Friday night had a wonderful evening out with friends. Each month some friends of ours (about 6 couples) get together for dinner. We call it our travelling dinner party and the host decides on the main course and the guests bring all of the sides, etc. We played guitar hero(my first time) and it was so much fun! I am totally hooked!
Saturday we went Christmas shopping and then just spent the evening home. In the middle of the night the electric went out. No heat, no electric, no television and gasp! No internet! Also, the saddest thing of all is the beautiful tree in my front yard split in half from the ice. What a mess! I am really sad about it. I hope that the rest of the tree will recover but I seriously doubt that it will.
Sunday, went to church and when we got home our friend Tim, was in our yard with a chain saw ready to help us cut the branches up. Now that is what I call a good friend. And, by now the electric was back on. Yea! Sunday evening we went to a concert that was sponsored by the Diocese of Harrisburg. The group led by Martin Doman is awesome. We really enjoy his work and miss him as he used to be the music director at our church. Check out his web site Martin Doman, you can even buy his cd's. He really is wonderful.
OK, so then Monday, went up to the kids school and wrapped 300 + books to give out to the students for Christmas. Then came home and wrapped gifts for our friends and family.
That brings me to today. Today I spent the day baking Christmas cookies.
Are we having fun yet?
So of course the rest of the week will be taken up with preparing for Christmas, baking more cookies, going to a couple of parties, all that fun stuff.
