If you happen to see me in the next couple of days and notice a big goose egg on my cheek, please know that my husband is not a wife-beater. Rather, I was in the attic today pulling out Christmas decorations and I tripped on a pipe and fell on the corner of a chair. John asked me why I didn't catch myself with my hands and I do not know the answer to that. That would have been the logical thing to do. Next time I hope I remember to do that. I feel very loved this evening, however. I had children bringing me ice packs and food, and cleaning the house for the rest of the evening. :) I didn't mind the pain so much then.
Our favorite long time babysitters (two sisters) have grown up and gotten jobs and boyfriends and aren't as available as they used to be. We tried out a new one tonight (who also brought her sister), so John and I had a date tonight for the first time in months! All seemed to have gone well with the babysitters so I think we'll ask them back. I just want to say, my sweet darling husband took me out for sushi even though he himself hates sushi.
Poor Jude doesn't get much blog attention and for good reasons:
1. He is a middle child.
2. He doesn't like to have his picture taken.
3. He is very serious.
4. He doesn't like to be the center of attention.
However, there is so much to brag about on him.
-He is getting straight A's.
-He was Student of the Month.
-He started piano lessons in October and is picking it up very quickly.
-He is as sweet as can be.
Evidently last week the teacher asked if anyone in the class knew how to play the piano. Well he raised his hand. She asked him to audition for the piano part of the Christmas play. Guess what? He is playing Jingle Bells for the 2nd grade Christmas play!! And he's only had six lessons! I am so incredibly proud. He takes after his dad that way.
