A TRADITION IN THE KEEPING:
Each year, when the first *real* snow falls, we keep our tradition.
That is, being, we all pile into the vehicle, put in the chosen christmas cd (charlotte church this time), and drive with no destination in mind.
Thankfully, i was feeling well enough for the little jaunt. Because today, the snow was f al l in g.
And drew was the official direction giver.
And we had these great coupons so we decided to crash B&N.
I got some much needed reading time in with the boys & John was able to spark his most recent dinosaur interest with the small visual feast there.
family time. free *bucks. fun.
Especially when drew said, "I don't really like just driving around."
Hey! Who's tradition is this anyway?
Yours or ours?? :)
Isn't that just classic. You think everyone's enjoying this thing called "tradition" because, well, you know, it's "tradition" and as long as you do it every year that makes it special, right? And as long as we're all here, we might as well stick a label on it and call it fun! Well, I guess after being cooped up in the house for a couple of days you really can appreciate the little things. Even just driving around town watching the snowflakes swiftly scatter with the chime of bells in the background. And free starbucks. Well, that right there just makes me happy!
As for Drew, I am sure he heard that B&N was in the plans. Can you blame him?
p.s. I promise a post--soon-- for the "character training of the boys." Hang with me! I need to get some pictures to go along with it! :)
