Christmas is coming!

I for one am super excited that Christmas is coming!! Which I know I blogged about preciously, but am I the only one who still has a ton to do and to shop for? I think I will be so much better after tomorrow, we have our MOPS Christmas tea!! I'm so excited for it! My good friend Sharon is singing and we have a fellow steering team member's mom coming to speak, so we have much to look forward too!!

This weekend we have had a crazy busy weekend!!Tonight Mady is being a sheep in Jayson's Mom's church's Dinner Theatre, yesterday morning we had practice for that, Jayson stayed at practice with Mady girl and Mr. Brycer's and I went did errand running spending some Mommy and Me time! It was crazy b/c life is sooooo easy with just bringing 1 child around!!WE went to walmart to get some things we needed and got gas by the way when I put $25 dollars in my tank of the Explorer it filled it up!! God is good!! it was between empty and a 1/4 of a tank!! Not so bad is it?!!? Then last evening we had our home fellowship CHristmas party!! it was so much fun!! Mady and Bryce had a blast! It was soo nice being with all of our friends and just relaxing enjoying fellowship and some good food!! Then we had Jayson's cousin Georgie come over to babysit so we could attend our friends Annual Christmas party!! we got home from that had a good time and I had to bake 2 happy birthday Jesus cakes for Mady's Sunday School class! ahhh today we had church ad I served at the 10 service with our 1 year old class! but this morning ihad to have some extra time to ice the cakes I made! This afternoon was back to Jayson' mom's church Zion UMC for more practice, Jayson hurt his back, Mady is asleep Brycers just woke and the dinner theatre tonight! Tonight I need to print up the Candy Cane story about how it relates to Jesus and get mini candy canes for the Moppet classes and get everything together for the Tea tomorrow! hopefully we slow down a little bit this week! Although Tuesday night we have the 20 something party and Wednesday evening I have to do some hair! Thursday is Mady's dance class so maybe during the days we have some time to relax also!!! Just writing it down makes me feel a little better it's like i got the craziness off my chest!! You all must think I'm crazy!

On another note the past week or so in my quiet time with the Lord I have been reading over and over the story of the birth of Jesus in Luke and the birth of John the baptist and honestly every time I read the stories whether it be daily or every other day It's like the Lord teaches me something different or God reveals himself more and more to me! It's incredible!

Well I need to get going! I have some laundry I need to put into the dryer and start getting things together for tonight!! Hope you all have a blessed day and praying the Christmas story in Luke touches you as much as it has touched me!!

So I feel like I haven't blo'gged in forever but honestly there has been a lot going on not stuff for Christmas thats coming up this weekend and then forever after that. It's been crazy just doing every day stuff....I've been babysitting a friend of mine's little boy 4 days a week and things get crazy around here, She goes out on Maternity leave on the 15th so then life may get back to a little normal! It's been great money for Christmas and stuff and I'm going to miss having that cash but I'll be glad that life gets back to normal a little bit, like being able to go out when i want and such!

I haven't done as much Christmas Shopping as I would've liked to by now but I have a few people done and Mady is done, Bryce I still have a few things to get him, and a ton more to go!but I'm not worried it will get done!

Meal planning is going well! I'm excited to have done it for 2 weeks at this point! Ha! I've been praying that the Lord would help me with different aspects of organizing and he has surely helped!!! Jesus has been doing so much in our lives and am so greatufl for all he has done and continues to do!

WE had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! WE went up to Ocean Grove and spent it with my parents and family it was awesome! Good food good company! WE got to do things we used to do as a kid, like decorate the church I grew up in St. Pauls' UMC in ocean Grove! IT was so fun to do it again, my parent shave done it since I was a little kid. Mady and bryce came and had fun running round and Mady helped a bit too! Jayson and I did a lot of the lifting and decorating with my mom dad and Aunt Sharon and Uncle bob! It was fun! On Sunday we obviously went to parents church Sunday morning and Brycer's was sitting on my mom's lap and right in front of her was her brother Bob my uncle and Bryce says during the prayer "Bob-Bob" "Bob-Bob" it was so cute and defiantly made my Uncle smile and he sat with him for a while too! fun times!!

Now we are just preparing for the MOPS Christmas Tea! We can't wait! We have some awesome things planned!!! I'm working on getting some give aways together, going to different place and trying to see if they will donate something for our mops group! I'm really excited to hear our friend Deanna's Mom speak! Also my dearest friend Sharon will be singing as well! What an exciting time we have planned!!!
