Merry Christmas, Emily!
Emily and I had a girls' day out Sunday. We spent the day shopping and dining. We then spent an enjoyable evening together in Cincinnati watching Dancing With The Stars Live.
This is the second year Emily has asked for show tickets for Christmas. David took her last year due to poor weather and road conditions. I got to go this time.
It was a lot of fun. There was a lot of shaking and a lot of skin showing.
We enjoyed the
view . Ahem, I mean we enjoyed the talented dancing.
I don't think it's a show I want to take my ten year old daughter to see, but Emily and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We did take our ten year old daughter to a skating party last night. We also took our nine year old son.
The school hosted their monthly skating party.
David joined us for some fun.
There were lots of friends skating and playing games. We had a great time.
Well, we had a great time until Grace fell down and busted her backside.
Then it wasn't so fun anymore.
She recovered. A little bit of sympathy from her dad and an ice cream cone on the way home did much to lift her spirits...and ease her suffering.
Grant is still s-p-e-l-l-i-n-g his way toward Friday's school spelling bee. Each class winner gets to participate in the school bee. He's a great speller. He does not like to practice. We shall see how that works for him. I'm guessing not well. But I could be pleasantly surprised.
