  • This was the first day this week that I had to be up at a certain time, and it was hard. My alarm went off a few times before I finally did start getting out of bed. Now it if was hard for me to get out of bed, it was doubly hard for my kids to get out of bed this morning.
  • I had to go upstairs twice to wake everyone. It was like waking the dead. They were such sleepy kids. Thankfully, they did wake up in decent moods and were able to get dressed and eat before we headed to Bible study.
  • This was our last Bible study until after the first of the year. Campbell made fudge for all of their teachers yesterday. Keaton cut it, and I helped her put it into baggies. They were pretty pleased with their gift-and really, it was pretty good. Campbell was disappointed that there wasn't any fudge left for us to eat.
  • After Bible study, I hurried home for a few minutes and then left again. I had jury duty orientation today. I have never been on a jury before. It does seem like it will be interesting at least if I do get called to serve. 
  • While I was there, Robby took Graham and Campbell to their orthodontist appointment. Campbell did get a good report on brushing her teeth, but Graham not so much. They ran some errands and even stopped at Grannymom's house on the way home.
  • While they were gone, I worked on restocking the campers with all of our sheets and blankets and everything else that I had washed earlier in the week. There was also a little bit of cleaning, and tomorrow I have to restock paper products.
  • Soon it was time for us to head to church for the last Wednesday night before Christmas. The kids did some caroling, the big kids had free pizzas, and there was even cookie decorating. All of the kids seemed a bit wild tonight so I was a bit hoarse by the time that I made it home.
  • Once at home, some of us found suppers. I had hot chocolate as well and enjoyed it while watching our first Christmas movie in a few days.
