my "kid of character"

every month at Avery's school, a child gets chosen from each class as the "kid of character". This month was "responsibility", and Avery's name was chosen last week! Way to go Avery!



here is her laminated certificate...yup, big time award :)


and here she is with her other 1st grade students who also received the award!

lots on the mind...

it seems as if my brain is constantly thinking these days, and not getting much rest....it is exhausting...

we are in the very beginning of trying to sell our current home and move to another home here in town.

There are hurdles to be jumped and time lines that are sensitive.

There is the choice to do the "safe" thing and not be selfish with what we would like in a house, and then there is the house that is everything that we could want that is a tiny stretch.

Should we be responsible and just go with the house that will be fantastic for us, or go with the one that would be even more fantastic and give us more space to grow?

The one that we can swing, money wise, or the one that we might have to stretch to get into?

It's all so much to think about, and my brain is so very tired...

no time to blog because...

i'm up to my eyeballs in organizing projects

i'm spending all my free time painting

i'm trying to get control of my design waiting list and work as much as i can

i'm being a referee between my girls, who seem to love to not get along

......................................................................................................................................................

life is a bit busy right now, but rest assured i will be back with photos of the girls some day soon!

another Christmas and New Years!

Last Sunday we were surprised with a stop in by Aunt Holly and Uncle Jon on their long 17 hour drive back to their house. The girls were so happy to see Holly!


Then, on Tuesday, Nana Dianne and Bapa Craig came to our house for our Christmas with them! They had been in Mexico for Christmas this year.





The girls really loved their gifts from Nana and Bapa!
They are getting to be good at this gift opening thing...









Each girl received a birthstone barbie just for them! Here is Miss Opal (October)


and Miss Ruby (July)...


The girls loved these Mexican dresses that Nana and Bapa picked out for them from Cozumel.







Liv also had to show them her Dorothy outfit from Mommy and Daddy...



On Thursday, Hubby and I left for an overnight date in big town. Nana, Bapa and the girls had a lot of fun while we were away! They went to Alvin and the Chipmunks, played LOTS of games, and had a New Years Eve Party!



They brought in the New Year with a Culver's meal and Sprite in fancy glasses!







They also had fun blowers and confetti fire crackers!





Here is Liv the morning after...looks like she had a rough night, huh? :)



Nana and Bapa left later that afternoon after Hubby and I got back from our mini-vacation. It's no fun to say goodbye, but we'll see them in a couple weeks when we travel for Avery's allergy doctor appointment at the end of the month!

Here's to a fantastic New Year!!!
