The weekend was a blur...

I've been fighting a bad virus for the past 5 days. Now that I am prone to migraines, it keeps setting off horrible headaches. The weekend was pretty much a waste for me - I didn't get any of the Christmas projects done that I had planned, and I don't know how I'm going to get caught up. I didn't even go to the Farmers' Market, and it was the last chance I had to do so before Christmas.

Saturday was all about Anna anyway, and her big Christmas ballet recital. It was wonderful, and all her hard work paid off. There were two shows - one we all watched with my parents at 2pm, and another at 7 pm. I had volunteered to help backstage for the second show, and it was fun helping the little and big ballerinas with their costume changes, and to see the funny backstage antics. I was completely tapped out by the end of the show, though, and slinked out of there without helping with the set breakdown.

In the show there were mice making cookies. They added two raisins and an egg into the batter:Sadly, one of the raisins fell doing her cartwheel in the first show, and fractured her radius and ulna! Anna was overwhelmed with sympathy for her. The injured dancer did return to at least watch the second show.

Anna also had parts as a "bead" and a "China doll."
I felt pretty rotten today but managed to help the kids make one small batch of cookies, as Colin needs to bring some to his class party on Tuesday.
Is there anything better than licking the bowl?

She's the prettiest egg I've ever seen. And the only thing better than licking the bowl is licking the beaters ;) Hope you feel better soon.

I can't wait to see the videos from the recital! She looks great in those costumes.
I love licking the bowl, too. My favorite is brownie mix. Mmmm...

Oh, I forgot to say, I'm sorry you're feeling rotten. I've been knocked down by bronchitis here, but starting to feel better. I'll help you catch up with holiday stuff when I arrive. I can even go to the Farmers Market for you!
