December 1- Today is field trip day at Tay's school. His class is going to see Santa at the mall. And I'm going along for the ride. What a ride that was. Nothing like 30 3yr old at the mall to see Santa to make your day so bright. It went really well. Tay was worn out by the time we left. He was asleep in the car before we could get far down the road. We all took a nap that afternoon.

December 2- Tay and I set off to do some Christmas shopping before meeting some friends for lunch. We ate at Mt. Fuji- a Japanese restaurant in town. They have a hibachi table. I'd never eaten at the hibachi table before, so we did for lunch. It's like a dinner and a show. Very cool. I took Tay back to his house to meet his grandmother who was picking them up today. I ran a couple of more errands and headed home. I put on some Christmas music and worked on a few projects. Jametra came home and we ended up staying home all night. We cooked supper, turned on the tree lights, and wrapped presents. We were in the bed by 9:00. Some fun we are. But it was a good night.

the cook tried to through egg into Tay's mouth-he missed
he missed Jametra's as well
I love this picture of Trey. It looks better in person in the frame. But simply, breathtaking.
For supper that night we cooked a really easy and yummy chicken dinner:
put 2 cans cream of chicken in crockpot
add 2 blocks of cream cheese
add 2 pks dry Italian seasoning
cook on low for 30 min
then add chicken (we added 6 chicken tenders-thawed)
cook on high for 4 hours and serve over rice
This is SO GOOD!!!! We even ate it for breakfast the next day.

December 3- I had agreed to take some photos for a friend and her family. She hasn't had any family pictures made in a while and I wanted to give it a try. After that was over, I went to Lifeway and did some Christmas shopping. I got a few new cds for myself! I had lunch and then headed home. I cleaned my house and did some laundry. I met Jametra for dinner and then went to finally decide on the family pictures I am doing for Christmas. A very full and happy Saturday.
Aren't they precious?
I'm loving these cds!
December 4- I went to church in Houston at New Wine. This is one of my old churches and they are still my family. Some of my greatest friends go to this church. My friend Berea was having her little boy's first birthday party after church. It's hard to believe that Zeke is almost one. Since he was born on Christmas Eve, she had his party early. I loved getting to see my friends, enjoyed a great service at church, and had a blast at Zeke's party. I came home to nap a little bit before heading into work for the night.
