Day 68

HOORAY Uncle Tim is coming today!! He arrives while A is in school and probably won't be here until after A leaves for gymnastics. A is so excited that he wanted the aerobed set up tonight so he can check to make sure it was perfect and switch the his bedding to it and put fresh linens on his bed for Uncle Tim.

Day 67

Last night we did some more christmas shopping. I also finally made the chocolate chip cookies and I also wrapped most of the presents.  When A was trying to pick out his gifts for our christmas game I had to keep reminding him that he isn't picking out gifts for himself, he is picking out gifts that other people would want.  He would say okay then go find another toy, ugh.

Day 66

Last night on the way home from gymnastics practice A told me something very funny.  Out of no where he told me Uncle T smells VERY good and he likes the way Uncle T smells. When I asked about Uncle M he said, he smells different. HAHAHA.  A has been asking about deodorant for a while now and I keep assuring him that he doesn't need it yet that he is just getting sweaty, not stinky.  Well, Santa told me that he was going to put some deodorant in A's stocking for him this year so I guess we will be getting some of the stuff Uncle T uses. i had planned on getting an unscented one but if he loves the smell why not?

Day 64

You can kinda see how chapped A's lips are. He licks them all day long until they practically hurt me! Blistex medicated is bought by the truck load this time of year and Santa always puts some in his stocking.

Day 63

We had some very strange weather this weekend. After freezing us out last week this weekend had highs in the mid 40's and it poured all day yesterday.  I am glad we don't live in the upper midwest were they got all that snow but I am sure A would have loved it!  This week we are back to freezing cold and tomorrow's high is supposed to something just evil around 20 degrees.  Uncle M arrived from florida on friday just before A got off the bus so he was very excited. Uncle T will be arriving next monday.

Day 60

Wow, day 60? We are already one third of the way through the school year!  A thinks he did very good on his math test yesterday.  He was also able to go to the library and pick up his reserved books because he finally returned the other ones he had.

Day 59

Last night A was attempting to study for his math test today, that is until wheel of fortune came on.  He has never watched the show but suddenly he couldn't take his eyes off the TV. The apple has not fallen far from the tree...

Day 58

What a great weekend.  We got some Christmas shopping done and A got a much needed haircut.  His glasses will be in tuesday or wednesday.  His old ones were very crooked so we went and had them fixed. When I handed the man at Pearle Vision his old glasses to get the lenses out he actually laughed out loud at the sight of them. At least someone found it funny.

What's that white stuff behind him?  Since Thanksgiving we have been having just flurries. Today is also just flurries but this is the first time it has been cold enough for it to stick.

Day 57

I swear I posted something today no idea why it didn't show up.

Last night A stepped on his glasses just right to break them in half. Good thing we still have his old glasses to get him through.  I called pearle vision today and can you believe that it's not a manufactures defect haha.  I hope the new frames come in soon.

Day 56

Today A gets to do his holiday shopping at school. The gifts range in price from $1 to $6 so you can imagine what the choices are.  He enjoys it and it allows him to pick out gifts for everyone that are surprises.
