In other news, Cody will be turning 7 on Monday (I can't believe that!) and we're having a small party with some friends of his tomorrow. He was under the weather on Tuesday but appears to have made a full recovery. He chose the Wall-E theme (we just saw that movie recently and we all thought it was adorable) and we've combined it with a "space" theme so it should be "far out!" Don't worry, I'll upload pictures soon....
I have stuffed goody bags, made cupcakes, wrapped a few birthday presents and prepared the space ships the kids are making with two paper plates and a paper bowl on top (yes, I am having them make a couple crafts...am I nuts?). Tonight we head to rehearsal for our final countdown to our weekend worship services. Tomorrow, let the games begin!
If you're still reading, thank you. If you're totally bored, I understand.
Moving on...I wrapped up lessons today and now feel like I can finally focus on Christmas. It only took me 11 days, but that's OKAY!
I hope you all are savoring the best parts of this season and enjoying the remembrance of our Savior's birth. It is such a special time, and it's so easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of the holiday season. I am ready to slow down and drink it in.
I hope you are too.
