1. Bria has two new teeth already! Her top two popped through early this week. I guess I'd have to dig to really find out, but I think she's way ahead of her sisters in the teeth area. I felt like the other two were toothless for a long time, and then waited long periods of time before getting subsequent teeth once they started showing up. But not Bria. She's just getting the nasty business over with, I guess. Why put off for tomorrow what you can do today?
|No picture of the teeth. Just my dismal attempt at getting a nice picture of my three girls in front of the Christmas tree.|
3. It was good that the girls were better and 24-hours barf-free by Tuesday evening, because that was a big rehearsal for the Christmas program at church this weekend. Alaina and Joya will be joining the other kids to sing a couple of songs on stage, and they needed to be there for practice. Last year Alaina completely missed the Christmas program due to an active stomach flu, so it was nice that it hit our house early this year.
P.S. Come to our Christmas Program! It's during all three services at Valley View Christian Church this weekend, on Saturday at 4:00 and Sunday at 9:00 and 10:30. There is an incredible play, along with the cuteness of the kids. You may or may not see Joya pick her nose. No promises.
4. Alaina had a big project due this week. They had to pick a country and make a poster about how that country celebrates the holidays. Alaina chose England, because she and I have a dream to take a mother/daughter trip to London someday. I don't remember doing big projects like this when I was in kindergarten, but it was fun anyway.

This is an excellent weekend for soup, is it not?
