Twas the week before Christmas and all 'round this place, this mama was scrambling, and trying to make haste!!!
Yep the week before Christmas, I am excited, and well not as stressed as years passed and trying hard not to wallow in my sadness as its another christmas without my daddy. I am doing better this year, I am almost done, I've got a few more things to bake a few things to pick up and then well it is what it is and I've turned my focus to Christ and my children where it should have been all along and I've come to the conclusion that if my heart is unburdened because I know I've put Jesus as a priority and my children above all else then I'm good. And I gotta tell you it is so freeing. I am not worried about what this relative or that relative thinks about the gift I'm giving. I am not worried at all. It is what it is and I can't change people so there's no point in my being miserable if it doesn't go exactly like a Hallmark commercial you know??
This year I have put my focus on Jesus is the reason for the season. I've done what I can to be sure that my children will have a nice enjoyable Christmas and that doesn't mean I've bought them the latest and greatest whatnot because I haven't.
In years past I've been too caught up with what people mostly my relatives think of me. This year I am doing my best not to care what other's think of me. My heart is light with burden but oh so full of blessings!!! God is so good!!!
Ok so now on to my menu:
Last night we ate out because we went to see the Christmas lights at the park and then went to eat with my mom afterwards, It was nice being able to spend time with her and the hubs and the kids like that I really enjoyed it!!
Tonight the kids have play practice for the Church Christmas play right after school, I'll be making nachos for dinner, quick easy and a hit with my kiddos!!
Wednesday I think I am going to make Cube steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and applesauce
Thursday is the Boy Scout Court of Honor, no idea what it is but we were invited, both of our boys are cub scouts so we are going, and they are serving dinner so we will take a dish to go with that.
