Scenes from Twelfth Night

The Three Kings finally arrive at the crib....bringing gold, frankincense and myrrh. The Child and The Neighbor sharing a holiday moment.Chimichangas. Told you they were bigger than your head.
Searching for the charm. Look who found it!*Once the charm is found, it's a lot easier to dig into your cake.The Neighbor enjoyed hers. Until she couldn't eat any more, what with the whole "bigger than her head" chimichanga that she'd gamely worked on earlier.
The Dog did not understand why he couldn't have chimichangas or cake. Isn't he part of the family, too? He paid his queen homage, but probably just because he thought maybe then he'd get a treat.The paperwhites lasted through all the 12 days of Christmas.

*I was really only queen by proxy. As the evening wore on The Spouse wasn't feeling well, though he was gamely entering in to the festivities. After cake was served he beckoned me over with a "come here, honey", gave me a kiss and popped the charm in my mouth. Yes, he'd found it, but he knew he wasn't up to reigning, with all that it required. So I ruled in his stead. Please don't tell The Child.

I think The Dog deserved both chimmiwotsit and the charm. I'm sure he would have made a wise king for the evening. He has a noble air about him.

something to add to the tradition, if you like. over here, the youngest person present at the Galette des rois cake cutting goes under the table and calls out who gets each piece as they are cut...

What's the line from Meet the Fockers, with Dustin Hoffman and the chimichangas? 'Cause I keep hearing him say that word now.

They were superfantastic, Sling.

He is a very noble dog.

I like that idea, Nicole. We'll definately do it next year.

The line I kept thinking was Halie Duff's from "Napolean Dynamite": "Who wants to eat chimineechangas all next year? Not me."

The chimis look delish! Especially with lettuce and tomato. And the cake looks delish. And I love the nayb's glasses! So unique!
