Yesterday was a busy day for us. I was able to leave work early to attend a Kindergarten performance at Damien’s school. The boys and girls each took turns in groups of 2-4 to sing nursery rhymes. The other two kids in Damien’s group couldn’t make it and he had a little solo! I was so proud of him! <3 He walked right out there and began so quickly that I almost didn’t hit record in time!
Last night was Scott’s squadron holiday party. It was exciting because Scott helped plan and put it together. It was on a Spirit of Norfolk ship that cruised around for a few hours. I only took one pic. Everything went well.
And lastly, I have to mention our tree growing project. We bought three of those $1 Spruce/Christmas tree sets so we could each grow our own Christmas trees. I can’t remember how long ago we started, but this picture is from yesterday, I think. If you’re wondering why Scott’s pot is empty it’s because a few days into starting, Katrina knocked his pot off the window sill. Scott is sad, but he will just take one of my many awesome Spruce trees when they get a little bigger. Damien has a couple seeds sprouting too, but it’s still the early stages.
Last Saturday we took Damien bowling for the first time. The Langley Bowling Alley had cosmic bowling with a appearance from Santa! Damien really liked it so we can add that to the list of indoor activities we can do together.
Damien and I were so excited to decorate the house for Christmas. I like to get it done right away so I have more time to enjoy it. We decided on a small tree to save space. Someday we’ll have a place big enough for a HUGE tree!
The day after Thanksgiving, we got together with Robbie, Naomi, and Sarah to visit the Bluebird Gap Farm in Hampton because the weather was so awesome. And now we know a great place to get hot dogs–yum!
