What a surprise that on this morning the area was covered in ice from freezing rain and later in the evening we had a dusting of snow. We don’t often get snow where we live so the kids were excited even with the light dusting.

We go to a pretty big church so big in fact, that they had 5 Christmas Eve services. Since we had premade plans with my husband’s side of the family on Christmas Eve morning, we opted for the Christmas Eve Eve Eve service our church hosted on the Friday right before Christmas Day.
A few days ago my family received the Family Honor Plate & Table Thyme Discussion Cards through the mail. The inner package was wrapped in yellow paper and my kids were super excited to see what it was. The idea of the plate set is to make a point of seeing the good character your child or children in the family are doing throughout their day and honoring them with the plate. The discussion cards offer family’s a way to connect screen-free through all sorts of different questions to answer and discuss over the dinner table.
“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia
We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly. I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!
We spent the weekend camping with friends. We only traveled about 40 minutes from home to a campground called Promontory Park located in Estacada Oregon. It’s a few days later but we are still feeling the effects it had into our daily routine. The kids eat less and don’t rest as much because of all the excitement plus my oldest always gets bad car sickness if we travel more than 15 minutes or so down the road. There and back she got sick even with the cold air blowing and sitting in the front seat. We have come to the assumption we are just going to have to give her Dramamine® for Kids for future further adventures down the road and to always wear Seabands.
The Guess How Much I Love you series by best-selling author Sam McBratney have been some of my favorite books to read to both my children! What’s exciting is that my kids can enjoy the book series inspired animated adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare on DVD . I don’t know about you, but I find something magical about seeing my favorite storybook characters come to life on screen and this feature doesn’t disappoint!
