You know you're old when . . .

I don't know if you can read the saying on the tissue pack:
"At our age, swimming is dangerous. Lifeguards don't try as hard."
LOLOL Isn't that the truth! I love you, Elf! That tissue cover is adorable! And I love my new name tag! Now I *have* to go to Convention, right? Thanks for brightening my day!

I needed a laugh today! We had promised the kids a quick trip to Salt Lake City to see the lights on Temple Square. Welllll, the weather intervened. We probably could have made it, but Mom would have been stressed, which would have made Dad cranky, and so we decided to be cautious and stay home. My kids are really sad. So are the "grown-ups." {sigh} We'll try to do something really fun here, instead, but it's not quite the same. We're thinking of driving around to see lights here tonite, then a family trip to the movies to see Despereaux. I'm actually hoping there's a LOT of snow, so the kids can see how wise we were to stay home! If you have any great suggestions of stuff to do, let me know!

If the storm we get here tomorrow is as big as Friday's (which I think they are predicting) then you are wise to stay home. ((Hugs)) to you and your kids!

And cute Elf projects too!

Sorry your original plans didn't work out, but if the roads are like they are here - good choice to stay home or close to it.
Love your gifties too. Pretty name badge - check that off the to do list for convention next year ;)
