December {in Review}

I am convinced that December goes faster than any other month of the year.  It seems like I run around like a crazy woman trying to get stuff done before the kids are out of school.  And we are super busy at work so I usually end up working more hours than most months.  On top of that there is decorating, shopping, baking, cooking, entertaining, and kids to keep up with.  Here's a rundown of this month.

1.  My oldest son hit the game winning 3 point buzzer beater shot at an away basketball game.  It was also his team's first win of the season.  His team stormed the court.  I was not there.  Biggest Mom Fail of the year.

2.  My twins made the 3rd grade All Star basketball team.  They won their game and were so excited to be on the team.  Proudest Mom Moment of the Year.

3.  I gave up on a couple of Christmas traditions this year.  I did not make my Christmas tree french toast, and no one really missed it.  I did make pancakes and bacon.  Also in the past I took each boy to Hallmark to pick out an ornament.  I either waited too long to go look, or my boys are getting too old, or maybe a little bit of both.  But I did not buy any Hallmark ornaments this year!

4.  I got braces!  Yes, it's true.  One of my front teeth has shifted way back, so I made an appointment with my long ago (the 1990s) orthodontist.  Yes, he still has an office!  On the phone they said it would just be a 15 minute consultation.  So he looked at my mouth, quoted me a price, and said we can do it now.  I left with a bottom jaw full of metal.  They are going to work on my bottom teeth first and then work on the top.  Good Times!!  I totally forgot how painful braces are.

5.  I am looking forward to 2014.  I will be 40 in August!  I am working on setting some goals and thinking what I want to do for my 40th birthday.  And hopefully my braces will be off before I turn the big 4-0!!
