Right Now

Right now it is 41* outside, and headed towards the high 20's.  
I've just covered the 2 pineapple plants and chia plants and snake plants and flower plants and palm plant with sheets so that they'll stay cozy tonight.  Kind of crazy since yesterday we were swimming.  :)

Our oldest daughter is sitting on the fireplace reading a book - next to a fire.  Our youngest is sitting on the couch listening to her daddy read her a story.  And my husband just saw that I started blogging so he is calling the family together for scriptures - after this chapter ends - I have a small reprieve!

We just did a bit of shopping - kids for a few last friends.  While my husband and I hoped to find a few other things, the kids were sticking to us like glue.
We came home and traveled through a couple of neighborhoods - enjoying all of the Christmas lights as we went.

The kids are out of school for two weeks.
Christmas packages have been sent.  (Except for yours Julie - I'm still working on it)
Yawn - a little more shopping tomorrow morning, then the annual drive around looking at lights with some friends in their 15 passenger van after dessert.

My yawns are becoming more insistent.  And scriptures are calling my name.

Yesterday was our anniversary.  Yep - on 12 -12-12.  How cool is that?  Too bad it wasn't our 12th anniversary.  Anyways - I married a pretty amazing man.

Just thought I should document it.

I will begin blogging soon.  The primary is in charge of the ward Christmas party.  Tomorrow.
That's about all I've been thinking about and doing - once this party is over, our family will be able to start thinking about Christmas and working on all of those projects on the "To Do" list.

In the meantime, today, I'll be making these:
Yep - that's my proto-type.  Totally adorable candy cane themed centerpieces with flowers in them - with candy scattered all around.  They'll be placed on a snowflake (made by one of the primary children), on top of a red square of paper, on top of the white table cloth.  Yes - it is a candy cane decorative theme.

We spent this morning hanging white lights across the church gym.  Zigging across - with coffee filter snow flakes attached, then zagging back again.  Phew.  Melinda, Gail, and Kyle saved us - it would have never gotten done without them.  But it does look pretty dang cool!
Thank goodness for eyebolts (already there) and zip ties.  :)
