Catching up soon - New computer

I have not finished a post in months.  I have been dealing with a very old computer.  Actually it isn't that old just very used.  It was a laptop that must be plugged in to work.  I have seen that most of this computer is worn out.  So as December came and I was needed to use the computer for family purposes the same computer became more and more difficult to use.  I started looking at other options.  The new windows system meant that any new computer PC or laptop would have a learning curve.  Since I have to learn a new system my kiddos encouraged me to try Apple and IOS system.  I had decided on a laptop but walked away with a desk top.  My life is in flux, I guess.  So far (one week later) love it but am still learning. 
 
I have spent some time catching up on episodes of our favorite tv shows.  I love being able to use the big desk top screen for that.  The kids have challenged me to believe that it can do more than that.  I plan to continue to learn and use the new Apple more and more.  Thank you Jason for letting me invest in this computer.  I promise to catch up now, or at least get started.

Neighborhood Santa

It is our tradition to visit with Santa in our neighborhood each year.  We have been doing this since the year we moved here.  The older kids try their hardest to join us.  This year we had the entire clan.  The funny thing is that we always overwhelm poor Santa with so many of us.




 The little ones all get this little bag of treats.
 We all enjoy the donuts.


My crazy kids!

Not Again

Yes Again. Another Anaphylactic reaction.  Another Epi Pen use (Sugar gave it to herself this time). Another hospital visit.  Another healthy result. Another sibling by her side to help her carry this cross (Thank you Possible.)
 




YES AGAIN I thank God for my Sugar and her health and that the epi pen worked. 

Ice Skating with Friends

 My big kids really do know how to make the most out of life.  They know how to take a few minutes out of their busy lives and just enjoy things with friends.  We can all take a lesson from them on that.

Hard to Get Picture

Adorable - Beautiful
It is getting harder and harder to get these two to look at me for a picture of them together. They are so grown up and so independent now.

MNO Christmas Bash

 
 



Our homeschool support group has a group of moms that meet each week for our Mom's Night Out.  We have grown so close as friends.  We are as different as night and day but are the best of friends.  When the Holidays come around we like to party and pull out the good china and cook for each
other.  Our Christmas party is always a great time and this year was no exception.  Thanks to all the moms that came together to celebrate with us.

CCC Christmas Cookie Party

Yummy look at the food thanks to M family for hosting and feeding us!


The first half of the school year finally came to a close.  The  Catholic Coffee Club group was ready for a party.


 After lunch, cookie exchange and the formal pictures this crew headed outside to play on the trampoline. 

 This is a crazy group of teens that I feel very blessed to be a part of their lives.  Merry Christmas guys and thanks for helping Possible and I grow closer to Christ.
