Michael and I had a good morning talk.
Krista called and we had a great talk with her.
My sister-friend, Beth, called and it was fantastic to hear her voice.
Michael and the boys went to replace spark plugs.
The girls and I tackled the candy project. We were armed with helpful tips from readers....cold water, gloves, and the butter trick. We set up an assembly line and got a routine working well. Stacia unwrapped all these little candy canes for us.
Arielle filled them....she and I both squished the warm canes into hearts....I liked buttering my fingers....really fun for a vegan to be able to enjoy the butter flavor when the project was over. ::snort::
We got tights for the girls.
We couldn't find shoes for Stacia.
We obviously need to get the boys in for hair cuts before we leave. I think I can trim up the girls and I.
Though we ALL tried to avoid it - I'll have to all of them with me on a mall trip before we leave for "The Wedding." The boys think a mall trip is a fate worse than death and I think trying to find camis and "such" with the three younger ones in tow is a fate worse than death and more death!!!
We managed to get two weeks of our core subjects done last week. We are working to do this same this week. It will be a full week.
Dinner is over. Michael is polishing up tomorrow's sermon. The kids and I are going to watch an episode of Duck Dynasty....
Living all of life before the face of God...
