Just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a happy and festive holiday season for 2011! We've got a bunch of stuff planned between now and Christmas in our house. We'll have a "North Pole Express" train ride, where the kids get hot chocolate and the dude in the red suit comes through and the kids say what they want for Christmas. We're gonna do the Bass Pro Shops Christmas village and maybe find one or two more like that. We just did the Dallas Children's Hospital/Adolphus parade last Saturday. Gonna go visit my wife's grandfather up in Sherman, TX as well maybe over the weekend. I'm sure we'll have some fires in the fireplace, do some shopping, drive around looking at lights, just having a good time enjoying the cold weather after the crazy hot summer we had. We'll be attending a Christmas Eve service, then open a couple of gifts each for the kids before bed on the 24th. Then we'll have some family over on Christmas day, trying to keep the kids out of the gifts until we open them later and have a great time together and a huge roll-me-to-the-couch-please meal. Then, if I know my wife, she'll be heading out on the 26th to get some deals out and about and exchanging gifts for the right size, etc. New Years Eve? Not sure what we're doing. Probably going to hang out with some family friends, maybe let all of the kids collapse together on the hide-a-bed couch and ring in the new year with a glass of champagne and a kiss at midnight. That's about it. Nothing to crazy or fancy, but trying to enjoy these days while the kids are young and build some good memories with them.
