Looks like tomorrow will be a day of taking down the Christmas decorations. Didn't I just put them up? Another Christmas... come and gone.

Hayes had his Christmas party at school today.
There was singing...
There was singing...
and decorating cookies.
Here he is with his teacher, Mrs. Black. I am so thankful we ended up in her class this year. She is absolutely amazing. Hayes is learning so much and really enjoys every bit of school. I only hope Embry and Ellie can sneak into her class too! :)
I received my first little letter from Hayes. Heart melting.
He makes me picture after picture after of things that I like, in my favorite colors. The other day he asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told him, "How about a pretty picture?" He left and came back and asked me what else I wanted. "I want my kids to be happy." Again. "Um, how about a necklace?" Finally after quite a few more times, he brought me a picture of a stocking filled with all of those things I said. Sweet boy.

Rough. Doesn't even begin to describe what my weekend would have been like if it weren't for my mom. With Kyle gone since Friday morning and not back until tonight, things would have been a bit tricky if she hadn't shown up.Thanks for rescuing me again and again.

bosc pear (head)
Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using two toothpicks, attach and stabalize the pear head to the melon.
Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks. Addition of a yellow and orange bell pepper, or even carrots would make it look even more colorful.
And there you have your turkey.
