Monday ~ Autumn was so excited this morning when we went outside to get in the car to go to school. There was a slight skiff of snow on the flowerbeds & roofs of the houses. I tell her all the time to wear a coat b/c it’s cold, but she doesn’t like how bulky it is when she’s in her car seat.
Tuesday (same as the link for Monday) ~ Autumn always likes to take my phone so she can find songs to play for us to dance to. She always gets to be the girl & I’m always the boy. She has me spin her & dip her. Since it’s the holidays Mom had these reindeer headbands & Autumn wanted to wear them while we danced.
Wednesday ~ Happy 12/12/12 at 12:12. Today was a special day b/c it’s 12/12/12 and that won’t happen for another one hundred years. Some people celebrated the day by eating things that come in dozens like eggs or doughnuts. I was at work so I just took a pic of my computer calendar/clock.
Thursday ~ Sis. Wright made these gingerbread trains for her scouts & made an extra one for Mom to do w/ Autumn! She is so incredibly thoughtful. Mom didn’t want to do it, so I helped Autumn. It was fun, but no something I would go out & do on my own. I think it’s a waste of money & good candy.
Friday ~ Tonight was our ward Christmas party. The Elders Quorum was in charge & they did a great job. At the end, Santa came to visit. I love that Santa was looking at Autumn’s sparkly shoes w/ her. When she got off the stage I asked what she told Santa she wanted for Christmas. Without skipping a beat she said, “a computer.” I told her that is NOT going to happen!
Saturday ~ Tonight was the big annual white elephant party at the Berrett’s. I put together this big 16x20 collage of the past 2 years of Britt & Virginia. She’s worn the same Christmas sweater all 3 years! I love the fun & friendly banter those 2 have.
Sunday ~ Today was Mom & Dad’s big ward party. They were going to do chips & sandwiches for the meal & Mom said NO WAY! She did ham, yum yum potatoes, chips, rolls, & veggies. So, she & I made TWELVE pans of potatoes! Dad was joking around & got Autumn to salute Mimi whenever she told Dad & Autumn to do something like take stuff out to the truck. The party ended up being great, but it was so stressful & A LOT of work! Someone brought the most amazing cheesecake w/ pecans & caramel sauce, so that made the whole stress worth it. I hope Mom’s not in charge of the food next year!
I am SO TORN over what to do for my Project Life core kit for this year. I planned on buying the Olive edition, but then when Becky shared all those new kits on Facebook, I wanted to use one of those instead, b/c I’m honestly not 100% in love w/ the Olive edition, but I preferred it over the Seafoam edition. However, I don’t want to wait until May to get one of the new core kits b/c the year’s almost 1/2 over by that point. And, I can’t switch 1/2 way through the year if I do end up getting one of the new core kits b/c that doesn’t jive w/ my OCD of having things match and be the same. So, I guess I’ll just have to stick w/ the Olive kit and use the others for next year or go back and do years past. What are y’all doing?

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY Y’ALL!!!
