Outside my window...it is still and cold, Dan is gone to work and it's so early, not even the neighbor's rooster is crowing. The sky is clear and full of stars...so beautiful!
I am wearing...my nightgown as it is barely 5 am and I'm heading back to bed soon.
I am currently reading...Robinson Crusoe (I give up...it's just plain old boring!!) Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible, my Bible (wrapping up Proverbs again) and Hero Tales
From the kitchen... many tasty treats still linger, but it's time to wrap up the year end baking and get back to healthy (ish) eating...LOL
- Monday~ Sloppy joes with salad and veggie sticks
- Tuesday~Split pea soup with the leftover Christmas Ham, plus fresh bread
- Wednesday~Mac and Cheese with smoked sausage
- Thursday~Chicken and rice casserole (then munchies for New Year's Eve)
- Friday~Pizza with chips, veggies and ranch dip
- Saturday~Pat has been pushing for a return of freezer food night...we shall see
- Sunday~Roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli with cheese sauce
From the learning rooms...time to hit the books again! We took off all of Christmas week and most of the week before (which I did NOT plan for) so we need to get as much work done this week as we can so that we start 2010 on track. So today, the library for new book basket books, some serious ABeka time and much quiet reading. Rest of the week...ABeka in the AM, and My Father's World in the PM. Jodi and family are moving out this week, so it will be hit or miss with James, but we will do the best we can until a proper schedule can be worked out.
Around the house...it's still looking a lot like Christmas exploded all over the house...time to clean up the last of the boxes, find new homes for the new things and clean out some of the old. The boys need to be 'packing' as well since we will be in possession of two more bedrooms by the weekend and D and P are moving into 'the wing' and Derek is moving upstairs...they are quite excited! The pantry/Fridges/freezer must be cleaned out and taken stock of...they are all full, but I can never seem to find what I'm looking for...LOL!
One of my favorite things...Being able to find what I'm looking for...especially when it's my mind that I'm searching for...hee hee!

Outside my window...a clear sky twinkles with stars, a cool breeze blows and the world still sleeps.
I am thinking...that Christmas snuck right up on me this year...how did I let that happen??

Awww, Karen gets into the spirit of Christmas as she counts the days until she heads to Cali for the holidays.
Oh...look at the pretty ornament Tracy made me for my birthday...Oooo, Ahhhh!

Ty and Pat get into the spirit of "Peace on Earth" ..well, sorta!
I spent 3 happy days in this little hotel room scrapping, reading, sleeping in and spending time with Dan....more about that in another post

Patrick helped Titus write his name. Both the littles like to be up to the table while the big boys are doing school.
LET IT SNOW!!!
