The holidays are over.
And though I love the holidays,
I'm ready to settle down.
It's cold outside.
We don't have much snow.
And it gets dark early.
It's time to snuggle in until Spring.
So, in order to keep busy, we've been:
(we have a large bookcase full of games,
so we have plenty to choose from.)
Some of the ones we've played recently are
Apples to Apples,
Rummikub and Rummy.
We love Ravensburger puzzles.
I bought one sometime last year.
And then, we got a Christmas one.
Not a lot of pieces, but fun.
We did it 3 times over Christmas.
Then the younger 3 girls each got one for Christmas.
We are currently working on Rosie's puzzle.
Watching old TV shows:
(we have Netflix and use it all the time.)
We've been watching:
Leave it to Beaver
(Alli and Abby enjoy this one.)
The Dick Van Dyke Show,
(Bob & I like this one.)
And since Bob's gone in the evenings,
I have started working my way through
some old 80's Tv series....
Watching old movies:
Two Saturdays ago, Bob and I watched
an old Clint Eastwood movie, Joe Kidd.
This past Saturday, Bob had a headache and
was resting, so I watched Three Coins in the Fountain.
I also watched an old Audrey Heburn movie,
And a few newer favorites:
And we've been doing more reading.
I'm currently working my way
Today, it's a full day back to schedule for everyone.
First day of classes for the new term for
both Nikki and Aaron.
Hopefully, a bit of homeschooling
for the younger 3.
Alli went to bed w/ an upset
stomach and a headache last night.
Rosie also went to bed w/ a headache.
Bob had one most of the day yesterday.
Nikki is fighting a head full and headache today.
She has a full day...out of the house from 7:45 am and
gone til about 10pm tonight.
I'm trying not to worry, but am
so fearful we are going to get the rotten flu that everyone
seems to have. It really seems to be a tough one.
Okay, time to get moving....
Only one pic for now...
