christmas cards

*The kids' school Christmas performance was this past week. Cam played the role of Blitzen and did awesome! If you had told me 8 years ago that he would not only have wanted to try out for a role, but then would love performing, I wouldn't have believed you. He's come such a long way and we were so proud.

*Yes. We are happy to have great insurance through my job and not have to pay it out of pocket like we have for the past 11 years. No, It doesn't mean everything goes flawlessly. For instance, Chris was told over a month ago that he DIDN'T break his hand (after sliding into second during a softball game). Yesterday, when he finally got an appointment with a specialist, they told him he should have babied his hand more because, in fact, he HAD broken it. Wow.

*The kids have to complete a certain number of community service hours each year for school. Yesterday, we went to a convalescent  home and they sang, read books, and passed out Christmas cards (we went with their two buddies). They really enjoyed it and it was neat for us moms to see how sweet they were to the patients.

*Yep...totally shirked on my sending Christmas cards responsibility. Hopefully next year...

*I bake much less now that I'm working. However I always make time to bake one thing on the weekend that I then take to work on Monday. This past week was, by far, the biggest hit.

24 hours from now we will be heading to Germany to spend Christmas with my whole family!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Man! I was so bummed to hear Chris's hand is indeed broken. That's quite a telling X-ray. And I think it's so great to have that community service requirement. It sounds like they brought some cheer to the residents and also felt the satisfaction of doing something kind for someone. And how great they could do it with their sweet friends.
