Good morning Ladies , I am back !! I took a few weeks of for various reasons . I was just busy on the weekends and also a little bit of mental block as far as creative writing , and at the end of the day making my posts as interesting to you the reader. I started blogging in the summer of 2016, the years have gone by so fast ! The blog is a public diary that I can share with you about the goings on with my life from week to week( nearly weekly!) and have the fun dress to rate at the end of each post. The family unit of husband wife and 4 kids have a lot of events and adventures, and I am glad to share with you all❤
The weekend of November 18-20 was spent mostly at home in preparation for Thanksgiving . We were hosting again this year. It also gave us our first significant snowfall this year ! It was good to get the house tidied up and made spic and span! Well it is usually pretty clean but needed a little more to get it just right. The 3 work days up to Thanksgiving went really fast . I was up early on Thanksgiving morning and we got all the food prepared . my parents in-laws arrived at 10.30am and they brought some yummy desserts … oh and wine ! Then my brother in -law and his 3 kids arrived a little later. His wife is a radiology technician and had to work unfortunately. Also another Brother in Law , his wife and son did not come as they were going to her parents. It was a pity to miss them but we have to share ! We ate at 1pm and everything was so good. Many hands make light work. Our friends Brandon and Josette came over in the late afternoon for an hour to join in the day.
Friday was a day off for everyone . We got to make Christmas cookies ! Then we also got around to putting up some Christmas decorations! here is a sneak peek
We had a really lovely long weekend then it was back to work and school Monday morning. It went by pretty fast. Then Tuesday we got dumped on with 8 inches of snow ! I have to say I got stuck in the snow and had to get a co-worker who was close by to come and pull me out !! Thank you Patrick, a gift card is coming your way Tomorrow ! Wednesday the kids were back in church class.
I was glad when Friday came ! We went out to eat which was nice. Yesterday I spent some time decorating a little more. I was listening to an Irish online country radio station as I was working . Maggie May was the presenter and I sent in a song request ! She very sweetly played it.
In the evening our daughter had a bunch of Girlfriends come over for a sleepover. They were pretty quiet , I was mildly surprised ! Earlier we went to church for the second week of Advent .
