Happy Birthday, Starshine!

My youngest son turned 8 yesterday. It's a big deal.

I asked him how he was liking his birthday and his response was, "it's great, but I'm a little tired today."

ME: Why are you tired?

STARSHINE: I didn't sleep well last night.

ME: Were you excited about your birthday?

STARSHINE: No, it's just that I went from being 7 to 8 last night so I did a lot of growing last night and it kept me awake.

A Christmas Tradition

We went to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert last night. Wow. What a show.

We've gone four years in a row now and every year the show gets bigger and better. I've been to hundreds of concerts in my life and nothing compares to TSO.

If you get the opportunity to go, do. You won't regret it. It's worth every penny and a great show for the whole family.
Here's a link to some TSO videos.

A Southern Snow

Snow happens in Nashville only once or twice a year and rarely do we get enough to make snowmen and have snowball fights.

Tonight was one of those rare times.

Here is the fruitiliscious snowman created by my kids.

And here is my youngest with his creation.

Maybe it will be a white Christmas after all.

Note to Self

A tile bathroom floor covered in water and Wonka Nerds is slippery and should be avoided.

Note to children...
1. Towels can be used to actually dry things that are wet, like tile bathroom floors.
2. While splashing in the bathtub may be a lot of fun, it is not necessary to splash in order to get yourself clean.
3. Bath time and snack time should be held at two distinctly different times.

That is all.

23 Days and Counting

The Christmas "To Do" list is still 9 feet long. Why do we do this to ourselves every year? Each January I resolve to have a quiet and peacful holiday season the next time of these years it will happen.

Here is a Christmas cake I did last year...I hope it gets you a bit more in the holiday spirit!
