I posted this on Facebook, but not here. This is our bedroom before and after the "new" carpet my Dad and Suzy gave us. We love it!
We've had a lot of this white stuff lately. I think three snowfalls in the past 30 days. Not a ton of snow, but enough to play in and that's all the kids care about.
We sang, played piano and did some readings at the rest home. Emily came home from school that day and wasn't feeling great, so she stayed home.
Here is Noah and Ben's reading. It was awesome. I even love the commotion about Oval (the 104 year old) lady almost spilling coffee on herself. That's Oval right in front int he blue jacket. She can't sit up really or hear or see. It's rather sad.
We had our neighborhood Christmas party at the clubhouse. Emily still didn't feel well enough to go. The kids did a this fun right/left game with candy. Always fun!
And more snow...
And somewhere in all this, Grammie came to visit from Florida. She took us to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Yum!
The kids put on a Grinch play. They wrote the story and had music and a narrator and the whole nine yards. It was awesome.
Aunt Pam came up too. She came before Christmas since she wanted to do something wintery with the kids. So, we went to the Gingerbread Village.
Noah loved the train that went around.
She wanted wintery, and Prescott did not disappoint.
Later that day, Noah puked. Then, we went down to my Dad and Suzy's for Christmas Adam. That's Christmas Eve Eve. Noah still wasn't feeling all that great.
The kids got spoiled with gifts.

My niece, Tiffany, doing Emily's skip it.
Then, Alisa and her kids showed up on Christmas Eve. Not sure where Greg was in this picture.
'Twas the night before chaos.
And then, the morning of chaos.
We had several nice meals with everyone at the table.
The girls in matching outfits.
And the boys, not sure where Ben was.
There was lots of playing outside.
And a final picture of Grammie with all 5 of her grandkids.
I love the holiday's and all that goes with it. The lights, the music, the merriment.
But, I like to pack it all up and move on.
And New Years is the perfect way to do that.
