In the midst of preparing and celebrating, I wanted to not forget what we were up to this past week. We did a light school schedule Monday through Wednesday (mostly so the kids wouldn’t get too bored or stir crazy!). Miss M did math and spelling review and read an assigned book. Mr E worked on reading Cat in the Hat and played math games:
We did lots of baking and treat making. The gingerbread people and house were from a kit that Grandma picked up for us after Christmas last year. Saving it didn’t work out as well as I hoped — the frosting and icing was very dried out!
And as always, we had lots of fun. And our new camera arrived (nothing fancy, just a point and shoot to replace an old one that was flaking out), causing me to follow kids around and get cute pictures. Tony and I also couldn’t resist opening up our Christmas gift to ourselves — a new espresso machine. And the big boxes it came in were like an early Christmas gift to the kids. 😉
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Between celebrating, traveling, attending a church conference and my quarterly editing deadline, I’m not anticipating posting for at least two weeks and maybe closer to three weeks. See you after Christmas break!
Linking up with Collage Friday!
