my kids finally got sick. I think we’ve had a pretty healthy school year so no complaints from me.
and i finally got sick of having my garage full of basement stuff so… I’ve started cleaning and organizing the garage, cold storage and new basement closet. Still a lot to do. This was just old electronics!
Ray came home from wrestling practice with his tooth in his hand! It was pretty loose and just fell out during one of the drills. December 11, 2017.
The tooth fairy brought a pack of bubble gum and 4 quarters!
St. Nicks Day! Santa came and checked on the kids of this house! We got lots of candy and fun little pillows. The Spicy Starbursts were fun to try and so much yummy chocolate! And our Elf Chewy is back!
There is so much to do in December and you still have real life:
kids playing in the morning and getting Ray to school after lunch:
LaNell lets me come play basketball with her 9th grade team on Fridays. I brought the kids last time and we all had fun:
Wrestling Tournament at West Lake: Ray won again. Packer fought hard but lost. Benji had to wrestle West Lakes Varsity wrestler in his age 7th-9th and weight group – a 9th grader. He has had a hard season but he is being tough.
I loved watching the First Presidency Christmas Devotional this year! I miss President Monson.
Cali got her braces switched up:
and Ray has his first loose tooth:
Rose LOVES drawing and now teaching Ray how to draw:
I got to go to a Bridal Shower for Niece Shae!
ANd this kid just makes me happy!
This year for our party they chose to do service instead of a fancy dinner, program and santa! It turned out great! We went and helped with kits and crafts and projects. Ben took a turn reading to the little kids while parents were busy serving. I think it was a great idea. A good change and fun to serve.
