JoGail's a winner!

JoGail placed third in the oral reading competition!!! WHOOP! WHOOP! The name of her selection was Twattletalk was about a kid who talked all the time......go figure! I am so proud of her...I will post a picture when she gets her award for it.

Had a simple supper tonight....pinto beans with cornbread. It's just hard to beat that. Made some homemade vegetable soup in the castiron dutch oven foor this weekend.....letting the flavors'll be so good!

I am excited for this weekend! I have a list of holiday things to do!!! Baking for the Tasting Tea at church, Christmas cards, and trying a new turtles.....I think this is somehting my brother in law Alex would take a pretzel and slightly melt a rolo on it then top with a pecan half.......maybe we'll make some more oreo balls too--just have to see how much energy I have!

Just got in from teh band concert and it was very nice. Not too long...just about right!!! Of course Grace was pretty much in the middle of the band so I didn't get very many good pictures of her. I was trying.....had to look through music stands to see her. But she was there!

So proud of JoGail--and of Grace at the band concert. Looking forward to seeing everyone in just a little more than a week.

Merry Christmas.

Wooo-wooo! Way to go, Girls!
I guess the cornbread was Mrs. Raley's recipe. That's what we use, sometimes, with a teaspoon of honey added to it.
