in the meantime I have a couple things to share.
Y'all asked me where the picture was of our Advent Calendar poster from this year.
In the center at the bottom you can see a bit of Sonshine's snowman, lean your head to the left and you can see Gator's Christmas tree and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and if you lean your head to the right while using your imagination you can almost see the 3 or 4 orange dots that Sugars says are Chrismas lights. (I had them all color the poster at the same time sitting around the end of our kitchen table.)
I started off the year by working. Thurs, Fri, Sat nights, and this week I'll work Mon, Tues, Wed. (yes, you counted right, that's 6 out of 7 nights straight)
So last night, while Subvet was off at Mass and shopping was my first real time with the kids this year.....
The kids and I used our time to pack up all our indoor Christmas decorations. And I've gotten into a declutter and rearrange mood lately. So we're also moving some of our pretty's around and getting rid of some stuff too.
Once all the ornaments and lights were off the tree each kid gave it a hug and said "I love you Christmas Tree! See you next Christmas." to it before I disassembled it and packed it up.
To "celebrate" Sonshine and I conducted an experiment.
We put a glass (plastic fortunately...) of water in the freezer and left it for the night.
When he got up at FOUR THIS MORNING....all he wanted to do was check on that glass!!
Well, we found out that water will indeed freeze into ice overnight...and that it gets bigger! Big enough to break our glass!! So we set it in the sink and waited, once the ice had melted enough to come out of the glass we decided to continue our experimentation....
