Santa’s Getting Ready

As Santa Claus is warming up his sleigh, Leigh and I are finishing up on the last minute Christmas touches.  After our last meeting with Santa, I think that he knows that the girls have been very good this year both at school and at home. We are looking forward to a quiet Christmas day at home with the girls this year.  After such a hectic Thanksgiving, it will be nice to have a quiet holiday.  We will be spending Christmas Eve with Leigh’s family, as we do each year.…

T’was the weekend before Christmas

Well here it is the weekend before Christmas. The girls are at church tonight, practicing for the epiphany pageant. Leigh is up at Smithfield Commons finishing up any last-minute shopping. The girls are so excited for the holiday coming up. Jessica can barely contain herself. Our holiday schedule is pretty full we will be making the rounds to all the relatives houses, but Christmas Day is spent here. This is one tradition that my father passed down to me.

Disney Dreaming

Every year at this time I start getting the itch.  I know that the temperatures are going to be dropping and I know that a ton of that white garbage is on the way.  So I start to think about warmer climates.  I start gearing towards our February vacation. I am always asked, “Where are you going to go this year Mark?” and the answer is always the same.  You see, I have two young daughters that have been brought up on (brainwashed) by Disney.  They have had movies, merchandise,…

Alicia – Summer Fun

Alicia is our three year-old Black Lab mix. She is the sweetest thing that you would ever want to meet.  Very smart and always there to cheer you up when you’ve had a bad day. Alicia also has some quirks about her.  She is a Black Lab, but terrified of water, except for the lawn sprinkler.  She will spend hours chasing the water back and forth in the backyard until she is soaked to the bone.  If the lawn is being watered, she will whine at the back door until…
