Wow, I can’t believe that the NEW YEAR is right around the corner!! 2020 flew by. So much happened, I forgot sometimes that it’s only been a year. *nods*
I did a ton of school at the beginning of the month ’cause I knew I would get behind with our trip and all of the holidays. I’m getting really close to finishing some of my classes! SO EXCITING!
We finally bought a new van! I got into it for the first time and was like, “WOW. THIS IS SO CLEAN. AND IT DOESN’T SMELL LIKE OLD FASTFOOD, DIAPERS AND SOCKS!!!” XD Joys of living in a big family!
We had a LOT of celebrations during December! First was Hanukah! You can see my posts about it here and here. Hanukah is one of my favorite holidays. I really enjoyed watching the candles, eating latkes (& making them one night) and remembering the miracle of the light.
Dovid had his second birthday!!! I can’t believe how big he’s getting! He’s such a smart, clever little guy!
LOOK AT THAT CAKE!!! Mama did a great job!!
The big birthday boy!!!
So, I’m writing this post early because we’re leaving for a vacation to TX on Christmas Eve. I plan to do a whole post about that later. Anyway, since we haven’t celebrated Christmas yet, I can’t write about it. 😉 XD But, by the time you read this, Christmas will be over and we will have had a wonderful day (hopefully!).
Before we left for the trip, I spent a while making food that we could take along for a Christmas meal! I made mashed potatoes, stuffing, apple sauce, (to go along with our game hens!!!), GF bagels and…CHRISTMAS PUDDING! It was the first time I’d ever made it. It was a super fun experience. (And much easier than I thought it’d be!)
One BIG thing that happened for me this month has to do with my sugar gliders! If you follow my glider blog An Inky Dream, you know what I mean! 😉 Dreamer had babies!!! She had beautiful twin girls. They came OOP (out of pouch) on December 1st. I will be selling them when they are weaned (sometime at the beginning of February). If you are interested, please contact me here. You can see more pictures and the prices for the babies here.
Little Laelynn! ❤
And my adorable Star Rain. (Do you see her red eyes?!)
AND NOW FROM THE BESTEST YOVEIL!
I was looking in the mirror at the pimple on my face. Yoveil was in the room, too.
Yoveil: Do you have a pimple, Hada?
Me: On my nose. (the worst place, of course XD)
Yoveil: I see one somewhere else, too.
Me: Yeah, I have a lot.
Yoveil: Is Mommy going to pop them?
Me: No, I’ll pop them. ‘Cause it’s fun.
Yoveil: Aw, I wish I had a pimple. I want to pop a pimple. But I don’t want anyone else to. It might hurt.
What did you do in December? Did you have a good Christmas? Have you ever had Christmas pudding? What are your plans for January? Any New Year’s goals?
