Happy Birthday to the first love of my life :)

Ever since I was 12 years old (1973!)I have LOVED John Denver. In honor of his 64th birthday here's a little something I want to share!

Fa la la la la

Tim's 3rd grade concert was tonight. I hung around school until it was time for the performance. It really didn't seem wise to drive home just to turn around an hour later to go back to school. All in all I was at school for 12 hours today. The upside is that I did get some work done :)
The concert was just wonderful. One of the songs that they sang was Don Gato. I remember learning that song in elementary school a LONG time ago. It's always been one of my favorites :) It was all I could do not to run up to the stage to start singing with them. Those of you who know me know how hard it was to control myself LOL!
One little boy sang a solo part in the Beatles song Blackbird. He sang so beautifully it brought tears to my eyes. I was so proud of him. (I had him in kindergarten and just love him!).
After the concert we got pizza so there was no cooking for me. I still have two days of school to get through and then I can enjoy my vacation. The time can't go fast enough for me.

How I've spent my December

Why is it, knowing full well when December comes every year, I find myself working until the last minute making gifts for friends and family. This year it is knitting. Here's my recent stash of books I have been pulling my projects from. I am about 2 hours away from finishing what I thought was my last gift, and I have decided that I can squeeze just ONE MORE project in! Each year I promise myself I will spend my summer vacation getting ready so I don't put this pressure on myself. Last summer I promised to get all of my Christmas cards made. If you are on my list you should have received your lovely store bought card by now! :) :)

I'm getting ready to print out the pattern for the next item I am hoping to Thursday! Wish my luck.

It's now December and I still haven't blogged.

I am making it a resolution to be better about blogging. Sometimes I feel that I am so behind that I don't know where to begin.

So...I'll begin with this week!

What a stormy few days we have had. The weather was so bad on Thursday that school was closed 45 mins early to get the kids home quicker. Sadly, it took 35 mins to dismiss the kids 45 mins early! Go figure. By the time the high school and middle school kids were home the buses came back for the elementary kids. You'd think they would take the little guys home first. Today we woke up to snow but by late morning it was all rain! It has been raining all day. I hear it will freeze up tonight!

I am thrilled that there are only 5 days left of school before our Christmas vacation. I am looking forward to the time off!

Britt got pictures back of Mackenzie last week. Oh she is so adorable...(that's the grandma in me speaking!) Here, take a look for yourself.

I promise to be back soon!
