This year, the ballet company teamed-up with a local dance supply shop to offer beautiful Christmas ornaments that will be personalized with their names and Nutcracker Ballet 2013. They will be presented as a surprise at the Saturday night show.

This cold front everyone is talking about sure hasn't found its way down south. It's almost 80 at 9:30AM..but it's supposed to get into the 60's tomorrow.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Best wishes to Elizabeth!!!

I am not too sure of anything else that may be happening today. I know that I have hockey tonight at 10pm. It's a little late, but I am excited to play. I missed last week due to having to teach in Cornwall. Hopefully we can win our first game in a while tonight.

Well, I should be going. It's another 50 minutes to drive home... and then find something to cook for dinner. I'm already starving, too!

Have a great Monday, everyone! Merry Christmas!
Good luck tonight!

It seems like everytime I get on Facebook the number of confirmed Tornado's yesterday keeps rising. It's now up to 23 and they are still out there investigating. That stands as the thrid most in a single day in Indiana history.

It's so exciting to see all your Christmas trees and decorations going up!

I spent a Christmassy day spent a good hour and a half wandering around Russell's Garden Center in Wayland looking at all their wonderful Christmas stuff---so many things I saw made me think of all of you. I also stopped at the Home Depot for some additional Christmas lights---I needed an extra string for my tree, and got a couple strings of C7s to string on the hedge out front. (As usual, I mixed white bulbs in with multicolor bulbs.) I'll string the lights on the tree when I get home from work the day before Thanksgiving (hoping that will be early!), and the outdoor lights will go up shortly after. (I just can't get the hang of outdoor decorating my efforts usually look pretty lame. But I always attempt something.)

It was so enjoyable to spend the day doing Christmas things I hate to go back to work tomorrow. But it'll be a four-day week, and next week will be a short week leading up to Thanksgiving (is it possible? already?!), then lots of gift-wrapping and packages and music!

Mr. is still feeling pretty rough with his cold and is very raspy, but I'm hoping he's turned the corner and will be over it in a few days. Crossing my fingers that it won't latch onto me next. I'm going to try to get some hot tea into him this evening.
I'm happy to hear you had a great day! I hope Mr. Is feeling better!!

Thanks. It's amazing there were only a couple of minor injuries. There was one couple in a house that got tore off of it's foundation and flipped up side down. They walked away with just a few bumps and bruises. There was a car picked up and thrown into the front of a starbucks. No one was hurt though. Two schools got hit but luckily there wasn't any one in them. It's just amazing to see the destruction and know that no one got killed.

Good evening MMC!
I'm getting ready to turn in, it's been a long day.
I took my daughter to the doctor earlier and it doesn't look like she has strep. She's still complaining of a sore throat, hopefully it will pass soon.
I spent the rest of the day getting errands and chores done and making a big pot of chicken soup. The day flew by.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great day!
See you in the morning!
Goodnight!!!
