Just a Little Update!

Howdy everyone! Boy... it's been awhile since I gave you an update of the family so here's what's going on with us right now.

Todd is currently home right now on his 9 days off.  He's due to return up North on Friday.  Sadly, he won't be home for Christmas but will return on New Year's Eve.  We hoping there's no flight delays like last set.

Spencer and I are headed home for a very short visit.  We leave Christmas Day and return on the 29th.  Yes... it's a REALLY short trip.  We're looking forward to spending time with my Mom, Christie & Mark.  It will be our last Christmas in our family home.

We've had some gorgeous frosty morning here on the lake.  The one morning the trees were covered in horror frost.  So beautiful!!!

Here was a picture of the paved road headed towards our house...

So far Spencer is plugging away at school.  With his ADHD and ODD challenges, he struggles everyday but we plod along and help him as best as we can.  His reading is improving by leaps and bounds now that we use a yellow filter over his workbooks and homework sheets.

Spencer has a bunch of teeth ready to pop through his gums - the problem is that they are coming in behind his baby teeth.  I had the same issue when I was his age.  His top 2 teeth are just waiting to pop out!

Last week I enjoyed Spencer's Christmas concert at the school called "Sparkle & Shine".  Here's a little excerpt of the main chorus.  Spencer is on the far right side with the bright orange shirt on.  You'll have to excuse the 2 little girls that walked in front of the camera and my awful mobile phone video camera (it sucks!)...

I sure hope this video shows up!

Spencer has been enjoying the outdoors thoroughly!  Since the lake is frozen now, he likes to venture out on the ice and join the ice fishermen sometimes.  Yesterday he came home with a little minnow in hand!

Hoping everyone is having a good December!  Our fall went way too fast!!!!
