Last year I came up with a calendar of events that I made for the family. It was totally volunteer since my Dear Kiddies are all supposed adults and Dear Hubby has a crazy basketball/wrestling schedule at his job (one of the local high schools).
So I thought I would share.....notice there are a few blanks so if you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them. I might have to check on going to the Biltmore House. We have been before at Christmas but it is pretty pricey (as in $52.00 a head just to get in the door). The dates that are in red are the nights that Dear Hubby isn't home so whatever I do, I will be doing alone.

The cookie baking may change. I just found out from the doctor that my cholesterol is above borderline and into the high bracket. Uuggghhh. So we may have to rethink some menus like the pizza on Movie night :>(
And the trip to the craft show may change if our high school does well in the football playoffs. We are 10-0 right now. Dec. 5th is the state championship game. We've been before and have even been state champions twice in the last 10 years so it is a very good possibility we may be back.
And the pictures, well just because I like them. I got them from somewhere off the internet but don't remember where. Feel free to right-click and save them to your hard drive.
