Such a great week!
The kids had two parties, one for co-op, and one for Latin club, and now we have a two week holiday!
Well, actually, we are down to one week now, but still.... a holiday!
And my parents have been coming over to play!
On Friday they decorated ginger bread houses with us!
My mom's, as always, is the tastefully restrained one. Travis made a Minecraft themed structure (I messed him up by making too-thick icing). Katie made Galileo and his observatory. (Did he have an observatory?)
As you may remember, my old (10 year old) faithful computer has been showing its age. Travis extracted a large chunk of it (he hates it when I refer to the chunk as "the brain," so I won't, but it was something like that) and got it going, but we've been unable to set up a restore system for it and haven't dared turn it off, and it edits photos and does other useful things at a Very sedate speed.
My daddy has very kindly been setting all its settings up just as I like them and transferring stuff over, so everything is going smoothly!
So... I am typing on a lovely new keyboard, and editing photos in a new program! I've already discovered that Microsoft Writer stinks for posting pictures to the blog (and I will be pretty groggy tomorrow at church as a result!), but otherwise... Perfection!
And here are photos from the Latin Club Party
And the annual mangling of Adeste Fideles!
