Christmas is Near!

I just can’t believe that Christmas is Saturday!!!! Still in shock, here. =D Saturday at 11:30 my church does a midnight service, and I think we’ll be going to that. It is soo awesome!!! And then, on Christmas morning, I have a special surprise planned for my family! (Can’t say what it is yet for fear that someone will read….but I’m soo excited!)

Last night we visited with some friends, and guess what? We ended up making those holiday pretzels again! Thanks for the recipe Julie! We love it! =P

Last night I also borrowed a book from my friend, “A Walk to Remember” by Nicolas Sparks. Have any of ya’ll ever read it???? I’ve seen the movie, which I loved, and am super excited to read the book!

So next Tuesday is my birthday and next Sunday is my party. My best friend, her mom, my mom, and I will go to a nice hotel nearby and watch girly movies, eat plenty of chocolate…that sort of thing. One thing I can’t decide on is what I want for my dessert: fondue or chocolate cobbler???? Both sound sooo yummy!!! I might have to do one for the party and one on my actual birthday. Hmmmm….which sounds better to ya’ll?? Does anyone have a tried and true fondue recipe? =D

I am finally going to be done with school today……and I’m super glad about that!! =D  All that I have to do is write an essay about the 3 key things that I learned from taking my SAT prep course.

1. Never, ever take a prep course again.

2. I learned not to reccommend the SAT prep to anyone.

3. I hate taking long tests.

Sorry about the negative list….my teacher apparently couldn’t come up with a final, so he basically lumped together all of the work I’ve done this semester into 7 parts and called it a test. Section 2 had me online taking 25 practice tests which basically took up my whole day from 11 AM to 4 PM. Exactly what I wanted to do during my Christmas break. Oh well, at least it will be done and over with….

A couple more random questions for ya’ll:

What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I really have no idea….we just watched The Family Man and that was cute, but I don’t know if I have an all-time favorite. =P

What are some of your family’s Christmastime traditions?

  Well, we usually spend Christmas day at home. My sister and I get an ornament every year. Whenever we’re in the States we go to the 11:30 Christmas eve service.

Well, I have to go write an essay…

Happy Monday! =P

The HC Family Winter ’10 Tour

So, we’re at our friend’s house right now…..gonna head out at about 11, to meet up with my old youth pastor. Then, we head back home, and have dinner tonight with some friends from church.

Oh, and guess what? I’m still doing my school. Super. Just try doing your algebra out of the back of your car. I dare you. Or better yet, take a test. Then try to say that homeschooling is easy. Granted, there are perks, such as having a super flexible schedule and getting to take different classes, and I really don’t mind it at all. But still, sometimes its just fun to rant. =DOh yeah!

So yesterday, I got my first comment from someone who isn’t a family member!!!! Whooooo!!!!!! Thank you soo much! It seriously made my day. Yes, I am easily entertained.   And no, I am not ashamed to say that.

Well, I guess that today is actually turning out to be a pretty good Monday. Which has never, ever happened before. Except for the time we went shopping instead of school. I’ve got my priorities straight. Shopping trumps school every time. It’s been scientifically proven.

So, what have you all got on your schedules for the week? Any big trips coming up for Thanksgiving?

EDIT: Ya’ll go check out the awesome Magic Bullet giveaway over at Chocolate-Covered Katie!!!! Here’s the link:

Catch ya’ll later!!
