Addicted to Productivity

Is this a bad thing? It's so nice to see things coming together. It all started with learning to make pajamas. Everyone in the family is getting some for Christmas except Scott and myself. Even Elyssia's doll gets some:). Then I thought of something else to make and couldn't seem to stop. I'll wait til after Chr

I'm very excited to see the kids response to the homemade gifts that they haven't seen me making. I think waiting is the hardest for Elyssia. She declares at least once a day that it's too long to wait for all the surprises:).

Only 2 more big days to get through before we get to Alberta. Friday we're heading to the Glidden Hutterite Christmas Concert. Scott has to be somewhere else, so I'll be taking the kids by myself for the first time. We've visited without Scott, but not gone to the concert alone. Thankfully we know quite a few people that will be there, so I'm thinking it will be lots of fun. The second thing is our community supper that we're offering to the community on Sunday night. There have been a couple of responses already, so I'm hoping that means we'll have quite a few that come to share in the celebration of Jesus' Birth and allow us to be a blessing by serving them this one night of the year.

The kids have been very busy making their own surprises and finishing up the last week of school before holidays. There have been several interruptions, but overall we're quite a bit ahead of schedule. Looking forward to taking a break from things. We'll continue with the History lessons, since that's the kids favorite subject right now. I'm enjoying learning a lot of it for the 1st and 2nd time with them:). They're currently snuggled inside a homemade teepee in our living room discussing canoeing upstream and Jacques Cartier, etc...

The kids learned how to play Duck, Duck, Goose today. It was really funny to see Addie walking around bopping the others on the head and saying, "Duck!"

Caleb has recently been printing his name over and over. I'm thrilled that he mostly taught himself how to do it too:). I showed him a couple times, but he was the one that stuck with it and kept writing it til it looked right.

There's a certain warm glow coming from both the kids rooms. They really wanted to decorate their rooms, so I gave them each a set of Christmas lights. I have to say that it looks pretty cool. I didn't take a picture though, cause I never really get the colors right for those.

Happy Happy Wednesday!
