Dress of the week December 18th !

Good morning Ladies ! I got so busy last week that I did not get a chance to sit down and post, my apologies ! I can review it here. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas ! Just a week to go until Christmas day ! We have had some strange weather this past week alone. Last Friday we had a snowstorm that dropped 15 inches on us ! Saturday and Sunday were relatively mild in comparison . Early Wednesday it got close to 60 degrees F and snow melting . Then we had a windstorm , thunder and lightening . We were blessed though it did not do too much damage. I am counting my blessings after seeing the devastation and loss of life in Kentucky. God bless all of them affected.

On Thursday the 7th I took off and brought our son to the hospital for his latest appointment after fracturing his shinbone. He was in a full leg cast for a few weeks . When we got there they started to take it off. They use a small saw called an oscillator that cute the smallest amount into the cast. It was a little scary for my son but between myself and the technician we calmed him down ! It was good to have his leg free for a half hour or so. They did x-rays and the doctor was happy with how it is healing. They put a smaller cast on below the knee and said he could put more pressure on it walking. He is able to get around on it . He still uses a wheelchair for school. On Saturday we had friends , 3 couples and some of their kids over for lunch and to hang out for a few hours . It was a nice time ! Then in the afternoon we decorated !

On  Sunday  we  celebrated  the  3rd  week  of  Advent  or  Gaudete   where  the  rose colored  candle is  lit  and  the  priests  wear rose  color  vestments,  It means  rejoice , the   birth of  our Lord is  very near !   After   church it  was  a  pretty   relaxing  day .  Monday  started a  new  work  and  school  week .  On Wednesday  the   kids  Church  class   was  cancelled  due to   high   winds  and  possible  tornado  activity  but   Thank  God it did  not transpire.   On Thursday  evening our  Church  had  their  advent  reconciliation or  confession  night  with  6   visiting  priests and  our own  parish priest  hearing  the  sacrament.   On Friday I  was  off  as  we had  some workers  helping out with our  basement  bedroom/bathroom  project. One  guy  was  doing  the  electrical  rough in , running all the  wires . The other  was  adding heat  vents to  both rooms so it is   ready  before   sheetrock.    The  same  guy  also added a   new  gas  line  from our  mechanical room  to the new gas  stove  we  ordered! I am  so  excited to be using  a  gas  stove  again, I could  not  get  used to the  electric  one after  6 months  of living  here. This  was  the  time to do it  as  the  new  bedroom is  directly below  the  kitchen and  the  ceiling   would be inaccessible later.   Someone is  lined up to take our  electric stove. We  have  some  chores  today  before  Christmas !

Dress of the week December 4th !

Good  morning  Ladies !   It is  hard  to  believe  but it is   now  December , one of  my  most  favorite   months of the  year .  It is  the  month  we  welcome our lord  and  savior  Jesus Christ .  We  are  having   some  nice  weather  temperatures  here   for  Minnesota ,  We  dont  have  any  snow  on the   ground ,  but  we  are   promised  a  little   bit over   the  weekend . Thursday  was a  beautiful  day in the  low   50s  and   sunshine !  

Christmas bucket list

Last  Sunday  was    a   day of    quiet  family   time   after   the  busyness  of  thanksgiving.   The  kids   had  Monday off  school   to give  them    a   nice   long   late  November  mini  holiday.   Our  little  guy  who is in a  cast  due to   fracturing  his   shinbone    went  back to  school  Tuesday  after  being  off   for  over  a  week .  He is using his  wheelchair   and  had  lots of  attention  from the other  kindergartners  when he  returned! The  innocence of  little  kids !  Wednesday  the kids   also  returned  to  church class.    Thursday  was  a  pretty  normal  day of  work  and  home life .   On  Friday  I   went    food   shopping  , and  when there  I    seen Christmas  cards   and  realized  I  need to  get  them sent overseas quickly !  I will write  them  today .   Also today we  are  having   a  few   couples and  their  kids  over  for  lunch and  to   catch up. It  should  be   fun  !

Later we  might  go out  shopping for a   new  gas  stove .  We  have  electric  right  now    but  have  been  so used to gas over the  years   that  we   want to  see  what is  available.  Which do you like, gas or  electric?    I also hope  to  see  some hallmark   Christmas  movies, they are  a   guilty  pleasure of  mine !!
