December Catch-up Post

No matter how many times I say I'm going to get back on this horse and be good about it I really never seem to be.
I have an excuse... it's called it's December and December is CRAZY!

I hope everyone had/is having a happy holiday no matter what you celebrate. (I'm making this very clear because I'm about to go off on the school district they started sending out emails that make them look like bigots. I'm not kidding it was was bad for any non-Christian and that was coming from a public school!... But that's a rant I won't go into right now.)

Let's focus on the positive so we had a great holiday and we are hoping for a great start to the New Year and I hope everyone else starts their New Year off right too!

Here are some pictures hopping around our craziness. 

 Here is Katherine all dressed up for her "Christmas Formal"
 I also took both girls down to get glasses. Brielle had to get replacements it was just time though her prescription didn't change too much I do try and keep up with it.
Katherine got glasses for the first time. She fought me at first so I let her go without and then she mentioned she had to move up in the classroom to see better and she admitted she needed them. It is easier when they aren't fighting you and I'm glad she came to the realization pretty quick on her own.
 Katherine is in the red hat at her band concert!

I apparently don't have pictures loaded up yet of Brielle at her concert but she had one this month too AND I played with my adult class grouped up with the 6th graders! Yes, my stomach was doing flip but I sure as heck did it!
Stitch 'n' Bitch group got together for our first Holiday Party! We went to the next biggest city over in Indiana and had Thai food and then spend the day in the craft store looking at things, being silly and generally just having an awesome time!

I took both the kids to the Science Museum. I had some free passes for us to get in and while we didn't stay long we went because I promised to take them to the star viewing. They have a portable planetarium they blow up and we all go inside and discuss the stars we can see in the winter sky.
The kids always enjoy this particular trip so even though we were having a rough busy day I made sure to fit it in with them.
Finally we had our holiday dinner. I made my Spiced Angel Food Cake and cooked up bread for bowls and this year's potato soup I did some stuff different and it came out very well so I need to perhaps make some notes to myself about it because it was all ate by the second day which is a record! We also had a ham that was very good though we got much too big of a ham and I'm quite tired of ham by now.

Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!

  1. Looks like you really enjoyed your holidays! I've been having trouble keeping up with my blog as well (obviously,ha!) but maybe we can both be better about posting in the new year.
