I am officially on my second round of antibiotics for what is now an ear infection and my one request for this evening was to make it Christmas. So we did. After a trip to the minute clinic, we stopped at Lowe’s and picked out our tree. With the sweet sounds of The Dark Knight Rises in the background, we snacked on Thanksgiving leftovers and trimmed the tree. It is hard to believe that in just a few weeks it will really be Christmas! 2013 flew by.
