SHE'S ALIVE!

I'm still here....and managing to keep my head above water, praise the Lord!  We had a wonderful rehearsal at church last night as we continue the work at putting our Christmas program together.  Our choir is such a blessing, and we are so thankful for each and every one!  

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.

Happy birthday to Cody. I'm glad he is feeling better. It would be no fun to be sick on your birthday.

I don't think you are nuts for doing crafts. He is 7 so his friends should be old enough to do well with them!
