I LOVE this boy. He makes me crack up everyday. He is sweet and sensitive. Much like me. The sensitive part anyway. He is super smart and can build anything he sets his mind on. When Sam grows up he wants to be an inventor. He is so handsome, umm, even with lunch on his face. Just like his daddy, the handsome part anyway.
Can you guess what we have been doing on this beautiful Sunday afternoon?
That’s right, we are making the outside of our house festive. We weren’t going to put up lights this year. We had decided that with the kids it was too much work and that with the garland and wreath on the door we were finished with outdoor decorating. Well, we woke up this morning and decided that it would be fun to put up a strand or two. Unfortunately, we never learn our lesson and we are now up to our ears in Christmas lights. Thank goodness for the warm weather. We all spent the afternoon outside enjoying the warm sun on our faces and the spirit of Christmas in our hearts. Merry Christmas to all and to all a BRIGHT night.

……..playing in the snow on a really cold day!
Yesterday the high in Col Springs was 5 degrees and the low was -5 degrees. Brrrrr!!!
Looking forward to a warmer weekend. I would say that I am really looking forward to summer but that might make me sound a tad crazy in the hair*.
*Crazy in the hair is Sam’s reference to somebody when he or she gets overloaded. I don’t know who he would be refering to as I never get overwhelmed as a mother of four.
