Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful, blessed Christmas. As you can see by the last couple of posts, we spent a lot of time around the house due to the weather. It has been a nice break, though. I have worked many hours on the quilt I plan to hang in the doorway of my classroom, but am not sure if I will finish in time or not as we are off to Hot Springs tomorrow! One of my husband's friends from high school invited us, he will be proposing. It should be a nice little get away before reality sets in again. School starts back on the 4th, and I begin college classes again on the 20th. I will be taking one and co-teaching one this semester.
Hubby and I are going to try an Irish pub tonight for date night. I hope it's good. It may not really even be Irish!
We have enough candy here from Christmas to last us until Halloween next, which is not good for my waistline.
Talk to you when we get back! Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, Part Two

Here we are on Christmas Day! Did you get everything you wanted? I did, and my family was happy, which is what I wish for the most!
This drift is in our neighbors yard...A. dug through and poked his head up!

Here he is before the digging commenced. We had a nice lunch with our neighbors, and a relaxing afternoon. Off to watch more movies.
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

We've already had a wonderful Christmas! We drove down to the Metroplex and had Christmas with my in-laws and their families.
Yesterday we were in San Antonio with my Mom and family down there and it was 75 degrees. We had a great visit and had a delicious "Christmas" dinner of homemade lasagna, stuffed mushrooms, and Milky Way cake. Dear Daughter got to make the rounds with us, so it was nice.

We got home just in time for this! Blizzard in Oklahoma. It started with sleet this morning, then turned to snow, with winds gusting around, it's crazy! The dogs don't want to go out. Hubby's mom was supposed to come up and dear daughter was supposed to come back, but it's just the three of us. We have a fire going, I quilted all day, we're going to open one present and watch movies.
I hope you all have a blessed Christmas. Stay safe and warm!

Last Day of School!

Last day of school before Christmas Break (well, they call it Winter Break, but I call it CHRISTmas break). Lots of assemblies and parties and goings on, the kids had a blast.
We are leaving to make the rounds, I'm so excited to see my mom and other family. We will be in the Ft. Worth area and San Antonio.
I hope you have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

Wordless Thursday!

I wonder if those are 3D glasses on their tree!?

Christmas Parties

We've been going to a lot of Christmas parties lately. "White Elephant" gift exchanges here in Oklahoma are called "Dirty Santa." It has nothing to do with being dirty. Today was our school Christmas party. It was Bring Your Own Snack, Drink, and Gift. You know those plastic Solo cups everyone uses for parties? Yeah, my principal filled hers up with whiskey and drank it. Straight!

I really hate it that I'm getting old enough that I have to floss after eating meat.

I love Christmas nougats that have the little Christmas trees in the middle. I eat all around the outside to leave the Christmas tree in the middle.

We have two more days of school and then we're off for Christmas activities. We leave to see my in-laws Saturday morning and then off to my Mommy's. We'll be back here for Christmas Eve and Day.

What are you getting for Christmas?

Interpreter's Test, Part Deux

If you remember, I took the interpreter's test previously. The last one was for the state of Oklahoma. I took another one today. It is called the Educational Interpreters Performance Assessment (EIPA). It was very different, and the people were very nice. I actually feel pretty good about it. I won't have my results for a few months at most, so we'll see!

I have returned from my last class of the semester completing my eighteenth hour. Whew! I also stayed and talked to my professor about getting some paperwork turned in, my timeline for graduation and my dissertation topic. She's on board with it all and I am pumped!

Christmas is sneaking up on us. I have most of my gifts purchased and wrapped, but not all. This weekend will be the huge baking weekend! Oh yeah!! Cookies for everyone.

We've been to two Christmas parties already and we'll have two more this next week. We'll be headed down Texas way to see the fam for Christmas, I'm so excited to see my Momma. We'll be back here for Christmas Day, first one in our new house!

I hope all is well with you.
