Thanks for the Cookies, Mom

December 14, 2009 at 6:33 am (To Do) (, )

Grandma came over yesterday to make sure we had a good stash of cookies for Santa.  ‘Cos you never know how hungry he’ll be or what kind he will like.

Choices include the following:

  • Snickerdoodle
  • Mint chocolate chip
  • Butterscotch and chocolate chip
  • Oatmeal with orange flavored craisins

What do you leave out for Santa?

Christmas Concert

December 11, 2009 at 6:48 am (To Do) (, )

We only have one concert to go this year, since the boys are now at the same school.

Here’s the classics, regardless of how many you go to:

  • Little girls in poofy dresses and tights
  • Little boys in ties
  • The one loud kid
  • The one kid that says “hi” to the sibling in the other class (that was mine this year)
  • Squeaky voices
  • Enjoying the moment

What’s your favorite Christmas Concert moment?

The Best Snowstorm Effects

December 10, 2009 at 6:11 am (To Do) (, )

Wisconsin got between 0-17 inches of snow, depending on where you are in the state.  My yard was close 15 inches.

Here’s the good parts:

  • Hot chocolate with marshmallows
  • Mom’s version includes vanilla vodka or peppermint schnapps
  • Happy kids after building their snow fort
  • Husbands who plow the drive way
  • Not actually having to go out and do anything about the snow

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
