We had a great Christmas . We opened up presents on Christmas morning then went to my in-laws for breakfast. Jack loved everything he got but his top 4 presents were the star wars body pillow , Minecraft Legos , blue tooth speaker, and book of kid's jokes. We spent the night at my Mom's and played lots of games too. We even played Pie Face. The weather was absolutely beautiful too.

We have been to several fun parties within the last week. Three parties actually. The first was with Jack's homeschool group. She had some fun games for the kids to play and the adults joined in to. One was trying to get the Rudolph nose on a string to stick on your nose with vaseline. I thought the kids were going to get whiplash.
I had a few of the kids that were at Jack's birthday party send me pictures of them doing some of the science experiments that were in their goody bags. They all seemed to love the experiments. Jack liked the Ivory soap in the microwave too.
I had gone to another party with my brother and sister in law. There were games and silly masks involved.
Then we had a family cousin dirty santa party which was a lot of fun . I can't believe how warm the weather has been. The kids played outside most of the time.
I'm all partied out with a party Friday, Saturday and Tuesday. I rested until Christmas day.

Jack had an amazing Mad Scientist Party. The theme was a big hit with all the boys . First they put on their lab coats and safety goggles then we went into the color changing milk experiment. Then we made balloons inflate with baking soda and vinegar. We attempted to make bouncy balls and that was an epic fail. The last experiment was elephant toothpaste which was pretty awesome. The yeast I had was about 2 yrs old so there was a delayed reaction but it still worked. Three out of four experiments working isn't bad. Then we had pizza and running around outside. Did I mention it was December 12th and 72 degrees outside? Well it was beautiful. Then presents and cake. It was awesome. I sent home a science kit with each child and I have received some pictures of the kids trying their experiments at home which warms my heart.

Thursday Grandma took Jack out to breakfast and got him a Minecraft poster. I had my office Christmas party and got a beautiful angel candle holder which Jack thought was for him and he even picked out the place he wanted to put it. Then my coworker Amy, who always remembers Jack brought him a Lego set which he loved and immediately put together.
Friday we still had school even though we had a lot of errands to run. That's the beauty of homeschool :workbook pages , educational apps ,quizzing spelling words and times tables while driving. One of the errands included picking out his free birthday treat at the Barnes and Noble cafe. Then he picked out his own birthday cake. We went to Toys r Us where he got a balloon and spent his gift card and 3.00 free card from Geoffrey ' s birthday club. After the all the errands and our school day was over , we played Jack's new video game while the dog went after the balloon. She either loves them or hates them, we haven't decided. I cuddled and calmed her down. The weather has been beautiful and 73 degrees.
