Can you believe we are approaching the middle on December already! The last 2 weeks have pretty much been a blur.
Thanksgiving was laid back and relaxed....just the way I like it. My mother, sister in law and 2 nephews came over. They all actually slept over from Wednesday night to Friday afternoon. CJ played in the Thanksgiving football game at the high school (they lost).
CJ was in the church musical this year. They did A Baby Changes Everything. He played Joseph. What a great job. CJ along with the girl who played Mary spoke volumes without ever saying a world. It was the first time I really looked at Joseph as Jesus' earthly father. I was one proud Mama : )
We *finally* got our Christmas tree up.
Chris and I went Christmas shopping on Thursday. Over the years we have cut our list WAY down. Now we buy for: Our kids, my Mom and Dad, my Dad's girlfriend, our 2 nephews, and our great-nephew. My 2 nieces are adults now and I am not sure what I am going to about them this year. My sister said not to worry about them, but how can I not. I am thinking of getting them Christmas ornaments since this was an eventful year for both---one got married and the other had a baby.
I guess my younger children are on a break from school---atleast from the regular subjects. We made snowflakes the other day out of paper. That counts right? CJ has been very diligent and has been doing school on his own. I am not sure when he is taking a break.
I am hoping to get back to blogging on a regular basis.
