I have been so bad with updating my blog…I need to make myself a reminder every day! Last week was a busy one here and this week is looking to be the same. I can’t wait for Christmas vacation because I really need a break from all of this craziness!!!
Last Wednesday, my Brownie troop decorated cardboard boxes for Kitty forts to be donated to the local Humane Society. They had a ton of fun but let me tell you it was one messy meeting!!! Since we did not have school yesterday, we took a field trip to drop the kitty forts off and got to take a tour of the facility. The girls said it was their favorite field trip so far this year – wouldn’t it figure to be the free one! LOL!
Here is a group photo I took yesterday of all of the girls with their kitty forts…
Friday we went to the OPC (Older Persons Community) for a Santa Stroll. We went with Ken’s family and had a great time. This was the first year since Jacquelyn was a baby that she sat on Santa’s lap. My brave little girl!!! Ben on the other hand, has loved Santa for years and never really had a problem with sitting on his lap. The kids got their faces painted (Ben got his hand painted), the wrote a letter to Santa, there was a bake sale so we got some goodies and had dinner with the family. Great fun!!!
Here are some pictures from that….
Saturday morning my sister called me and asked if we would meet them to see Santa (again) downtown. I really didn’t want to but the kids were excited to go…that is until we got there! But with a little bribery (Starbuck’s peppermint hot chocolate) they were all set to go. Jackie had a birthday party that afternoon and then later we had a movie night…we watched Shrek 3, Santa Clause 3 & Polar Express. It was a great day!
Here are a couple pictures from this Santa trip…
