Isabel and I started our month with volunteer work for the toy drive at church.  Isabel had fun helping me organize and check out all the toys families would be able to give to their kids for Christmas.  She and I also spent an afternoon shopping for daddy’s Christmas gift.  She had finally decided what he needed and we were on the go to find it.  That same weekend we had our kids Christmas party for work, Isabel got to see Santa, decorate cookies, face painting, making crafts and then Build A Bear was there to make Rudolph and Clarice.  She made Clarice since they are both girls.  The following week we did our Annual Ogleby trip to have breakfast with Santa and enjoy the beautiful lights.  It was a nice weekend and Isabel even joined me in the Spa to get her nails painted.  I got together with my girls and we had a nice meal at Bone Fish Grill and a wonderful night to catch up on everyone’s adventures since our last gathering.  Next weekend was about celebrating Christmas with family and friends.  We took a meal and went north to celebrate with Grandma, Grandpa, and Great Grandma for the day and it was a nice time, and we were able to relax and enjoy the time.  Next day we got together with Shana and kids for Christmas celebration which unlike the day before was filled with fun and craziness.  Since the kids were all excited to run and play around for the day.  Then the kids had our waiter in confusion as they asked for Clarice pancakes instead of Rudolph that was currently on the menu.  So I had to explain how to make it work so everyone was happy.  Then we had a nice relaxing Christmas at home which was joyful and relaxing.  Isabel took her time opening gifts throughout the day so she could play with items as they were open.  I even got a new toy that I am excited about using once I get some fresh product again.  A pressure canner to go along with my water bathing canning I am currently doing.  This will add so much more to my pantry.  On New Year we went out for dinner and just had our normal bedtimes so we could be ready for the New Year and Isabel’s party that was coming up.

God Bless,
