Christmas Eve - We found LIGHTS

Michael was home today - which is always a bonus. He got busy on a project - adding a stabilizer to the trailer. He got the back done and will do the front some other time. 

While he was busy with this, the girls and I worked on meal plans for the upcoming week, a grocery list, baked a cake for tomorrow and then Krista, Stacia and I went grocery shopping. Yeah - not the best planning. I only got hit four times by other shopper's carts. ::snort::  Arielle put the mighty stock of food back in the pantry as we were finally able to declare it ant-free this a.m.

We spent the afternoon playing games.  Scrabble Scoop - which I'd forgotten we had. This is more a game of chance than skill....I thought maybe we stood a chance in this version of Scrabble.
Krista brought a new game down - In a Pickle. It was a lot of fun. I'm sure we'll play it more.
Arielle found the traveling men today. We thank Jesus because He's picture perfect.

We enjoyed the Christmas Candlelight service tonight and then we went in search of Christmas lights. We found the right neighborhood in Yuba City!  I only had my phone so the photos are wonderful but the memories are. LOL  They had lights strung across the street from roof to roof.

Stacia reminded me it's "tradition" for me to make cinnamon rolls on Christmas Morning. It is a GOOD thing she reminded me because it wasn't even on my radar screen. She's in bed and made me promise to wake her up to bake with me. I love it.  Krista isn't feeling well and is also sleeping. The men are reading. I'm about to join them.

Choosing Joy!
