Last night we watched Frosty the Snowman as a family. One half hour of television and the kids were so excited, you would have thought Santa already visited our home. Maybe we should return all of the gifts. We all snuggled under blankets and watched the show, even our dog, Stan. No one was running around or making messes because everyone was mesmerized by the holiday classic.
Anyhow, the kids were really well behaved all day yesterday so as a reward they earned the right to see it. Call me a cheater if you must, but I think it was a good deal since I dragged them to the bank, grocery store, Grandma's office, post office, the aquatic center and to Pizza Hut for lunch yesterday and all three of the kids were really good the entire time. You can't put a price on that, but if you must the cost to me is one half hour with the telly.
Now we are heading for some much needed quiet and relaxation time.
