They are predicting 1-3 inches of snow for Christmas. and cold. Although as long as nothing starts falling too soon, we should be able to get everything to moms without too much worry of drenched presents. Currently, Emily is asleep (YIPEE! Maybe she wont be a grouch while we travel) and I'm working on packing/cleaning, so this will be short.
I dont remember ever wanting too many specific things for Christmas, but one year (1983?) I wanted a cabbage patch, a really cool one that held a crayon (remember the days when you could more easily find a doll that didnt do anything than one that did?) Of course since it was my present, I didn't go to all the stores, but that was the year that Cabbage Patch dolls were "THE" toy of the year. And somehow, come Christmas morning, there was a red headed cabbage patch named LouAnn underneath the Christmas and she held a crayon. And guess what? Emily still plays with that doll, so nearly 30 years later it is still loved, maybe it was worth the hassle (but mom would have to be the judge on that!)
I'll try to post tomorrow, but instead of remembering I'll be making memories, so if I don't Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
