What Frosty can Teach me

We were driving from Great Wolf Lodge to my parents house today for Christmas Eve and every one was excited after a great couple of days at the water park. (PS Jen that was a great idea) Anyway Frosty the Snow Man came on the radio and the kids were singing along. I was listening to the words when it came to me that the song could teach us all somehting. Imaging if you were born and given only one winter to live. Some would be mad at the world. Not Frosty. He was happy to thave the time that he was given and living life to the most. You might even say that when he came to the traffic cop a negative person it barely even phased him.

Make the most of your Christmas, Go laugh and play with the kids and live in the moment. Rarely do we have a chance to just celebrate together.

Make the most of this day.

Merry Christmas

Man things

So if you didn't know we had quite a snow yesterday and this morning. This gave me the ability to do a few "Man Things" that I think every man should experience.

First is AWD (All Wheel Drive) or 4WD (4 Wheel Drive) To be able to bust through 3 foot snow drifts and keep on going there is just something manly about this. Watching other cars struggle at intersections, stuck in parking lots and maybe even unable to get out of the garage. Sure, Jenifer drives her Tahoe in 4WD and can easily make it to work. Yet she does not enjoy the fun that can be had with this power.

Second is the ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) In this particular case it is the fun of driving through the snow, blading off the driveway and of definitely pulling the kids on the sled.

If you need to experience either of these give me a call. My neighborhood has plenty of willing driveways and I will be glad to show you how to take the 4WD off road.

Maybe if your lucky I can show you a third later this week and you can take both of these in the MUD!

From 60 to Blizzard?

I worked outside. It was in the upper 50's but the boys rode their four wheeler s and I vacuumed out the cars. It is forecast that we are going to have a blizzard today! Only in KS could this not only happen but almost be expected this time of year. Many times they have forecast the snow and none has come. We will see what happens.

More Carsenism's

We were looking at this picture earlier and a little later he comes up to me and says that "It takes a lot of money!" I was confused. He continues "We need lots of money to eat and get me toys" I was clueless. "Dad, that is why you have the perfect job, you need to save us lots of money" OK "Yea, you are the money making super hero"

Well duh!
