Christmas Family Time

After Christmas Eve service, we dropped dad off at home, them Mom, Grandma and I went driving around looking at lights. When we got back, my sis and niece were here. They spent last night over. We got up this morning, and dad made pancakes for breakfast. My niece read the Christmas story from Luke 2, then she and my sis passed out the presents, and we opened them. One person opens all of their presents at a time. After they were opened, both my niece and I went on a scavenger hunt following clues to find our last presents. My niece had two to find. Then we played Apples to Apples. My dad won the game, then we, without grandma, went to see Timmy. Came home, got food together to eat.

There is a pic of my sis, niece, brother and myself. Another one of my niece wearing her new Elmo hoodie. My brother in his new Cookie Monster shirt, opening another gift. My parents sitting on the couch while one of them is opening a present. We just got him clothes this year.

Merry Christmas

If it weren't for Christmas, then we wouldn't have Easter! Have a Blessed Christmas! Remember the greatest gift that was given to us.

Getting a Crown

For the past month or two, I've had problems chewing the right side of my mouth. I have a dentist appointment in March and knew I couldn't wait until then to see the dentist. I called a couple of weeks ago, and got in this morning, after get blood work done at the Cancer Center, where I saw my buddies. My dentist took an xray of my tooth, and did a couple of quick tests, and he had three theories as to what was wrong. His theories were wrong. He was surprised to see I had a crack in one of my molars. I have an appointment in three weeks to start the process of getting my tooth ready for a crown. He re sized my bite, hoping that I should be able to chew on that side much easier now. The right side is still sore, but able to chew some on that side.

I will be taking my first "sick" day on the 12th to start the process of getting my tooth ready for a crown. I will be at the dentist for 2 hours. The lady there, couldn't find a convenient time in the afternoon or a non school day, so we went with a morning. She said my mouth will be sore for a while when they are done.

Christas Break

First day of Christmas Break!!!!! I had been looking forward to Christmas break. The school year is about half way over. It is hard to believe that. My favorite part of my two snow days earlier this week, was just sitting there reading. I read, Francine River's "Her Daughter's Dream". I had actually started reading it the week before, but with it being over 570 pages and I not having much time to read, I hadn't gotten very far into it.

We had our party after lunch yesterday, and before they got to eat the cupcakes and cookies that were brought it, I played Connect Four against each of my kids. I played against the 17 who were there, and won like 10-11 of the games. They enjoyed playing against me.

I do have a bit of grading to do, and am hoping to get it done this weekend. I had lunch today with two girlfriends, and that was nice. Going to have supper with my best friend Monday night. Getting a couple of massages over break, going to Curves about 3 times each week, getting blood work done, going to the dentist, picking up my new comprehension stocking, seeing the eye doctor, do some cleaning, celebrating my niece's birthday, and spending a lot of time with a friend, and doing some reading. Those are my plans for the next two weeks.

Snow Day

The first snow day of the year! This is the second snow storm this month. We had a storm last week, but still had school. Very few schools are opened today, just about everybody is closed today. It is bitterly cold outside! I know, since I walked down the driveway to get the newspaper and to take pictures. I even got all of my presents wrapped this morning. I did not take any pictures last week. Here are a few of the pics I took this morning. I have gorgeous views outside my windows.

I am at a technology staff development, and I used the words to "You are God alone" by Phillips, Craig, & Dean in Here it is.
