I'm tired.... its been a busy, hectic weekend... is everyones weekend like this the closer it gets to Christmas? But its been full of fun as well - even amidst all the running...
Our Committed Couples group came over to our house on Friday night. We decided with how hard Christmas is on everyone financially anymore - we were going to do the Chinese Christmas thing, but the saving way - all gifts had to come from the Dollar Tree.... We had no idea how it was going to turn out. In the end - it was hilarious - full of funny gifts - from everything from a turkey baster, to a set of "Gross Practical Jokes" (which my husband ended up taking), to a nice pedicure set I got (Who can get enough toe nail clippers), to a bag of "Stink Bombs" - our youth minister got those - the kids need to be on their guard! - to Silly Puddy, Window Cleaners, a knife, & reindeer antlers - (see the cute couple? that's our Youth Minister or aka Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation... you cant see it - but he has one the white shoes as well!!!!
Its just the best group of people.... so glad to spend some time with them. One of our couples were sick - darn stomach flu is going around fierce - so we ended up just playing games for the night.... GIRLS WON...actually the boys won one game too but GIRLS WON sounds so much better!
And look at this - me - Mrs. Dont ever Cook - found an easy recipe off another blog & made these... too simple - just Hershey kisses & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, & 8 minutes... they were delicious!!!
Tonight was the Children's Play at our church.... is there anything cuter than little angels, sheep, donkeys & Mary & Joseph - all under 3 feet tall? There's nothing that can pack a church more than these little kiddos! But it was such a fun time hanging out with the kids from youth & laughing with them.... if you dont know the kids in your youth at church - get to know them - they are an amazing age that have such ideas & such personalities.... you'll be blessed!
So tomorrow-off to try & do more shopping... trying to sneak & get Ricky's done while I can shop without him.... the only problem - what to get him? UGH!
Have a great Monday everyone!
