I hope you are all enjoying this special holiday
with your family and friends.
I have not been online much, as it was the end of the school term so busy...busy...busy...
Here is review of our week of Christmas preparations.
Emily's last final was the 18th. Since then, she has been at home...being the 'stay-at-home' daughter. She has kept busy during the day baking cookies, shopping, & making dinner for us...who had work and school. This was delicious...it is Sausage-and-Mussel Spaghetti from my Rachel Ray magazine. It is one of her 30 minute meals and well worth the effort.
The dining table had been converted to a gift wrapping center for about 3 days. Do you think Lucy thinks that she is hiding and we can't see her??
Emily wrapped most of my gifts too...while Line enjoyed some after-school Party Mix.
On our last day of school, Emily was our delivery girl for my Advisory Group's pizza party. I have Sophomores...and the boys were eager to help her...need I say more?
And finally, home for the holidays. We are missing Amy, since she wasn't able to come. Isn't Skype the best?!
All this cooking, baking, cleaning, shopping, wrapping, decorating and socializing has been exhausting...
And Christmas eve...time for family to gather for worship services, good food and fellowship. We enjoyed Elegant Wild Rice Soup with other holiday appetizers.
