I can't believe it's been so long since my last post!! Where does the time go? Last weekend was SUPER busy, but fun...I met up with Missy & FAB & Baby at Chic Fil A, and then a quick trip to Old Time Pottery. I think we're gonna try & meet once a week (after Thanksgiving, of course) while she's off work so the girls can play together & we get a little Mommy break & adult conversation :) That's always nice!! :) We had a good time!! :)

So, hmmm, that was Thursday...Thursday night was PTpractice, and then Friday was a Birthday party for Princess's best friend from church. I don't know if I've shared this here, or not, but she's got this little friend from church that she just LOVES, and he loves her, too. They're so cute together, and their sweet friendship is such a blessing to everyone. They're so loving towards each other & just get so excited when they see each other!! LOL They litterally drop whatever they're doing & run to greet the other, arms outstretched. It's so sweet. They really have fun at Awana, too... Anyways, please keep BestFriend in your prayers. He's living with his Grandparents (last I heard, I'll get to that in a minute) because his Mom has pretty much desserted him. It's so sad. She was *supposed* to get him "for good" this past weekend, but I'm not sure that ever happened. I haven't gotten word either way. SO, whatever's happened/happening, please pray for protection over him, and God's will in his life, no matter what happens. I know it's hard, but sometimes God's best is not exactly what we want. I'm sure we could all share stories like that... Anyways, my heart's been heavy for him this week...

Speaking of Awana...It's been as good for me as it has been for Princess!! LOL I've never been great at memorization, especially scripture, but it's been pretty much happening while I help Princess memorize hers...Let me tell you, it's awesome to hear your 2 3/4 year old say, "My eyes have seen your salvation" & "While we were sinners, Jesus Christ died for us." A couple of weeks ago, she stayed with us during church because the inlaws were in town. Anyways, Pastor used 2 of her Awana Cubbies verses in his sermon, and she knew exactly what he was talking about both times!! Her eyes lit up like, "I know what he's talking about!" SO sweet. Then she started saying, "Jesus Christ died for us..." over & over in her sweet little voice. I about started bawling right then & there.

Oh, so Saturday I went to SkinnyBlondObnoxious cousin's baby shower. I'm telling you, I love her because she's family, but I have tried & tried to like her, and it's just not there. It's one of those things where you're like, "Surely I'm remembering her wrong, and she's not that bad" & then she opens her mouth & you take that *inward* sigh, like, "Oh, yes she is..." Again, nothing specific comes to mind, I guess it's just her attitude. Other than her being her, it was a good shower. Princess was funny & was jumping in all the tissue paper & wrapping paper & having a good ol' time. Afterwards, we took Princess to Mom & Dad's where she stayed with Dad & watched the OSU/Michigan game, and Mom & I took off to Kohl's & JoAnne Fabrics. Then, when we got back to her house, I remembered (it was, like 8p.m.) that I had told BestFriend's grandma that I'd make him a cake for his family party on SUNDAY (the next day). It was a smaller cake, but I ended up making it at Mom's. It was (no exaggerating) the ugliest cake I've ever decorated. She said it tasted good, and I guess that's all that matters, but WOW, was it ugly. I didn't charge her for it, because I didn't even make the icing. It was BAD.

Anyways, Monday...what did I do Monday? I forget, but I had something to do. Or maybe not. OH!! We got pizza & Princess ate Burger King while I shopped at KMart (I had a lay-away to pay on & bought a few other things I shouldn't have, probably). Then, we went home & watched Charlie Brown Thanksgiving & went to bed.

Tuesday was eyebrow apts. & we went to Frisch's for supper (with Mom & DaisyGeorge), and Wal-Mart, and tonight I made supper & pumpkin "brownies" for tomorrow, and got the base of my sweet potato casserole together & in the pan for tomorrow. I'll just have to bake that tomorrow & some crescent rolls!! It's been a LONG time since I've been this "together" the night before Thanksgiving!! LOL

So, now that I gave you a play-by-play on my oh-so-exciting life, I guess I'll just say goodnight. Tomorrow's Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad's, and we hope to leave not long after the parade is over, even though dinner's not "officially" until 3p.m...WorthlessKnowledge (DaisyGeorge's hubby, my bil) has to work until 5p.m., so that's why it's a little the food isn't TOO cold for him when he gets off...

You have had a busy week! That is so precious that Princess is quoting scripture! I just want to cry with joy when Pita Pocket sings "You Are Holy".....but he sings "You Are Holly". Treasure those moments!

Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!!!! Hope it's not too cold for BIL! LOL!

Lots of Love!
