Insights from This Holiday Season

It's okay to serve ham for Thanksgiving. The turkeys will applaud.

Gravy sloshes. Use cling wrap, not aluminum foil.

Don't let your 8-year-old meet that person in the cow costume at Chick-Fil-A. She'll stop eating beef.

It's impossible to have a clean house while you decorate for Christmas.

You don't have to use every decoration you own in order to have an adequately festive house.

It's better to wear a bra that's too big than wear a bra that's too small.

Making omelets isn't for sissies.

It's okay to give away Christmas decorations that you don't like. Free up the tote!

If you throw a wad of paper at the trash can and you miss, walk over there and pick it up. Place it in the trash can. You don't have to leave it in the floor.

Caribou Coffee's Hot Apple Blast is more soothing to a sore throat than Robitussin.

O.K. - I have no idea what the bra size thing has to do with the holiday season, but that's too funny! Things are going so well for us - thanks for your prayers. Can't wait for you to meet our Christmas present! Isn't it awesome that for the rest of my life I'll get to call her that? One more observation about this holiday season - I think everyone should spend at least one Christmas in a foreign country - it can totally change your perspective on the meaning of the holiday. Miss you!
