Have the last two months really passed by? How did that happen?? It seems like yesterday that it was Halloween, and I was getting ready for parent-teacher conferences.
Let’s go back in time and re-cap what’s been going on.
Things at my work started heating up with the prep for conferences and ratings that were due. We also had to make sure we were documenting notes about the children. We had a LOT of deadlines to meet, and it was overwhelming. But all of us made it through.
Jeremy got some part time work at Rachel’s Challenge doing IT things. We are hoping and praying that he will be asked on full time soon. But if not we’ll keep the faith that something fantastic will come. What a great place to work, though! They have the BEST employee morale boosting events that I’ve EVER heard of! Since he’s been there, they have had gift cards to Starbucks for the employees, costume contest, pumpkin decorating contest, pot luck, Thanksgiving lunch out to a restaurant, and so much more.
Here is Jeremy’s pumpkin. We used a drill and went old school with the design. He couldn’t really cut well because his back was tweaked that weekend.
He didn’t win.
There were pumpkins with way more character there, but it was fun to use the drill! (And his work even supplied the pumpkin!)
Thus ends October.
November was nice and busy with church commitments and business at work. Thanksgiving was lovely, and a whole week off was AWESOME!!! (Wish I got paid for the whole week though.) While prepping for Christmas set up, I found this in one of my boxes:
Hetty had made this sign a looooong time ago when we were still fascinated by New Kids On The Block. This was a nickname we had for them. Can’t even believe I found this! Just for old time’s sake, here is one of my favorite songs by them. Just the beginning notes of it take me back to 1989.
Okay. On we go. The day after Thanksgiving we always go to the Littleton Tree lighting ceremony, and I start to set up my Christmas decorations. (I say start to, because it took me about a week and a half to finish, and we still have the humongous train sitting in their boxes in my living room.) I had a couple of projects in mind for Christmas. One being a Christmas tree made out of a tomato cage. I actually made 2 of them with lights. I also wanted to re-label my Christmas boxes with something cuter than this:
I’m going to do a full on December/Christmas post soon. Stay tuned.
