Iced In, Cleaning, a Christmas Play and a Birthday

I’m sure there are many of you who have your shopping done, and the gifts are wrapped, and the cookies are baked and your homes are clean, and I really wish I could say I was one of you, but I’m working on it!

My youngest son had 2 basketball games and a Christmas play with our homeschool group last week, which made for a hectic, but fun week.  I had a lot of projects to finish up, but on Saturday, I finally decided it was time to clear all the junk out of my kitchen and focus on Christmas preparations for my family.

We had an ice storm roll through on Saturday, so my church had to cancel services today, so it gave me a chance to get some drastically-needed house cleaning done.

I hope you all are able to wind down with the preparations and just enjoy time with your loved ones.  I thought I’d share a few photos from the fun play my son was in.  This is still a fairly new theater group, but they did a wonderful job and it was a thoroughly entertaining evening.

The play was set in New Mexico in the early 1800’s, and is a comic story of how the folks in Rattler Canyon nearly lost their Christmas celebration, and how the birth of a little baby saved it, which of course, ties into Christ’s birth.

My son played the town mayor, who had a bit of a gambling problem.  Gambling or no, he looked pretty spiffy in his suit and hat, and I think he’s hooked on dressing  up now!

My oldest 2 college sons are supposed to start driving tonight to come home for Christmas, and prayers would be appreciate for safe travels for them, as they could run into bad weather and icy roads.

My only daughter turns 21 on Christmas Eve, so we plan to go out to a nice restaurant, then hopefully go to Christmas Eve services.  She’s always been the best Christmas gift in the world to me!

Since I know everyone is busy with Christmas activities, I’m going to skip Knick of Time Tuesday this week, and I’ll plan to see you back here for the party after Christmas.
