December 2011 Recap

January 11, 2012 02:50 by ehouston

I will make this one short and sweet.  Since this past December consisted more of eating than anything else, I had very few projects to share.  We shopped, ate, decorated, ate, watched fun holiday movies, ate, visited friends, ate, entertained relatives, ate and then we even ate some more.  Sometimes we actually ate while doing those things too!  Impressed?  I’m sure you are beginning to see the cycle of the downfall.  Actually, with the Little Guy home 24/7 for two weeks and The Mister around a lot more for a little over three, I was hard-pressed to get much of anything done.  And, since they filled the gaps between their work and fun with questions to mommy regarding what will be served at the next feeding time I sort of gave up on any extracurricular crafty activities.  Ah, boys, gotta love ‘em!

But, here are the couple of little projects I did manage to sneak in during the month of December 2011:

WoodenTrainGarland-Thomas

A train-themed Christmas tree for the Little Guy’s room, complete with a handmade train garland.

And, who could forget the funny reindeer Christmas greetings that we constructed for my Little Man’s classmates?

Although this month feels like it is already flying by, I hope to accomplish at least three projects along the way.  We will see how things go, right?

Wish me luck!

Classmate Gifts Down…

December 12, 2011 07:40 by ehouston

Two teacher gifts to go!  I have been procrastinating getting to the last couple of items on my “room-mom” to-do list for our teacher gifts.  This morning I managed to tackle one and hopefully after carpool tomorrow I will knock out the second.  Just before lunchtime today we put these fun treats together for Liam’s classmates.

Yes, their noses really do ring-a-ling!

Once they are finished drying I plan to add a red ribbon bow holding a holly leaf shaped note with, “Merry Christmas, From: Liam”.  He was super excited about how these were coming together and did quite a nice job jabbing the jingle bell noses into the blobs of glue.  Ever the good little helper!

I can’t believe that this is my Little Guy’s last week of preschool until after the beginning of the year.  I cried my eyes out at losing him to his sweet teachers for a few hours each week, but now I have become spoiled by that “extra” errand and project time. 

I hope I make it ‘til January!
