Because the Flu hit the Schmidt House, Brandon missed his school program and I missed Anna AND Logan's when I had it. YUK! I hate missing the kids' things. Breaks my heart. Thanks to the power of video tapes, I didn't miss Anna's at all. NOT quite the same. She had a speaking part as a narrator and did a wonderful job. She had a very loose tooth and still spoke clearly.
By the way, Anna has always been VERY tall at school compared to her friends. I was anxious to see her that night and hated not to see how tall she was this Christmas next to everyone else. She was standing next to a boy that has always been huge next to her and tall. Hardly any first graders are ever as tall as that boy, Brent.
And now she needs to ask Santa for her front tooth for Christmas! She lost it at school the next day. She was walking to music and Mrs. Driscoll, the gal I always sub for, saw how wiggly it was and asked Anna if she wanted her to pull it. OF course, she did!
Grandma Weber always has Christmas at her house, but I thought it would be nice to have it at our place this year. She is getting older and has had some health issues this year. It is time for the younger ones to take our turn at hosting for a while. We had a nice day, but I will admit, it was a bit odd not having a day at Grandma's. It was fun having everyone together and the kids all had fun. Little grace is only one and Jackson is 3 1/2. They are simply adorable. FUN and EXHAUSTING DAY! Julie and Paul's Ashleigh didn't come and the relatives from Ramsey didn't make it either.
Mostly exhausting because the flu hit our house bad in the last couple weeks. And today Barry got it. LOVELY!

We are very busy here getting ready for Christmas! People thought I was crazy when I started decorating mid November. (Thanks to Heidi and Michelle, my Marco gals). I am sooo glad that I did do my decorating early. We have been able to really enjoy the lights and my trees. I had a party in November and Barry's work managers came in the same week, so I really did need to start my baking and cleaning and decorating pretty early. We host the Weber Christmas soon so I will have 32 here next weekend for the big day.
The kids had their big church program and tomorrow is the Cantata and Anna and Brandon dress up in the Nativity and they all sing. At the Follies, Brandon and Miss Nancy did a duet and it was wonderful. Logan sang a Solo and it was awesome, too. I will post the videos another day.

Halloween came and went quickly after my Marco trip. Anna was a leopard kitty, Justin was a Ninja, Logan was V or Vendetta (whatever that is) and Brandon was who knows what and I couldn't even get a picture of him. He wore the same sweatshirt as last year. Barry pulled together a trunk for our trunk or treat for church...thanks, honey.
We recently had to get pictures for our church directory. Can you say torture? Not a fun event. It actually went just fine for some reason I decided to stop at my parents to get pictures with all of their leaves, etc. The boys were not thrilled, but endured the pain and we got some good pictures.

The trip is winding down, but we are still having a TON of fun. We always do! We spent another day relaxing at the beach and I went into the pool to cool off, too. It is HOT here and sunny. A much welcome change after last year's Hurricane Ida.
THANKS to all who are helping at home with the kiddos and house while I am away!
