How did Greg and I celebrate our snow day, you ask? Well, we rented Prince Caspian from redbox, took a nap, scrounged around in our cupboards to find something decent (barely) to throw together for dinner, and almost solved another cryptic crossword puzzle. So to celebrate the Narnia series, I took this picture on our patio a few minutes ago. Our own little winter wonderland (excluding the white witch).And it's still snowing quite a bit!
A couple weeks ago I went with a friend from church to see Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas! She & I decided to get all dressed up, so here I am in my fancy shirt. I even wore a skirt out in the crazy cold! We had a fun time and enjoyed the musical even though our seats were in the nosebleed section.
Greg and I hosted my office's holiday party this week. It was fun to have all my co-workers in our home. I made meatballs (which were a hit) and rolls and some delicious cinnamon honey butter. And everyone brought tons of food and drink in addition. We had a wonderful time together celebrating another semester (and year) completed together, and as always, it was special to connect with a few spouses again. This was my third holiday party with this office; I really am blessed by such an incredible group of people with which to work!
We also had our last community group of the semester on Thursday. I'm thankful for these men and women who have opened their lives and been willing to share great joys and struggles together. I will miss having these dear brothers and sisters in our home every week but look forward to having many back in February. How thankful I am that God created us to need community and to know Him more through each other!
