Maybe you think this is going to be a spirit-filled post larded with warm feelings about being together with friends and family in the holiday season.
Maybe you saw on Facebook that we deferred the celebration of Christmas by a week plus because our collective schedules didn't line up until the new year, and you think I am about to wax on about how the 25th is an arbitrary day to celebrate, and how we defied convention and harvested the blessings of a less-stressed day.
Maybe I have lulled you into the mindset that I am about to talk about perfect love or the wonder of thirty married Christmases or memories of Christmases with our complete family.
You certainly don't think I'm comparing what I got to what you got . . . but actually I am . . . and I haven't even got it yet.

Since they haven't completed the full gallery yet, you still have time to whip your children into shape so that you have a chance to get an even better gift than I am going to have. Let me know when you are ready to concede.
I will post the full six lego portraits when they are done.
