Nothing like waiting 'til the last minute, huh? I FINALLY got the kids together to get a pic for the Christmas cards. Then, my printer wouldn't print. Forget it, I'll just take the pic to Walgreens. I uploaded the pic & when I went back to get the prints, half of Nick's head was cut off! I got a refund, went back home & uploaded the ORIGINAL, not my cropped, edited version, made the changes & sent it for printing. They won't be done until 8pm?!?!?! Oh well, FINALLY got them & finally got the last of my cards OUT!!!!

Ok, Becca took this shot, it's a pic of the shelf above my table in the dinning room. As I posted it, I notice what looks like "texture" on the wall behind the shelf. I'm guessing it has something to do w/the light from the multiple bulbs in the chandelier but it still looks freaky!!!
Weird, now I don't see the lines. Nevermind!
Waiting. No, not for Santa. Waiting for my parents to arrive. They are coming up from Bolivar, MO to help Steve for a couple of days. This time, they are not staying with us but in the Holiday Inn. The kids are hoping to get to go & swim in the indoor pool!!! They are coming here first 'cause it's too early to check into the hotel. Looks like even Jack's excited.

Took Scott to a baseball card show today so he could pick out his Christmas gifts. I did it by myself last year but he stress of it was too much!!! I think I WAY overpaid for the card I bought last year so I let him come this year & negotiate the price. It worked out GREAT & he was able to complete his set of 1959 cards!!! Woohoo!!!
Oops, got the days backwards. Out of order!!
The city of Hartford decorates its streets for Christmas. This seems sooo old fashioned to me & makes me all warm & fuzzy. I love to drive thru the streets & just admire it all. Reminds me of being a kid when MORE towns did this kind of stuff.
The front gutters needed to be cleaned. Scott borrowed his mom's ladder & got 3 steps up before he freaked out. Nick said he'd do it. Nick got to the top & got it done but was a little freaked by it too. The only thing that got him thru it was the ok to throw the gunk on his dad. Goofy guys!
