WEEKLY WRAP-UP

WEEKLY WRAP-UP
12/15/2008-12/21/2008
.
WEATHER: mostly cloudy, cold, and rainy. We got SNOW!! on our hills behind the house. Only about 1000 more feet and it would have been us!!!
.
SUNDAY SERMON: Was really, really nice. Pastor Greg talked about the real meaning of Christmas.
.
LIFE LESSONS: (for my loved ones) if I say I want to crawl into a hole and be by myself, let me!
.
TREASURED MOMENTS: hanging out with AC Friday afternoon, bonding when we went to Kmart
.
THINGS I READ: Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx; The Christian in Complete Armour; The Pillars of the Earth
.
THINGS WE WATCHED: I don't think I watched anything but Intervention and Celebrity Rehab all week.
.
PLACES WE WENT: shopping, church, to get our tree, tacos, T and I went to my company Christmas party, KT went to her Aunt's yesterday.
.
BLESSINGS: my great kids!!
.
CHALLENGES: taking care of T because his back is out
.
ACCOMPLISHMENTS: I'm completely done with Christmas
.
FAMILY HAPPENINGS: Last weekend, a kid from AC's school was shot and killed at a party. All week the school was on heightened alert with a major police presence due to the fact that it was race/gang related and there were many threats. KT's school was on alert and locked down for much of Friday because the threats had spilled over to her school. Thankfully, due to the police presence no violence ever happened at or after school and this 2 weeks off will settle things down.
The BIG NEWS is that T's son proposed to his girlfriend over the weekend. SHE SAID YES!!!

I straightened KT's hair on Thursday:

We watched the cousins overnight on Saturday.

What does octopus taste like? Is it similar to Squid?

We're having cousin over next week. It should be a fun week for the kids.

Christine,
It wasn't really octopus, it was hot dogs cut like octopus and mac and cheese. The recipe is on my recipe blog.
I would NEVER eat REAL octopi.

The real stuff isn't so bad! ;o)

The snow on the mountain is beautful!

I LOVE the cloud "plane"!

I had to laugh at your "Life Lesson"! It sounds so familiar...

I'm not real keen on octopus, but I like squid. If it's done right.
