I feel like I have been in hibernation (if hibernation meant spending every waking moment studying or in class) all fall, so as soon as finals were over I decided to make up for lost time by cramming about 15 parties into two weeks. 

College kids are so easy.
They will eat anything you cook and will entertain your kids for hours. 
Well, they entertain some kids more than others.

Oz came to a close.  
Mia went through withdrawals and depression and was generally unbearable for about a week after it was over.
The best Bode quote of the entire Oz run:  
Mom, why is Mia dressed like a one-eared rabbit?
Andy's grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday.  Henson was thrilled.
Trying to get a decent picture of nine great-grandkids is like me trying to go a day without coffee - it ain't gonna happen. 
For the love of money, someone tell us which way to look:
I have every intention of buying my way into the hearts of my kids' teachers. 
I like to have some credits built up in case my kid ever acts like an idiot. 
And I loved this idea from a person that is certainly not me: A different print for each holiday.  Throw in a couple of gift cards to Starbucks and Sonic and I'd say I've bought my kids at least another week or two on the good list.
You're welcome, kids.

Oh those are nice! I've been scrambling to get Cooper's teachers gifts.....I probably slacked on the PE teachers and music.....and I may or may not be regifting a hand blown glass night light I picked up at a party....bad I know. Have you seen our pics of the 9 greats.....I feel your pain, just about impossible....

I love the Henson faces. Much more now than when they were happening.
