Twas the Monday before Christmas and all through the house,
little boys were crazy, bouncing off the walls of the house....
Okay, I am not a poet but last week was really busy. One of those weeks where your days are filled with errands and wrapping, and shopping and your nights are full of basketball and parties, and festive activities.
Here's a quick glimpse into our last week.
Dinner and seeing the lights piled into Grandma Judy's family truckster.
Zoo lights with Grandma and Grandpa.
Lots of Christmas crafting and baking (and basketball watching)
Preschool Christmas program participating and watching.
Exchanging gifts with very good friends.
Christmas program watching (and painted finger nails, fancy clothes, and out to dinner without the kids!)
On Saturday, we attended the funeral of Ross' 89 year old great uncle. He was a cool guy. It was a neat service. After the funeral he received a traditional military farewell with a 21 gun salute, flag folding ceremony, and a whole lot of cool. He was a WW II veteran and received the silver star for his service during the war - I was told that he helped liberate Vatican city when Italy was invaded by the allies.
Lots of parties and food and family and friends. More sugar than I every should have consumed, but consume it I did.
And that was just Monday through Sunday. This week we've already had crafts with friends (we painted ornaments which I've decided is the absolute coolest thing ever!). We've got more parties and family, festivities and food ahead of us. Believe it or not, I can hardly wait.
