Days 351-355

Monday, December 14th - This year's bell ringing took place at Shopko (66th & O). We were prepared to ring outside in the cold, but Shopko was kind and let us do our ringing in between the two front doors. We rang for 1 1/2 hours, which was plenty for Grant.
Tuesday, December 15th - This is what you do with a foot of snow....pile it high and built a snow fort. Tyler and Madison like to see how deep they can get their fort before it caves in.
Wednesday, December 16th - We had a pizza party to discuss next year's baseball schedule. The first practice (indoors, of course) is on January 24th. I can't believe we are already thinking about outdoor sports. Go Blue Chips!
Thursday, December 17th - Our room volunteer, Grandma Pat, came today and showed the kids how to make candy canes out of beads and pipe cleaners. This was very nice of her and the kids loved it! We love Grandma Pat!
Friday, December 18th - This is one of my nativities that I dearly love. I posted it last year as one of my favorite Christmas decorations. It came from my 1988 trip to Mexico when I was in high school. I got a laugh when I saw a rubber lizard made it's way into the nativity this year. Can you spot him? Oh, the joys of having children!

I am going to be sad when "365" is over. I loved it!
It took me a bit, but I did find the lizard.:)
