The Christmas decoration/craft I made this weekend. Aaron helped me out, but won't let me hang it yet. He doesn't get it, "believe in what?" he asks.
I had a nice 3-day weekend to recover from a very busy week at work, as we got Veteran's day off! Friday I slept in and had a leisurely breakfast before working on my scrapbook for awhile, finally putting in pictures from our NYC vacation (which means I'm now 8 months behind!). I had The View on in the background, and they were discussing the recent comments made by Pat Robertson regarding the Intelligent design debate and to my surprise, 2 of the 4 hosts on the show spoke in favor of allowing Intelligent Design to be taught in the schools (along with evolution). And they held their ground, even though the 2 older hosts tore into them for even suggesting that. It was nice to see a balanced view presented. My friend Becky and I went on a little shopping outing and ate lunch at Panera Bread, a great new breakfast/lunch place, similar to La Bou.
So get this, when we returned from Yerington 2 Sundays ago (Nov. 6) our funny strange neighbor across the street (who had her house completely and crazily decorated for Halloween) already had her Christmas decorations up! Lights, blow-up Santa and everything! Then, a few days ago, the neighbors directly across from her put up their decorations, lights, blow-up snoman and all! So much for Thanksgiving. I mean, I can't wait for Christmas and I've started on my cards and started thinking about my baking and such, but you have to draw the line somewhere. Although I remember my mom playing Christmas music before Halloween sometimes. I did get inspired though and made some Christmas decorations/crafts over the weekend.
Aaron got to go shooting with my dad and a couple guys from our church on Sunday. I taught 4s & 5s for the first time on Sunday. It was much easier than the 2s & 3s. What a difference, they actually listen! Though it felt foreign to be in a different room.
