Christmas Goodies

Michael and I had a wonderful Christmas with our families and friends. We attended five different family gatherings in a 24 hour time span. I think that is a new record for us. Needless to say we are exhausted, but it was well worth it. Unfortunately we don't get to spend enough time with family, so I treasure every minute that we can get. I hate that schedules get sooooo busy that we have to rely on holidays to get together. Maybe that can be one of the MANY New Years resolutions that Michael and I can make.

The Best Last Day

Okay, so normally the last day of school before Christmas is the worst day of the school year. I understand why. We get out early, its party day, Its Party Day, ITS PARTY DAY, and they seem to think that it doesn't matter if they get in trouble. I cannot speak for the rest of the teachers in my school, there were 2 fights before 9:00 this morning, but I just finished up the best "last" day ever! I am probably a horrible MUSIC teacher for doing this, but on days like this it doesn't matter. I took every one of my classes to the computer lab. We played games. games, and more games. The kids were calm. The kids were smiling. The kids were happy. I WAS HAPPY.

Our First Blog

Michael and I have enjoyed reading so many of our friends blogs that we finally decided to get one started ourselves. I must say that it really nice being able to catch up with all of our old and new friends through the use of a computer. No...its not as nice as the real thing, but it helps.

Michael and I have not had a whole lot going on lately outside of work, work, work, band, band,band. In fact, Michael is helping out at the Junior High Concert as we speak. Hopefully with Christmas here, his schedule will calm down and we can spend more time together. That will make his mom happy. Yes, we have to see each other if we ever hope to start on the kid thing again.

Zoe seems to have made it through her surgery okay. She's been our entertainment the last couple of weeks, walking around the house with her big "lampshade" on her head. She doesn't seem to mind it at all, but it makes those everyday things, like eating, quite a challenge. Tonight, she figured out how to shove the cone up under her bowl, jerk her head up, and throw the bowl and food all over the kitchen. I just knew she was about to break it. She gets her stitches out on Friday!! Hopefully that will be the end of the whole ordeal and she will be her happy, lovable self for many, many years to come.

Happy Holidays!!
