Christmas Break

It's the first official first day of Christmas break. It's also Cody's 5Th birthday!

I attended his Preschool program last week.
He was very proud of his shirt and tie...this kid loves his fashion. His little class had a great performance. Fun stuff for a grandma like me...the joy of being a grandma is being able to enjoy the stuff I was too young and frazzled to appreciate at a mom! I just sit back and watch!

I have a trip tomorrow for the day care group in our district. I am going to a museum about an hour away. Then I am off for the rest of the week. We have snow here, but not nearly as much as the east coast.

The past couple of weeks have been crazy at work, especially for a sub like me. I had to do a country route in a blowing and drifting snow storm. I made it back in one piece, but I passed plenty of cars in the ditch, tow trucks trying to pull cars out of the ditch, even a contract bus off the road. That route made a man outta me!

Now is the time to kick back and enjoy the Holiday!

tree decorating

My life has become a chaotic whirlwind of driving the bus in very bad weather, managing grand kids, letting my own grown children solve their own issues and finding a private moment to just be...

Besides trying to pay attention to the Joy of the season...I have not done any Christmas shopping other then a list I have on Amazon just waiting for my husband pay check to pay for this cart of items...

The other day I asked Dakota why he was such a good boy when his brothers seemed to not be able to do this he said, "my brain tells me to"...

Advice we could all learn from ...

Breakfast with Santa

Took the boys to see Santa. After some careful observation and high fives they warmed up to Santa for a picture...seem Santa knows grandma AND grandpa... *wink ---> he is an old trucker buddy of my husband!

did some crafts with some nice grandma's from the senior center, ran around the obstacle course at the YMCA and finished the day with some chocolate milk and pancakes...YUM!

December is here already!! Things are still going nice and smooth, with only a few minor bumps int he road. I'll be very busy driving for the next couple of weeks, but that's ok.

Lots of sports this time of year...

I am honored to once again take the guys to see Santa. We went last year and the event had games with prizes, pancakes and sausage, this year has crafts too...

Having little ones around makes me appreciate the excitement of the season all the more.

Now we need some snow!
