Christmas Pictures

Here are some pictures from our Christmas break so far. I made it through the Holiday store at the school, and it was a huge success! I'm so glad that the kids enjoyed it.

We have had a nice couple of weeks out of school and the kids don't go back until January 5th. Chris still is not back to work, and it could be any day now. We are waiting for that call, but then again, I'm getting use to him being home, and not sure I'm really ready for him to go back. lol, but he has to.

There will be more pictures soon of the kids new playhouse. We had some lumber given to us, and after only about 150 more worth of stuff needed to finish it, the playhouse is almost complete. It is so nice, and Chris has had so much help from his step-dad, grandpa, and uncle. I hope to have it all painted and "play-able" tomorrow.

So here are the pictures:
These few are of the Holiday Store at the school that I decorated

I was so tired of hearing daily how no one wanted to clean the upstairs because the other kids messed it up, so wolla. Here is my solution to fix it. It took me three hours yesterday and I decided to make their own "stations" where the other children cannot get into to(well they can, but it's a barrier) that way they can't blame each other when their "station" isn't cleaned. I don't know if it will work, but hey I have to try! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and a has a Happy New Year!

I'm still here

We have been so busy lately. I am in charge of the Holiday Shop at school and have been crazy busy with that. It is a store where the kids can come and buy gifts for their moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas and siblings. It is so neat and the things are like .25 to 15.00. It's the first year the school has done it, so I hope it turns out great.

I plan on posting more later, and hopefully some pictures, but I've got to go now, we are all sick with a cold since the weather went from in the 60s yesterday morning to below 30 last night! Yuck! Hope everyone has a great week!
