Happy New Year!
Wow! The holidays just zoomed by. I cannot believe they are all over. The girls went back to school yesterday. Could that be right?!?! It already seems like they have been back in school a week! We are freezing here in Florida now. The high temps have not made it to 50 degrees the last two days. We got a freeze last night. It was 28 degrees when I got up this morning!! That is really cold for here. It will be interesting to see how my landscaping survives this cold. I can already tell I have lost some plants. It is supposed to be freezing a couple of more nights over the next several days. I now realize I take the Florida weather for granted. I really don't like having to wear a coat!
For New Years Eve, the girls and I drove over to my sister's. December 31st is her birthday so we headed over to visit and celebrate. We got there late Thursday evening after Jane got home from work. We celebrated with a late night snack of birthday cake. Friday, Jane worked so the five girls and I went shopping for birthday gifts for Jane-oh yeah, and for themselves. I had to keep reminding them that we weren't really there to get them something. Saturday, I went shopping again for Leah's birthday. I bought another cake and celebrated her birthday Saturday night with the cousins. We drove home late Saturday night.
Sunday was Leah's actual birthday. She turned eight. We were up and going again. It was my Sunday to teach Sunday School. Mike was still at his Dad's, so it was just me and the girls for church. Leah really tried to talk me into letting her stay home for her birthday, but with no luck. Mike was home when we got home from church. Later that afternoon, we took Leah to see the movie, Chipmunks The Squeakuel. They all three enjoyed that. Afterwards, Leah picked a restaurant and we ate dinner out. The girls wanted to go for ice cream afterwards, but it was just too chilly to do that.
Monday we finally got around to taking the Christmas decorations down. That took longer than I wanted it to, but it is done now, yay! Tuesday the girls went back to school and now we are back to the school routine. I am currently arguing back and forth with Allison about some science homework. Why did I think I wanted the girls back in school? When is spring break!?!? and where is the spring like weather!?!
