Friday evening we are free. I'm thinking of a simple dinner of pasta with sauce and garlic toast. After that, we will most likely settle in for a cozy evening of games and movies.
Saturday we have Mass in the late afternoon. After that, we are heading to my sister Margie's house to celebrate Christmas with her, her husband, and their new puppy Cocoa! We had planned on getting together earlier, but the twenty four hour stomach flu had other plans. We celebrate with them every year at their house with pizza, wings, and presents. She has the coziest Christmas house ever!
Sunday is a quiet day here. Well, for some of us. Steve and Rhett are heading to Pittsburgh to the Steeler's playoff game! The rest of us will put on our jerseys and cheer them on from here. I'm thinking some good football food would be fun...maybe taco dip, stromboli, and brownies. : )
That's what we have planned for this weekend. And here are a few pictures of the past few weeks here in our country home.
Madison snapped this precious picture on Christmas Eve as Flynn helped Nicolas make his delicious coleslaw salad.
Our Peyton Rose was surprised with her Christmas gift this year.
She was so surprised and so very thankful.
Next up...the permit test!
Santa brought perhaps the best present ever for my little Flynn.
If you've read here for any amount of time, you know about her love of all things Cinderella.
One thing she always mentioned is that she could never find anything with Cinderella's "cleaning" outfit...
Santa must have known, because this was under the tree for her.
And she was thrilled!
She and Nicolas worked with the other kids and prepared a delicious meal from Flynn's Disney Princess cookbook...
And it was delicious.
Madison and I have enjoyed several days of afternoon tea together.
And I am happy.
In other news...
I got my hair cut.
And it feels sooo much better.
For some reason, the front was much shorter than the back.
Madison encouraged me to do it,
And even went with me.
My hairdresser is wonderful, and did a great job.
I used to take Madison to the hairdresser, and now?
She takes me!
Who is watching The Bachelor?
Come on. You can admit it!
We have a date with Nick every Monday night.
My friend Heather comes over and we watch his "journey to find love" together.
And to watch my friend Chris Harrison tell us that "This is the final rose tonight."
Have a cozy winter weekend, my friends!
