A Christmas surprise

We sure hope Mum doesn't see this dreadful photo-from-slide (on GG's site). If ratted out by a sister or three (this means you), we promise that glamorous Christmas-pix-of-past will appear soon. The uncharacteristically bizarre outfit & coiffure are what happens when moving house two or three days before Christmas (the tree is up, that's the important thing!). We never saw those plaid pants before or after. She was on the spot & is smiling like she's ready to go out for the evening. Dad looks goofy (he always looks goofy in photos; he's usually the photog). There is a fondness for the photo because the surprise was a new neighbor's appearance as "Santa"...

GG's editor was obviously shy but captivated & Mum made sure that her daughter's hair was quickly bow-tied. We think the lesson of the photo is being absolutely delighted when surprised by well-intentioned new neighbors when you have a little girl, one on the way, & have just moved hundreds of miles away from family two days before Christmas & are wearing the most dreadful plaid pants. Good manners.
