Happy Holidays Everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, as we did. You can see by this picture that laughter was had by all!
Well, except for Saturday night. Man, the Irish didn't have the game I was hoping for. Oh well, 10 and 2 is still better than 8 and 4 or 7 and 5. We may be BCS bound, or maybe it'll be the Cotton Bowl and we'll have some house guests. We have the house for it!
We had a great few days off. Alex, Meghan, Lorenzo and I spent lots of time together. The kids are really enjoying their playroom and riding bikes in the 70 degree weather. It's great to live in Texas in November. That'll change later this week, though, when the cold front hits. It's supposed to be 20 degrees on Thursday morning. BRRR
We are attacking our Christmas shopping as quickly as possible. We got a few things finished this weekend, but still have more than half of our shopping to finish. Then there's the wrapping and Christmas cards to send. It seems this time of year we don't slow down, but I really love it! It is my favorite time of year for sure.
The kids helped me decorate the tree on Saturday and we are working on our exterior decorating strategy. Lorenzo is really helping with the plans and I am sure we'll get the new house looking festive really soon.
I hope you are all taking the time to enjoy the holidays. Remember to slow down and just enjoy the sparkling lights on a tree.
