Five on Friday, the holiday edition

1. I bought us tickets for this Christmas lights bus tour. We were very excited for the first 18 minutes.

And now we’re sitting in the back of a bus for two hours, looking at a small handful of Christmas lights and I’m watching Matty B grow more nauseous by the minute (dude gets crazy carsick). We finally ended up doing this:

The population of this tour is 90% senior citizen. That should’ve been my signal to hightail it home.

Now we know.

2. We’re having a swingin’ holiday party tomorrow night so I spent this afternoon doing what I do best:

Dipping things in chocolate.

3. My favorite sacred Christmas song is “Go Tell It On The Mountain.” My favorite secular song is “The Christmas Song”- you know, chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Side note: chestnuts are gross.

4. Both kids had their Christmas programs this week. I cried. My kids +songs+prayer=tears for mama.

She was “F is for frankincense.”

5. We’re still on the bus. I’m pretty sure Matty B is going to vomit.

  1. Dad and Marilyn sure enjoyed the kids programs this week.  They’ve stayed down all week so they could go to all of them.  Usually go back up on Wednesdays.  I missed out on everything this year.Uncle Dave went into ER today to check out chest pains.  Seems to be ok. I told him  Leens have good hearts…Trying to take good care of mom.    Sounds like perty exciting trip tonite…smart move on ipads

    • It was so sweet of them to come- and to ALL of them! They’re the best. So sorry you missed out, but there’s always the traditional Leen Christmas Eve talent show and you won’t want to miss that!
