|Erik is Snape|
December flew by in a whirlwind. I'm still not sure where it went. We had 2 birthday parties in December. Sarah had a Harry Potter birthday party complete with a scavenger hunt for horcruxes, potions class, painting wands, and pizza and cake. The kids loved the party and I did too (I'm not a muggle!) Erik was a convincing Snape as well!

Obviously I created a spreadsheet and calculated that Dairy Queen had the best drink and especially best taste/prize/oz
|Diary Queen||$ 4.99||24||$ 0.21||1.875||1||15.03|
|Starbucks||$ 5.25||26||$ 0.20||2.500||2||12.38|
|Tim Hortons||$ 3.49||16||$ 0.22||2.750||3||10.32|
|McDonalds||$ 3.49||22||$ 0.16||3.625||4||8.67|
|Dunkin Donuts||$ 5.49||32||$ 0.17||4.250||5||4.37|

Donatos won this taste test but it was a difficult choice.
As expected, Matthew needs glasses. He actually needed glasses at the beginning of the year but the eye doctor said that he would probably lose them. Now the school called me and said he really needed glasses. We took him to the eye doctor and his eyes were pretty bad. So he got his first pair of glasses today. He was so excited and said he looks smart now. He also said "I think this is how God sees things." SO CUTE! Then at dinner he ate all his dinner (much to my amazement) and said it was because he could finally see his food.
