Hope you're able to stay warm these next few days. Will your brother help keep the wood stove burning, or is it all on you? Enjoy the few days off work and hopefully catching up on some of your writing.Lynne~
I'm glad you had a wonderful vacation and I hope to check out your pictures when I have time. I agree that one of the best perks of being on vacation is not having to cook, or even think
about meal planning.
I bet Little Man did enjoy the zoo. I, too remember when Steve Irwin died and how sad and unexpected it was. My kids got a kick out of watching his shows when they were little. Hope you enjoyed your church's Christmas tea in the park today.Sarah~
Did you officially finish your Christmas shopping for Jason? I've bought hubs several TV series as past gifts, and they're always shows I know we'll enjoy watching together. It's nice to have the entire series on DVD so you can watch it at your leisure, without having to wait for the next Netflix delivery.Suzan~
Good luck with your continued studies, and your new evening class. That must be gratifying to enjoy what you're studying and know that it's the right career path for you. I hope to check out the videos on Robsessed after Christmas, and good luck in the contest. How was Christmas dinner at your grandmother's?Marielle~
Good luck as you continue with the wallpaper removal and painting. We look forward to seeing pictures of your new house. I'm sure someone more technically inclined would know better than me, but I've uploaded some of my pictures to my Photobucket account in the past, and was then able to post them here to share with you. I hope you're able to take at least a small break from the painting, moving, and unpacking to celebrate Christmas with your family over the next few days. Amanda Beth~
My FIL is feeling better; thanks for asking. It was a pretty severe case of bronchitis and a touch of pneumonia, and the IV antibiotics and IV fluids seems to have helped. We're only staying with him and my MIL overnight, so hopefully that won't be too overwhelming. Are you missing your guy as much as you expected, and when will he return from his trip? Susie~
Did you find a Christmas tree yet, and is SonnyBoy happy to be home for Christmas break?
Hello to Songbird, Jaclyn, Austin, Caryn,
and anyone else I've missed.
Our choir is presenting our Christmas program at both worship services tomorrow morning, and hubs and the kids and I will drive to his parents in east Tennessee immediately afterwards to celebrate Christmas with them. We're driving back Monday afternoon directly to our Christmas Eve service, and I'll be busy unpacking clothes and the kids' loot from Nana and Papaw's
, making cornbread dressing, marinating pork tenderloin, and setting up "Santa" stuff once the kids are in bed, Monday night.
I wanted to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a restful and blessed holiday, just in case I don't have a chance to post again before Christmas Day. We'll have a relaxing morning here with the kids and partaking of yummy french toast, bacon, and sausage Tuesday morning, and spend the rest of Christmas Day celebrating at my Mom's with extended family....and then it's back to work for me the rest of the week. You are all such a blessing in my life and make my life better, and thanks for being the amazing siblings that you are.
