Anyway, we've been enjoying our Jesse Tree devotionals every night at dinner this week and I took a couple pics to show our tree's progress. Dry erase markers aren't the easiest or most cooperative medium for young artistic hands but Michael's doing a great job:
Below is my calendar version for the Jesse Tree and a new postcard I designed this week for our Snail Mail Challenge. Michael wrote a letter to his sister for his weekly contribution and this postcard will get mailed out next week with my Christmas cards.
We have a busy week ahead of us: Tucker has his neutering surgery on Tuesday, poor love!! My heart is already aching for him--I hate for him to be in any pain...Please keep him in your prayers for a speedy recovery! Wednesday (snow in the forecast!) we're supposed to finally get our new kitchen countertop installed--it's only sat in our basement for the past year! I can't wait to see it in place. All good things come to those who wait, right? Then this weekend at the Old Stone House in Slippery Rock, they're having their Christmas Open House Friday evening and then Saturday and Sunday they are hosting the tenth annual Civil War Christmas. I can't decide which I'd rather do, or if we'll drive up for both...Hmmm....And! We have a Christmas party to go to Saturday night, so that should be a lot of fun!
I am just about finished with Christmas shopping, maybe one or two more things and I'll be done. I still have the greater portion of wrapping yet to do, hopefully I can get that tackled later this week. Maybe I'll even drag some of the decorations out and start decking the basement and getting ready for our company--hopefully that will get me more in the spirit, I need a little boost this year!
Rotten One and Rotten Three on cat patrol...I'll never have good furniture...*sigh*
