A couple weekends ago, at bedtime, bad decision on my part, I made the kids get all spiffied up so I could take their picture for the Christmas card. Well it didn't work out as planned. Kasey was very uncooperative. And the other kids smiled funny or made funny faces, the lighting was bad, the whole thing didn't work out. So after taking 20 pictures I gave up, and decided we would not be sending out photo cards this year. Oh well. This whole month is so filled with fun stuff, and I'm really looking forward to it. Programs, band and choir concerts. Christmas stroll this weekend (ladies night out, hooray!), and fun in AZ. We got our house all adorned with the Christmas trims. And only broke to ornaments in the process. Kasey is feeling awfully tempted to touch the presents, but she's been good not too yet. My fear is one morning I will awake to the sound of paper ripping and little giggling. This morning I awoke to Fake snoring and a nude girl laying in the hallway. So, no telling. I don't know what I was thinking wrapping them all already. I think I just wanted to enjoy Christmas time a little here before we head down to the desert. So I think we are ready for the big holiday. I know the kids are.
