I love Christmas.
Except for the crowds.
And rude, frustrated people.
Oh......and traffic, too.
But, really, I love Christmas.
My tree no longer has the ornaments beautifully and evenly spaced.
Instead, my precious ornaments are carefully hung on the top branches
and all others decorate the bottom half of the tree.
Because even an artificial tree needs to be trimmed up with a fake Home Depot saw.
My local grocery store had these super cute gingerbread house kits
marked down to $2.99. Seriously, $2.99.
So we made a "gingerbread man house".
And we got STICKY.
We might possibly have snuck a few pieces of candy.

I know I could never, ever be a pre-K teacher!

Growing up, my sister and I were fortunate
to spend a lot of time with my Nana and Pap and my Mima.
Every Friday night, my sister and I would pack our
overnight bags and head over to Nana and Paps.
My parents got a much needed break and we got to have fun!
My grandparents ordered pizza from Yolanda's.
It was SQUARE, something we never got at home.
Then we would watch "The Dukes of Hazzard", "Falcon Crest", and "Dallas".
(Yeah, in case the clothes in the pictures didn't give it away, I am THAT old.)
For dessert, we got peanut butter ice cream.
A flavor never found in our own freezer.
We usually fell asleep on the floor.
And now my son gets to create these same types of memories.
Every Friday night he packs up his overnight bag and
heads off to my parents...his Mima and Pappy.

I share my booth with my mom and my sister,
