    Wow, it’s December 20 already!  Christmas is nearly here. Thankfully, Eleanora’s birthday party finally happened, and while I’m excited to share photos of it with you, that post will have to wait until after the holidays. In the post-party crunch of rearranging our house back to normal, cleaning up, writing birthday thank you notes, sending out Christmas cards, and packing for our trip to Kentucky… well, I just ran out of time. We get on a plane to Lexington early tomorrow, and I’ll be taking a break from the blog until we get back.

    For now, the Duffys wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    And as a bonus Christmas gift to you and all the other Michael Buble fans out there, Hubba Bubba’s Michael Buble Christmas Special will air again tomorrow night – WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21 at 9:00 pm on NBC. If you missed it the first time, be sure to catch the encore airing!

    Until 2012,

    P.S. I have a double chin in that photo because I was clicking my tongue to get Eleanora to look up and smile. Just so we’re clear.

    I’m surprised none of you has filed a missing persons report on me. But I have good reasons for being M.I.A. from the blog. Besides the fact that it is ALMOST CHRISTMAS (!!!), I was oh-so-busy last week preparing for Eleanora’s first birthday party on Sunday.

    Blog reader Mary emailed me yesterday asking about my Christmas playlist. I l-o-v-e to geek out by making playlists for any occasion I can think of (Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, having friends over for pizza, anything). And when it comes to Christmas, I have a few playlists, organized by mood. (See? I wasn’t kidding about the geeking out.) These are some of my favorite highlights. And since I don’t want to post repeats — that would be hacky — here’s a link to the playlist I posted last year, which is still very much in the rotation this year.
