We've enjoyed a fantastic weekend of friends and fellowship with a bit of Christmas shopping thrown in the middle. Between Bible Study Friday evening and the "Welcome Home for the Holidays" dinner for Lisa and Jason, we've served dinner to almost 60 people this weekend. This is my favorite way to spend the holidays!
A few years ago, we started the tradition of the children drawing each other's name and picking out a gift at the Dollar Store. They absolutely love it! We're hoping this starts the name-drawing early so they never have to buy gifts for 20+ nieces and nephews:-) They love giving each other gifts, and this is a very inexpensive way for the little ones to give something.
Except for shopping for Christmas dinner, I'm all done with going out! Phew! And almost everything is wrapped. Bryan and I have gotten so quick with wrapping, I'm thinking this could be a second career - if we had more time!
As we prepare for the biggest birthday party of the year, we will be enjoying:
Monday - Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches, Mashed Potatoes, Corn
Tuesday (Bryan Night Meeting, 4-H Horse Judging) - Chicken Barley Soup, Veggies and Dip
Wednesday - Broccoli Summer Sausage
Thursday - Cheeseburger Soup in Bread Bowls (annual tradition)
Friday - Christmas Dinner starring Ham!
Saturday - Christmas Leftovers!!
