fun with chalkboard paint
This week I feel like the Christmas Season can really begin in our house, since last Monday I got a root canal and the week was spent mostly with me moaning around the house, clutching my cheek, practicing labor breathing for pain management since you can't take a lot of painkillers when you are pregnant (labor breathing in this situation, by the way, very ineffective, at least the way I was doing it).
But now, let the fun begin! One thing on our to-do list is to come up with a great service project for our kids to be involved with before Christmas. Donating money is important, but they are getting old enough that I want to do something that will involve them, and give them a memory that might help to better define the real meaning of Christmas, you know? Any great ideas?
