I have three days off this week. Really this time. I mean it. It should be glorious. Today I went to the post office to get stamps to send the rest of my Christmas cards. They all went out today. The old folks in the post office are very chatty. Then I went to the Wal-Mart to get something to pack all the Christmas goodies in. I am doing a little baking this week for our Holiday Game Night. I will do most of my baking for presents next week so they are fresh.
Speaking of Holiday Game Night…
This Saturday, December 19, we are having a Holiday Game Night and Ornament Exchange. If I didn’t send you a personal invite, do not be alarmed. You are totally invited. Just email me, Facebook me, text me, call me… Whatever. It’s going to be fun. In actuality, it was Tabi and Kathy’s idea for the game night and ornament exchange. We are going to have lots of appetizer type foods. I am making my Aunt Pavena’s yummy eggrolls. I know Jackie is bringing deviled eggs. I am baking some cookies; peanut butter, snowballs, sugar cookies and maybe chocolate chip. It is going to be just what I needed to get into the holiday spirit. Friends, fun, Christmas cookies, and ornaments… So come on down.
Next week I will do more holiday baking; Cookies and fudge and Grandpa’s Gum Drop cake. Tonight I am making spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread. Later the girls will be in some holiday programs at their schools. Yes, each one at her respective school, at the same time. Carolynn will be playing in her holiday band concert and Catherine will be singing in her school’s choir concert. David will be attending Carolynn’s band concert and I will be attending Catherine’s choir concert. There will be pictures.
If there is time for movies tonight after the concerts, we will be enjoying Mickey’s Christmas Carol. David really wants to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol. Everyone wants to see Jim Carrey in the new Christmas Carol. It’s my favorite Christmas story. (But my favorite Christmas movie has more to do with a Red Rider Air Rifle.)
Anyway, I have to go get the meatballs going.
