Saturday is a quiet day here. We will attend early afternoon Mass and then come home to a favorite dinner...Turkey Soup. My sister and my mom are coming up to join us and stay as Steve and Rhett will be heading to camp early Sunday morning.
Sunday is our Christmas movie, game, and baking day. We have been spending the Sunday before Hunting season with my sister Margie and my mom for as long as I can remember. Sunday night we will order take out and then watch the Mid season finale of The Walking Dead. I can't believe we have to wait until February for it to return!
Monday is a day off. Rhett will be at Hunting camp so we worked ahead this week in order to complete the lessons for Monday. I usually spend this day putting everything back together after the long holiday weekend.
And there you have it. Our exciting plans for the holiday weekend. I hope yours is happy and yummy and cozy and safe, whatever your plans may be.
Madison's friend Justin...remember the one who cooked chicken in my backyard?...brought these beauties this past weekend...
so of course I used them to make a simple dinner of pasta with garlic and tomatoes. : )
This was the scene from my porch on Tuesday as the snow began to fall...
inside we were cozy as can be with some homemade cinnamon bread made especially for my Madison...The Birthday Girl. : )
Thank you all so much for the Happy Birthday wishes for my girl. She read them all and was so touched. : ) Here she is with a little helper opening her presents...
and I think they were happy with what was inside!
A new bag...pink of course. : )
Her Daddy...the best man in her life...brought her flowers and candy! : )
And she loved her teacup-teabag-teakettle necklace I found for her on Etsy. Tara...this reminds me of you! : )
What began 17 years ago...our four blessings...
We finished off Madison's special day with Blackberry pie...her favorite for years and years.
And thanks so very much for all your prayers for my dear sweet father. He was actually walking this week!!!! Keep 'em coming my friends!
