Two weekends ago, while my parents were in town, we baked Christmas cookies, set up our Christmas tree, and hung lights on the front of the house. These pictures perfectly illustrate the weather-related flaw in the holiday season here in Texas.
Though the air conditioning was running and they were wearing shorts and tank tops (or just shorts, in Hallie's case), the kids were still hot during our Christmas preparation activities. At least what little clothing they had on was red.
And here are my parents, Tom, and Will hanging the outside lights.
It is never alright to have to wear shorts while you hang up your Christmas lights. I broke a sweat just stepping outside to plug them in.
