Friday night was our church’s annual Ladies Christmas Tea. Here is a picture of the Mistress of Ceremonies doin’ her thang.
Yep, that’s me!
We had tons of great food, an interesting speaker, and then the always hilarious White Elephant gift exchange. Did I mention tons of great food?
On Saturday we got up bright and early to go hunt down our Christmas tree. It was FR-E-E-E-E-E-E-ZING, but we had fun.
The baby was a real trooper. She tromped though the trees and didn’t even want to be carried.
We finally found The Tree.
We shared the outing with our long-time friends. The kids had a blast. As did our husbands. (That’s Husband pretending to saw his friend’s head off. Dorks.)
On Saturday night my in-laws took us out for dinner at a local inn. I feasted on filet mignon and mashed potatoes and a really smooth
Cabernet. Service was impeccable. That is, if you appreciate having
your water glass refilled every time you take a sip. I’m not kidding.
It got to the point that it was downright comical, and by the end of the night my mother-in-law and I were giggling every
time they came by to top off our glasses.
Sunday morning we woke up to a light dusting of snow. How festive!
In the afternoon we put the ornaments on the tree. I had a lot of help.
Sometimes TOO much help.
The weather was windy and icy outside, but inside it was warm and cozy by the fireplace.
While we worked on the tree, we listed to the new Michael W. Smith Christmas CD that came in the mail on Friday — It’s A Wonderful Christmas. See the link in the sidebar for more information. You can listen to a sampling on the website. The first track is my favorite.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
