Day 24
Sleeping Beauty! We went to Fridays for dinner and Jess slept through the entire meal.

Day 23

Out at Unos with the kids. Jess loves having her picture taken; Jason, not so much.

Day 22
Jason is a voracious reader - takes after me!

Day 21
Jess likes to watch tv with me at night, especially when Mike is working. She usually falls asleep and then I move her to her bed.

Day 20
I've always enjoyed going to the library. As a kid, I spent hours at the Melrose library. Here's a picture of the Plymouth Public Library.

Day 19

Bluejay in snowy tree outside our window.

Day 18

I've driven by this place for years whenever I had to go to Carver (never heard of Carver? I hadn't either until I moved to Plymouth). After church, Jess, my mom and I tried it out for tea. We ordered the tea service which was good although the sandwiches were a little heavy for it. The desserts were really yummy! Jess got a mini cheeseburger which was one of the best cheeseburgers I've ever had.

Day 17
A glimpse at Project 365. I'm not an organized scrapper - what a shock!

Day 16
Unos with my coworkers. We had an awesome time!

Day 15
It was bitter cold out and all that sounded good was soup so Jess and I headed over to Panera's. She ate an entire bowl of chicken noodle soup and I had the creamy tomato with asiago croutons. Yummmm!!!!!

Day 14

Dinner at the Radisson. Jess ate baked brie with spiced poached pear along with my wax beans and broccolini. This child is very adventurous and will definitely not be a cheap date!

Day 13

Dinner at Red Robin. Jason isn't quite as tolerant of my taking pictures as he used to be hence the look I'm getting with the eyeroll.

Day 12

Jack and J.J. my 2 furbabies. They chase each other, wrestle and love to snuggle together.

Day 11

It snowed starting last night and through early afternoon today. Jason and Jess had a great time throwing snowballs, sledding and making snow angels.

Day 10

No rest for a teacher! I took a class on penguins today to get some ELA PDP's for my recertification. The class was 5 hours but flew by. Here's a quilt we made after hearing "Tacky the Penguin" and "The Little Penguin".

Day 9

Dressy Bessie was my doll when I was little. It's wonderful to see her being loved and played with again. Jess loves to zipper Bessie's clothes but the buttons frustrate her.

Day 8

On the mornings Mike gets out of work, Jess comes to school with me and Mike picks her up there. Jess loves playing with the toys in my room and coloring. She looks like such a big girl here!

Day 7

Dinner at Long Horn Steakhouse. My mom, the kids and I had planned on eating at the Radisson but their dining room was closed so we drove up to Pembroke and ate at the Long Horn. Jess loved the cow on the wall but wanted to know why it didn't talk like the moose at Bugaboo. The walls had interesting weavings on them.

Day 6

Well, we didn't get it done before Christmas but no time is a bad time to make a gingerbread house. Jess loved spreading the frosting on the roof.

Day 5

Kids' tv shows promoting healthy eating? Jess loves to watch the Wonder Pets on Nickelodeon. Whenever the Wonder Pets save an animal, they celebrate by eating celery. Now it's one of Jess's favorite snacks, especially with peanut butter.

Day 4

My mom, Jess and I went to the Dunbar Tea Room in Sandwich, MA. We had a wonderful lunch.

Day 3

We had an entertainment center in our living room that was huge. We got it for free when our neighbors moved. It took up so much space that we decided we needed to break down and get something a little smaller. The tv stand doesn't photograph well but it looks nice in our living room and doesn't take up quite as much space.

Day 1

New Year's Day 2009 - Mike had a band gig. I took the kids to Hearth and Kettle for breakfast. They each chose a special drink to celebrate the New Year. Jason had a chocolate shake and Jess had her first Shirley Temple. She's like me and doesn't like the marashino cherries.

Day 2

Jess and I spent the day with Lynn and Ciara. We went to the Burlington Mall and rode the glass elevator. Afterward we ate at the Cheesecake Factory.
