Good 36º drizzly morning. Rained all day yesterday. Supposed to get a break. Ha! That's what the guy on the TV said and I don't believe them!

There was one moment on Christmas that made us all laugh. Sami unwrapped a gift and in it was a white gift box. She says, "A box! Now, that's what I'm talking about!" OMG, we all laughed so hard!!! What a character she is!

... and two more pictures ... I gave Tucker a gross of number 2 pencils (his request) and a gross of erasers for each pencil. He was happy happy happy!!!!

National Fruitcake Day

Didn't this year, but I love getting the fruitcake from Costco, dousing it with rum and let it sit a week before eating it. OMGOOD!!!

It is very appropriate for National Fruitcake Day to be celebrated shortly after Christmas. Once the holidays are over, it's time to get rid of your fruitcake. Giving a fruitcake is a Christmas tradition for many. It is also believed that recipients will re-wrap the fruitcake and give it to someone else. Who knows how many years, or decades, a fruitcake has been passed along? Ultimately, the trick is to make sure you give away the fruitcake before the holiday season is through. Otherwise, you get the joy of storing it, until the next fruitcake-giving season.

On National Fruitcake Day, those with a sweet tooth can celebrate by eating a slice or two. Otherwise, we suggest you use this day to give your fruitcake to someone....anyone.
