Random thoughts on a cold December morning:
1. I went in to wake Zack up this morning and Buddy was fast asleep on his bed. I wanted to capture that picture in my heart forever.
2. Please tell me you are watching the Hallmark movie marathon, too. If you are please list your favorites (or just the plot) in the comments. I don’t want to miss any of the good ones. A Royal Christmas is one of my favorites.
3. I just found the perfect 20-foot garland at Lowe’s for only $7.00 and change. It was marked half-price. Hello front door.
4. We have an annual tradition in our hometown called The Parade of Lights. The parade route is about a mile long and it’s full of floats with lights. My kids are in it this year.
I’ll be on the sidelines with hot chocolate. 🙂
