I have learned that in order to truly appreciate a white Christmas you need to come to somewhere like CA. Just yesterday my grandmother was talking to a little boy and mentioned the lack of snow. He told her that when they wanted snow, all they had to do was go to the mountains. The mountains are and hour away! My aunt Cathy (that's who we're visiting) likes to say that in California the snow knows where it belongs. Well, for me this is the first green Christmas I've had in... what... 5 years? Maybe more... WOW...

American Coins

Ready for a funny story... here goes.
For the past year my mom has been gathering all of her change in a Christmas Jar to give to someone in need. Well, today we were counting it and, noticing how many quarters there were, I decided to see if I could find all 50 states. Well, after 1 hr. 30 min. of searching through all those coins TWICE, I have uncovered all of the fifty states, except for Arkansas. I am mad.
