the holiday popcorn tin is essential. I think this might be the year to introduce it as a tradition. And YAY for no car problems...that's new.

oh, Bahama Bucks! we used to have 2 close by and now have none...where's the closest one?

also, be brave for enduring car trips with small children. it's loud and there is no shame in signing Old MacDonald continuously for 3 hours if it helps tone down the shrieking.

Congrats on the job! I feel you on the meltdown, mine are for different reasons, but I've had about one a day lately. I think we need to hang out more often, so we can commiserate together, ha :)

Oh wait, you're in Utah and I'm in Vegas...dang it. Well, how about January sometime??
