Another week gone and another week closer to Christmas.
I have to say, DD1's drama play is over. This past weekend, we went to see the last night's performance and she was in the third leading role. She did fantastic. Her counterpart had lots of lines and forgot what to say in their scene a couple of times and she covered it perfectly. Bravo! I am so proud of her. She was sad it was the last night though. She had so much fun.
I have to give myself a pat on the back too. I had to do DD1's hairstyle in the 1940's era. After 52 hairpins and lots of hairspray...Voila! She looked fabulous. Her teacher was quite pleased with her do.
As for the other children of mine, things are going tickety boo. I mentioned to them, that although DD1 is taking up more of my attention, their turn will come for other things that come up in the future.
I am plunking along here. I did some major shovelling here this morning and I think that was a mistake. Sure enough, my shoulder is protesting that morning activity. Yet, I had to get the sidewalk shovelled. Why? There is a Mother that walks her children to school and walks past our house. I didn't want them falling, slipping or anything else infront of my house. So, the sidewalk was shovelled. She has five little ones. I think she runs a dayhome.
I guess I'm the one that has to make the cookies and tarts and cheesecake for Christmas day. My Mom is too busy taking care of my Dad and also her two brothers are coming out for a week for Christmas week.
Busy, busy busy.
Tonight, my children decorated the Christmas tree by themselves as I watched and pointed out an odd place here or there that could use an ornament. My son is so tall, he was a real help with the high stuff.
Well, I best be going and spend the rest of the night with my family.
Hope everyone is doing well.
