Catch-up Blogging

It's been such a busy few weeks... I'm going to take a few posts today and catch up on what we've been up to.

Reece made a really cool creation out of her Lego/Duplo blocks. It took me awhile to figure out what it was, and she had to help me. It is Ariel, the Little Mermaid. If you can get the picture bigger, and look over to the left of Reece, you will see her Little Mermaid ornament that she based it on! Cool, huh? She has been given the 'all clear' on her ears, and she can bathe/shower/swim without ear plugs!
This is a picture from the dress rehearsal for the Christmas singing last Sunday. It was the Adult choir, part of the children's choir, the middle school and high school choirs. It's probably more people than are in some of your churches at all! It was lovely music, despite the fact that Riley and the other sugar plum fairies were hiding during the entire thing. GRRR
Last week, my friend Jan and I went to the Atlanta History Center to see the Festival of Trees with our kids. There were a few nice trees around, but we were surprised to find out that most of the trees had been auctioned off and taken home! LOL Note to self: go to the festival of trees before the 14th of December.
Below is a picture of the kids from Special Time with Santa, sponsored by the Autism Society of GA. It was $20 per family, and you had an appointment and Santa all to yourselves in a classroom. For an additional $5 they took some pictures, which we are supposed to be getting on CD in the mail. There were crafts, snacks, a sensory playroom, and music therapy. Reece absolutely loved the music therapy, and if they were any closer to our home we would definitely try to get her enrolled in a class!

Glad you posted all that! Wish I had time to write about all of it or to talk with you. Cute mermaid, glad you have fun with your friend, Santa by yourself is a great idea, the choir sounds cool and so do the dances. Can't watch the videos. Ah well. Merry Christmas!
