Today was spent working. Weekends used to be for sitting around and goofing off - not now - now when you are Santa. I spent 2 hours at Wal-Mart - washed 4 loads of clothes - 2 dishwashers full of dishes - installed a new door bell - built a shelf to handle my rapidly expanding collection of work related stuff - and fixed the shower handle that was turning around and around. Finally got to sit down around 8PM.

I bought a "game chair" yesterday, thinking it will be good for sitting in the corner typing out stuff like this and also good for playing the Wii (that is still hidden until Christmas). Alex the dog instantly took it over as her own.
Here are some pictures of the Christmas decorations - taken a couple of weeks ago. Too wet to stand out in the yard and take pictures these days.
