Thursday Nigth Crew Christmas Party!

(click here for today's pictures)

  • I knew this was going to be a busy day so I stumbled out of bed and started working on food for tonight.  I had baked some sugar cookies and cooked 2 pounds of sausage when I remembered that one of those pounds of sausage was supposed to be going into sausage balls-so I shouldn't have cooked it.  Hmm, that is kitchen fail #2 for me in less than 24 hours!
  • We were able to do most of school this morning-Anderson didn't finish his nor did Campbell.  Sweet Campbell is a home body just like her parents.  She was ready to come home just as fast as she could this morning and was soon home bearing a snack for all of us-she didn't want to wait around for cookies to bake at Nonna's house so they just popped some popcorn and brought it to us.  
  • We had lunch and then spent some time picking up the house before putting on our jackets and heading to Grannymom's house.  We dropped Whitman off and went to Sams-not to shop today but to go and ring the bell for the Salvation Army.  
  • We rang the bell with the Kamps for a while and then their shift was over and it was just us.  The kids sang some songs and soon Nonna showed up and then Pops followed by Whitman and Robby came to see us.  Everyone helped ring the bell-even Whitman.  The little 3 went home with Robby and the big kids and I were there for a few more minutes so we made a game of standing out there-we tried (and succeeded) to get 50 people to tell us Merry Christmas. 
  • Then it was home for just a few minutes-time to change clothes and help Robby heat up our food-before leaving for the McGuire's Christmas party.  Everyone brought lots of yummy food and it was all delicious.  We probably have been having our little Christmas parties with the McGuires and Penningtons well over 10 years (I could only find a record on the blog since 2005 but I am pretty sure that was not the first!)  
  • After the party, we hurried home so we would have time to pull our Santa down, talk about an ornament and read our verses for the day.  It was after 10:45 when my kiddos laid their heads down!
