Friday we kick it off with our long standing tradition of Ornament Day. We will travel to the mall and stroll through Hallmark as each of the kids picks out an ornament. It is always a favorite day, and we look forward to it each year. This year my Danish student Madison will not be with us, but I am planning on picking one out for her. : ) We are also planning on visiting with Steve's Mum in her nursing home. She is slowly progressing down that sad pathway of Dementia, but always has a smile for her baby Steve.
Saturday my men are taking one last shot at archery hunting, and the girls and I are going to start decorating!!!! I have learned through the years that doing a little at a time is much more enjoyable. For all of us. We will attend Mass and pick up some dinner before coming home and relaxing with some blankets and TV. The perfect Saturday night. : )
Sunday we have no plans. Other than putting up our family Christmas tree! Because. Christmas! We will put on some music and take our time decorating and rearranging until we get it just right. Dinner will be baked ziti with some garlic toast, and hopefully one of Peyton's yummy desserts. We will finish our weekend with The Holiday Baking Challenge, followed by The Walking Dead. After our littlest is off in dreamland.
Before we head off into the weekend, let's take a quick look back at the week that was in our house.
Last weekend was beautiful, and we enjoyed every minute of it before we headed to Saturday evening Mass.
We changed out Flynn's pajama drawer. The only thing that could make me happy after packing up the Halloween ones is getting out the Christmas ones!
And I finally bought Steve and I some new sheets. Do you do that too? I have so much fun shopping for the kids that I never think of getting for us! But I found these sheets in the Pottery Barn catalogue, and fell in love. They aren't flannel, but rather super soft and really cozy. And soft. : )

And although our home will be all about Christmas, we decorated the schoolroom for November with all things Thanksgiving.
It is cozy and warm. : )
Last week was all about corn...We read about the Pilgrims and how they learned to plant it...
We did a super fun experiment with baking soda and vinegar...
And watched as our prediction came true!
We learned about volume and mass using popcorn...
By measuring equal amounts of unpopped and popped kernels...
And had to eat it afterward, of course.
And yes. We school in jammies.
Homeschool perk. : )
Art class was a fun project making colorful Indian Corn. : )
And thanks to all of you who entered the drawing for this sweet Thanksgiving candle.
And the winner is....
Please email me with your information so I can get it out to you as soon as possible. : )
Have a wonderful, cozy weekend with your people, my friends!
Thank you for visiting.
