Already? And it's only Friday. I know, I know...I usually save a weekend wrap up and my little "potpourri" posts for the end of the weekend. But my feet already feel like it's Sunday night. Ha! I've been on them working, preparing for Christmas at both home and the church.
Any pastor or pastor's wife can tell you there's always a looooooot to get ready at any church for Christmas. Right now we're getting ready for a Christmas Eve/Christmas Day outreach that we're doing as well as our usual Christmas Eve Communion, not to mention the weekend service. And most pastors (me included) are doing it with a shoestring crew of those who are still in town. Every year at this time I'm longing for the day after Christmas when I can just sleep in, stay in my jammies all day and zone out. Some years I get away with that and other years, Savanna says, "come on Mom, let's go out and look for after Christmas sales!" :)
Speaking of Savanna, her dance recital was tonight at the high school. It was my delight to take a break from baking pumpkin butterscotch cookies, peanut butter cookies and sugar cookies all day for the church outreach, to go to her show.
Hopefully she won't read my blog tonight. She will give me a sharp, "oh motherrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"if she sees these photos and what I've done to them. What can I say? If I didn't do something to point her out, how else would you know who she is in these pictures if I didn't tell you? I mean really. If you are a reader from Singapore or Peoria, you would have no idea. But now, you know...
All the kids did a great job! We're so proud. Don't don't tell Savanna you saw these photos. She used to have this as her Facebook cover photo:
She's in that phase where everything I do is embarrassing. I take it in stride.
After the recital Larry and I had some more Christmas items to pick up, and I'm back to making peanut butter cookies, at almost midnight. Our family is keeping a small plate but the majority are being made for trays for people in our city who have to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
This was a nice blog break, but it's back to cookie making for me...g'night.
