4 day weekend - for Jason

Jason has the next 4 days off from work -- right now, he is asleep. Samuel is asleep. I do believe the other 3 are awake and all downstairs playing. I do hope that they will keep quiet and not wake the other 2. Stephanie just came in and was about to whine about something but I stopped her. There is no need to start that way on a Saturday morning.

I should be going to take a shower so that I can get ready to go help out with free gift wrapping this morning at 10am. We do this as a church every year. I haven't been able to the last few years but I am looking forward to doing it today. I will help out for a couple of hours but then I will have to take Stephanie to a birthday party at 2pm. Fun. Roller skating is where the party is at. It's for her friend Isabel.

We currently have no plans for this evening -- but that is ok. We probably just need to hang out at home and do nothing! This month is so busy as it is. :)

Tomorrow of course is church -- and then I have choir practice at 4pm. I need to listen to my song some more today. I just now put it on headphones so that I can listen to the whole thing. I really so pray that this will go well. We have not had a lot of practice time (the choir) and not many are being positive about it. Please pray for us. That this will minister to even just one person. It's going to be performed next week ...

Then not sure what we will do Monday and Tuesday while Jason is at home. I need to talk to him about that and see if he wants to do something. We might go do some shopping ... or something! It will be nice to have him at home. Of course, he will then have to go to work the rest of the week! :)

Draft autosaved at 8:36 AM -- and now it's 6:01pm! YIKES!

Today -- went to wrap gifts (slow) ... went to a birthday party - went to the Christian bookstore - went to Best Buy -- we are now home for the evening! I guess I will just have to post this ... and update more some other time --

I was given this award and I treasure it ... I would like to pass it on to 5 other people. Choosing just 5 people is very difficult for me -- as there are so many people in my life that are deserving of such an award ... but I will try to limit this post to just 5. If you are not mentioned, do not think it's because you don't mean that much to me! :)

1. Jason -- yes, he is my husband -- but he is also my closest friend. I love him more and more each day .. he is there for me through the good times and the bad times. He loves me for me .. and will do anything for me. He means the world to me and I don't know what I would do without him in my life. I am thankful for the blessing the Lord has given me for bringing him in my life.

2. Melanie -- a dear friend whom I miss so much. We don't get to talk as much as we would like. We have not seen each other in person in a very long time -- but when we do get in touch with each other, it's as if it was just yesterday that we saw each. We just pick up right where we left off .. she is family to me! I love her dearly. We have always been able to share everything with each other. Easy to talk to and confide in.

3. Rachael -- another friend that I miss dearly and wish so much that she lived in GA again .. but I know that she is happy where she is -- and that soon we will get together again. A person that I can talk to about anything.

4. BigSis -- Lisa -- My sister, my friend. I never truly understood the bond that we had until I moved away. Yes, we faught like crazy growing up .. but as we got older, that all changed. We have grown closer and I miss her like crazy -- wish that we lived closer to each other -- wish we could talk to each other more often -- wish we could just "hang out" (or perhaps it's the distance that has brought us so close?) LOL. I love her with all my heart ...

5. Lisa W - a person who I can always count on to make me smile even on those horrible days. We share many things with each other ... our children play so well together ... and I treasure her friendship. She has been there for me in many ways ... and I am thankful that the Lord brought her into my life. I am truly blessed.

Again, I say -- if you are not on this list of 5 people, that does not mean that you are not a wonderful and amazing friend .. you are all blessings from the Lord and I am grateful for all of you .. and all that you mean in my life ... we are all brought together for a reason -- the Lord knows what He is doing ...

Thank you ....

Christmas to-do

Jason - done
Jason's mom
Jason's dad
My mom - done
My dad - done
Paula - done

I think I need to do some more shopping on .. I just wish that I could finish the last 3 on there (MIL, FIL, BIL) ... and get it over with .. but not sure what to get MIL & FIL! The kids -- well, I have a few things to get wrapped from the closet ... and then need to get a few other things and will be done.

Jason's gift -- I am working on. I can't really say anything online about it -- because he reads everything :) LOL ... I just hope that he will LOVE it! :)

Saturday will be a busy day -- but that is ok. Jason has Monday and Tuesday off next week! YAY! :) Long weekend!! Love those. He *HAD* to take the last 5 days of vacation before the end of the year ... and this will be 2 of those days. :)

Nothing else is planned this week ... AWANA at church tomorrow night ...
