The tree is decorated. Christmas music fills our home. After a major clean of the kitchen (a move the refrigerator kind of cleaning) we just finished a two day bake-a-thon. Mary Jane is quite the baker. We need to make one more batch of peppermint bark for teacher gifts. That needs to get done today. Also on the list...I need to make the pyrogies, wrap presents, Finish addressing Christmas cards, and grocery shopping for our Christmas eve and day meals. Terry is home so he and I will do this together :0)
I was in Walmart on Thursday getting all of our baking supplies and I started to get all choked up. I was thinking about my children and Terry and my Dad and how we are all going to be together over these next few days. No place to go. I feel so blessed to have this time together. I was so excited and overwhelmed at how blessed I am. In those same thoughts I think of those in Newtown, those families, those babies. I pray and beg mercy and grace for them...for all of us.
Well, I am off for now. I promised John Paul he could help me make the dough for the pyrogies. I may have to give him his own little batch. Have a great weekend everyone!
