First, the good news is that I finally finished the puzzle I started with my mom and sister at Thanksgiving. After they left, I was too depressed thinking about them leaving to work on the puzzle. But it's done now.

The PTA at the kids' school has a week every Christmas when they set up a "store" in the library for the kids to do their Christmas shopping. They can buy inexpensive gifts for their family and friends and the PTA wraps the stuff for them. Yesterday I sent Jacob to school with $10 (and by the way, whatever amount you send, the child is going to be encouraged to spend the entire amount)... and on the envelope there is a place for you to list who the child is shopping for. I listed- Dad, Mom, Sarah and Libby. When the envelope came home, they had made a note of how much he had spent on each family member to account for the money. Here is what his envelope said when it came home:
He told me, "I had enough money leftover to buy something for myself!" Isn't he precious? (If you know me, you know that is sarcasm!) But I did laugh about it alot.
In hockey news, his team lost last night to the red team 0-9. Ouch. And the coach wasn't too happy with them, I am told, in the locker room afterward. But then, it was off to Chik-fil-a for a Christmas party and gift exchange and they all seemed to have a great time.

Helpful tip from Dr. Brenda: honey can be used as cough medicine... and to me, it works just as well as Robitussin, but tastes much better. The first time I tried it on myself, it was because I had a cough traveling in the car and all I had was a honey stick available... the cough stopped right away, but I thought it might be a fluke. Last night, I had a coughing attack and so I tried the honey again. One teaspoon and my cough stopped. This morning, I had another coughing attack and took two teaspoons (for good measure and because the piano tuner was here and I didn't want him to think I have TB or something).....and it stopped right away again. Yay! I love natural remedies!
