Life got in the way of making timely posts in December (as well it should! so I make no apology). In between finishing up a bit of homeschooling, decorating, cooking, Christmas shopping, crafting, posting reminders of homeschool activities/field trips to our Unschoolers of Memphis yahoo group and Homeschoolers of Memphis Eclectic Message Board, taking the girls to see the Tennessee Shakespeare Company Southern Yuletide performance of The Gift of the Magi and Other Christmas Readings, to see A Christmas Carol at Theater Memphis, on a backstage tour of The Orpheum Theater in downtown Memphis, along with walking through The Peabody Hotel, seeing the Peabody ducks (that swim in the indoor fountain), lunch at The Little Tea Shop on Monroe (a Memphis lunch tradition, where prices remain reasonable, corn sticks rule, 40+ years of customers' drawings decorate the walls, and local lawyers and judges have "their" tables where their sweet tea is waiting for them when they get out of court), a trip to Memphis City Hall to straighten out a pension issue of my mother's (where my mild-mannered 18 year old fencing daughter said "oops, I have 2 knives in my purse" and about got cited for carrying an illegal knife -- illegal in that it was over 4 inches long!!?? -- in to City Hall -- I guess that's one of those homeschooler learning gaps: the girls aren't terribly cognizant of security checks) -- well all of that just didn't leave a lot of time for uploading pictures and composing coherent posts. So, after that summary of our busy December, here are some pics of the ornaments I made this year.
And thus concludes the Christmas Season of 2011. So many treats left unmade, so many activities left undone . . . .
