Ahhh...tis' the season.
Tis' the season for standing with hoards of sweaty children waiting for your turn to "Say Cheese". (Really, who decided that "cheese" was the perfect picture taking word anyways? Wouldn't "freeeeze", or "sneeeeeze", or "take my money pleeeeease" work just as well?)
Tis' the season for elbowing your way through the aisles of Target, even when all you need is a toe nail clipper.
Tis' the season for baking all kinds of delicious goodies that you don't make all year long (but still crave) then take a gander at the pile and realize that even if you took them to family, friends, co-workers, and the U.S. Navy...you still will have to eat pumpkin bread until Easter.
Tis' the season to try desperately to keep your house "holiday clean" (this is different from "It smells clean" clean, "eat off of the floor" clean, and the ever popular "toxic juice spill" clean) while simultaneously putting out decorations, gifts, food, ornaments, embellishments, kid crafts and other clutter-like objects and trying to maintain that "clean" feel to the house.
Tis' the season to show off the family to those who haven't really seen you all year, because your kids are to darn cute not to.
Tis' the season to hang out at home and play games, eat, and watch tv...beacause the rest of the year you have no good excuse.
Tis' the season to say "Merry Christmas" to you because we miss you, love you, and can't wait to see you again!
Merry Christmas, Love the Colemans
