The kids and I went and saw The Best Christmas Pageant Ever done by the A.D. Players which was awesome! Go see it if you can!
I took Kate to see We Bought a Zoo last Saturday for a sneak preview-- it is a great movie! There were a few cuss words, disturbing artwork that is appropriate in content (the boy just lost his mom to cancer) and otherwise it is a pretty great movie! I wouldn't take a young child, but Kaitlin was fine seeing it and even Matt would have been.
Monday Kate had choir and her choir Christmas party but I had to take her guinea pig to the vet--- 124 dollars later... YEAH, we have meds for the little rodent. I really am done with pets- Have I said that enough but keep getting them? ARRRGGG.
Wednesday Emily and Matt had one of their last practices for the church Christmas musical-- it will be on the 18th and it is very cute!
We are packing and leaving early tomorrow morning!!! Whoo hoo. If only I could leave without packing! It is the bad part of a vacation! We are pretty much right on target of our budget but just barely grazing by with no extras... I thought we would have more to play with but we ended up buy clothes and shoes-- you know those needed items! But it's all good they would have been bought sooner or later, right? We are going to have so much fun and I am very excited!!!
Tonight is Kaitlin and Kirsten's choir performance---
she is in the back row on the left side (looking at the picture), 2nd girl from the boys
SHE did beautifully--- Kirsten did too, but I don't have pics of her on my camera---I was taking pics with Amy's!
and that about wraps up our week!
PS... did I mention we are leaving Saturday morning!!!!
