    BTW, if you are in Vegas and you have multiple security personnel surrounding you, you get quite the attention, lol.

    My cousin had a baby on Christmas Day! My cousins and I have waited a while to have kids of our own, but here we are. My cousin now has a two-year old son and her newborn daughter. My other cousin, her brother, is expecting his first in April. Kinda stinks that we are spread all over the country, but it's awesome that we all still keep in touch.

    Funny (to me) story... I knew my cousin was due 12/23. Wasn't sure when the baby would come. Bought a Lennox baby's first Christmas ornament (something I buy for all my cousin's kids), but returned it thinking the baby wouldn't be here. Re-ordered it, along with some cute outfits, on Christmas Day.

    Feel like things are already looking up for 2021.

    I played for five hours on the same machine. Didn't do what we had planned to do yesterday, but it was really hard to walk away when I kept hitting. Love free trips! :)

    Congrats, but...

    That belongs in Things That Suck and Rule thread (for the kid). Ugh. A Christmas birthday your entire life would definitely suck. Had some friends growing up that were in that boat and they all hated it. They never really got a real birthday because it was always Christmas.

    Yeah. Can't argue with that. Hoping that they will do the half-birthday thing for her.

    moved my first grader to a school that has been in person the whole school year. Half of kindergarten and half of first grade online was getting taxing, hurting her confidence and the teacher who was terrible at communicating what needs to be done and then coming to me with passive aggressive comments about things I didn't know about not being done was getting tiresome. Super excited to have her back in class full time and getting the education she needs. This school communicates better, handles covid better, handles online better, it's just a breath of fresh air today.
