Had one of those ordinary but wonderful weekends. On Saturday morning hubby and I snuck out for breakfast and I had a coupon for our favorite place so that was a bonus. I had pumpkin pancakes. So very yummy!!! No calories I am sure.
After breakfast we went into HomeGoods where hubby patiently pushed the cart around while I went up and down the isles. I found a wonderful Le Creuset baking dish for my MIL. She is hard to buy for but I know she will love it. I also bought myself a new can opener. You could barely turn my old one. Isn't the color great?
We finally had a chance to celebrate hubby's birthday with his family on Saturday night. My MIL cooked a wonderful Mexican dinner so any night I don't have to cook is a good one. Q decorated daddy's card and by the time she was done it was unrecognizable as a card. I wish I would have shot a picture of that.
My 13 year old daughter has all of her gifts for her friends wrapped up. I just loved how neatly she did them.
She is so my daughter and as soon as she got home she started wrapping. She loves Christmas and all the rituals and decorating. She gets me and I get her.
In a bit we are off on a Sunday night to attend our church's Walk Through Bethlehem. It is a huge undertaking and wonderful event to see and experience the Christmas story in life size. Our 13 yr. old is working it this weekend so we will see her there and take Q to see all the animals. They even have a live camel. I will share pictures later this week. Have a wonderful week everyone. All my girls are out of school after this Tuesday so I am one excited mom. I can stay home and bake and finish up my wrapping. I am almost done but wrap my girl's stocking stuffers too and that takes some time to do that. I mentioned that I may stop doing that and my girl's acted like I was going to run over our dog on purpose so I will continue the tradition. My mom did it for us so I will carry on the torch. Makes the stockings extra fun so I can see why they like it.
