Good morning ladies, 11 days til Christmas, 7 days til Winter Solstice, and apparently I missed the start of Hanukkah, sorry about that!  What are in your plans for this weekend?  When are the kids out of school?

Ugh, could we just get the world to stand still for a little bit so I can get my head back together!  Let's see, DH has changed travel plans for Michigan at least 3 times in the last week alone.  So instead of him and Madison leaving tomorrow evening, now they are leaving on Tuesday evening. 

So, as of right now, today, I have a project or two I am working on.  We have lunch for my boss who is leaving at noon.  Tonight from 6-7 is the holiday concert/party at the daycare, but I don't know if we are going to make it or not.  Jordyn has a pep rally at 11:45 and is working from 4:30-6:30.

Tomorrow, Jordyn has to be at the school at 9:15 a.m. for the bus for the play off game (across town), they are tailgating from 10-11 and the game doesn't start til 1:00.  Not sure what in the world they are doing from 11-1.  We will need to get there early as we are playing the team from across town and it'll easily be a sell out game and we need to get decent seats for the girls to be able to move around a bit.  I am hoping to get groceries in the morning with DH, but we'll see how busy his schedule is with work stuff.  And it should be pretty quiet Saturday evening, looking forward to that.

Sunday, laundry, paperwork, house cleaning.  Jordyn has her cheerleading christmas party at 5:30, its a semi-formal sit down dinner and gift exchange.  We are going to go ahead of time and get the kids' pictures taken for the christmas card, I need to find a good spot to take them in town.  I'll have to see if I can make it downtown to see if there is a big christmas tree there or anything or if I need to go down to the big shopping complex that has a nicely decorated tree.  I also need to get Madison's bag packed, ipod charged and tv shows and movies transferred to it for the trip.  She doesn't have any snow boots, so either we'll go get some this weekend, or I'll leave it to DH to buy her some when they get to Michigan.

Have a great weekend!

Annie was amazing to see!  The cast (kids especially) did a fabulous job.  DH and Zeph enjoyed it also. 

This morning we are all seeing The Hobbit.  I have grocery shopping and a trip to the libary to do this afternoon.  

Saturday Zeph and my dad are having a Man Fest-dinner, movie?, and going shopping for a new Nerf blaster.  DH and I are going to see Breaking Dawn part 2 and have dinner out.

Sunday Zeph has homework and we all have some housework.  Zep hand I will make a gingerbread house.  That night we are watching It's a Wonderful Life.  DH has never seen it.

Morning.  We are on a roll with everyone getting up at a good time.  I made pancakes and turkey bacon and they gobbled it up.  I got it all done and they sat down to eat and I came over to check facebook and found out they were on a two hour school delay due to a water main break that happened last night.  But, looks like Natalie picked up that crud Katie had last week and is staying home.  I am doing some major house cleaning.  It's an extra cluttered week.  It's a mess.  Dishes are done washing, but I still have more to do cause I cleaned out the fridge and I can't get over how much leftovers there were in there.  Ugh.  So, now I have a ton of plastic containers to wash.  Tonight is pizza movie night with the family.

Saturday we are going to see The Hobbit.  I am also taking the kids shopping for Tim and each other.  Right now that is all I know that is planned.

Sunday, I think Tim has to work.  They are behind at work so he has to go in and work a bit.  I think, if Nat is feeling up to it, we are going to bring lunch to him and have lunch with him.  Not sure how solid that is.

Have a good weekend!

Hi, all.  I have been having trouble posting lately, so am happy to be here tonight.  We don't have any big plans for the weekend.  I will be studying for finals and putting finishing touches on an essay I am working on.  We will also be making treats for a church bake sale and cleaning the house.  MIL is coming to stay with us for Christmas.  She will be here on Wednesday and the place looks horrible.
