Finishing Strong

From 09 December

It took two of us "constantly stirring", but finally the Three Cheese Chicken Garlic Pasta, garlic bread and salad were ready. Good recipe - no one gagged - though I did throw in a good handful of Italian spices and pepper.

BTW, when we took Arielle to the doc this week he informed me that she has a "highly developed gag reflex." No surprise. Zander just came down to tell me he's become the Pope. I tried to explain. He's convinced he reached the highest level of Knights of Honor and is now the Pope. I guess someone else around here is going to have to reach the highest level before we can figure this one out. Hmmm...THIS is why I blog when they are in bed. ::snort::

The Advent Storybook is a hit! Stacia prayed tonight, "Thank you God for all these beautiful brothers and Arielle, too." Ahhhh.....

Grandma and Grandpa to the RESCUE. We had a treat to hide for our Advent Hunt. Thanks!

From 09 December

They were all very surprised. I saved the things you didn't wrap and they'll be our Advent Prizes for the rest of the year. We told them they were from Grandma and Grandpa. I'm scheming to save enough of the Newman O's to make Oreo Truffles.

A full day and.....

Bre will be home in 7 days
Krista will be home in 9 days
Jamin and Josiah will be home in 11 days

Wow, I think Zander is the youngest Pope.. not sure that Benedict XVI is ready to give up the position of honor.
Maybe Zander will change his mind if he knows it involves moving again and wearing funny clothes :)

Tell Alexander his 2G's T. love him a lot and are happy he loves the Lord. :)):) Never thot I'd be related to a Pope. :):)

Did all the boxes get there. I accidently left out Arielle's and Mike's presents so they will come with Bre or Krista. Have a couple of games I didn't get in either... Later probably.....

Hope to have everyone over this Sunday for a Christmas dinner.... steak..... and etc. Matt has to work all day but I think everyone else will be here. Krista has to go to work Sunday evening so......

Renee - you crack me up. I'll explain this lifestyle to him. I tried telling him he was too young to be the Pope and he's not catholic taboot.....but he is determined.
