Last night, while helping her to bed, I told her that she's my princess. She then shook her head at me, and told me that she's not a princess anymore, she's a 'rock star'. I tried to tell her that she could be both a princess and a rock star, but she wouldn't have anything to do with it. She insisted I call her a rock star from now on. I consented by calling her "my favorite, beautiful princess rock star".

It made me proud to see my woman being so proactive and attacking a problem.

We visited Medford and my family for Christmas this year. We had a great time seeing Grandpa, Grandma, Uncles, Aunts, cousins, and friends. The bad weather gave us a challenge on the trip down, but the monster Tahoe with it's snow tires pulled through again. While most of Oregon was closing down due to the snowy conditions, our only problem was having enough room to pass the slow moving traffic.
Christmas eve was full of the usual traditions with the kids excitement for Santa's arrival growing every minute. As good American parents we continued to threaten our kids that Santa will bring coal if they weren't good all the way up through Christmas eve. We used the ole' 'naughty or nice' trick since Thanksgiving, but I sensed our kids not buying it probably half way through December.
