is what I've been to you, blog. Poor poor bloggie...are you hungry? Do you want a belly rub? Who's a good bloggie? Who is? You are!!!
OK, feel better now?
We've been busy? Not really. We've been lazy! That's more like it! And we've just been overwhelmed with Christmas ongoings and activities.
The past week included many things...lets begin.
the tree and decorations are up:
There was a shower for Sharon and baby Beau on Sunday:
for which I made finger sandwiches:
and Christy made a delicious punch!
OH yeah, and Brent brought home a dog on Friday...he found him on his jobsite, and fell head over heels in love with him. We are awaiting his owners to claim him, and NOT keeping him! :-) But he's cute and we're calling him Jack...and oh yes, he likes to wear sweaters.
And then there's this:
He's pretty cute. all of the time. It's sickening!!!
and just in case you don't believe me, PROOF:
Oh, and there was a staff Christmas party on Tuesday, and I made 4 pies. The same four I did for Thanksgiving, so I am kindof sick of the kitchen right now. SO sick, that I didn't even bake anything for our small group last night, something I do every week. Instead, I just put out a plate of Christmas goodies we've been collecting from alot of people!
We've been receiving lots of mail, Christmas cards, packages etc. And we've made a couple trips to the post office also, to mail off packages, and I have to again today. It sure is different getting used to celebrating Christmas away from family. It's hard, and the closer it gets, it's getting harder. But this too shall pass, and we will be with family again soon, hopefully February.
Ok. time to go get something done, like laundry, or dishes **shudder**, or, ya know, get dressed!!
Have a great weekend!
