Holiday travelogue, days 3 and 4: Christmas Day and shopping with Sarah.

Laurel woke up at 0630 on Christmas morning and opened her stocking while I separated eggs to help Mom brunch preparation. Dave and Sarah sleepily joined us in the living room and opened their stockings while we waited for Amy and Branden to come over. I amused everyone by grabbing my stocking near the bottom, unintentionally dumping an item I hadn't put in it: a new cell phone. Luckily it landed on a pile of magazines and was unharmed.

After that we ran out to Wal-Mart to pick up mascara. Along the way we picked up soda-flavored lip balm, a case to hold Littlest Pet Shop figurines, and a marked-down Bratz Babyz doll. We ran into Frazer (the younger), who I wouldn't have recognized if Sarah hadn't mentioned it. Made him laugh by offering Sarah $20 to do a cartwheel in the store. She didn't take the bait.

Holiday travelogue, days 5 and 6: more snow, Eagle COH and Zoolights

In case we didn't get enough snow on Christmas Day (an even foot [30 cm] here), we got more on Thursday. I only shoveled a little this time since the charm of shoveling wore off after the second time on Christmas Day.

I have totally forgotten most of Friday. Consider this a placeholder until I upload photos to Flickr (probably later tonight) and use the pictures as a springboard to ramble about Zoolights. I froze the snot in my nose out there.
