it's very healthy to be a pet owner. did you know that when talking to a cat your blood pressure and heart rate are even lower than when talking to a human?

in an effort to enjoy it as much as possible, we came up with our 25 days of christmas board. [don't look too closely, we're a little behind]. we have lots of fun christmas traditions, from cutting down the tree together to our christmas morning walk [justin proposed to me on christmas morning - i know - aww]. another favorite tradition is our christmas eve get-together with my family. gram and gramps come over. we have our 'christmas eve dinner' - hamburgers [or veggie burgers!], latkes, and homemade milkshakes. we go to our church candlelit christmas eve service, which i love. then we come home and open gifts from each other. [we now draw names due to the ever expanding family].
it is a night full of goodness, laughter and pure joy.
i so love my family!

[referred by some as lol].
I had a funny dream about you. Our whole family was skiing and you decided to wear shorts (for some odd reason). There were three different ski jumps you could go off, 2 with snow and one with cement. You decided to do the one with cement. You fell when you landed and scraped your butt on the cement pretty badly. We had to call the ski patrol and they bandaged your scraped and bleeding bumJ

when we moved back to n.y. we started the tradition of going to a tree farm to cut down our tree, and it's simply wonderful. we have a great time together wandering through the snow, looking for the 'perfect' tree.
