'Tis The Season
Yes, it's that time of year again. Let me tell you, our family LOVES Christmas. Steve is a big kid and was busy putting the finishing touches on our lights this past weekend. We spent all of Saturday morning going from store to store looking for that perfect addition. Steve finally went to Costco in the afternoon and came home with a 4 foot snowman. It's gorgeous!
Yep, there it is in the picture! I'll show a better one later.
We got one last year but it was too small for Stevies liking. He is a perfectionist when it comes to decorating our house outside. Thank god we made the big switch over to LCD lights this year as last year our breakers kept popping. It cost a small fortune, but it will pay off in the end. Our house looks awesome and now I can't wait for snow! This coming weekend will be interesting as we get our indoor decorations out and put up our tree. Why will it be so interesting? Let us not forget Fabulous Fred! Last night alone he chewed all the tassles off of one of my cushions for the couch. So picture a tree, ornaments and presents all just sitting there taunting him, goading him on, testing his puppiness. What's a few Christmas presents with tatters, holes and drool. After all, it's the thought that counts isn't it? And.........eeeeeverybody loves FRED!!!
(Don't fuel the drool, don't fuel the drool!)
Fred hates it when I talk about him!
On a lighter note it was the Woodstock Santa Claus Parade Saturday night. We did not attend (remember Steve went to Costco in search of the perfect tree). But Phill and Brandi took the kids and they were so excited. Cameron was awe struck when one of the firefighters came over to shake his hand. Being three and having just seen the firefighters and their firetruck when they visited his daycare, Brandi said it was like he saw God or something!
On a sadder note, yes, I watched the Detroit verses Dallas game. And no, I'm not talking about it other than "hair pull not horse collar!" That's all I have to say on the matter!
