On Friday, we went to Phelan Gardens and got our Christmas 2012 tree. She is currently sleeping in the garage, but we'll probably bring her in and get her all prettied up later today. When I told the kids where we were headed, they just thought it amusing that we were getting our tree from felons.
On that same day, Meego's real Christmas gift arrived via Santa-disguised-as-a-UPS driver. But... where are my vacuum cleaner bags?
I'm also happy to say that there were no drug busts at our house this week and that we have decorative lights that actually light up now.
In other mishap news, however, Wolfgang and some friends went to the Sports Climbing Center a couple of nights ago. This is a local indoor rock climbing gym. Much fun! They were on their way out the door when Dylan, one of the buddies, took an innocent last walk on the slackline.

Slackline is like a tightrope, only fatter and less tight, about yay....
So Dylan was moseying along the slackline when he did a hurkey~doo and ended up dislocating his kneecap.
Paramedics were called, kneecap was put back where it belonged. The silver liningness in it all is that no lasting damage was done. Dylan is fine. Teenagers. Remember the good old days of being one, when we could dislocate something and feel perfectly normal a few hours later??
In addition to the holiday prep, it was a pretty productive week in other to-do list type stuff too boring to blog about. Now I'm ready to settle in for some holiday downtime. I hope the same for my blogging buddies!
