Tomorrow, I am going to a Razorback basketball game with my dad. I can't wait for that! Go Hogs!

Kendall's and Clayton's cousins from NYC are here for a couple of days. It is pandemonium. The kids and I are heading to North Arkansas tomorrow to see the grandparents (my parents). I hope to post some good pics soon.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying Christmas.

I am still not ready for Christmas when I look around at the house and feel paralyzed by my procrastinating. Help.

After the kids were up and ready we headed out to our Wegman's grocery store to have breakfast with Santa. Originally, it was to be a family affair with my husband coming along. Pete dropped the bomb on me two days prior by informing me that he was going duck and goose hunting. Great. So, I stupidly offered to take Sydney with us to the breakfast (since we had pre-paid). It was a buffet breakfast which meant I was going back and forth to the table to get food that would just sit there. The kids hardly ate anything. What's new? I stuffed my face to make up for what they wasted. Finally, our number was up to go see Santa. It is pretty magical.
After the breakfast, Sydney's mom picked her up and the kids and I went home. Kendall took a nap as soon as she got home. At 3 pm, Kendall went to a birthday party. After that, both kids went to another birthday party. It was quite a busy day.
Sunday, we went to church in the morning and then we went out that afternoon to get our Christmas tree. You can see some pictures here. We started decorating and immediately, the ornaments started breaking. Kendall dropped one, I dropped the lights, etc.
Needless to say, I was very glad when it was time to go to sleep on Sunday night. I think I am still tired.

Rooftops in Amsterdam.
Cannabis seeds for sale. (now that's something you don't see everyday!)
We flew back to State College, via Detroit. I called my mom once we were back on U.S. soil and she told me the news that the Razorbacks had beaten #1 LSU that weekend. I was back home.

And in other topics, has everyone sent out their Christmas/Holiday/Whatever cards? One year, our Hindu friend gave us a card and I thought is summed up what goes through every body's heads this time of year. I thought it was so perfect so I've kept it all these years.
In case you can't read the small print, it says under the paper clothes 'Christmas', 'Hanukkah', and 'New Year'. I personally like to send cards out that say 'Merry Christmas', but my husband likes the ones that say 'Happy Holidays' so we don't offend anyone. So, I'll apologize to those that might be offended ahead of time for saying Merry Christmas when we get closer to the date...

And look out. The weather is looking nasty this weekend. I'm not ready for the snow but I guess it is a necessary evil. Oh well, just 20 more days and the days start getting longer...but I'm not wishing my life away--I promise!
