Saturday Madison has a retreat day for her Confirmation which is coming up in March. It concludes with Mass in the late afternoon, so we will be attending that and then heading home. Peyton and I are making Barbecue meatballs and pasta salad for dinner. I have a pile of ironing that refuses to do itself, so I think I know what I will be doing after dinner.
Sunday can be summed up in two words...brunch and football. I know my life is ultra exciting...you know with all the lazy days spent lounging and watching football and eating...but that is what we do. And that is what I will miss one day, so that is how we spend our time. Together. : )
I hope your winter weekend is full of the things you love, whatever they may be. Thanks for visiting! I am always glad you stop by! : )
We were able to take the trip to visit my father last weekend...and someone always gets sleepy on the way!
And look how well he is doing! This picture is actually one my sister sent me from a party they had this week. He looks sooo much better! That right there is a look I know from my sweet father. : )
Thanks for all your prayers my friends. Keep 'em coming. I know that his Dementia will never get better, but quality of life is what we pray for...and right now our prayers are being answered. : )
One more pic of Madison and her bestie Jessica before the dance. Madison had a great time, and Alan brought her right home after. Amen.
These are my new favorite things...Halos. If you haven't tried them, you must. I insist. You're welcome.
I did put a pot of sauce on the Stove Sunday morning, and Peyton and Steve made tons of meatballs. Fr. Jim came and we had a great visit. It was weird to realize that he and I are the same age. Like, we graduated in the same year...I guess I just always think of priests as being older, you know? So I guess that means I am older than I think, right? Does any of this even make sense?!
Anyway...we had spaghetti and meatballs with this easy peasy salad...
fresh Italian bread from the bakery...
and the best chocolate cake ever...
which I served like this because I like to pretend I am working in a fancy restaurant, and because I watch way too much Food Network programming.
This little guy likes snuggling on my lap these cold winter evenings. : )
January's cupcake delivery from our sweet little bakery did not disappoint...
And because there just isn't quite enough food in this one...I'll finish off with Flynn's reaction to the dinner surprise Steve brought back from a business meeting this week. No more words needed. : )
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
