Weekends Make Me Happy!

Pepper got in bed with Snapper sometime during the night which resulted in us getting to sleep until 8:30. Blissful! I am thoroughly enjoying this mid-morning date with Facebook and blogs. Then I get to take my camera out to The Old Mill again for another photoshoot with some friends. 2 kids, sibling pics, and a family portrait! It's a balmy 35 degrees outside, so they will be jeans, sweaters, and scarves pictures. I love that! This afternoon Snapper has the dress rehearsal for her play tomorrow! Her first time on stage! It will be such fun. After rehearsal, I'm coming home to "Lord of the Rings," a cup of hot chocolate, and a mountain of Christmas cards to stuff. Sigh! I love this time of year and all the fun little things I get to do! If I finish the Christmas cards this afternoon, I'm going to start wrapping presents. I want to have my Spokane and California boxes in the mail by Friday.

Tomorrow after church I'm thinking I want to start baking cookies. I have 4 recipes for this year, and my neighbors all get to sample them. So does the mailman and the kids' Sunday School teachers. Yes, lots of fun!

For those of you who have been following my friend Beverly's leukemia story, she had her bone marrow transplant on Thursday. There was a lot of concern that her body would reject the marrow, but she is doing great! She hasn't had any concerning symptoms, and we are praising the Lord. She will be in the hospital until after New Year's, though. Thanks for praying for her. Please continue those prayers because she needs them, and will need them even more as Christmas approaches.

Alrighty! I'm signing out. Leave a comment and tell me what you're doing this weekend! I'd love to hear about it.

SO good to hear about Beverly!! Praise God!

Sounds like your weekend is going to be a lovely one. We're all sick over here... yep. The nice cold found Kara and me as well, just not as bad as it found Jason, Ethan or Rachel. They're all very sick.
Hopefully we'll be on the mend soon!

I love weekends too, because I can actually BE at home. We're gearing up for our Christmas decorating and deciding what craft things we want to do. After being gone last weekend today is a day of getting caught up. It feels great!

I love weekends too! I don't like when they are filled with Gabe working on the basement, however. Can't wait to get that room done so we can relax a bit!
