My birthday also falls in the week prior to Christmas. This year I am turning 40. It still surprises me when I look in a mirror and find I am not the 16 year old me I expect to see. To celebrate, I planned my own little party. My two sons, daughter and her husband, my husband and I all went to see The Hobbit in 3D at the IMAX theater today. Afterwards, we went for dinner at the Cracker Barrel restaurant. Tomorrow I will have to get back to serious holiday preparation. But tonight it's nice to know there are no lessons to plan, no workbooks to correct and no science experiments to organize.
I won't be posting for the next two weeks, so have a happy holiday season and I hope to see you back here in 2013!
