The rush of the holidays.

I tell people we are lucky.  Most of our relatives live in the cities here.. this means no traveling for the holidays.  And now, usually my parents come over Christmas Day.. so we really only have to go 5 minutes to church.  I also don't have too many people to shop for.  So I can avoid the rush of the holidays.  There is an article (former semon) that someone on scrapshare told me about... http://www.mvuc.org/Sermons/working_to_unplug_the_christmas.htm that is supposed to talk about this.  I have not read it yet, but others have and liked the message.

I did not know if the kids were getting anything for Christmas.  Yes, they were generally good (well they are 3 1/2 and 2).. but it did not look like their gift would be here in time.  Well the big family gift will be here now.. and Nick decided to get them something else I KNOW they will like.  So now they will be spoiled for Christmas.  Ah well... like I said.. they are great kids.

To all of those out there, if I don't "see" you before the end of the week, Happy Holidays - Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and Happy New Year!!

C-Ya!
