And now....

October....


It was Ryan's birthday, but we also had a TRIPLE BIRTHDAY BASH!
I was featured on Shell's Blog for her Things They Can't Say!  It was definitely a SQEEEE kind of moment!

Kristin was in The Hobbit at school...
She was an Elf
Halloween, where my kids totally got into character and scored big time in the candy dept!


November...

We had some proud academic moments for the kids in November.  Plus, Kristin had also scored a 3.0 for the semester!  Which we found out AFTER this particular post been written.

Thanksgiving of course came along...and I named my big juicy bird...
Bubba!  He was as good as he looks!  

December...

 I talked about "The Signs of Weak Mind"  I also got very busy.... like most of us did.  And I got sick too.  Like most of us did.
That night, I literally almost cried myself to sleep.  Happily I am well again!


 And more importantly, I was healthy in time for Christmas!  And after all the presents were unwrapped, I shared how I got my craft on. 

And that was our year in review!  I can hardly wait to see what you all have to say!

How fun that your daughter was in The Hobbit! I would have loved to do something like that in school...of course, it wasn't so well known back then. And yay for being healthy again by Christmas!! Being sick during the holidays just sucks.

I was SOOO thanking my lucky stars we were all healthy for Christmas!

Emmy said...

Oh that sick picture is still so sad. And it was so fun seeing Kristin in The Hobbit. You did have a pretty turkey.

Thanks so much for hosting with me again.

I love their costumes and I'm glad you're feeling well again. Being sick (especially during the holidays) is no fun.
