Hey, everybody! Merry Christmas to you. I hope your Christmas eve weekend is off to a good start. We are in Boone, NC with my family. We have a short visit here before we head home for Christmas on Sunday. My dad is riding back with us to Franklin to spend Christmas with us. We are so excited to have him with us in our home. It has been 6 years since he has been able to come to our house (he wasn't able to travel for years when my mom was sick and still with us). Woo hoo! Cuz is coming to town!
I have had some friends from my past lurking around this blog this year. And I just got an email from one of my favorite teachers ever - my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Surber, this past week. You people need to let me know you are out there!
My sister is frying bacon as I type. Just the smell of bacon frying makes me happy. I mean really happy. Is it wrong to enjoy this bacon while my kids are watching Charlotte's Web?
I am so mad that I missed the "Clash of the Choirs' show on NBC. Yes, I read Beth's blog about it. I even made the mistake of calling them during the last 5 minutes of the final show. She was all out of sorts because she thought I was calling about the show (which I wasn't). She loved the show. Rats! Will they re-run it? Somebody let me know if you hear anything about that.
I did watch Duel a couple of times. Did anybody else watch it? I watched because the host - Mike Greenberg - is one of my favorite sports journalists. I listen to him every morning on talk radio. The game was hard to figure out at first. But I liked it. I don't know if it will last, though. Any thoughts? I love game shows, and it's a life goal of mine to be on the Wheel one day. I am a master of the Wheel. Bring it on, Pat and Vanna.
I hope you all saw my best buddy, Denver, take 3rd place on "The Next Great American Band." I am so proud of him. They did a great job. I would have to see him win, of course. But I am glad he is free of having to be bound to all of the contracts that the winner finds themselves tied to. So he is free to do whatever he feels led to do. Yippee...we are proud of you, Denver!
I will close with some Christmas pics of my kids. I hope your Christmas is filled to overflowing with the love and peace that Jesus came to give us all. Blessings to you!
