6 things I learned on Christmas Eve 2007

  • 6 people sharing 2 double beds makes for a very poor night's sleep
  • parking overnight in the parking lot of the hotel you're staying at is not always included in the room rate
  • one person walking alone can travel from points A through B to C in the same time it takes two people with 3 kids to travel from point A straight to point C
  • visiting a huge childrens' museum on free admission day that also happens to be a holiday is like going to Disneyland in the summer- crazyness
  • traffic cops in Chicago have no soul (or Christmas spirit) and will not hesitate to give a ticket if you don't have your licence plate on the front of your car because there is no mount for one and you haven't bought one yet
  • Christmas Eve is best spent at home, hanging out with family- where no outside influences can work together to ruin the day

Adventures are always fun unless they co$t you money you don't have! But then hopefully you can find something fun about it! Mom

Sounds like a lot of fun? Maybe?

Weird about the license plate thing...we never took our Utah plate off the front of our car in AZ, since AZ only requires back plates. But then I got pulled over for it on my way to Joel's graduation. :)
