Stella of course is quite interested in the Christmas decorations. She is always interested in what the people are doing in the house. So far so good. I put this small tree up first to see how she would do. The large tree got her attention - just for a little bit, but then there are no ornaments on it yet. It may be a very different story when everything glitters and twinkles. She really is such a pain - but she's worth it.
Kasey discovered crafting! - thanks to Pinterest. Her she is with the wreath that she made simply by tying ribbon on a ring. She couldn't ask for a better boyfriend now that she likes to Michael's to shop - Jake grew up going to that store probably more often than the grocery store.
This was sooooo good. We decided to go to a Pho restaurant yesterday after Richard was finished getting steroid shots in his back. He couldn't eat all day - until after the procedure - so he was extremely hungry. This was only part of the meal. We also had sort of salad with lettuce, noodles, beef, and shrimp and the best sauce ever. I don't know why we don't eat there more often.
Oh - let's not forget Richard waiting for his steroid shots. A few weeks ago when I had surgery he took a picture of me wearing this lovely outfit. Of course he didn't blog it or send it to everyone like I did. Everything went fine and the actual procedure only took about 5 - 10 minutes. He is still hurting today - but they said it may take a day or two before he feels better. I am just praying that it does what it is supposed to do and he can get back to normal. I really hated seeing him this way - it has always been me in the gown and surgical cap.
I had a week off from work due to surgery . . . worked a few days . . . had a week off for Thanksgiving Break . . . now we have 3 more weeks until Winter Break . . . another reason to love my job!
