O.K. so I am way behind......nobody reads this anyway!

So Christmas was all we could have expected it to be and more. Full of great gifts, broken heaters and busted pipes. Did I mention broken heaters. BRRRR!!

Other than that life has been as usuall around here. We are taking a 2 week break from school! Which is probably more for me than the kids. Isnt it funny, when kids are in public school parents dread school breaks, but when you homeschool you live for them.

The stray dog that found us 2 months ago is going to the pound today...we gave him ample time to shape up and it hasnt happened. Luckily the kids are so tired of picking up his messes that they arent so torn up about his departure as I thought they would be. I think the dog has successfully eaten all the Christmas ornaments from 1/3 of the tree down. And anything else that is not put up. And apparently our floor is much moor appealing to use the bathroom on than the great outdoors.

Good By...Farewell!!

Wow I must be mellowing out!

As I was bathing the younger two boys last night, my older boys were down stairs decorating the tree. Now I did not know this was going on, and was told it was a surprise as I walked into the room.
Now for a little back ground on myself. Everything must be proportionat, symetrical, color cordinated and everything that stands for anal. So on any normal day this would have tiped me over the edge. I would have secretly gotten up in the middle of the night as I was awoken from my nightmare of the tree attacking me in my sleep, and rearranged it so that my equal libriam could come back into a normal range.
But instead I saw there cute little faces and saw how proud they were. I told them what a beautiful job they had done and I actually slept very well that night.
Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
