Working on Sammi’s science experiments
Bearkat Pride Award for Becca from her Chemistry teacher. She was the only one that made an A on a certain test in all of her periods. Pretty cool. Lizzy is delighted because Santa wrote back!
Caroling and looking at lights for Family Home Evening. More outside fun – investigating tree bark and the trampoline (Bella loved it!)
Tuesday night was Becca’s Orchestra Concert. I got there a little late (nursing shift change), but I got there before she performed!
Jason loves this first one – the choir is amazing!
Sammi and Daddy sewing – Sam made this little bag and Jason used an old shirt to make Clara, the cat, a stocking.
One thing I love about Sammi is how she always adds a flair to everything she does – like arranging the taco shells as a flower. Sammi started Chiropractic adjustments for her scoliosis and constant headaches. It seems to be helping. The doctor says it’s amazing how quickly young muscles and bones can adjust. Yeah for relief!
Bella’s Cardiology appointment The beautiful Becca
Teachers gifts and class parties on Friday!
The park – I have loved the Fall Foliage this year!
Everyone else had school parties – so did Sammi. We went to Panera for lunch.
Jessi came home on the last day with her new 5th Grade shirt. Friday was also my Dad’s birthday. We made him a Longhorn blanket.
Saturday we went to the Nutcracker with Grandma, Mandy, Kathie, and Katie. Dinner first at Sweet Tomato.
On Sunday we went to a nursing home where the kids performed and we all sang. Afterwards we all went to Kathie’s and decorated sugar cookies.
With school out, we had more time on our hands, Becca and I did this puzzle – much harder than it looks! And this – a small plumbing problem. The nurses came in one night and said that water was bubbling up through the center of the road. We called the water company. Turns out a pipe burst under the road. Crazy stuff! Poor guys were out there working on Christmas Eve!
Monday was Jason and I’s 19th Wedding Anniversary. Nineteen years of marriage on December the 19th! We went out and enjoyed some seafood and then went Christmas shopping.
Becca working on her Latin Project. The front turned out really nice.
Becca went with TFME (Texas Future Music Educators) to play Christmas music at a nursing home. Then they went to CiCi’s for pizza! Her two great loves!
Sammi had some friends over to play on the Wii. I love this picture – Lizzy is using two controls. So she has to dance for two different people. Funny to watch.
More friend Wii time Swinging!
Heading out to play at the park and have a picnic! Sleeping on Daddy
