Merry Christmas my friends...

My children are beside themselves.  The turkey is roasted, showers done, dressed for church and we are heading out into the night for our annual Christmas Eve festivities and my children are so excited that they cannot stand it.  I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and rediscover the joy and excitement that my children have.  Love to you all.

5 more days

My children are bouncing off the walls.   Does anyone remember that excitement before Christmas that we all once had?  Counting down the days, waiting anxiously to see if Santa brought the items on the list.  Well that is where we are.  No more school and the days cannot go by fast enough.  At 9 and 6 this could be the last year that Santa is real and I am trying to milk it for all that it is worth.  I must say though that if anyone is feeling a little "grinchy" you must only speak to a child and get their take on the next few days and it will help you to regain the Christmas spirit.  We are off to the mall, and then hoping to bake cookies with friends.  Smile everyone, 5 more days and no I am not done but I will be.  I have to be.  Santa is coming!

Finally made it to Hogwarts...

As most of you know I have had a busy fall and am just now trying to get back in to the swing of things.  If you have ever read anything that I have written you must know what a major Harry Potter fan I am.  Now I have not yet seen the movie but we finally made it to Universal this past weekend.  Yep, that's right people, I have seen Hogwarts and loved every minute of it.  The children loved it and I was like a kid in a candy store (Honeydukes actually).  The rides were awesome and the castle itself was so well done that I must go back just to see everything I missed.  If you have the opportunity, well you know what to do.
