no mercy

Nothing says Christmas like a brightly lighted tree. The holy nativity scene. Stockings hung by the chimney with care. The smell of evergreen. A cold glass of egg nog. Home cooked meals. A crackling fire. Joyous carols.

Friends.

Family from afar.

Staying up late and playing games that were received from Santa.

Making your young niece and nephew cry when you take all of their property, all of their money and crush them in a game of Monopoly.


And to think, that man is the father of my children.

  2. We have that same story in our family. When my sister and I were young, my dad did the same thing to us. Absolutely no mercy! It is still a family joke to this day.

    Thanks for your great blog material. I enjoy your writing.

    Smooches all around from me :)
    ~~Happy New Year!

  4. Your nephew and niece are great actors in those photos, or your Charlie is truly brutal! My husband would be the same way! Guess no man likes to lose at anything--even if it means crushing the spirit of a young child!
