Holiday Blessings

What a wonderful Christmas this year. For once, there's a nice layer of snow on the ground to make everything beautiful and white. I had the opportunity to spend some time with my mom, which was really nice. Spending time with family was fantastic, and hilarious because we're a goofy bunch. And hanging out with my kids was great because, well, they're great kids. All in all a great Christmas.

My loved ones sure have fun with the fact that I'm a Twins baseball fan. I received some very cool baseball-related gifts:

Book: Is this a Great Game or What? by Tim Kurkjian

Book: Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout by Kent Hrbeck

Movie: Everyone's Hero

A cool snowglobe thing where you try to put the baseball into the baseball glove

A baseball-shaped dip serving bowl with a bat-shaped spreader

Minnesota Twins calendar (too bad about half the guys featured are no longer or will no longer be Twins, but, oh well, good memories)

Minnesota Twins salt-and-pepper shakers

But the best gifts were the hugs and kisses and laughs and visits with these great people whom I have the privilege to call "family".

Oh man, I got that calendar last year and it had no-longer-Twins: Kyle Lohse, Shannon Stewart and Brad Radke.

This year I got the daily desk calendar so I will know all sorts of random stuff.
