We took a trip to the dollar store today--each girl with her dollar clenched in her tight little fist, so excited to buy a Halloween decoration you'd think we were on our way to either Disneyland or High School Musical. After at least 500 mind changes, darting back & forth between 3 aisles and close to 30 minutes later, Mike was ready to poke his eyes out. (5 minutes of shopping gets Mike's drawers in a twist...) Finally after some coersion, and I'll admit, some threats of bodily harm, they settled on their decorations, and we walked out of the store and into the first snowstorm of the year. With Halloween decorations in-hand, Brooke says, "Mom, look! It's Christmastime! It's Christmastime! Can we go home and put the tree up?"
