A brief update on the snowfall from yesterday's post:
Yeah...I think that was the extent of our white Christmas. Frosty - may he rest in peace.
I was bummed out that President Obama's speech preempted the Charlie Brown Christmas special. Oh, I know I could have rented it, but it's just not the same. I remember looking forward to watching it every year growing up, and while I can't bring you the show in its entirety, here's the true meaning of Christmas as told by everyone's favorite blanket toting Peanuts character, Linus:
I'll be doing some Christmas shopping this week. This year I intend to do much more praying and a lot less stressing about the perfect gift for those on my list. Because as Linus eluded to, we've already been offered the best gift of all. If we've accepted the gift, that's certainly cause for rejoicing this Christmas.
And speaking of gifts, have you taken the Ten Dollar Challenge yet? (And yes, I'm going to shamelessly promote this all month long - just saying.)
