daybook 12.5.11

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!
