No, I'm not kidding

Evan sat on the runway in Hartford for 5.5 hours.
Evan spent the night in Dallas at his own expense.
The advance party went up a day early to avoid the snow.
The snow came anyways...we're talking over a foot.
Bryce stayed behind to pick up Evan.
Bryce and Evan wrecked outside Pocatello.
Santa dropped all the Christmas presents down an embankment...silly Santa.
Advance party arrived at rented cabin.
Sawyer found rat poison in rented cabin...Erin found rat poison in Sawyer's mouth.
Megan found dead mouse in bedroom of rented cabin.
= All within the first 28 hours of Christmas vacation.

Awesome.

PS: So far no one has died, so that's about as successful as our vacations get.

That sounds like a normal day in my life with my kids... Don't feel bad... It doesn't get any better, but you get used to it!

oh. my. gosh!!!! I guess the fact that I am enjoying partial hearing during this holiday season isn't as bad as it could be.

Holy cow, Erin. How are you holding up? Are you feelin' like someone is trying to wreck Christmas for you? Does insurance pay for your totaled car?- that's faster than selling it right? I 'm glad you are all right.
