Can it possibly be only 17 more days until Christmas? I'm not even going to give excuses for not doing a Thanksgiving post. Suffice to say I did my fair share of being thankful and had a wonderful time with family and friends.
No pictures except for this one
due to the fact that lately anytime we go to an activity/gathering I forget to take pictures. But taking pictures of food I remember...wonder why that is?
This past Friday Hubby and I once again went to the Singing Christmas Tree with a group from our church. This is my favorite activity of the year. We had a wonderful time and, once again, I forgot to take along the camera... at least I'm consistent.
Saturday evening we went to a progressive dinner with our adopted adult Sunday school class. I should clarify that we are the adopted ones, due to the fact that we are both teaching 2nd grade kids during the time period that the adults meet. It was SO much fun. I have to admit it's nice to hang around with people your own age from time to time.
Just 9 more school days left until Christmas break...and so much work to do. After the break we'll be doing our state testing, which I actually look forward to... in a way. The Professor will be taking the writing test this year in addition to math and science. So he will be doing a few practice runs between now and then, including a 600 word research paper he's working on right now.
I CANNOT wait until this coming weekend when I will be able to indulge my intense desire to finally do some holiday baking! In plain language: I'll be baking up a storm. Our church is having it's annual Taste of Christmas, and so I'll have the perfect excuse for indulging in some holiday baking. I'm looking forward to trying a few new recipes, as well as some traditional ones. Our aprons are ready and waiting...and since I ALWAYS remember to take pictures of food, you can come here to drool :)
I have more to say (due to the fact that I have been posting so little) but the school books are beckoning. So maybe I'll manage to pull off posting two days in a row; we'll see.
