Humph. So the only pictures I have to post for you guys tonight are from mom's sweet Polar Express Party on Thursday. She teaches third grade and the whole school celebrated. I would say our classroom rocked the whole thing. But I'm not biased or anything. Here we are in our pajamas. I also wore these pajamas to the drug store to print pictures of each child (that I took looking stinking aaadorable in a Santa hat in front of the Christmas tree) for their parents' gifts. That wasn't awkward at all. Especially the girl who stopped me to say...after giving me two up-down stares..."I like............your hat." Righto lady. Jsyk this is totally my normal getup and I'm here every thursday thankyaverymuch. Oh, and mom is going to kill me for posting this picture with her eyes closed but it's all I've got so I'm taking that risk.
Mommy and cute sister in their PJ best for the par-tay.
My station was s'mores. And it totally ruled. These kids seriously know what they are talking about when it comes to roasted marshmallows. Ok, sugar in general. The experience made me want to go campin for real.
Do you not just want to hug them to pieces?
I took a little blog break to get me through my exams without my head exploding. Victorious! Head is still intact. In other news, I finished finals. They stunk major. I'm almost finished with my Christmas shopping minus one more running-around day. My doggy ran away but we found him. (three days later after I had a heart attack) I will probably sleep on the couch again tonight for the 20th time this week (don't check my math on that) because my room currently looks like and episode of hoarders and I would have a mild anxiety attack if I tried to get some shut eye in there. I have been surviving for the past week plus on a diet of cookies and chocolate. FYI, that is a major shock to the body and is largely not recommended although I'm sure I've done Santa proud. I'm trying to wean myself off of sugar and back onto whole grains and vegetables so I can function like a normal human being. For some strange reason I just felt completely compelled to post this tonight. Even though I babysat and adorable munchkin until 11, thought I was done for the night and then came home, made homemade granola, and finished a counter-full of just-been-started Christmas crafts. And now it's 2:15. But the tree is surrounded by presents that were unfinished and unwrapped this afternoon...and THAT is something, my friends. Ok, my sore brain has nothing left to spout out right now and a furry puppy and warm blanky are calling my name. Or maybe that's just me hallucinating from exhaustion. Hope to talk to you guys again soon! We have lots of catching up to do!
