We Made Christmas Crack!

Hm. Wonder how many “strange” searches THAT will generate…

Anyway…my friend Lori mentioned Christmas Crack on FB the other day…which of course had me intrigued. A nice link to the recipe and a sample brought to the Kindergarten Holiday concert, and I’m hooked.

And what did I do? I took pictures of the product…not of the kids making the product. (Nice, Nance.)

Holiday Concerts

Burke and Maggie had their holiday concerts today! And they were super cute 🙂

They were, of course, at different times…but that meant I got to concentrate on one kid at a time – and worry about photographing only one kid at a time, so it was all good.

Here’s a sample of what I got to see today (video coming soon if I can get my act together).

Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

This picture was taken on Thanksgiving of 2003 (before kids!!). My sister would put the stuffed turkey on someone and then take a picture…we have a bunch taken with the turkey on sleeping people 😉

In honor of Halloween, I’m posting the costumes of year’s past.

I can’t believe my baby is 3 today!

Maybe There IS Something…

Burke and Maggie attended Bible School last week…where they learned new songs and sang them the whole week (at home too). I recognized some of it, and they were so excited about it…so I bought the CD of songs. I surprised them by playing it on the drive up to Vermont…they sang along to all the songs – it was really cute!

On the way to watch the Vermont Lake Monsters (Baseball) last night, I popped in the CD in again so they could sing to Nana and Grandpa.

Grandpa was driving my car – thank God – because a car going the opposite direction lost control and was careening directly at us. Grandpa was able to swerve and miss the other car – without hitting anything or rolling the car. (I’m not sure I would have handled things as well…which is why I’m so glad he was driving!!) The near-miss with Bible School songs blaring on the radio gave us all a slight pause.

On the way home, (after listening to other things for a bit), I popped the CD back in …and we were presented with a breathtaking sunset.

(Note the rain off to the right)

I think we’ll be listening to this CD more often…
