The Fourth Day of Christmas

Today is the Fourth Day of Christmas and Kevin the elf told Evan that we should watch a Christmas movie today.  Dewey and Nicole went to watch a play tonight so Will, Evan and I stayed home and watched Elf. Evan was quite excited to watch a movie about Kevin’s friends!

Evan’s preschool is going to have a Christmas program in mid-December so he is constantly breaking out into song or rhyme but then shutting up like a clam if you mention it.  Amazingly enough he let me catch him on camera BUT he decided to take some “creative license” with the poem half way through.  I promise to repost if I can catch the “real” version on video!

Today I also got to do something fun!  My friend, Shawna, and I went to a painting “class” through Girltalk.  Honestly, we didn’t really even remember what the class was all about because we signed up so long ago.  We had a great chat driving out to Bragg Creek where it was held even though we had a bit of trouble figuring out where we were supposed to go.

Even though we both thought we were lacking in creative talent, we were able to make some great paintings.  The lady who taught the class is going to make one  of our projects into 6 greeting cards as well which is kind of cool.

Clockwise from top left: My owl picture, Shawna working on her masterpieces, my messy work space, my abstract Christmas tree.
Painting class was definitely out of my comfort zone….What have you done lately that was out of your comfort zone but you ended up enjoying it more than you thought you would?

I joined a Burlesquercise class in October. We have a student showcase gala next weekend.....performing in front a bunch of strangers is about as "outside my comfort zone" you can get, i think :0)
