Weekly Wrap Up 2015 Week 2

I though I'd do a Five on Friday Saturday oh well.

5 Random Observances from this week

1  It is cold.  Not coincidentally, we drank a lot of hot tea this week.

2. The smallest whale is the dwarf sperm whale measuring about 8 feet (or one Zippy and her hat).

3. It takes considerably longer to pack a teen than it takes to pack a child. After several hours and a trip to Meijer where I could not remember which brand of shampoo she prefers (thank God for technology so I could text her a picture and she could confirm the correct brand),  we got her on her way to Winter Retreat.

4. The Little Dude really wants to go bowling with his preschool class at the end of the month.  I had to put a special date on the calendar so he would stop asking every time we leave the house if we are going bowling.  I will take pictures, it will be interesting.

5. I turn 40 in one week.  I am determined to use all the free food coupons and deals I can get away with this week.

One Word 2015

It is the first day of the new year and a time for reflection and perhaps resolution.  This year I am not making any resolutions, but I am again choosing one word to dwell on this year. 

For the last 6 months (or longer if I am really honest about it) I have been a stressed out mess.  And every area of my life suffers from "messy buildup"  from my health to homeschool to house and more.  The word for the year 2015 is clean. More than just the removal of dirt, this word is about coming clean, eating clean, and working clean.

The Big Christmas Wrap Up

Here is my mostly wordless wrap up of the big day....

One of my favorite pre-Chrismas activities is setting up the model train with the Hubs. 

Since I was taking pictures, my little photo buff had to get in on the action too.

A family tradition.

He is eating, a gift unto itself. 
I thought about doing the big present unwrapping montage but this really sums it up better... Mom will you stop will all the flash photos.

Of course we had a great time with family, this is my favorite pic of the day my nephew the intense reindeer, hamming it up for the camera.

There was also ninja reindeer...

Merry Christmas to all...
