December Highlights

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.

This is Patches, a Christmas present. <3

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

This is Patches again with a blanket we got for Christmas.

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.  

Flowers in the store.

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!

      Aww, thank you, Faith! Do you like your state capitol?

  3. You have a little stuffed dog!? He's cute. I collect stuffed dogs. And all but two have names that start with "P" including "Patches." He was my first dog. :) My nephews love my dogs and play with them almost every time they come over.

    I enjoy reading reviews of my friends' months even if I'm not good at writing any myself. :P And so many lovely books to read.:)
