WHALE OF A TIME
So, what can you do when rain sabotages all your plans for Christmas tree hunting? Take your kids to the movies, of course! We went to the early showing of Finding Nemo, which was excellent, and although it was a little on the long side for Karin, she made it through without getting too restless and they both loved it. Karin pronounced it good and scary and Martin loved the part about speaking whale. On the way out of the parking lot, our brakes squealed long and low because it was wet and Martin said, "Mom! The car is speaking whale!!" :)

Martin's tooth came out today, leaving a gaping hole with the new tooth coming up behind. It doesn't freak me out nearly as much now though, thank goodness. Can't believe I have to go through this with 39 more teeth! eek

We're going to try and get our tree in the morning, by being at the nursery when it opens at 10 a.m. (assuming no rain). Anders is taking the kids to a work party for Tetra Pak kids at 12:15 and my first concert is at 1:15 and I won't be home until 4 p.m. at the earliest, by which time it is already dark, so if it's raining in the a.m., we'll have to wait until next weekend to get our tree. Keep your thumbs held and fingers crossed!

2 more packages arrived today, which means we now have a 3-foot high brown cardboard box pyramid of loot! That's as high as R2-D2.

What a geek statement that was! hahaha!

I need to get started on the AWC website, but have no motivation. what. so. ever.

Well, good luck tomorrow. It snowed here all day today, putting down about 2 inches, and Anders and I even managed a snowball fight on our way to the krog tonight, much to the horror of some early 20s types. Why is it that kids always seem so appalled when old farts play?

cuz you're treading on their territory, man! LOL Don't you know young'uns have a monopoly when it comes to good times? And they're also immortal, by the way. And always right.
