Love that picture, buglover!
I have disturbing toy news... I went to Walmart yesterday with my Little Sister looking for stocking stuffers. Pick-up sticks now come with a little ball on the end instead of a point. For any of you old enough to remember these as a staple of indoor recess time at school you will understand how shocking this is! You can't press down on a tip to get it to spring free from the pile, and you can't use the tip of one to flip another one away. What is this world coming to? Then this morning I went to open my Lego advent calendar and it was Santa in a thong with a shower brush to go with the shower stall I built yesterday. The fold-out scene is of a living room with train tracks on the floor, and so far I've built a snowman, drum set, cat and dog, boy skateboarding with a sword (?!), other family members, etc. Where does naked, showering Santa fit into this scenario?
