My boys and their new friend. I have NEVER seen a camel up close and personal like that before. Kristina and I were too chicken to get that close! We saw a donkey, llama, sheep, and baby goats as well! Then we went inside the gates to Bethlehem..and wow we had to pay our taxes, then we had a family picture. After that we enjoyed some goodies and went to the center of town. We visited the carpentry shop, the baker shop, the um...so many other places I can't remember. When we were done we saw baby Jesus asleep in the hay. (Actually asleep in his mother's arms) It was a live nativity scene..made it really realistic. God gave his son, his only son for us to live in eternity!!
The rest of the week was filled with school and going outside for the kids. For me it was appointment making and research on both of my children's needs. What was supposed to be the high-lite of my week was not so. Okay, if you have read my blog..every four months I get my teeth cleaned. It is my one treat for myself. A spa like experience..thanks Margie!!! Love you!! This week I brought my children with. Jovan freaked out.. so I had to calm him down, and Kristina wanted it to be her turn. Anyway, once I got them settled in the corner with their toys I tried to settle down and enjoy it. I told them to not talk to mommy, and they listened!!! They were SO good!!! I was so proud of them!!
Anymore high-lites? My brain can't think? This weekend was my nephew's hockey tournament. We went to one game. Jovan was with his Auntie ALL day..ten hours!!! They were at the arena most of the day. Besides lunch with everybody (but Dan and Kristina) and a trip to Walmart he was at the arena. And he had a blast!!!!!!
Now, I remember. (I am a little distracted watching the Vikings football game) Dan and Kristina went to the Princess movie. The Princess and the Frog. They loved it. She was stunned at the size of the "tv". I was with my family at lunch..they did not see my nephew entire game. It was a good day..then we picked up my two and a half year old nephew to spend the night and go to church with us. The kids have a lot of fun together..
So, now it is the start of a new week. Pizza tonight..don't know where?...
