We're still here

Remember me?

If you do not, don't feel bad. I hardly remember myself these days either.

But alas, I am still here.

I have so many things to share! But seeing that 2015 is nearly over, I'm thinking most of it will have to wait until 2016.

How about a few highlights, shall we?

Remember that HORRID weight loss thing I was in at Thanksgiving? Well I ended up winning it! In five weeks, I lost 10.8 pounds. It was both horrid and fabulous all at once. If I were to give a speech about my win, I would have to thank my sister who guided me through it, and always talked me off the brownie ledges. Here's to you, Jo!

Tomorrow is our last day before break, and we are all pretty ecstatic. How fun are these shirts we all wore, in honor of the first lady, Mrs. Clark?! SO PERFECT.

Hope has been sick for almost an entire week, but before all that she was having a pretty good time in school, even being recognized as a Leader of the Month.

But there's this too...

I went to put Hope to bed one night and I was horrified when I noticed nearly 1/4 of her eyebrows were missing. "HOPE, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR EYEBROWS?" Her eyes darted around the room, and that's when I knew she pulled a Vanilla Ice and decided to play 'design a brow. WHY DID YOU DO THAT? She really had no reason. I guess it's no different than the time I decided as a young child to "cut all the brown out of my hair." Well, except my mom could just cut my hair into a bob, and all was well. I mean am I draw the brows on like an elderly woman? I think not. Just rock a funky brow, who knows maybe you'll start a trend.

Okay, and this?

Well this might be one of my favorite pictures of Pierce, ever. He was in a colonial program and when I got him his costume he was THRILLED. Seriously cracks me up.

He's still doing great in school, rocking the Beta club, the Leadership program, and now the Gifted and Talented program.

So yeah, we are all here. We are doing well, and I hope you are doing well. Sorry for the lack of updates, but I hope you can remain patient.

Here's to a fabulous 2016, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
