If I were to write a Christmas letter, it would probably include some or all of the following:
January: This is my least favorite month. So it is not surprising I don’t actually have pictures from it. I will say my greatest accomplishment was probably making a sweet Winter mix CD for me and my sister. Oh wait, I found a picture. Twins Fest. New best friend: Kevin Slowey.
March: Co-hosted my first baby shower (my in reference to the hosting, not to the having a baby. I do not have a baby. I hope that is clear). Met movie stars at Hope’s annual Film Fest. Wrapped up another season of leading Bible study. I was introduced to mini cones of joy. They are a life-changing snack. Snow melted. We began vacation planning.
April: Dyed a lot of Easter eggs. Started the Twins season. In the snow. Remembered why I don’t try and make my own caramel. Hosted Cupcake Camp. I got a smart board in my classroom (it has since been
taken away shared with others). I got lost a lot.
July: Spinster Sister Vacation Take Two: I put my years of studying German and Julie Andrews to good use in visiting Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic to see the beauty of Europe and the sights of The Sound of Music.
See you soon, 2012.
