I don't have much to tell you about today, but I did want to post some iPhotos so I remember what happened in November that I didn't already mention.
November was the month of the Film Festival at Henry's school. Henry is a co-leader of the film club and they organized submissions, had two viewings and an award ceremony. I missed the high school showing but managed to make it into Brookline for the middle school's turn. The movies were all quite good - and it was fun to watch Henry give a speech and as a added bonus, I got to see Josie there. win-win-win. And if anyone asks, that is not Henry in the above photo. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
It's properly winter now and today it even snowed. Pippa Middleton has become taken to sleeping Princess and The Pea-style.
And so would I, if I could get away with it.
I took this photo of a photo at Gordy's parent's house on Thanksgiving. Look how sweet young Henry and Georgia looked five years ago:
Josie had a friend from our town over to play and I took them to a trampoline park to burn off some energy. Here is a photo I took while they listened to the rules of the facility.
I gave Gordy an Amazon Echo for his birthday and it's been fantastic. Last night, we asked Alexa to play some Dolly Parton songs ( I cannot for the life of me remember why Dolly Parton came up - perhaps the fires in Gatlinburg?) and we had an impromptu dance party to Jolene and 9to5.
We have three current big projects - the first is to get through the next two weeks of endless appointments and end-of-the-calendar year functions/concerts. The second is finish the holiday prep such as cards, decorating, meal planning and do a little bit of redecorating (primarily buying a larger bed for Josie's room and all the sheet, blanket purchasing that requires). The last task is to get Henry his driver's license which involves a lot of Dealing With the driver's ed company, a lot of swearing under my breath at the driver's ed company and driving around the state with the 16 year old.
And if that sounds fun to you...
Ahh. Isn't he cute.
