Teacher gifts

For teacher gifts this year, I used to make word clouds of Cael's teachers' names. He gave me the words to use and I typed them in and printed them out. I cut them out and mounted them on scrapbook paper and framed them.

It's that time again

for Christmas programs. Cael's school program is tonight. Robin and I have been hearing the songs for it for quite a while. I'm sure we'll be able to sing along. Allen comes home on Sunday, so we'll be getting a DVD of the performance so he can see it. The church program is on Christmas Eve, of course, as it is every year. The great part of Cael's school program is that it's directed by Brenda Lambert. She was our band teacher when Allen and I were in high school. The other day she was walking across the parking lot going into school when I dropped Cael off. He ran to her and they walked into school together. That was a little weird seeing my old teacher walking into school with my son. I think he's her first 2nd generation student. We get to go get Allen in Omaha on Sunday. A couple of friends from church are going to be there as well so we can all hang out and "play." Allen and Keith have been looking forward to this for quite a while. I believe go-karts are involved. We're excited to have Allen home for longer than a 4 day weekend. He'll get to Nebraska on Sunday and leave again on the 4th of January. He gets longer than I do for school! He'll be going to the doctor while he's home for his hip. He's pretty miserable. All he wants to do is to be able to run again, but right now, it's so painful, he really can't even walk too terribly far without a lot of pain. Please keep him in your prayers. I'll post pics of tonight as soon as I can. You can be sure there will be pics of Sunday as well!
