veteran's day and 11.11.11. no school again. first thing this morning, kenzie had an ortho appointment. she got new bands... pink and silver. madi got looked at and an x-ray. i had to make sure that the dentist pulled the right tooth. jen, mason and grace got there before we left. grace came with us and we stopped for gas, then ran to target to get contact paper. then we met jen at our house. jodie arrived shortly after and while the kids destroyed the house, we tried to get some crafts done. we started out slow, but then we picked up the pace and got quite a bit done. including lunch from cafe rio. i think our crafts turned out pretty cute. we did some embroidery hoop ornaments, let each of the kids draw their self portrait and then jen stenciled the color on. me and jodie worked on a christmas plain & simple project and we used some paints and stencils from martha stewart to make 2 deer pictures. everyone left just before 5:00. jen took madi and max with her. darric was still working. even after i cleaned up the house, cleaned max's room (you could not see the floor), organized the martha stewart paints and products, drove to sonic with kenzie and kobe and ate.
