Not having done a traditional Christmas for quite some years, I found it unnerving to be out "Christmas Shopping" for 11 people today. We are going to have a family celebration while the kids are all here next week. 

I'm very glad we keep the budget per person VERY reasonable - cuts down the amount of shopping time required. We aren't done...but I really think I'm about done, regardless. 

It snowed today! Can you believe it? I come to San Angelo, TX - home of the 90 straight days of 100*+ weather - thrilled to get out of the Misawa Blizzard like conditions - and it gets COLD here and SNOWS...our winter jackets are in Japan. I brought FLIP FLOPS and CAPRI'S. ::snort:: 

This was an exciting discovery today.....check it out....colorful duct tape!  I'm sure it's Old News to YOU. 

I bought a high speed memory card to see if it will take care of the things I dislike about the new camera. I don't know that it has....

This is finals week for the boys and the rest of the family flies in on Dec 9th. 

Choosing Joy!

You're not too far behind us. I have seen the new duct tape, but never bought any. Sorry about the snow, but you'll be okay. Enjoy your time there.

Sis: The way my family feels about me and 'Duck Tape' I have refrained from using it since it came out. :):):):) I can just imagine the post office and/or Fed X etc it I tried to mail overseas or APO with that. :)):):) might be worth a try. :):) Glad you are finding time to just do whatever it is you want to do at any given time. love/prayers - Mom T.
