    Storm coming in

    We are in for a nice winter storm tonight and tomorrow. They say that we are supposed to get upwards of 5 inches of snow, with near white out conditions at time. Wind gusts are going to be really high too.

    Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

    Jason, that is what we do too. Every one gets Christmas PJ's to wear to bed Christmas Eve night. I love this tradition in our family.

    How Much Do You Spend on Gifts?

    We usually get one gift that would be considered "big". After that, we might buy a handful of small ones. We try not to focus so much on the present part though.

    Finally - decorated!

    We finally got our tree up this week as well. It was the first time we have been home period. We have been so busy this holiday season. I almost thought we were going to have to have Christmas with no tree.

    Is this the new one with Stallone and Swartzenegger? I don't really have an interest in seeing it, if it is. I don't think that either of them has enough talent to fill a thimble.

    She Will Never Have a Name

    There are a ton of names that end in "a". Try Marianna, Maria, Anna, Helena, Eliza, Julia, Ada, Cora or Greta. There are a lot more, but that's what I came up with off the top of my head.
  7. B Santa and Jesus not white? published an article last week about how the modern world views both Santa and Jesus. Fox news decided they had to respond with this bit of ridiculousness, wherein host Megyn Kelly states: "Santa just is white". She also went on to say that Jesus is as well. It is funny because for...

    Are you sending out Christmas cards?

    We usually pick up our cards at the end of Christmas sales at a really good price. We get the ones that were $10 at Christmas for about $1 afterwards. We need to get ours out this week.

    What's your favorite Christmas food?

    My favorites are the goodies! Cookies, candies and pies are so delicious and I don't normally eat them. I splurge at the holidays though. I do love turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing too!

    Paul Walker crash

    I heard this too and I think it is awful. I am just glad that they caught the kid and he is going to be punished. I was really saddened to hear about the death of Paul Walker, but it saddens me even more that someone would try to capitalize on his death.

    When would you forgive?

    I think forgiveness is important to you, not the person you are forgiving. I can always forgive anything, forgetting and allowing the person back into your life is something different altogether. Just remember that holding all of the pain and anger inside of you only hurts you, not them.

    Miss My Son's Hockey Games

    We go to my nephew's games occasionally. They are a lot of fun. Perhaps you could get together with the parents and do something else. After all, you don't have to give up the friends you made because your son isn't playing anymore.

    Sick Co-Workers

    I have worked at places that were like that, so I know how it is. I do wish that people felt comfortable enough with the security of their jobs that they could and would stay home when they were ill.

    Xbox One

    I think it is silly to buy one right now, because there is very little content out for it. Most of the big titles like Halo, GTA or COD won't be available for the new consoles until 2014. So until then you will be stuck with a very expensive paperweight. I don't have a problem waiting a year or...

    A paycheck...finally!

    It is always a good feeling when you have gone without a paycheck for awhile. Good luck to you with the new job. I hope you are able to dig out sooner rather than later and enjoy a wonderful holiday season.

    Doing things apart

    There is always such a lot of talk about doing things as a family, but do you think that it is equally important to do things alone? I think that taking some time for yourself away from your family can be an important "reset".

    Hunger Games Catching Fire

    I won't see it because I don't like the premise. I mean a world where children have to fight to the death in a game is just too much for me. I have not read the books and I won't watch the movies either.

    Black Friday Shopping

    We stay as far away from the stores as possible on Friday. It is just to crazy. We decided a long time ago that no deal is worth our lives. Besides that, a lot of times the "deals" are better a few weeks later.

    Lemon squares

    Oh my goodness! My wife made these lemon bars today that are out of this world. She says that they were really easy to make too. I am usually not a bog fan of lemon, but these were delicious. It was like a sugar cookie base with lemon filling and a glaze on top.

    Favorite pie for holidays

    Apple pie is the best, hands down. I have never been a big fan of pumpkin though. It is way too mushy for me. I agree with you Polamalu. I could eat a couple slices of pie and some mashed potatoes and gravy and be good to go.
