FOR TODAY - Monday December 5, 2011
Outside my window... it's dark, but I see the twinkling of Christmas lights.
I am thinking... about teaching Kids Club this week. Old Testament prophesies of Jesus. If that doesn't put me in a Christmas mindset no amount of decorations will.
I am thankful for... a fun day with Grom filled with lots of fa's and la's.
From the learning rooms... pushing our way to Winter Break. I think we are both ready for a break.
From the kitchen... My parents made me the yummiest birthday dinner tonight. BBQ Chicken, broccoli, asparagus and rice-a-roni. Finished off with my sisters world famous chocolate cake. It was worth the wait.
I am wearing... comfy sweats and a tee.
I am creating... Christmas memories. When I say, "fa"... you say, "la la la".
I am going... to sleep well tonight... I'm bushed.
I am reading... listening to Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, a new book by Michael Baron that I can't remember the name of (I'm sure I will still be reading it next week). Grom and I just finished The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L.Frank Baum. We started A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, but I don't think Grom will stick with it.
I am hoping... to send out Christmas cards this year. I'm not sure when I last did it.
Around the house... it looks a lot like Christmas. I should share some pictures.
One of my favorite things... the seat warmers in my van. So toasty. Especially on cold morning drives to the gym.
Vocabulary word of the week:
paroxysm - a sudden, uncontrollable outburst
Christmas music strikes some people I know with paroxysms of happiness.
A few plans for the rest of the week: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Women's Christmas Tea, Christmas Tea Party with the Girlies, Christmas Dinner, Gingerbread House Party and more Christmas prefixed fun.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Grom and I were surprised when we came out of our rooms wearing the same color shirts and jeans.
We just had to both wear our Chucks.
Twins for the day!
