The Homeschool Weekly Buzz - November 29, 2014

Join me, Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers, and The Homeschool Mother's Journal as we recap our week.
In my life this week...This week was busy and felt really short.  I guess losing one day to a holiday will do that to a person.
In our homeschool this week... We started back up after our two week break while moving.  Things went fairly smooth, so I am very happy.
My favorite thing this week was...My favorite thing this week was setting up the Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving dinner.  It's always so much fun.
My kiddos favorite thing this week was... The girls loved making pies and getting to eat them too.
Things I'm working on...We are working on unpacking everything.  Most of the things are put away, but there are a few boxes to do.
I'm cooking... This week was Thanksgiving so there was a lot of baking going on.  The girls and I mad an apple and pumpkin pie on Wednesday.  Then we made honey cornbread muffins for Mr. Daddy to take to work on Black Friday.
I'm grateful for... I'm grateful for the very mild weather.
I'm praying for... I'm praying that our other place gets rented soon.  Paying for two places isn't any fun, especially with Christmas coming so soon.
Something I am ogling or have my eye on...I have my eye on the Samsung Gear fit. It's a watch, has a heart rate monitor and you can get text on it too. You can look at the screen horizontal or vertical.
A photo, video, link, or quote to share...

I am thankful for Christmas music.  I love music as a whole, but Christmas music is my favorite.  This year Mr. Daddy bought the new Pentatonix CD, "That's Christmas to Me." We LOVE Pentatonix, but their new CD is AMAZING!!!!!

30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 26

Day 26
I am thankful for my new baby play yard.  Before we moved we had to decide what we were going to keep and what to get rid of.  We decided to get rid of Mr. Mister's crib and just use the pack n' play for his bed for the next couple months until he grows into his toddler bed.  We were able to get rid of the crib, but now we needed something downstairs to keep Mr. Mister out of trouble.  Mr. Daddy did some research and decided on a play yard.  Mr. Mister  enjoys his freedom and I love knowing he's safe.  What are you thankful for?
Until next time,

30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 18

Day 18
I am thankful for Sonic happy hour.  When you are unpacking and trying to keep the kids from getting hurt or braking things sometimes you just need a break and a drink.  Sonic's happy hour, and it's half priced drinks, are a perfect solution.  What are you thankful for?

30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 17


Day 17
I am thankful for Mr. Daddy's new boss and coworkers.  Yesterday the scheduled movers didn't show up.  Mr. Daddy's boss sent over help.  We were able to unload the truck with some help.  Our bodies are a little sore now, but not as bad as they would be.  What are you thankful for?
Until next time,

30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 16

Day 16
I am thankful for our air mattress.  We arrived last night in our new town and got the keys to our new place, but the movers won't be here until later to unload the truck and we didn't want to pay for a hotel.  The girls slept in tier sleeping bags and Mr. Mister slept in his pack n' play.  Mr. Daddy and I avoided sleeping on the floor thanks to our air mattress.  It not only comes in handy for moving but also for any house guests.  What are you thankful for?

30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 15

Day 15

I am thankful for movers.  This time we only used people to load the truck, but it's so worth the cost.  It's stressful enough to know that we will be driving over 5 hours with a 26 foot moving truck towing our car and me driving in the mini van with the kids without having to worry about loading the truck.  What are you thankful for?
Until next time,
