Well, this month flew by at the speed of light. But it was awesome.
We went to a place called Main Street Bethlehem. You walk through the town and get to talk to a lot of different people about the Messiah's birth. It was a very long line to get in, but it was totally worth it! I could have spent the whole night there, but my family did have to go home. ;)
I spent a week of this month sick. My sister made me a nest on the floor with her mattress and lots of snuggles and I just played Nancy Drew games.

IT SNOWED!!! I was so excited!!! =D For the first time in ten years we got snow and I spent all day out in it. I also ate way more snow ice cream then was good for me and ate a lot of just plain snow. On new years eve we also got a bit of snow, but none of it stuck.
I tried my hand at making bath fizzys. I love spearmint, so I decided to put some in there, but I forgot spearmint oil gives me a headache, so I had one for the rest of the process. Lesson learned, think through oils before you use them. But the fizzy's turned out well. =D

I started writing a Christmas short story, but I never got around to finishing it. ;P
I spent some time cleaning the extraneous books off my to-read list. I now feel much better about tackling the pile now. But lets be honest, I'll probably just end up reading random books I pick up for most of the year. I am really bad about actually reading my to-read books.

My family celebrated Christmas a bit early because that's when we could all get off work. So we actually ended up opening our presents one night, then having a chill day the next where we completely unplugged. Then the next day we cleaned up our decorations, and we went to a Christmas Eve service.
I completely cleaned out my room. It took me two full days, but I managed to get rid of a good amount of stuff so now I have a bit more breathing room.
I got to make cookies with a little girls. This was a unique experience because most of what she wanted to do was dig her hands in the flour, but it was fun!
