Today I took down and put away Fall around the house. You were fun Fall, but it’s time for the blessings of Advent and Christmas. I have to say I don’t think I’ve ever been so eager for Christmas. This year it might be hard for me to savor Advent as much as I like to with the anticipation of Christmas. I’m not sure what’s causing that but it’s real.

The babies had 3 days out of school this week. The weather was cold and rainy but thankfully not snowy and icy this year. We spent a lot of the day Wednesday and some Thursday cleaning up the house, I told the kids it looked like a trash can in here. But we got it looking pretty spiffy for a few hours. Phil took some of them ice skating as a treat.

We tasted a sample from the menu at each place and heard some of the history of the restaurant from each of the owners. All of these steakhouses have been around since the 1920s and 40s.

I woke up on Friday and knew it was Veterans day then realized it was also St. Martin’s. I couldn’t believe I’d forgotten one of my favorite church days! I got to work digging out the memories of St. Martin’s days past and printing coloring pages for the babies at home that morning.
