Almost December

It's almost December.  Just a few more days and the Christmas season will totally really really really be here.  Although it's kind of here at our house already, because we put our Christmas tree up on Friday after Thanksgiving.

So here are some updates:  The weather is finally changing and it seems to be officially winter weather.  Rainy and cold and when the sun does shine it's still a bit chilly out.  These pics were taken when it was still warm.

I've gotten most of our Christmas shopping done, totally through Amazon.  I love Amazon.

I've been running more consistently than I have since probably Jace was born, and because of that one of my toenails has turned black and will now probably fall off.  I'm still a looooooong way away from where I used to be.  And I'll probably never be back to where I was before I started having kids. But it feels good to be consistent and to be building up some endurance again.  Slow running endurance.  But still. 

I had a bunch of photo shoots for a few weeks and the extra money has been nice (Christmas, you know) it also has been nice to have a break.  But I have a couple scheduled this week, if they don't get rained out.  So that's good.  

We had a nice Thanksgiving break.  It was really low key and relaxed and I kind of didn't know what to do with myself and the kids.  So we watched a lot of movies and I shopped online and also I watched all the new Gilmore Girl episodes.  Oh and we put up the Christmas tree.  The kids are waiting to see if our little snowman will be whisked away to the North Pole and return with magic and move around at night.

He will.  But not until it gets a little closer to Christmas.  I think he'd be exhausted if he came alive so soon (wink wink).

They are putting in the culvert for our driveway out at the land this week.  So I suppose that's exciting.  And a little bit of progress.  

The boys are back to school today.  Woohoo.  And I have several meetings for a little committee that I'm on at school this week.  I still don't know whether I should curse my friend for making me sign up for this thing, or be glad to be a little more involved.  It goes back and forth. 

The primary program went great and all the primary kids did amazing and sang so well and I was so proud of them all!  And also I'm super glad it's over.  And I kind of feel like a teacher after the end of the year testing last school.  The test is over and now we can just play in sharing time until the new year, lol.
