Have you given up on me? Guess what, we are ALIVE!
Not to understate things, but December turned out to be a busy month.
We tried to enjoy the holidays. Look at those little people. They woke up at 3:00 on Christmas morning, but my husband had mercy on me. He forced them to watch cartoons on the Lovesac until 5:00. Yes, these are the same children that I have to drag out of bed by their ankles at 8:00 on school days.

The last time we had a year this awesome was 2007. And then 2008 happened. And then 2009. Those were rough years. Those were humbling, learning years. I'm not prepared to repeat them. I am content with my current level of humility and knowledge, which means that 2013 will probably be a learning experience year. Darnit.
In other news, this is what I wrote at St. George News this week. It's about guns. If you have time on your hands, you should find the rest of what I've written in December, since I am too lazy to post them here. Ha.
