Hellthy holidays everyone

Cheers to government mandated health insurance and no idea how to pay for it!

I won't say much about this lovely Christmas present from the United States Congress but here was my favorite comment (I wish it was my own) from this article:
Let me get this straight. Obama’s health care plan will be written by a committee whose Chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress which hasn’t read it, signed by a President who smokes, funded by a Treasury Chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a country that is nearly broke. Democrats in action. I’m impressed.

Merry Christmas

So I guess we were bad this year. Instead of just getting a lump of coal (that we didn't have to pay for,) we get to choose between spending a lot of money to fix our thirty year old broken garage door, or even more money for a new one. Oh, and we have had two break-ins in our complex in the last two weeks- and a freaking wild boar(what the??!!) wandering around three houses up from us today; so before we even decided about which of the bad options we would like to do, we had to spend 150.00 JUST to get it down so that we could leave our house secure for two weeks while we go to Utah. HO HO HO!

Hopefully you have all been on better behavior, or at least will just get something crappy for Christmas that doesn't cost you any money! Adios and Merry Christmas to all my peeps in Loma Linda, and I can't wait to see all of you and the snow and the cold in Utah! Adam has two more finals and then we are out of here. Let the festivities begin-wahoo!-can't wait for things like this:

Reasons why I should adopt some older children:

They can be helpful and adorable...and you already know what you are getting!

...Sometimes they turn out to be professional football players AND terrific big brothers! btw, this story/movie was phenomenal.

And they entertain your younger children without being asked because all they are really doing is entertaining themselves.

We had a blast over Thanksgiving. We went down to Phoenix to my aunt Wendy's house. Perfect group, perfect size, perfect food, perfect relaxation and perfect company. We swam, played a new game that the boys made out of PVC pipe and golf balls, went boating, running, watched football, watched movies about football and generally enjoyed the company of people we really, really like-which in my mind, is precisely what Thanksgiving is about. It's my favorite holiday by a long shot.
