|Hallie and the planetarium.|
|Hallie wanted to dress like a star so she wore a $1.99 |
Christmas tree topper from Wal-Mart in her hair along
with a black and gold glittery shirt and tutu.
Oh, and it may have been 75+ degrees outside, but I still wore a Christmas shirt and listened to a Christmas CD in the car on the way to and from the market. I'm ready for the holidays!
3. I survived Parent Participation Week at Hallie's dance studio! Last year, despite going in at a decent level of physical fitness (I go to the gym almost every weekday and try to fit in long walks on both Saturdays and Sundays), I suffered the worst muscle pull - my hamstring - of my adult life. Turns out I shouldn't leap as a 30-something adult with the same enthusiasm I had as a 3rd-grade dancer... My goal was to make it through Hallie's five classes without an injury from which I would need to recover - mission accomplished!
|I even put my hair in a bun for ballet class! I later|
realized - after watching myself dance for hours - that
a bun does not complement my face shape. Oops!
5. Happiness Highlights
|Will's selling chocolate to raise money for his school orchestra, |
which means there is always chocolate (though each bar costs
me $2) available in my house when I need a little pick-me-up.
|Hallie learned how to create a Maypole at school! I remember |
learning to do the same thing in Girl Scouts 30-some years ago.
|They looked so comfy I almost didn't ask to join them...|
|Saw this at the Jingle Bell Market - I LOVE it!|
|"God is in My Jewelry Box". It's sure to be a hit.|
Thanks for the memories, Facebook.
|We have our first lemon!!!|
