Tuesday was the holiday concert at school - having kids one year apart we were lucky and got to see all the classes preform as they broke them up into 2 concerts (grade K,2,4 and 1,3,5). They kids all did a great job. Wednesday - was a doctor appt for Emily after school and I had them both get flu shots. What an ordeal with the shots! Emily had a crying fit because she didn't want it that day with gymnastics that night. Yup, 20 minutes of crying and she scared off one nurse. She tensed up so of course her arm hurt. Thursday.... We had to pop to the dollar tree and get little gifts for filling all the stockings in his classroom. I also got a few things for the troop party on Monday. A friend was there too - so she took Emily with her and Aidan and I hit walmart and got gift cards for his teachers gifts then went to his guitar lesson. We picked up Emily from her play date after and it took a bit to get my kids out of there - they were all playing in the back yard. We will have to do some play dates over break... and I offered to take her 2 if she needs quiet time to write. She is starting to write a book (something new!) and is working with a publisher. Fingers crossed it works out for her!
Friday... was a busy day and I had to make up some hours at work in the afternoon so the kids were on their own. It was the first day in 2 weeks I did not hit my 10K step goal. Might have to take the kids to the new paved trails in the forest to make up some steps today!
The only bit of sewing I got this week was to make a couple of very simple pot holders for Mom! The package in a Zappos box should arrive to you by Wednesday the 20th Mom! You can open it - the things I wanted for a surprise are wrapped to go under the tree. Dad can open the plain colored one for his late birthday present.
I got to pull up a video on how to finish them by Nancy Zimmerman. She will be missed in the sewing and quilting world. I am hoping her family is able to share lots of good memories of her on this first Christmas season without her.
After bowling and Papa A's visit this afternoon.... I am hoping to add a border to this little log cabin throw and hope to get it pinned and quilted tomorrow while the kids are at Grandma's. Linking up to the RSC Challenge. Better go start my day!
Oh - Mom - Emily made the thumbprint peanut butter and jelly cookies from the cookbook you got her last night!
