Everyone: We moved! … two streets over. But still! Within the span of 3 days, 3 major things happened: I met the person who would become my boss, I found out I was pregnant, and Stephen’s dad survived a major heart attack. Less than a month after that, a job offer was in my inbox, and the need to find a new place to live (where I could work while staying home with our new tiny) was very apparent. I’m still teaching the dancing, but now I am also the in-house copywriter for an online tutoring company. Like I said… it’s been a doozy, but it’s been good. We hope that you are all well, and accept this online update in lieu of a card (I have a tiny human who came out of my body a month ago. If anything you should all be impressed at me for getting it together enough to write a blog post).

Merry Everything, and I hope the holiday treats you well.
