Thanksgiving 2014

I love cooking with my boys. It really helps and takes the stress off of me during the holidays. Jaedan prepared a sweet potatoe pie and Malik made dinner rolls.

My oldest started working this year and of course they would schedule him to work on Thanksgiving. So in order to have the whole family together we had to eat early. By prepping some things ahead of time really helped me get things done in time. .

Of course sometimes things don't always go as planned. I was preparing the macaroni and cheese when I realized I didn't have any pasta. My husband rescued me by running out and getting some.

In thee end dinner was great, and Ben got to work on time. We spent the day being couch potatoes and watching football and movies. I am very thankful for my family and the times we share together.

Michael's $2 Grab Bag Haul

Today I ran into Michael's Arts and Crafts to get a circle punch. I remembered that one of my Facebook friends posted about $2 Grab Bags boxes. Low and behold when I came into the store there was a stack of these boxes right in front of me. The three boxes I grabbed was filled to the brim with Christmas merchandise. These items will come in handy because we like to have holiday parties.

Busy Month of December

We have had a really fun and busy month. We had our first big snow storm of the year. The boys were really excited to see all the white stuff, me not so much. They bundled up and went snow sledding and had a few snow ball fights.
We also had another homeschooling family join us in making holiday treats. We baked homemade sugar cookies and decorated them. The kids made a big mess and had a lot of fun.
They also made caramel wrapped pretzels dipped in chocolate.
The boys and I helped make ornaments for a local nursing home Christmas tree after speech class this month.
Jaedan and Malik read lots of Christmas themed books. These two books were our favorite books to read.
We attended our coops christmas concert and art show. Jaedan made this wonderful paper mâché dog.
My highschooler really applied himself this semester and achieved grades worthy of kisses and hugs from his mommy. My other two students did an awesome job in their studies.
God really shined on us this year and we are truly greatful to have His favor in our lives.
I made Christmas cards for the first time this year. I like the way most of them turned out.
This guy right here is the love of my life. I could not do what I do without my husbands support.
Well I hope everyone is having a wonderful month. We really accomplished a lot this semester in our homeschool. I look forward to what next semester and year has in store for us.
