I can not believe we are in week 49! Where did this year go?
This has been a busy week of projects at pre-school and work too. I am so thankful for so many that have helped this week!
This is the hallway I walk down to enter the mall and go to work almost every time I come.
Kind of blah, don't you think?
This is our new mailbox, expertly installed by Kevin's dad today.
Why did we need a new mailbox you wonder? Well, our mailbox and post fell victim to an underage drinker. So thankful that no one was hurt. Thanks to Dad for coming to the rescue!
Today I was off and spent a lot of time at the pre-school. We have been working on a cookbook as a fundraiser and it has been a lot of work. Due to my working, my wonderful friend Ann has taken on the task. Oh how I love her!!
When I got home this one had the giggles.
She couldn't stop laughing and it was funny and contagious!
We have been having some of these boxes arrive lately.
Now that might not be out of the ordinary for most houses this time of year, but for ours it is a HUGE blessing. Due to our situation we are not able to do Christmas gifts this year. Our small group got word of this and have taken action with others and our kids will be receiving gifts. I don't tell you this to gain sympathy, but to give thanks and praise to God who never fails. Thank you to all of those special people who are blessing our family too! I can never express my humble gratitude enough.
The kids saw something today that caused these reactions.
What could get them going like this? Maybe this?
No, he looks like Jack Frost got ahold of him.
Kevin has a "gig" as Santa for the city of South Bend. He was trying on all of his garb today to make sure it looked ok.
He walked out to the mailbox in full costume...
...and you should've seen the cars going by and then the honks he got. It was hysterical!!
Remember that cookbook I mentioned? Thanks to Ann and Kevin IT.IS. DONE!!!
Hopefully everyone will be pleased with the results and will love the recipes inside. Again, I am so very thankful for Ann, who stepped up for this project due to my schedule. She is an invaluable gift to me!!
When I actually get a break at work, I usually sit down in the food court to get out of the store for a bit. I love to people watch while I am there.
I see some very interesting people and behaviors while there. A note to parents...know what your kids are doing at the mall. I will leave it at that.
I hope you have had a great week and that you are anticipating Christmas and Christ's birth with great excitement this year!! Have a super week!
