More Randomness

Vacation! Vacation! Christmas Vacation! I am so excited! Although the kids say they are so much more excited than I am!  Their friends are out of school and visits are being scheduled, plans are being made. Grandparents and cousins, aunts and uncles, family time. It is my favorite thing about this time of year. Just being with the ones we love. Christmas party after Christmas party! Sitting and talking! Playing games! Making memories!

Stacy finished his semester with all A’s again. I’m so proud. He worked so hard this semester. And next semester will be more of the same. But until then we are going to enjoy having him all to ourselves. And I have my honey to do list all ready. Unfortunately, the pine wood derby car is taking a front seat and my list a back seat. There’s only one car to make this year, which is a little bitter sweet. But we still have several years of making Brason’s cars. He picked out a truck this year. We’ll see what they come up with.

I cut Amiah’s bangs today. Every time I think, I’ll just let them grow out, and then they get longer and they stay in her eyes. She refuses to keep barrettes or pony tails in. (which shouldn’t surprise you, she doesn’t like clothes either!) So they’re cut. Maybe we’ll let them grow out when she is a little older. The back is long and a mess if we just leave it down. But I love it too much to cut it. If you ask her if she wants it cut, she tells us No! And I don’t want to cut it because I have horrible memories about a 2nd grade mullet hair cut. I cried for weeks after my mom cut my hair. So I’m trying to avoid that. But maybe the bangs are almost as bad?

I am really looking forward to our Christmas services. Sunday morning the adult choir is singing and the service will be wonderful! Sunday night is the kids service. Drama, puppets, kids choir, little kids music and more! And then there is the Christmas Eve service! It is one of my favorite services of the year. It’s a candlelight service. We sing, and someone reads the story of Christs birth and we sing some more. And visit. It’s simple and beautiful. This year we’re having it in our new Life Center.

And so for tonight, that is it. I swear when I lay down at night I have all this witty stuff running through my head. It apparently doesn’t last until morning.  Or maybe it isn’t as witty as I think! I do have some ideas about where I want to head with my blog eventually. But I’m still working on those.

Merry Christmas all!

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11

  1. Emily had bangs once, and I’ve avoided them ever since. Only because I stink at trimming them!

    Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!
