*Last night we went to Applebees with the kids. I'm sure I need to lighten up, but do we have to have tablets everywhere we go? Do kids really need the restaurants to also give them an option to play games at every table? I realize that sometimes parents just want a nice dinner and need some entertainment for their little ones (as did we when the kids were little), but it just seems like tablets/phones have turned into an automatic rather than a last resort. Okay..I'll step down from my soapbox. :)
*One of our advent days has always been decorating a gingerbread house. This year I was too late and Costco had run out of them. I instead purchased the Ugly Sweater Cookie Kit. It was funny to hear the kids confusion with, "Why do we have to make them ugly???" :)
We invited the quads over for the decorating:
*I have about half an hour until I sub and the kids already left for school. I just finished my hot chocolate and am watching Gilmore Girls. Ahhh... :)
*I finished Killing Reagan last week and am now reading Killing Kennedy. REALLY good.
