Other than that, we are just getting ready for Christmas and some much needed time off! I work half a day tomorrow then I am off until January 2nd! The kids have Christmas parties at school the next two days and Friday Katherine has half a day of school and it's Polar Express Day where she gets to wear her pj's. We are hosting Christmas at our house this year, so lots to get ready for that! OH AND MOST IMPORTANT, this Saturday we are baking TONS of cookies to take up to Texas Children's Hospital for those families spending the holidays in the hospital. Our elf has been up to some silly things so far this year! The kids love waking up to see what Herald got into, I am sadden to think one year that they won't have all the "magic" of Santa and the elves... but we are trying to instill into them now the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of our saviour, helping others, family time, and the seasoning of giving in all sense.
Hope everyone who is reading has a VERY Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New Year!
