best christmas ever

we had an awesome christmas.  between being abundantly, embarrassingly blessed, and with the several inches of snow which gave the kids daily opportunities to go outside for hours at a time and burn off excess energy, we made time for playing with toys, enjoying amazing meals, watching a couple of movies, playing some games, and just having a great little break. 

so much so that, quite frankly, getting back into the routine has been a difficult adjustment, at least for this daddy.  i have been thinking that i want to write about our time, with pictures to support my stories, but, to be honest, the hoards of pictures we took that need to be gone through are a bit daunting to me at the moment.  i've got emails to respond to and forms to fill out and statistical reports to complete and a sermon to write and so forth. 

so you're just going to have to take my word for it.  we had an awesome Christmas.  and a great new year celebration.  here's to a life-filled twenty-thirteen!

update:  as you can see i had success posting a picture.  however, i had to "beat the system" to do it.  apparently, blogger is having some known issues and is trying to work them out.  in the meantime, sweater vest santa says hello.

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
