Isn't it great to have a list for the month whether you do all of it or not.Your upcoming weeks look like so much fun - but then, you girls always seem to be having a blast! :-) Glad FD gets to take more part in it this month.

I could've sworn Dec 1 is Teach Farmer Dad to Make Coffee Day?



Maybe so?

Cher Mere said...

I like imagining what you are going to do to commemorate those different days.

Nina said...

Zilla, lol! I wish my dh would learn how to make me a cup of coffee, bring it to me in the morning, wouldn't that be nice.

Kate, this might be a terribly uneducated question but why did so many states enter the Union in December?

Sounds like a great month. Enjoy those vacation days. ;)

Naomi said... have a whole month planned whereas I didn't even know it was dec lol.

i hope we're one of those playdates. i need my daughter to have new things to tell me about princess. b/c ya know i have to hear about her everyday all day.

I'm also declaring my b'day (Dec. 7) national Eat Way Too Much Chocolate Day. ;-)

Kate in NJ said...

Patrice- we will be watching Mary Poppins and I'm thinking of all kinds of fun
When I was little I loved him..
I called him.."Dick Dick Dyke" and in my family,

Sister S.P.- We'll see..LOL.

z- rotflmbo!! I have tried.

Cher- I'll try to keep you posted ;-)

Nina...from what I understand,
the first 13 states are considered "admitted" on the date that each ratified the Constitution .The others were then "admitted" (obviously later).

Nao- You Betcha! ;-)

Wendy- Duly Noted! ;-)

rae said...

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
