BTW - he obviously wasn't asking God to give daddy a swift installation of the PS3 on his High-Def TV. Scott's been cursing off and on all night from upstairs because the system works, but despite an HDMI cable connection it doesn't seem to want to default to that. :)
Finally, he is in bed, snuggled with Barqs. My Mom is on the formal living room couch. I'm on the living room couch (and site of Christmas in the morning), snuggled with Pepper. I have checked and there are two little boys dreaming quietly in their beds.
Time to drift off to sleep (thank you, Sir Ambien). WAIT! Gotta make sure I have some scissors, various screwdrivers, various battaries, tape and other 'rescue' materials for the morning. Trash bags, too!!!!
Good night...and, since it is 1:00 am officially:
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE HOWARDS
