We had a busy, fun-filled weekend. It seems I haven't posted in forever but it just seems that the month of December seems to fly by in a wink.
Friday night Alysia was in the Madrigal Feast with her choir. The entertainment for the night was wonderful and it was well worth the $15 ticket. This is a big production that the high school puts on every year and I am sure that it is one that I will be attending for the next few years. The yummy food consisted of wassail, DELICIOUS homemade whole wheat bread, ham, almondine green beans, fried potatoes, and spiced apples. The dessert was a strawberry tart. From what I ate of my meal it was yummy. My daughter didn't get to eat before hand though so she kept coming up to the table as she was serving and getting bites of food for her and her friends. The choir teacher's eye caughter her once but she survived the evening on little food and lots of singing. Her friends were glad I was there too to share the food.
Saturday I spent the day cleaning the house and runnign some errands and then had the company of Ashley and Brenna that evening. Brenna brought over a gingerbread train for them to do and I bought a gingerbread house. There were a lot of laughs for sure. The train ended up crooked somehow and my chimney kept falling off my roof no matter how much icing I used to try to get it to stay.
Today I spent the day cleaning up from the mess we made last night and then did some more Christmas shopping and clothes shopping for our Christmas card pics. It is my goal to get the pics of the family done this week so that I can get the cards done and in the mail. I'm just trying to decide on the best spot to take them. We are going to take them at our new house and I am deciding on the front porch, although I need it to look a little more Christmasy or in front of the tree. We may do both and see which turns out best.
It looks like this week will prove to be busy like the past few. We have a birthday party to plan for a 15 year old and all of the other obligations that seem to pop up during this month. Somewhere in there I'll get some baking done.
