What's On Our Calendar...

So... I'm two days late getting this post up because Thanksgiving kicked my butt. Truly. I've been sick since 5 p.m. on Thursday. It started with a runny nose & scratchy throat then escalated to full on vomiting yesterday, resulting in my calling in sick the day after break. Not pleasant. Despite the sickness, I really enjoyed my time with family & can't wait to be at home with everyone again for Christmas.  

Now onto December, which is going to be a jam-packed month of awesomeness for us! Let's take a look at what's on the calendar... 
  • Tonight is my first game of the season! With my recent promotion to the JV team, I get to have my games in the big gym (versus the hole in the wall where Freshman play) & I'm really looking forward to it. 
  • This weekend, we're taking Ella to see Santa! Last year was pretty disastrous, but I'm optimistic because she seems pretty interested in the whole Santa thing. She's even been telling everyone, "Santa come down chimney ho ho ho." #fingerscrossed We haven't quite decided if we're going to the mall or if we'll go to Holidays at the Market again, but either way I'm sure she'll love it.

  • Next weekend is a pretty big deal. My sister is getting married! The whole family is in the wedding - I'm the MOH, Eric is a groomsman, & Ella is the flower girl. It's a destination wedding too, so we'll be at a ski lodge from Friday to Sunday, with all of my crazy extended family. I can't wait !

    At the same time... I'm really quite nervous about Ella getting down the aisle. I'm afraid she'll freeze & want my dad to carry her. I don't want to ruin my sister's walk down the aisle, so I've been practicing with Ella every night. We talk about it all the time. "Go after mommy, walk down the aisle, carry your flowers, go sit with Grammy." Seriously, I'm drilling it into her head.
  • Once we get my sister on a plane to Aruba, I only have a week left of school! I am planning a fun party for my class that day & I have our team party that night too, so even though Britt will be on a white sandy beach, I'll still be having a good time! 
  • On the 20th, we're headed home to make Christmas cookies with my mom & grandma. It's pretty late for us, but with the wedding, we didn't have a lot of other options. Everyone is supposed to bring ingredients for two cookies - right now I'm leaning towards Oreo Balls & Monster cookies - two of my absolute favorites.

  • And then we finish out the month with three family Christmas celebrations - one at each grandparents' house!
