If you don't happen to have FB, this is what I posted this morning:
"Goodbye 190's, 180's, soon to be 170's. You can't stay, because 160's is on her way. She won't be staying long, though, because 150's and 140's are right behind her, ready to pass through. 130's, you can stay here forever. :)
(Yes, I just told my weight for all the world to see. Helps keep me accountable. :D)"
This has been a busy week for us with 4-H. First, on Tuesday night, the kids were in a Food Challenge Competition that is like the show "Chopped." It was fun to watch what they came up with. Since there were only 9 teams total, all will get to go to the District competition in April.
Tonight, Michaela performed in a talent show competition for 4-H. She sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow. She was nervous, but did pretty well. She had a couple of sour notes, but at least she got up there and did it! I know I couldn't have done that. Not to mention, she looked as cute as a button! Since there were only 2 vocalists and the top 2 go to district competition, she will be doing that in April, as well. The district competition will be held at Sam Houston State.
If the kids place in their categories for that competition, then it's on to state competition in June (the week right after camp!!!) at Texas A&M.
We're making great memories!
I love Christmas movies! They're just good, wholesome entertainment. Around our house, we can't go through a Christmas season without It's A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street (old and new versions), The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, White Christmas, A Christmas Card, and many others.
I love the The Hallmark Channel this time of year. They practically play Christmas movies nonstop. Most of them are made-for-TV movies, but I just love them. In fact, I think I have my system set to record about 4 or 5 movies right now.
I love Christmas music, too. Our house rule, though, is no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving - but sometimes we bend that rule a little bit. :) If we're not listening to Sunny 99.1, then we're listening to one of our CD's. We used to get a new Christmas CD every year. Thanks to Alan, I was able to download a CD for free just a while ago!
This year, I also checked out some audio Christmas books from the library that the kids and I are listening to when we're running around town. Right now, we're listening to A Ghost Tale of Christmas. (based on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol - which is our next audio book on the list.)
I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I'm sitting in the dentist's office, waiting on my kiddos.
.... drinking my teeth-staining coffee, I might add, cuz I'm a rebel like that. :)
