Weekend Plans

The first weekend of 2013 is here, and we are still celebrating Christmas! Friday night we are having my parents up for a double celebration. First...Christmas. Because Flynn had a severe case of the flu, the doctor advised us against having my parents up because of their age. So we will be exchanging gifts with them. Friday is also my father's 78th birthday! I am having pizza and wings, a favorite of his, and am making a pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing to celebrate.

Saturday during the day is free. Madison will be should be studying for midterms, and the rest of us will be taking it easy! Saturday evening we will attend Mass, then head down to my sister's for a Christmas with her and her husband. We usually do this Christmas week, but I am glad we rescheduled. It gave the children something to look forward to as they went back to school.

Sunday we have nothing planned. I hope to start my scrapbooking. Or at least organize my supplies on the table to at least fool myself into thinking I started my scrapbooking. If it is not too cold, Steve may take the older kids sledding out behind the house. They are hoping he gets out the snowmobile too! Steve and I make a great team. He is all about outdoor activities, and I am in charge of clothing preparation and refreshments! In other words, he goes out and I stay in, nice and warm! Dinner Sunday will be a yummy lasagna roll-up recipe I got from my blogger friend Patty. The recipe is here.
I plan on having fresh bread and fruit salad too.

Well, that is our weekend. I hope yours is happy and cozy and fun, whatever your plans may be!

Madison and Ryan and some fun winter photos...

I love this one!

Kirby enjoyed the kids being home!

Someone is feeling much better, but she still gets sleepy during the day!


  1. Love all the pics! Merry Christmas and I am happy cute little Flynn is feeling better!

  2. Oh Flynn, you are just as cute as can be matching with your bitty baby! Billie Jo, that sounds like a lovely weekend. Have a wonderful time Celelbrating Christmas with your parents and your sister. I think it's nice when there's a bit more Christmas around after the big day is over. Maybe this time Flynn will be able to be a part of the fun! Enjoy the staying in part of sledding :)
