All I Want for Christmas...


...is a little comment from YOU!

Now, if you are one of my regular commenters, I am totally cool with ya'll. I love you, in fact.

But I started this blog way back to keep my family and friends up to date with what I am doing and I sometimes wonder if my Mom's blog friends (and yes, my blog friends) are the only folks reading this here thang.

So for Christmas, I am asking YOU to leave me a comment and tell me that you have stopped by, that I am not shouting out to the void on a weekly basis (basis... basis... basis...).

Its easy, even if you don't have a blogger profile or gmail account. You just click the amount of comments down there at the bottom of this post, check off "Name/Url" and just leave a comment and type in your name!

It would make me feel as warm as a hot cocoa this holiday season.

How 'bout it?

In exchange, I will leave you with some Christmas pics of my kids...

Fair enough?


Luka's first go at the Hanukkah candles.


I love finding gifties under the tree.

He put these on himself.


Is it just me, or are there a lot more pics of Luka than anyone else?


Here is Ethan! Sorta.

Happy Holidays, Everyone. And may your New Year be blessed
with peace and health and happiness.

Now go leave me a comment, wouldja?

I am a reader, and occasional commenter... I honestly don't remember how I found your blog. But I like the stories of your children, your beautiful photography and your link to theatre!

And if one son is better at posing for photos than the others, that is hardly your fault! Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays, Karen (and family)!
I read your blogs every time you post a new one as it's linked to MY blog (www.singerofthestars.blogspot.com).

I know how you feel about the void! HA!

Oooooh! I am loving all the comment-y goodness! Keep it coming! I am especially looking for some of my long lost, far flung friends!

I hope everyone's Christmas (those who celebrate) was peaceful and warm!

Hi Karen,
I read your blog at least a couple times a week...Just the other day I was showing it to Victoria--she remembers you and Noah from the Akron Moms meetup group. Happy New Year!

Happy Holidays to the Shamalama family! I found your blog through some giveaway you were running - I remembered that you had twins and were living in San Diego - that was enough to peak my interest and return! I'm sure glad I have. :)

Hey I am reading the blog from Noah's room . . . just wanted to be part of the fun.

Jill Wetzel Stirling said...

Well, I read it regularly because I love feeling like I'm caught up with what is going on in your world. Even if you have no idea what's up with us...

Shama-Lama Mama said...

Ooooh! I am loving it! 17 comments! Keep em' coming! I am really excited to see that some folks DO stop by on a regular basis and not just when I send mass emails begging folks to visit.

I appreciate you all very much.

(((((MMMmwwwaaaahhhhh!!!)))))

Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful family! Sorry I'm a little late on this. I ran into your blog somehow and I just love it!

suz said...

I know I'm lousy at commenting but have checked your blog on a weekly basis. Of course, I know you would like to hear from me more, in the way of my own blog. Knowing me, I fear I'd start the darn thing and not keep up with it. I applaud you for your wonderful site! Happy Holidays! Love ya dearly!

I always read your blog (though sometimes I read it late, like today). I LOVE your blog even if I rarely comment.

Merry Christmas!

maria said...

Even though I have never commented, I check your blog almost daily. I love it when you post pictures, they are always so fabulous. I was an avid reader of BOSC where I enjoyed your Mom's Crow tales. She spoke of your family often - so here I am. I also have three children, so I can relate to many of your topics. Happy Holidays!

JeSais said...

Merry Christmas from Twinsburg, OH .....or Sanibel Island, FL....or the space between.

I normally read the blog from work to make sure you are raising my nephews correctly.

I have discovered that Gus and I have similar views on this issue and will be using him as my surrogate.

Christian said...

Hi there,
I read your blog, after following a link from another mama who must be a mutual friend (WannaBeHippie). I always enjoy your posts and photos. Keep up the good work!

Jason said...

Love the blog. Check it frequently. Can't believe we don't see you more (especially as we live in the SAME CITY!!!)

Pam Papa said...

Here's a post from me, better late than never...right? Miss you guys so much. Happy New Year!! Pam

Marilyn in Ohio said...

Hello Shama-lama Mama-
I am Jason's aunt and I love your pictures of Fox. I found your blog through your mother's blog when I noticed that she had Flamboba listed. There can only be one Flamboba! I found your mom's blog thru Tootie's on Sanibel. Don't remember how I found her's.
I enjoy your writing and your photos are wonderful!

Good Afternoon!!! shamalamamama.blogspot.com is one of the most outstanding resourceful websites of its kind. I take advantage of reading it every day. Keep it that way.

The author of shamalamamama.blogspot.com has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: No one knows the origins of their metal coat hangers. Thanks for the info.
