We are officially surrounded for the holidays

Good morning! Christmas is officially here. We successfully navigated all of the end of school parties and the kiddos are officially home for the holidays. Friday marked the grand finale for school. Of course, according to tradition, their classes were let go at just after 11:00 AM. I know I get little support for my vent about holidays before a holiday but I once again find myself at a loss to understand why the kiddos need a half day off before and after a school holiday.

Don't get me wrong. I love my kiddos. In fact, on Friday afternoon, I took off from work to entertain not only my usual gaggle of twerplets but I even recruited another to up my kid care skill level. Yes, on Friday, Jillian 2, came with us for lunch and an afternoon of play. At the very least, this also preempted some phone calls. You see, Jillian 2 is the other half of Sydney's little phone obsession duo. It turned out to be a great afternoon and evening. It was nice top see Sydney at home talking to something other than the phone.

There really is another person on the other end.

I do, however, also have an important announcement to make. As you know, Sydney and Graham are now on the Team GSX Tae Kwon Do team. Their team is raising money to make it to the USA Taekwondo Junior Olympics in Orlando. This is a big deal. We are talking the Junior Olympics here. On Tuesday (tomorrow) the Purple Cow in Fort Worth will be donating 15% of their sales to Team GSX Tae Kwon Do. Please ask your friends and coworkers to come by and have lunch, dinner, or both at the Purple Cow to help support Sydney and Graham's Team. Also, make sure they tell their waiter or waitress that they are there to support Team GSX. Please consider eating in or, if you can't, consider ordering out for your office. Either way we would sincerely appreciate your support. This is a simple, non invasive way for their team to cover some extremely significant costs for their team.

Please come out and support the team tomorrow

Lynley made this flier to hand out and post:

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Today I will be buried in a pile of purpii.
