Weekend Wrap-up

December 5, 2011

We had a super busy weekend around here!!  We started out Friday night by going to the Wassailfest up where Hubs works.  Since traffic gets backed up so early we had to leave pretty early.  Thankfully Santa was visiting the train station so we made a stop for some hot chocolate and a photo opp with Santa.

After waiting for about 20 minutes in the car for Hubs to get off work (wasn’t there a book by the same title- ’20 Minutes in Hell’- oh wait maybe that was about something else…) we headed to Fuzzy’s – the kids’ favorite restaurant.  They LOVE that place!

We headed up to the Wassailfest and took some pictures- I love how graphic this picture is.  Love the bright colors.

We decided to take the horse-drawn carriage ride first- that’s always a must do for us we wanted to knock it out early.

E (6) was fascinated by the dance troupe that came to dance.

We had to try the wassail at the kids’ favorite candy store on the square- and buy some candy!

O (8) was nice enough to let me take a picture of him in the fire truck.  He’s not a big poser like his sisters are.

On Saturday we served with Landry Love.  This ministry has really become a highlight of our month.  We love seeing the regulars and we love even more that our kids can come with us and serve alongside us!  This month we were so blessed to have my mom and my sister and her family stop by to serve too! 


And no- that precious baby isn’t mine, but I was more than happy to hold him for a bit.  He was so sweetie pie!

We had a much needed rest Saturday afternoon while the girls went to my mom’s house to make some Christmas pillows.  O just hung out and we had a pretty quite house all afternoon long!  It was so nice.

Saturday night we had our home group Christmas party and it was so much fun.  Between the gut busting laughing and all the Just Dance 3 we did I might have managed to burn off about 1/4 of the calories that I ate while there!  Hubs managed to come home with a framed picture of the Oak Ridge Boys.  Yes – you just read that last sentence right.  One of our friends was in shock (and maybe horror) when she found out that Hubs had no idea who the Oak Ridge Boys are.  The picture now has a special place in our kitchen- alongside some family pictures.  Weird?  Totally, but it makes me laugh when I see it!

We also have some videos of us dancing with Just Dance 3, but those videos will (God willing) never see the light of day!  As much as I would love to show you the men dancing to “Hit Me Baby One More Time” I really don’t want anyone to see all the dances that I did!  Even the last dance Hubs and I had dance-off and I was winning almost the ENTIRE time and he comes in with one last move and takes the win away from me.

Bitter much?

Wow- this post is starting to seem as long as our weekend was!

We went to church on Sunday morning and served in the class with the special needs kids after our normal service.  It was a longer than normal morning for us, but it was such a blessing to be able to help out.  The kids in there are so sweet and the parents are always so appreciative.

After church we came home and the girls all changed into our pj’s and we lit up the fire in the fireplace, put football on and just relaxed ALL AFTERNOON LONG.  It was glorious!  Hubs and I managed to get the kids down early and watch 3 episodes of season 1 of 24.  Wow- that show is addicting!  I’m so glad that we can watch the episodes back to back to back like that.

So that was our weekend!

      You have to remember that he did spend 8 years in Italy- apparently they’re not big there🙂. I don’t even know who the Stattler Brothers are!
