And you can smile when your daughter calls to tell you how annoying life is. How she missed most of her calculus study group because she had to pick up her brother from school and run him to basketball practice. And how the twins haven't done any of their chores. And how they wanted to drink root beer for dinner. And how Lulu shredded her toy pheasant so now there's stuffing all over the floor. And how ALL the leaves have fallen and you can't even see the lawn OR the driveway.
We saw other cool things too, like the North Pole. I had no idea the North Pole was in Colorada.
And I had no idea Santa was so . . . creepy.
Not only did Santa build his workshop in Colorada, the Gods planted their gardens here too.
Are you thinking what I think you're thinking? That the Gods must be crazy to plant their gardens in Colorada when Utah is right next door?
We'll this is the place to plant a perfectly godly garden. (Get it? This is the place? Cracking myself up again.)
Here I am touching the godly garden. For good luck, of course.
And here I am taking photographic evidence of myself taking photographic evidence of the godly garden.
Lastly, but not leastly, we walked around cute little local shops in Manitou Springs and bought homemade fudge and greeting cards. (I get enchanted with cute little local shops. Absolutely, positively enchanted. Especially when they sell composition books and greeting cards sporting pithy, poignant sayings.)
And bags sporting the Eiffel Tower.
There were two greeting cards that I wanted to buy for you guys, since you got me into the top 20 of the SAM-e Good Mood Blogger gig.
I thought this was appropriate since Shakespeare said it. And we all know how I feel about Shakespeare.
And I thought this was appropriate since it's . . . an old saying.
And we all know how I feel about old sayings.
(How do I feel about old sayings again?)
