Weekly Challenge #378

Happy First Monday of December!! 

in just a few short weeks this blog will turn 8.   I can hardly believe it - eight years and almost 400 weeks of challenges.  It's pretty incredible!

And only a few weeks left of 2018 before we start the New Year.

The boys have been going crazy with Christmas movies and wanting to do Christmassy stuff.

little flautist
 Chewie had his first ever Band Concert this week - he plays the flute, and there's something magical about the honks and squeaks of a fifth grade concert band that i just find so endearing.  But no squeaks or honks to be heard from the flute section. :D  He did such a great job.


Early Saturday morning i had to go and moonlight making donuts again, so i missed Elfbulla's grand entrance, but i took a photo after the fact.  Apparently Elfybulla had an Elf Christmas party the night of November 30th and lost track of time, and then on his way up the tree he heard someone coming down the stairs and just froze.  The boys figured that he probably heard me get up at 5 to make donuts.

Artoo and I watchingn Christmas movies
 Artoo was feeling a bit under the weather this weekend, but i think he's going to be okay.  Lots of rest and christmas shows and i think we're good to go.

Destruction is a family job.
 Sunday afternoon B-rad and i decided to just get rid of our entry way closet.  Just knock it down and make more space - and the boys decided to help tear down the wall, it was kind of fun.

All done for the day 
So we managed to clear out the old closet, and Monday b-rad is going to the store to get a bit of supplies for patching up the walls.  I'm super exited about it.  \\\
