A Christmas Carol...

I've spent my whole life thinking "A Muppet's Christmas Carol" was the ultimate rendition of Dicken's classic...but I turned over a new leaf and saw it on stage this year! And oh boy, while Kermit does a fine job, there's nothing like seeing real people (not a frog) act out this beautiful story. If you haven't seen it on stage, I highly, highly recommend you do!

A Christmas Carol testifies of redemption, forgiveness and the opportunity/ability to change. I came out with renewed hope that I, like Ebenezer, can become a better person, help those around me and look outside myself! Nothing better than A Christmas Carol to get me in the holiday spirit!

Gotta love a man in a skirt...

Here's some highlights from the Scottish Parade in Old Town Alexandria. It was freezing...but worth it to see those men in skirts :)

Bless their hearts...they came all the way from Scotland!

You Call THIS Mexican???

I'm really not a Mexican food fan...it's mostly just beans and rice to me. Bleh...but, I'm told the Mexican out here is sub par in comparison to Utah's Mexican. We've tried a few different spots...and have come to the conclusion that we're giving up.

Although, more than anything, isn't eating out about the experience? Forget the food, we're all about the fiesta :)
