Garbage Day

It's beginning to look a lot like a garbage dump
Everywhere you look....

Another day cleaning up after Christmas and tomorrow is Garbage Day- for the first time in 11 days. That meant tonight was the time to run all the trash down to the street and hope there are no hurricane force winds tonight that will spread our remnants across the neighborhood. If I wouldn't look like more of a nut than I already do, I'd be tempted to take a picture of the stack of trash - it's borderline obscene to have that much trash. We did have 15 people open presents here over two days so I guess it is to be expected.

Tonight we streamed some Wii playing over the webcam and got a few viewers. Watching two kids and a chunky dude play Wii is not the same as inviting the world in for a big family get together. I have to keep thinking about the best use of the webcam.

I think the countdown to New Years Day will start here tomorrow night by counting down my three biggest stories of the year - some covered in the blog and some not. Hint: I have had a lot of questions - and I mean A LOT more than I thought I would have - about what happened to one of our most popular Christmas traditions. The story behind that will be #2 in our countdown.
