This Wednesday I take my lab final and in 7 days, on Monday, I'll be taking my lecture final. And then this part of the journey will be DONE!! WooHoo. And I. Cannot. Wait.
I keep telling the kids, when I get out of school.....
we'll decorate the tree......
we'll go to the movies......
we'll stay up late and watch Christmas movies......
we'll start a puzzle.....
fill in the blank!
In a strange twist of blessings, we volunteered to host a family Christmas party this last weekend. And because of that, we had a tornado-type quick decorating session immediately after Thanksgiving. The boys decorating the outside and us girls decorating the inside. And the blessing in that....taking a break to have a fun time celebrating with family AND a festive and decorated home. Yay. Can't say that the decorating would have gotten done if not for that party.
|No ornaments yet, but we DID get the tree. So, I experimented a bit with my camera settings for the funky lights.|
|Love to cut out paper snowflakes. The movie "Elf" always inspires me. ;)|
|Reminds me of my childhood. Love the paper village. And now my kids do too!|
|Saw this idea online for these paper ornaments. Super easy and cute!|
|When we've been out and Marin see's caroling figures she asks, "don't you want those so you can get rid of those wrinkly carolers you have?" And I think, no way! I LOVE my wrinkly faced carolers.|
|Something about these little paper mache ornaments that make me smile. The colors? The glitter? Don't know but they were a new find and I like 'em!|
So as I suck it up for ONE MORE WEEK, I'm surrounded by things that make me smile.
Well, I'm guessing I won't be back for a few days. But I WILL be back!
BTW....99/100 on my paper that I did two weeks ago. Woohoo!
One more week, one more week!
