Back in Buffalo for the Holidays

Posted by Craig on 11/28/2008
I am back in Buffalo, and I was greeted by a blanketing of snow (Chicago has yet to have snow stick this year). Nice to see and good to be home.

Had Thanksgiving dinner last night and it was great, as always. Mom makes a great spread every year, without fail, and we have a bunch of traditions like watching NFL football, having a family prayer before eating, and playing games (we did Yahtzee, Boggle, and trivia this year) which were nice to do again.

My girlfriend Nicole was also able to join us for the festivities - I'm so glad she was able to. It was great to see her, and it was wonderful to spend time with her, share in the meal, etc.

Before Nicole left today we played the Wii with my sister, and I do have to record here - I got my first ever Wii spare in Wii Sports/bowling! It's seriously a big deal for me because I'm not that good at the game, yet, lol. I have this bad habit/issue of curving the ball every time I release it; I'm getting better though. Got my first spare, my second ever strike, and a few more spares and strikes after that as well! So that was fun. The Wii is a blast -- even though Nicole is the Wii 301 Darts champion, winning 11 straight before my sister upset her.

I'm sure I'll update at least a few more times over the holidays - I'm here until Jan. 4. Looking forward to Christmas and New Years for sure. About to watch the Sabres game now...Let's go Buffalo!

ohh, I like snow, especially in such hot days I'm dreaming about white carpet. I propose you to visit privacy policy and look through propositions about essay writing. I think it would be handy
