Wow! Alot has taken place since my last blog entry. I wish so bad that I was good at taking pictures but, I am not. So, here are a few things that we have done and I hope I can post some pictures later. One slight problem was I couldn't find my camera for a few days. Since we have had sooooo many things stolen in the last yr. when I can't find something I automatically assume it was stolen. Well, I forgot that Jenny had borrowed it! So,everything we did I was asking people to take pictures for me. Now I have to somehow get those.
One of the great things we did was we went to Yuletide Celebration on the Circle. It was totally awesome. Sandi Patty was back and the African children's choir sang. It was so moving from the first song!!! I would love to go again but it is a little pricey!
I have been trying to finish up Christmas shopping. Jeff and I went Sat. to try to finish up the kids stuff. I even had a list and we just didn't find everything. We had fun though and ate at Don Pablos so that was worth the trip!
Our kids had their christmas program on Fri. night. I had volunteered my help with Jaida's class. I didn't do alot but it still took some time with practice, stage etc. They all did such a good job.
This week is pretty full too. We had practice for church program last night we have small group Wed. night, Jaida has her very first piano recital Thurs. night and in between all of that---------I need to finish Christmas shopping, Rachel and I get to decorate tables for the Church Christmas dinner(notice I said get?!)so we need to shop for that, I need to wrap Christmas presents, of course my house needs cleaned, and a million one other things but I love the season and all the busyness that it brings!
Sunday is our church program with caroling that evening. So, there will be cookies to bake and things to make. The kids have a practice on Sat. with cookies to bake for that. WHEW! I'm tired just thinking about all of it. And, here I sit blogging, guess I better get up and get something done!!
Merry Christmas!

Leah said...

Julie, I agree with LaDonna - on both counts!! Love Don Pablos and don't forget to breathe through all this!!!

I know what you mean. I was thinking I have something to do every day this week except Thurs. and then my mom asked me to go to the girls recital. So....there goes my one night with nothing to do but relax. Oh well I guess thats just the way life is sometimes.

Wow...I guess we are all in the same boat! ha! I absolutely love all the fun things that we do around Christmas...It can get a little hectic, though! Maybe we need to get snowed in so we can't go anywhere! (We would love to go to that Yuletide celebration with Sandy Patty sometime...I bet that is awesome!) Merry Christmas!

I have been so looking forward to this week so I can focus on the things I love...wrapping presents and baking. But I haven't been feeling the best and in effort to keep from getting REALLY sick and ruining my family's holiday, I've opted to laze around and try to get on top of things. I DID wrap some presents yesterday and since we got a skinny tree this year, it's already filled to the max underneath (I think I've figured out how to make a slim Christmas look big! lol!) so I don't really know what to do with the other gifts right now anyway.
