And it's almost Chritmas

Crazy how fast this month has flown.
Here it is the eve of Christmas eve.

Somehow I've been ahead of the Christmas rush this year.
Pretty much got all the shopping out of the way around black Friday, with the exception of a few things I picked up yesterday while shopping with Chyann.

Yes our girl made it home on Wednesday.
She arrived with a car load of laundry and the good news of being on the Dean's list with a 4.0 grade average!
She has decided to do a double major - Environmental Science and English with a possible minor in soils. Guess she'll will decide on that later.
Super proud that her first semester away from home has been successful!
She even worked 15-20 hours a week.
Pretty damn impressive.

Our boy has began his Christmas break as well.
We had an interesting week worrying if he broke his nose at a friends house last weekend. They were sledding and he took a shoulder to the nose when they were screwing around trying to knock one another off the sled going down hill.
Fun for 14 year old boys I suppose.
Anyhow his eyes were black and his nose was outrageously swollen, made worse by the fact that he lost some nose skin in the collision.
Looked awful.
Doc said wait about five days for the swelling to go down then bring him in if it looked too crooked.
The Hubby was convinced it was broke. Me not so much.
We were both relieved to see after the swelling went down that it looked normal.
The kid is definitely on track to have a Wilson nose like Chyann does. Part of my family legacy we are passing on :)

Another enjoyable Christmas concert at school.

Colton will be home tomorrow morning it sounds like. He has some new schedule of working overnights from 10p to 6a. A shitty shift in my opinion. He doesn't like it much either and is going to see about changing it after the first of the year.
He just finished all his finals on Wednesday and is done for the semester as well.

I had hoped with all the snow we have gotten in the last few weeks we'd be able to get out the snowmachine and play outside while they are home, but it sounds like Christmas day is actually going to bring a mix of snow/sleet in the am then a bunch of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Hard to imagine thunderstorms in December.

Today we are baking.
Cookies, candies and other goodies for us and for Chyann to take over to the boyfriends family's celebration that she is attending this evening.

Merry Christmas. Glad you get to have your family home.
Funny photo with your daughter under a pile of cats. I guess they missed her? It sounds like everyone is doing so well. And to be together for the holidays is the best gift of all.
