Supper is done and the laundry is folded, so I feel okay about blogging for a few moments while Baby bounces!
We had a very nice weekend. "Nice" sounds so uninteresting, but really we had a busy and fulfilling, yet relaxing weekend. I left Baby and Dad to bond on Saturday morning while my mom and I ran to JoAnn's. I wasn't intending to buy anything (isn't that always the way?); I just went to accompany her. I ended up finding some very nice brown paper gift bags, though, and a package of kitchen dish towels with a Christmas theme. I love 50% off sales! Nothing to craft or sew, though. No time at the present! The bags are red and green gingham and one says, "Believe." I'm not sure if that's "Believe" as in Santa (and a Polar Express tie-in) , but in our house that means Christ. Oh, and I found one that was a clear plastic with the outline of evergreens on it! It will look striking when packaged with white tissue paper!
Saturday evening DH acted as DJ for a Knights of Columbus Christmas party so my parents came over to have dinner and spend the evening with me. Other than myself, my dad is the first person to really get the baby worked up giggling. It is so cute!
Sunday was Mass, of course, then DH bought our Christmas tree. In the past two years, we've only ever found one local farm that sells TALL trees. Our ceilings are about ten fee high, plus DH is over six feet so a short tree is just not acceptable. I said last year that if it was shorter than him, it wasn't the tree for us! He found a great one, though, and it's been settling out today. We're going to start decorating tonight! The baby loved, loved touching and seeing the tree as it came through the door was set up in the corner. I can't wait to see his expression when it has lights on it!
It seems like I had other things to blog about, but I guess I'm too tired to remember.
Oh, I did get my cookies made this weekend. I did Whole Wheat Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. Whew! That's a mouthful (haha). I found the recipe on Crystal's site, Biblical Womanhood (8/18/06 post).
