the facts of christmas

There still has to be a letter to Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even though the youngest person in the house is 16 years old.

"Dear Santa,
Please help yourself to our plethora of treats. They are all most divine and filling. Mrs. Clause might even be jealous of our dessert skillz.
I believe the Hale unit has been 100% good this year so no coal would be necessary.
I hope you travel safe tonight and stay warm. . . Get Brady something RAD! He deserves the best !!
--Melanie, Roxanne, Billy, Rachel and Kyle

There were a lot of children's gifts/toys/movies given around here even though the youngest person in the house is 16 years old.

Dave enjoyed shopping so much this year, there were many presents under the tree for him. (yes, that means from Dave, to Dave)

I am glad that there is a lot of candy and holiday food available to snack on all day long. I am glad no one is truly hungry. I forgot to put the meat in the crockpot and our main dish for dinner this afternoon is not going to happen. We will subsist on Muddy Buddies, Divinity, Sugar Cookies and Eggnog.

I didn't get enough sleep last night. A nap is definitely in order this afternoon.

Forty Five minutes is NOT enough time to visit with our favorite missionary who we haven't seen for 353 days.

Oh no! You forgot your meat in the crock pot? A holiday to remember! Brady looks great. How neat to be able to see him and talk to him.
