My little sister Molly and me on Christmas Eve

What do the following things have in common?

  • 6 Scouts lost on a trail (who were supposed to be on a sidewalk)
  • 1 new game's box chewed up by Rocky
  • 1 kitchen faucet on the blink
  • 1 forgotten wallet
  • 1 cancelled ski day
  • 3 passport applications delayed due to clerk's mathematical error
  • 1 surprise expansion opportunity for business
  • 1 traffic jam
  • 1 kitchen piled high with dirty dishes
  • 1 huge pile of dog puke
  • 1 dead cell phone and
  • a decapitated pigeon (probably by a possum) discovered by a distraught 10 year old owner
Any guesses?

These are all things that we've experienced in the past 30 hours (+/-)!

What a day...
It's about time to start a New Year, wouldn't you say?

It's amazing to compare 2010 with last year's Christmas Eve.  In December 2009, my Grandma was recovering from a broken neck, dislocated pelvis and other injuries after a fall down a flight of stairs at home.  Look at her now!  Goes to show the power of prayer!

Wow, that's quite a list.
Handsome boys and I love the red snowflake sweater.

Aileen the quiz! Sounds exactly like an Adams' list of events. Can't wait to see you in a few weeks. Planning to come to Bham for Bryan's ordination on Jan 16. xoxo
