I love Christmas
for so many reasons.
I especially love when I am the only
one awake and I can sit and enjoy
my coffee by the light of the tree.
This time is when I find myself
reflecting on the past and being
thankful for all that we have.
Really, it's the perfect
time of day!
This overhang of snow is bound
to fall on someone's
head before the end of the day!
It looks kind of pretty
and I think we may even turn the
lights on tonight!
I do have a purpose for this post.
This morning, when Ashley was patrolling,
a car was going to fast for the snowy conditions
(plus the fact they were in a school zone)
and couldn't stop in time.
Ashley almost got hit by this car but was,
paying attention and jumped out of the way.
I'm not entirely sure why this person couldn't see
Ashley standing out in the street.
She had on a bright yellow vest and had
a large red STOP sign in her hand!
Please, slow down
and respect the rules of the road!
One of my favorite things about the
Christmas season are
When I was pregnant with Ashley,
I ate a whole box in one day!
Yes, she does love them too
and no, I didn't ever get
sick of them.
This is definitely a staple
in our house until the end of
Jenna & Ashley had the crafting bug today!
They came to me this morning
and asked if they could make lip gloss
so off we went to
They successfully made 24 pots of lip gloss!
Chocolate, Chocolate-Mint, Strawberry,
Fruit Fiesta and
I used vinyl to label the pots so the girls
can tell which one they are using.
I guess I am starting to
understand exactly how a
14 year old's brain may
(or may not) work
After supper Zachary made a point
"I won't forget to put my cup in this time".
I turned around and saw this!
Unfortunately, this was the
second time for this exact attempt today!
We all had a good laugh over it
First, please excuse the poor
quality of this photo!
It was taken at 6:30 this morning
my battery died right after I took it!
Zachary got to go to work with
All of the grade 9's were
having work experience today!
Zach wasn't all that happy to
have had to get up at 5:30
and out the door by 6:30 but he
did it and it sounds like he's
had fun so far!
This is the second of my sister's
She was quite content just
looking out the window
This one's name is
and the other one's name is
We are definitely enjoying them!
