It's my favorite holiday, Christmas. But this year is making me rethink that. I mean, it's the time of year when we spend a crazy amount of money on gifts. It's the only time of year that I have to drag boxes and boxes of decor, lights and a tree from the attic to get those unboxed and setup, then reverse that process when everything is over. It's a pain. The house is a mess after the carnage of opening multiple gifts which the kids may or may not have deserved. As a kid, this is hands down the greatest holiday ever. But as a parent, it kind of sucks.
Papa John's has a local deal on Monday where you get 50% off of your entire purchase if the Texans win on Sunday. Promo code: TEXANS (duh). So for the past couple of weeks, pizza was what's for dinner. Go Texans! Being that it's such a good deal, we're not ordering just one measly medium pizza. We're going big. So with leftovers, I can say that I've eaten pizza at least four times in the past two weeks. Needless to say, my diet as of late has been quite unhealthy. I'm almost glad the Texans lost yesterday because if they won again, I would have been forced to order more pizza since I simply cannot pass up a deal.
Christmas is just around the corner and it's time to shop for those gifts. We asked the kids what they would want for Christmas but they had no clue. Off the top of their heads, they couldn't come up with anything. I figured that they needed to visually see everything so we had them look through various store ads and toy catalogs to compile their Christmas wish list.
