Lalia in 'A Very Belly Christmas'"Holidays are comin', holidays are comin', holidays are comin', holidays are comin'," Lalia chanted continually, beyond excited. Jane, holding a half-full glass of white wine lazily against her thigh looked up from her seat on the sofa with a smile, watching as Lalia danced across the living room to the wreathed mantel, fists clenched in giddy anticipation.
