I probably should have tried a little harder (or at all) with my hair. I had just been camping with the girl scouts but I had showered so I'm not sure what my excuse is.
Every year that the last days of school aren't cancelled because of snow, the kids' school has a holiday sing along. The kids always really enjoy it and that's why if we're not going out of town and school doesn't get out until like the 23rd some years Jaide has not wanted to stay home even if I suggest it. The sing along is big fun! They sing winter, Christmas, Hanukkah, and even a Kwanzaa song. I've never been to it before, but this year I got to go to both sessions. It was also our principal's last day as she is retiring. It was kind of sad. She has been at the school for 18 years. That's even longer than I'm going to be there with these three kids! The PTA president and the good people who are playing Elkster the school mascot this year wanted something to present to our retiring principal at the sing along. I was commissioned to make a scroll and write something on it. I didn't know what to write so I asked the PTA board. Someone smarter than me told me to ask google. It worked! I found some poems already written by other people about principals retiring. Shortly before the lower grades holiday sing along was about to begin, our tiny committee chose one of the poems I'd printed out, tweaked it a bit and wrote it on the scroll.

|Luke thoroughly enjoyed the mini pies. We're blessed to have a family in the ward that owns a cookie business. They make other yummy desserts too.|
