Booking through Thursday

Today’s question comes from Conspiracy-Girl:
I’m still relatively new to this meme so I’m not sure if this has been asked yet, but I’m curious how many of uswrite notes in our books. Are you a Footprint Leaver or a Preservationist?

I don't write in my books, I am a total Preservationist. The only time I have written in a book is when I bought textbooks for school :)

Holiday Traditions

We are a really small family & honestly don't have any major traditions. For Thanksgiving we usually spend it with my parents & brother. Sometimes we just have dinner ourselves & other times we visit either mine or my husbands grandma.

We have basic foods like Turkey, Roast Potatoes, Bread stuffing, Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Salad, Usually an Applie Pie and/or Pumpkin pie along with a Silk Chocolate pie.

I am the difficult one I eat the roast potatoes, the salad & the Silk chocolate pie :)

We just don't do anything major, I honestly don't care much for Thanksgiving. I do like to take lots of pictures & scrap what I am thankful for though. I always have intentions of doing all of these fun projects with the kids & talking about being thankful, but I just never seem to do it.

For Christmas, we celebrate it as a time with a family & the Winter solstice. Our normal tradition was to visit my Grandma on New Years eve to open presents & have dinner.…

Arriving at Tremaine

Saturday

We left a little later then planned on Saturday but we arrived with plenty of time. The classes started at 8:30. We got our schedule about 15 minutes before that. They offered lots of jazz. There were 3 classes each day in Jazz & 1 each day in Tap. Plus on Saturday they had Hip/Hop & then Ballet.

It was a very long day. It was hard because no food was offered, no drinks, etc. We weren't able to get our hotel until after 3pm & when we got into the hotel there was no fridge, no microwave. For the Hyatt it sucked to be honest. Yes it was very nice, but they offer you no nothing for the outrageous prices!

Aly enjoyed the classes. She didn't take the tap one either day. Her favorite was Hip/Hop. The girls enjoyed the male teacher, the girls all thought he was cute :) Plus he taught real hip hop with all the sound effects, etc. She has an awesome hip-hop teacher but she teaches like a dance teacher. It was fun seeing it a different way.

On Saturday they also …

Home at last

Wow, what a crazy 2 days. Seems like we fit a week into just a day & half. Got home & just saw that Aly has a writing assignment & a huge math review. I was so looking forward to just laying around, lol. Going to be bed early tonight {I hope}.
