Friday, December 23, 2011: I'm thankful for productive days with my children. I'm grateful for actions that prove words. I'm grateful for loyalty and familial love!
Saturday, December 24, 2011: I'm thankful for the wonderful baptism with beautiful talks this morning! I'm especially grateful for it because Ria and I (mostly Ria! with me as overseer) spent some time on Wed, Thursday, and Friday baking in preparation for this dear Sister's Baptism. Ria has 'graduated' from her MUFFINS portion of her Baking Adult Skills Class! ^_^ She (and I did help) made: cranberry sauce muffins, carrot muffins, applesauce muffins with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin muffins with cream cheese centers, sweet potatoe muffins with cream cheese centers, corn muffins, zucchini muffins, and I think there may have been another type, but I can't remember what! hahaha ^_^ What a pleasure! And what a joy to use some of my old Pampered Chef items to make a slightly pretty display of the food. ^_^ We had so many left over, we were able to bring a gift of muffins to Jessie's work for the employees there.
I'm grateful for the blessing of having Jessie home for the evening. The restaurant closed early. I'm grateful for the gift opening time we enjoyed and the wonderful reactions and enjoyment of our children. They each received three gifts; not very expensive, but they were WELL pleased with them! Hopefully family pictures will follow soon... WalMart picture center, here we come! ;)
