Great Weekend

What a great weekend we've had! This time last month, were setting new record lows, and yesterday, we set a record high. It was 66 degrees here, so we spent a lot of time outside. John washed both of our cars, and we worked in the yard--we had tumbleweeds everywhere! Will and I even took a couple of rides around the block on scooters. (Mikaela, we have a great hill behind us, and we wished you were riding your scooter with us like you did at Thanksgiving!!!) January is typically our coldest month, but we're sure off to a warm start.

The kids are watching America's Funniest Home videos right now. It is such a funny show and it makes all of us laugh OUT LOUD!!! I always wonder when I'm watching it if any of those people that make us laugh the hardest ever get seriously hurt! Like the guy who just got smacked in the head by a falling tree--OUCH!

Well, the countdown begins today for the season premiere of our most favorite television show. Next Sunday, "24" premieres on Fox. We've got it on the calendar and will be counting down. Each season of "24" is twenty-four episodes long, and each episode is one hour of a day. So, the entire season covers ONE day, and as Jack Bauer says in the voice-over at the beginning of the show, it's the longest day of his life. It's pretty intense, and sometimes more violent than I care for, but the plot is great each season, and we're totally addicted. The great thing about it premiering in January is that they run all 24 episodes without repeats until the end of the season in May! If you've never watched it, give it a try! But be's addictive. Next Sunday night on FOX!!!!
