Hello December...how I miss you! Let's get started!
Dec 1st was Joey's birthday and to "celebrate" we went to a concert at a local college...it was BEAUTIFUL, as was the company!!
19 pianos on one stage!!!
Owen finalllllllly had an eye appointment. His glasses have been broken...pretty much since the week after he got them.
That weekend we celebrated Joey's birthday with friends from church!! I haven't had that many people in my house before, but it was great and we all had a wonderful time!!
Monday, the 5th, Aidan finalllllly had an eye appointment. His glasses never broke...but he hadn't had an exam in 2 or 3 years. Yikes. #momfail
I came down with a stomach bug that Thursday and it hung around till Friday afternoon. My major joints ached as well. The only plus was weight loss! Hahahaha!!
I finally remembered to take a pic of our mantle and tree!! 😍
The 14th Owen had his Gingerbread Man play in his class! Little cutie pies!!
Then Friday was party day at school, so I made sure they were all dressed Christmasy!!
Saturday I had choir rehersal for our Candelight service that Sunday.
Then we headed to Linda's house to celebrate her new digs!! She had a huge turnout and we had a great time.
That Sunday after church we headed out to eat to celebrate our friend George graduating with his Masters from Penn State!
Monday morning came way too early and it was WAY too cold...hence our attire. But we did it and were proud!!!
Tuesday was our last day at work...it was a half day and our boss took us to lunch at Olive Garden. Here we are on our way to lunch...just acting like a bunch of goofs.
All four kids had dental checkups this week. Two days at the dentist wasn't so bad when it only takes 30 minutes each time!
When we are out of school for a good bit we always play Monopoly and UNO. Sometimes Dominos. And sometimes we dress up in beautiful costumes Gaga made!
Christmas Eve Eve we met Memaw for lunch and she took the kiddos until CE dinner.
CE day I was so productive...baking, cooking, wrapping presents and watching my favorite Christmas movies!! It was really a wonderful day! I also took a picture of my newest ornament...a gold "Z" to represent Zach. 💓
Christmas (which I've already blogged about) came and went and I think we all felt like my dad by the end of the day....
The last week of December was filled with lots of this ....
...and more of this.
Wednesday I made the kids run/scooter the neighborhood with me. Owen was exhausted, but liked stretching afterwards! Ha!
Gma, mom and myself went to a local shoe store because they were having a big sale. Gma got some beautiful shoes, but mom is showing you a good example of what was available in our sizes!! 😂😂😂
And to end the month I met Joey for lunch at Cheesecake Factory! It was delicious!!
I will blog about NYE as soon as I can get my computer to make my pics available...grrr. Anywho..December was wonderful and sad and fast and somedays painfully slow...but it was a great month for sure.
