  • it was a very busy, full week with wonderful memories made!
  • i was hoping to type out more details than this for posterity sake, but the random tidbits will have to do for now before the memories escape me entirely.
  • thankful my husband remembers every.last.detail. he's good to have around.
  • first time, and a new tradition, making salt dough ornaments (we used the 2 parts flour to 1 part salt & 1 part water combination for our dough, baked at 250 for 3 hours---due to thickness)
  • lots of quiet (read: no TV) time and a little girl all tuckered out by 8pm most nights.
  • she's got the crud again and we're hoping it doesn't settle into bronchitis or pneumonia again. she missed festivities last Christmas due to a 104.5 fever, let's hope it isn't a repeat.
  • slowly got my Christmas cards addressed by working on 2 or 3 bit by bit. all 21 are in the mail! before Christmas! (that's an accomplishment!)
  • were treated to free tickets, center court 2 rows from the floor seats, to the OSU Men's basketball game. so FABULOUS!
  • our little wiggly worm was more thrilled about appearing on the jumbotron.....not one, but FIVE times during the game. oh, and dancing with the cheerleaders! not a shy bone in her body.
  • ashlyn on the other hand was jazzed to find something that could earn her a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records after seeing the halftime show. i wish i could find this girl's act on youtube. it was PHENOMENAL!
  • rediscovered and visited the most unique bookstore i've ever seen.....Book Loft. 32 rooms packed full. 10 years was far to long between visits. it's a must visit if you're ever in Columbus.
  • had another appointment with the skin cancer doctor to evaluation ashlyn's condition.
  • played hangman while patiently waiting at said doctor
  • til she got bored, so she proclaimed she had an idea! "i'll draw a labtob (laptop) to play on!" her imagination makes me laugh.
  • discovered kidART by my girl hanging in the front window at school---oil crayons on transparency. she was beaming when she discovered it.
  • got the most heartfelt sentiment and ornament in the mail from a dear friend....but i'll share more about that in the next few days. it made me smile and cry a little too.
  • visited the life-sized nativity on Broad Street. so impressive and very moving. (ps. that link will take you to the details with a link to view it on youtube and a link to see still shots on Flickr.)
  • and now it's 2 days before Christmas and i haven't wrapped a single gift. not one.
  • we've been blessed beyond measure this holiday. so very blessed.

  3. You have some wonderful photos there.
    I made salt dough ornaments with my son when he was close to your daughters's age. (That was a long, long time agao lol).I still have a few of them. They hold up to the test of time.
