2013 Daily December 9--week 49

An absolutely crazy basketball week--Miss O had 4 games Monday/Tuesday/Thursday/tournament Saturday.  I am not sure how much I am liking this basketball thing in December of all the months to have 4 game in a week!  But we survived.  She only has 3 games this week and is done for the season.  Yeah!  But she made pep band for the high school and gets to attend all those to play.  That girl is busy.  We also had Miss A's regional choir and a very sick little boy.  Life is never dull.  Here is a look at our week.
Sundays are really our only day of rest it seems like.  Miss O loves to string popcorn for the Christmas tree Ben and I have our in bedroom.  She has done it the last few years.  Tonight she was getting it done and showing Mr J how to string popcorn too.

Basketball game #1.  Miss O had 4 points!  Way to go!  

The item on our Christmas countdown chain today was "Make a thank you card for someone."  So Miss E and Mr J were busy doing that this evening.  

Mr J got up about 3 a.m. and was not feeling good.  He threw up until late morning and then spent the rest of the day on the couch.  Not fun.  Thankfully he was feeling better that night, slept well and was back to school the next day.  Nothing brings your world to a halt like a sick kid.  So glad is he feeling better, and he didn't share :)

Basketball game #3 (we missed #2 because of other conflicts) My mom, Miss A, and Mr J were there to help cheer the team on.

Every year our Church in the big city puts on an amazing nativity display with hundreds of nativities.  It is so beautiful!  They have choirs and a live nativity outside.  We try to go every year because it just is the perfect start to the season--instant Christmas spirit.  Loved it again this year.  More pictures from that to share later this week. 

Basketball game #4/tournament--Listening to the coach.  Miss O is #22 sitting on the left.

And the same day Miss O had her basketball tournament Miss A had her regional choir concert.  Of course they were 2 hours away from each other, so we left the basketball tournament and made it just in time for the concert.  It was very good.  Never a dull moment :)

Thanks for visiting and join me for my Daily December postings this month.
Tomorrow I am going to post our new family pictures :)

I am linking up with The Mom Creative.


  1. So many activities going on for you this week. Looks fun though. I used to love stringing popcorn but have not done it in ages. May have to give it a try again with my boys. Poor little guy being sick. Thankfully he bounced back quickly. Very neat to see all those nativity displays for the season. I bet it's a really special event.

  2. What a busy week! Thank you for sharing.
