Fun-Filled Friday

Had such a nice day today. This morning was the pancake breakfast w/ Santa at playschool. It was wonderful to see all the children in their handmade holiday sweatshirts. Saw lots of old friends. Can't believe how big some of these kids are getting! Margaret & I wore our matching Christmas shirts. Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum. Ella stayed w/ me for a while and we kept sneaking into the kitchen to steal some bacon. It was so good and it tasted even better because someone else cooked it.

Afterward we had our faculty lunch at Up the Creek and had so much fun. We need to do that more often! We exchanged Christmas presents. Shawn had my name and gave me a gift card to Barnes & Noble (which will definately be put to good use!) and she made me some beautiful note cards. I work with some very talented ladies. We just laughed and got stupidier as lunch went on. I wasn't even drinking.

Then, I came home to a mailbox FULL of Christmas cards! Yay! I especially love cards w/ photos! My favorite! Our friend Brian from high school sent a card today w/ his beautiful kids, rec'd a card from Andy & Laura out in Breckenridge w/ their 2 cute kids, our neighbors sent a card w/ Evvy & India's pic (KJ's gonna luv it!). Oh, and I also got a card today from my friend Barbara in NJ w/ pics of her 3 kids. I also got Heather's card (no pic!). Rec'd Lynn & Ted's card today, too (no pic!). I finished up my cards last night so now they're in the hands of the US Postal Service. Still need to wrap a few things and get them out in the mail.

KJ is carolling after school today w/ her scout troop at a nursing home and I'm sure T-bone's going to want me to drive her somewhere tonight. I hope she doesn't want to go anywhere near the mall, it was crazy at lunchtime today.

Love christmas card pictures! Really, is there any other card to get? I always try and put them in a scrap book, they've been dubbed in the house frosty friends. Rick will call me with a mail update during Christmas saying we got 5 frosty friends! lol. Anyway, my out of town cards are out but local ones are sitting on the coutner. go figure.

I do kind of the same thing w/ Christmas cards . . . I put them in a little photo album that sits out on the coffee table all year so I can look at them whenever I need a pick-me-up!
