Trains, Manes, Staying Sane

These past 4 days have flown by the Sweet Pea home, full of activity and fun. In a nutshell, we saw some more trains:

got a haircut for G's mane:

and had a date night out, just SPH and I, to stay sane.

Can you tell I just watched a World Word show that included lots of rhyming? (BTW, am I the only one who thinks that "Duck" from World Word sounds remarkably similar a Bill Clinton impersonator?)

Then this morning was our annual MOPS Christmas Brunch, which was preceded last night by a MOPS leadership ladies' night out to Figlio.

Throw in the normal activity of our home, a double ear infection and perforated ear drum for R and some Christmas Cookie making and delivering, and you pretty much have summed up our weekend/Monday.

Our meals for the week:
Grilled Chicken Brats, Sauerkrat, German Potato Salad, Green Beans
Pasta Carbonara, Butter Beans
Cheddar Crab and Broccoli Soup
Homemade Pizza
Baked Burritos

Hope your week is sweet,

You sure are busy! It's all just hitting me too. Every night until Christmas will be one thing or another for me but I am spacing it out to keep positive and remembert the true meaning & reason for it all. (I'll keep reminding myself).

I've never heard of that World Word.

You know, you told me all of that in person, but seeing it in writing really underscores how busy you've been. It is insane over here. I almost lost my mind today, but there is still some left. The rest went away until after the holidays.

Good luck on your trip.....
