The Best Time of the Year

There have been a lot of things going on in my neck of the woods - some good, some not-so-good. I have decided to focus on the good.

I had a spectacular weekend with my two favorite guys - Moose and Shorty. On Saturday, we got up and had breakfast at one of our favorite coffee shops. From there, we drove to Amarillo so that we could make our annual visit to the Salvation Army Angel Tree at the mall. Moose and I had a terrific time shopping while Grampits stress-tested the benches outside the stores. One pair of pants, one shirt, one jacket, one hat, two mittens, two shoes that light up when you walk and one scale model aircraft carrier (with aircraft) and we were done. We delivered said items back to the real angels who volunteer their time and energy to make this tradition of ours work and went on our way.

We went to visit Santa and Moose got to tell Santa what he would like for Christmas. His list was VERY short (only two items) and Santa seemed optimistic that he would be able to fulfill the little man's wishes.

We then went to the Hickory Farms store where I discovered that Moose has never - NEVER- had their smoked cheddar. We immediately rectified that and bought some to bring home.

Then, we went to the movie theater to see "Bolt". If you get the chance to see this movie, shell out the extra dinero to watch it in 3D. It was awesome!!! I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to see a movie with the kids that they don't have to explain.

Dinner at Furr's where everyone gets exactly what they want and no one has to be yelled at to finish their dinner and we came home just in time for bed and a good night's sleep.

Sounds like a wonderful day out! I've heard excellent things about Bolt from everyone who's seen it.

A perfect day! I must take ZBoy to see Bolt.

I totally loved Bolt - more than the kiddo, I think.

I'm glad you're going back on the meds. I hope they make you the you you want to be.
