What Christmas is All About

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

I'll tell you what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown:

That's what Christmas is all about.

Puppies, kitties, babies, love, and family (not necessarily in that order).

. . . and puppy smiles.

We got to see a significant amount of family this weekend. That was pretty cool. However, we now need a vacation from our holiday experience.

I miss bein' a kid around Christmas . . . (and I miss the serious vacation full of eating and sleeping and watching TV and doing nothing).

Oh! We have new cell phones now. We also have new cell phone numbers. Apparently, if you have a contract with one company and if you switch to a new company and do pay-as-you-go, you can't keep the same number. We weren't really expecting that. So . . . if you want those new cell numbers, get in touch with us. Our house phone number is the same, though (and will be the same for a long, long, long time).

We decided to go to Cingular and get Go Phones with as little as we use the things. Plus, the reception on these things can only be described as INSANELY better than Verizon. Thank God for contracts ending (and now, not having a contract at all).

Other than that . . . we've just been soakin' in the holiday season, and I've been tryin' to rip through book 5 of Harry Potter. It's such a sad book . . .

Speakin' of sad: Willi and I had received United 93 from Netflix about a week ago, and we haven't been able to bring ourselves to watch it. I think we're just going to send it back without watching it. I don't think we can handle it . . . especially not around the holidays . . .

Christmas Lights

I had made mention before that my neighbors' house is just crazy with decorations for Christmas. I also mentioned that I might get some photos of it. Well, last night, I did. Check this out:

This is the front—the view we can see from our living room.

This is an angled, side view of the house plus garage. Believe it or not, there are houses on both sides of this house, but you can't see them due to the illumination (and the darkness).

This is our next door neighbors' house. They're the nice people that are always doing nice things for us.

Here's the view from our next door neighbors' house towards our house.

Aaaaand . . . that's our house. We went all out.

Angled view of our house . . .

And there it is, folks.

We're workin' this weekend, so we hope everyone else is having some fun for us.
