let's see not much to update here. we've been preparing for christmas
here. we wrapped all the gifts this past weekend and decorated a little gingerbread tree. i'm
pretty much ready to go - just food shopping and such. huge sigh of relief. the kids are gearing up for it and can't wait to decorate the tree tonight. it's my mom's birthday today - trying to think about her a lot today. happy birthday mom - i miss you!

yesterday we went letterboxing
for the first time with the kids. no we weren't letting them hit each other with huge letters nor were we delivering mail. :) here's a good definition...
letterboxing enthusiasts hide and hunt weatherproof containers in remote or
scenic places. each container holds a guestbook, a rubber stamp and stamp
pad. the planter of the letterbox distributes clues to it's location. clues
can be easy to difficult; finding a letterbox may require a combinaton of
skills such as mapreading, orienteering, and puzzle-solving.
basically, you go to the letterboxing.org
website, look up a location and print the directions. off you go on a hunt for boxes. the kids loved it! i loved it! terry loved it! so much fun to have a quest during our usual tromp in the woods. so intriguing to know those boxes were hiding out there the whole time. i see a lot more of this in our future. i took a lot of pictures but didn't have time to go through them last night. who knows we might even get into geocaching
- which is a similar concept, but using a gps
work is awesome - i'm
loving my new job. so much better than the last one. so much better than my prior position - i'm
really excited about it!
hope you and yours are happy and healthy. have a wonderful christmas
and a prosperous new year! i'll
post next year. ;)
