Day 2 - Advent Activity & Gift....
In a perfect world gifts and activities would be blogged about on the very day that they occurred. You KNOW my blog is not a "perfect" world. ::snort::
Can you read that?"Make Snowflakes & decorate the windows."
True Confession: Mike came home from work ill yesterday and went right to bed where he stayed until this a.m. Jamin hid the gift for yesterday this a.m. and so we looked for Tuesday's gift on Wednesday.
I've got the clue - but I can't read it...
Big brothers are so handy...Hint: "wind bag under canned air."
In the dishwasher?
No, Jared, your gift is not a cheesecake!
Jared knew immediately - the fridge in the garage got Arielle moving in the right direction!
We appreciate all the time Mike and Jamin put into creating clues and now hiding gifts. Jamin even took time to blow up balloons for all.
Stacia has a unique technique. She holds it with one hand and wails on it with the other. ::snort::
Other Tuesday Tidbits
I announced to the Produce Co-op that 19 December will be my last day as coordinator. This is NEW for me to begin cutting back on activities before a move. I make it a practice to tenaciously refuse to acknowledge changing seasons until they are thrust upon me. I've taught Bible Study one night and drove out of state the next a.m. THIS time I realize that *maybe* some of Mike's "PCS pinging syndrome" is due to my refusal to admit I'm moving. ::snort:: We're both determined to keep each other accountable and make this a "friendlier" move. Seriously, through family discussions and prayers, I've realized that I need to start slowing down so that I can spend the next 6 - 9 months focusing on relationships, school, packing and Jamin's last few months with us ::gasp::.... this is the first activity I let go. It sort of hurt and sort of felt good at the same time. Hurt? Because it signifies in a big way to me that I AM going to be moving and I've come to love West TX (not as much as Alaska ::snort::). I also have not volunteered to do anything new....I'm making an effort.
I also ran (figuratively) to the theater...snapped this shot....
Party Boys (Nolan, Erik - Doug & Deja's son, Wade)
then zipped to PWOC and led Bible study and then back to the theater. I've been trying to figure out how to do early dinner (then he needs late dinner) when he gets home....and last night...like a shining star in the winter sky...BURGER KING drive-through loomed in our path. $2.98 - not bad when only ONE eats there. ::snort:: Frankly, he eats BEFORE rehearsal and is ready for another full meal after (at say 10:00 p.m.). Burger King is truly a shining star in my week. ::snort::
