These Things I’ve Done by Rebecca Phillips


December was a pretty interesting month.

I finished up my first semester of college.  I ended up getting an A in all of my classes and currently have a 4.0 GPA.  I am very proud of that.  I worked my butt off this semester and it definitely showed in my grades.  I’ve been bored out of my mind though with not having any school work to do these last couple of weeks.  I’m looking forward to classes starting back next week.

Logan turned 10 years old this month.  Both of my babies are in double digits now.  That’s so hard to believe.  They’re growing up way too fast on me.  To celebrate, we took him out to dinner of his choice and a movie of his choice also.  He wanted to watch the Lego Ninjago movie.  It was actually pretty cute.

Chris had his first ever band concert this month also.  Me, Eric, Logan, and my parents went out to support him.  He was a little nervous but once he got up on the stage with everyone else, he was fine and didn’t have any problems at all.  Everyone did great!  His favorite song to perform was the entrance to Star Wars.  That was really cool to listen to.  Here he is in his concert uniform and his drumsticks 😉  (he is a percussionist/drummer)

Each year, I get both of the boys at least one new ornament to put up on the Christmas tree.  This year, they ended up with a bunch of them!

We got some snow in our area earlier this month as well.  We don’t get snow very often, so it was a special treat!  The boys went to this big open area near our house to get some sledding in.

We had a great Christmas.  Chris and Logan got a ton of gifts.  Their favorite things were their Pokemon figures and their Harry Potter merchandise, especially these Hogwarts House banners/flags. (Excuse the pajamas – they woke up early on Christmas morning and started opening gifts before they even got dressed – LOL!)

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so proud of myself. Hopefully I can pull it off again for this next semester lol!
      I don’t typically like Alice in Wonderland either but villain stories and re-tellings interest me so I decided to check it out.


  1. Oh my gosh kids grow to quickly. Mine just went 17 months. O_o I’ve also going to do a ornament a year for my son. My friend gifted him one his first christmas and last year we got him one ourselves. I think they’ll make great memories for him. 🙂 May 2018 be a great year for you!
