Well, when Lauren sends holiday cards, she doesn’t fool around. I got not 1, not 2 but 5 cards in the mail today. I must say, I feel very loved at the moment and I’m sure that was her intention. I love you hun!

I also got a bit of Christmas shopping done today. My brother and I made our way to the extremely over crowded mall to look for gifts for my parents. My Dad had expressly told us not to get him something but to find something nice for our mother… well, they’re both getting something. We found a few nice things and spent way more than we planned to so I hope they like them. I also was looking for a “little something” to finish off my gift buying for Lauren. I have her main present but I wanted a little mini-present or two to go along with it. Unfortunately I didn’t find anything to my liking so I’ll have to go back after Christmas.

Tomorrow I’m going to mix a CD or two and drink some eggnog. I’ll probably wrap presents at some point too. Then on Christmas we’re just staying around here, having a nice day and dinner together and then going across town later at night to have dessert and coffee with my uncle. The “Perry family Christmas” will actually be happening the following Saturday at my aunt Lisa’s house. So, it should be a fun week.

I hope everyone is having a great vacation, getting some well needed down-time and getting to spend a little holiday cheer with loved ones. May good fortunes and well wishes be with all of you.
