“You are the one thing in this world, above all other things, that you must never give up on.” – Lili Reinhart

Fact of the Week

There is a stadium in Brazil in which the midfield line lies on the Equator, making each team defend one hemisphere.

Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Christmas Tree Tagged!

YEAH! Mom finally got the Christmas tree out! Here are the hardworking boys setting it up.

Such concentration! This is hard work!

Finished! You can't see the lights, but they are blue

When Alex was a baby, I bought him an ornament and started a tradition. I have bought my kids an ornament for Christmas every year. Now there are 49 and they cover the entire tree. It has been fun. What is sad is next year, I will give Alex his last one because he will turn 18 and become an official adult. I can't believe it has been 18 years since this tradition started! Also, if you are reading this, you have been tagged. You have to put a picture of your Christmas tree on your blog for everyone to see!
