"If he doesn't get too much taller I wouldn't really sweat it. Many people seem to over value the height issue in cars. I honestly think most men say they need a big car cause they wanted a big car, and they're tall so…"
"Can I be George Bailey? I'd like to be George Bailey.

This has been a fun tradition, everything from getting up @3:00am to go get the permit to getting stuck in the snow and have to rely on shovels, sweat, ingenuity, and kind strangers to get unstuck.
