It's getting closer by the minute; Christmas Day. We will be leaving for Salt Lake City on Christmas day and will be gone for 11 days.
My family has vowed to spend tomorrow (Saturday) cleaning the house and preparing for our trip to Utah. The last time we went on a long vacation, we returned to a house that looked like it had been ransacked by burglars. Only it wasn't burglars. It was just us. We left it a wreck and unfortunately no little elves showed up to clean it while we were away. I figure, if after our time away, I have to return to the unenviable task of taking down the Christmas tree and putting away the decorations, I may as well do it in a clean house.
On Sunday evening, I have two church services, which will really be mini-concerts. I'm just about ready to go. I'm listening to the programs print as I write this post. The band was sounding great at our rehearsal last night. I'm looking forward to the night. It should be filled with lots of Christmas-warm-fuzzies. I'll do my best to post some pics or video clips.
This will likely be my last post until 2007. We'll be staying with my mother in Utah and she's still on good ol' dial-up, so I don't know if I'll have the stamina to even attempt the internet while we're there. Maybe I'll hop into a Starbucks and upload some pics of our skiing adventures.
Anyway, as we prepare to bid farewell to '06, I thought I'd share this recent video of my boys. It has nothing to do with Christmas. It's just silly. It makes me laugh. Maybe you will too!
