Biking Weather

The computer said it was 32 degrees in Aurora so Mike put on all his cold weather gear and went for a ride.

12:01 Black Friday

I made an appearance at my local Wal-Mart at midnight. It was so crowded, luckily I steered Mike all the way around the store to the 20 items or fewer lanes (we didn't have more than 20) and there were only three people ahead of us. Usually buying stuff for real cheap gives me a thrill but I didn't feel well so I just wanted to get out of there. That was all the shopping I could stomach this year. (Quite literally.)

Megan's desk

Megan was getting the props together for the middle school play.

Kindergarten Feast

Jon went to the Kindergarten and was Mary's VIP.
Kenny only liked the candy that was on the table.

Sinusoidal Functions

Jon had a project for Trig. due Monday. I'd love to tell you about all the math, but I cannot. The cool part is the poster. The glittered sun with the Earth that rotates around the sun (with a clock motor.) Jon texted and said that, "She loved it. It was the first moving one ever." His teacher was going to put it up high in a place of honor, so no one will mess with it. Hooray.


The problem: Kenny takes the dvd's out of the player and scratches them.

Solution: A removable panel in front of the player, with a hole for the infrared for the remote. So far he hasn't figured out how to get to it.

Beauty and the Beast matinee

Mary and Bell after the show. She gushed about Belle's dress all weekend.
Danny Berg as La Fou- he was the Pa in Mike
and my family on Trek this summer. He was awesome.
Kelly still has a big crush on him- probably all the
girls at Grandview High School do too.

Mike took Adam and Mary to the Saturday afternoon performance. Jon said that he could tell that the audience had more children because they laughed at different things than the other crowds. Mary loved the show, Adam claimed he didn't like any of it. (He did bring home a lot of confetti for someone who didn't like anything.)

In the pit

Jonathan played in the orchestra for the high school play Beauty and the Beast. It was so cool to hear a live "sound track" for the play. Tonight was opening night, he has three more shows. It was really worth all the hard work.

Getting ready for the feast

Nana made Mary Jane a pilgrim outfit for the kindergarten Thanksgiving feast. The cuffs and "bib" are snapped on so she can wear the black dress with a belt to church! She could have worn it to the modest fashion show last night- not even an ankle showing.

Modest is Hottest

Megan was in a YW fashion show at Mutual tonight. Mary and Kelly came to learn what to wear. I love the outfit that Meg's wearing, I found it at Goodwill for 3 dollars.

I wondered how all the game pieces kept falling out of the closet.

Music men

Piano man
Kenny wants to play the flute so Megan put the mouth piece to his mouth. He then spit a "Lugey" into the hole. Megan squealed and ran it to the kitchen sink. Not a flute boy.
Patrick tried, did not spit, but could not get it to play- stick to the trombone.

He's not the Biggest Loser

I put in Kenny's favorite Buzz LightYear cartoon in the player, he then gets really upset. I lift him up to the dvd's and say, "What do you want to watch?" He grabs my 20 minute Jillian work out video. I put it in thinking he'll cry for Buzz. Nope, he just pulls out the weights and the mats. He's my exercise inspiration.

He made the mess

He's learned: if you spill, clean it up. Unfortunately, before he finished, he hit Mary Jane with the broom.
