It's Christmas Time

Christmas time, is one of my most favorite time's of the year! There is just something about all those blinking light's, Holiday movie's, & music. Getting to decorate festively and of course all those presents :)  Still, with all of those things, I think my very favorite part is going out every year with my family to pick out that perfect Christmas tree.
When I was a little girl we always had artificial tree's, but now that I am the "Mom", I don't know, I just loved the idea of a real tree in my home. So, last Saturday, we did just that! Unfortunately, the following day, when we were supposed to wake up and enjoy a day filled with hot cocoa, Christmas movies, and decorating, but my daughter woke up sick :(
After a trip to the Doctor, we learned she had Strep throat, ugh!
So, for the past few days my poor, empty, wonderful smelling tree, has been sitting in my home empty, waiting to be decorated. Hopefully, in another day or two, my oldest will be all well, and we can finally decorate our Christmas Tree.

On the Homeschooling front, my youngest has been my only student this week, since his sister is ill. I had hoped, to have my oldest do some review work, on her Multiplication tables, contractions, etc., but that will just have to wait until she is feeling better. With my son, we did manage to do some fun Holiday themed lessons this week. I printed out some Christmas themed printable flashcards, worksheets, and coloring pages.
I tell you what, having a printer at home, sure makes schooling at home some much easier and fun ;)

Until Next time...

I've never, in my whole life (I'm 36), had a real tree. :( Totally sad about that, but I have the worst allergies. My wee one has the same allergies. So, we make so with our fake one, lol.

At least we have a family tree, and we love decorating it and putting everything on it! :)

Hope your daughter feels better soon!
