What's Going On In Your World?

It's sure been busy in mine!


As I think over the last few weeks, it can only be recapped with a handy, chronologically organized list, with photos interspersed. Or maybe a chronologically organized sampling of photos, with a list interspersed. I'll let you know at the end which one it is.


A Christmas Program


Gingerbread Houses


Hockey practice, in which Matt has to pull the boys off the ice before their toes freeze off at the -10^ outdoor hockey rink!


My company Christmas party


Matt's dad's family's Christmas gathering (that's an awful lot of apostrophes!)


More hockey.


Sleeping under the Christmas Tree


A day at mom & dad's for a Christmas Eve family gathering


Carolling


A fun, relaxing Christmas Day at home


Christmas with Matt's mom & Dennis
Bean bags and Lion King tickets - they were both kings!


The Hull family gathering


Skipped hockey for some snowmobiling fun


Church nursery


The big bedroom and closet clean-out


The boys play Legos at my work while I try to get some things done
The cleaning lady only finds one stray - great job, boys!

More hockey


A family New Year's Eve at Michael's, then the movies (Storyteller)


A fairly lazy New Year's Day, sleeping off the apple cider induced coma


More hockey


Housework and sledding - not necessarily in that order


A fun evening at Cali's wedding reception. Jane and Cali, you did a most fabulous job! It was great to see everyone.


More hockey


A meeting to present candidates to fill the open Prosecutor position in our county


Church and Sunday School


The great bathroom clean-out


First day of school - no, wait - SNOW DAY! Much fighting and whining from spoiled brats who are ready for Christmas break to be done already. Then I woke the boys up. A bit of Christmas undecorating, some more sledding, and an Animal Crossing marathon.


Finally, back to "normal". Work and school resume on schedule. And, you guessed it - more hockey.


So, what do you think, was it a list?


I'll tell you what I think - I had a real list. Of things I wanted to do during those 10 days off. Not many things got crossed off. Except for the fun. We definitely accomplished that one.
