Time gets away from me!!

I really need to be better about updating my blog.

So much has happened in our lives that keeps us busy that before you know it, time just gets away from me.

So how about some updates???

We had a good thanksgiving, we ate with my side of the family at 12 on Thanksgiving day. The food was great!! We had Turkey, Ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, sweet potato casserole, saurkraut, Baked mac and cheese, deviled eggs, cranberry sauce, rolls, sweet tea, watergate salad, pumpkin roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake It was all sooo good!!
Usually we eat a lighter dinner with dh's gram on Thanksgiving night, but this year dh's gram was very sick and so we just came home, ate something quick for dinner and worked outside around the house. We had a bonfire and burned up all the limbs that fell when we had that first freak heavy snow storm in October. The kids had a ball!!

I did not fight any black friday crowds, instead I stayed home and did some shopping via internet.

Since then dh and I both have been really sick both with horrible sinus infections, Praise the Lord that we are on the mend, it was horrible to be that sick.

I was asked to bake a couple large cakes for a Eagle Scout Ceremony, which we were also invited to. I am really glad we went!!

I put together a christmas party for our cubscout pack, I had help from great friends and it was a nice time although poor Brady was sick and didn't get to go. Thank goodness for Granny ( my mom) who took care of him so I could put this all together for the scouts. So thankfull that whatever was ailing him, he has recovered from!! Poor fella was really sick!!

I am working getting Christmas gifts finished, either bought or made, I need to start wrapping.

This weekend the older scouts are going on a field trip per se and then afterwards we are all going to have dinner with some friends, so I need to plan out what I am making for that. Its going to be more of a just hang out and visit kind of dinner I think so I am for sure planning on making potato skins, they are always a hit, I just need to figure out what else to make. I think we will probably order pizza for the kids.

Busy busy busy thats just the order of things.

Oh and I can't believe I forgot the most important update of all...

On November 27th- the first day of Advent-
My Husband, my oldest son, my youngest son, our baby girl and I were all baptized and officially joined our church!! What an amazing day that was!! I can't believe how happy that has made me!! I so love our church and the people who attend there. I love having a church home!!!!

So I think that about does it for me for updates, time to get busy and get things accomplished!!!
Enjoy your day!! Even though its raining buckets, I will enjoy mine!!!
Blessings to you!!
