The girls were ecstatic to receive their Little Dragon red and green belts. Yay girls!
Elisha had a bow staff class on Saturday and loved it. He was showing me some things when he came home and it looked pretty neat- I was intrigued enough to maybe take a class- PapPap tells me I'd just hurt myself~
It was a more relaxing week than normal- Mark was off for the week so we were actually able to watch Survivor together-- Jacob didn't make it. His long day in the woods with Daddy caught up to him.
After a week-long back injury of some sort and feeling like a HUGE slug because I wasn't able to do any exercise, I finally had enough... I was feeling well enough to move around a bit yesterday and I did it.... gasp..... even after vowing never to do it before Thanksgiving.... don't yell Mom.... I put up the Christmas decorations.... figured it was totally justifiable because if I didn't do it now, I wouldn't have time in the next few weeks. Works for me ;) The children are a little upset that I won't turn the lights on yet- that can wait until after Turkey Day... just like I said Christmas music should wait until after Thanksgiving Dinner- I caved in the car when all 4 started crying because I wouldn't let them listen to Frosty the Snowman...... ahhhhh, it's started already.... wake me up on Jan. 3rd--- in the Bahamas ;)
Oh- and by the way- the squirrel feeder looks the SAME as it has for a week now... hmmm...
PS. Hey Carrie- the 'palace' is looking good all decorated up- LOL! Quick funny story for you- Mark and I actually used to call this house the Taj Mahal because Mark's Dad and Mom were ALWAYS working on it and were never just satisfied with finishing one thing- that one thing always led to something else and another project.... used to drive us crazy- and now we're living in it- funny how life works out!
