Hello all and happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with some special family time and a lot of holiday cheer. We enjoyed ourselves and made the most of our time together. There's at least another week off for us so we'll continue to find fun things to do as a family. Too bad there's not any good snow for a quick ski trip. Hopefully soon in the new year or at least in time for my birthday trip.
Here are last week's pictures:
Day 351- Sunday, 12/17/17
I got a new snow globe and I'm wishing for a winter wonderland like this, but sadly I know that it will not happen this year since we are very dry here in California yet again.
Day 352- Monday, 12/18/17
We don't typically go to the movies on a Monday night but it was the only time we could get good seats before Christmas. Afterward we hit up Black Bear Dinner for dinner and as you can see Justin couldn't wait to dig in--not even for a picture. LOL! It was all great fun and a nice treat.
Day 353- Tuesday, 12/19/17
Scout is wishing for a snowy Christmas and good ski conditions as well. We're all happy to see he enjoys skiing too.
Day 354- Wednesday, 12/20/17
At work on Wednesday I'm processing water samples for testing and trying to wrap things up for the holidays. Only one more work day after this before my winter break. In the evening we all settled down to watch the finale of yet another Survivor season. Great twist at the end to determine the final three.
Day 355- Thursday, 12/21/17
Justin is in a gift exchange with 7 of his close friends at school, and I helped him prepare some Christmas mix to give them in addition to the gifts he personally picked out for each one.
Day 356- Friday, 12/22/17
While the younger kids were still in school Tyler helped me bang out some wrapping, and Bella was sad that we didn't wrap anything for her although she thinks every gift bag is hers to open--a bad habit we must work on.
Day 357- Saturday, 12/23/17
On this gloomy and cold winter day I stayed inside with a warm oven and baked the day away while Tyler and Brandon worked together to decorate the gingerbread house. Justin was working but happily came home to a nice family dinner and some yummy treats for dessert.
That's it for this week. Check back next week for the last of 2017! I think we're all ready for a new year.
