Good intentions crumble... just like Christmas cookies

We decided to do something Christmasy with the kids last night.  The boys always get excited about seeing Christmas lights.  So we decided to drive to a little village nearby that we'd heard was all lit up.  We drove for a bit, and walked for a bit.  We heard "I'm bored," and they started acting up, and then two time-outs and a spilled hot chocolate later, Atticus says in the car, "Raise your hand if this was the worst day ever."

I felt like crying; and thankfully, later, we had a good laugh about it.

  1. Atticus sounds like me at that age (and several other ages, too).

    I remember taking you, Kathleen and Dierdre to Niagara Falls one December evening to see the amazing lights, which they more-or-less cancelled that year. Also, I had intense intestinal... "issues" that I was trying to keep secret.

    You're all still talking to me, so... Grace Lives!!!
