Weekend recap....

Well the Christmas session is among us and we've been going out like mad...
It all started last weekend when a bunch of us moms got together to wish ourselves "Happy Birthday" and say goodbye to a great mom (pictured in the back in stripes) Abbie.
I was her classmate in Community Bible Study just a few weeks...but she is such a great lady...(sorry I mean gal) we'll miss her. We laughed so hard...I think I lost all the calories communed that night...

Our church also had a Christmas musical the Friday night right after that...everyone looked so nice and festive...it really got me in the spirit...plus one of my favorite soloist...Caresse sang...(I tell ya...Whitney Houston/Mariah Carey/Taylor Swift all rolled in one...)

Fast forward to this past Friday night and our youth hosted their first "progressive" dinner fast food style...This was a hit! We dragged kids from In and Out, Taco Bell, Pizza and McDonalds and ordered an item for them...then they had to eat it. No joke food...just stuff they like...fries, tacos, etc.

My boys are goofing off at Taco Bell. Note my "vegetarian" isn't eating....

The next night...the kids stayed at the church and we attended a progressive dinner adult style.
Each house was so festive and pretty and the food of course was great!
photo stolen from Glenn B's facebook...ok maybe twice...

I love this photo of my pastor looking all "police like" and
so many folks God has put in my life I enjoy are in this photo...


photo from Glenn B's facebook again...this is the last one...I didn't bring my camera!

OK...of course I have to "ham" it up...I think my husband was saying..."No Lorrie, stop!"
My pastor and his wife know I'm a ham...but the poor guy in the red hasn't a clue how silly I am!

We also had missions Sunday...and I love hearing missionaries which always convicts me.
This weekend was fun and we'll be celebrating Christmas next weekend...
with a drive thru Nativity our church does...
time to drag out the gloves and coats...

Oh...I finally got my tree and will be working on it today! I'm so behind.

Well that was my weekend...fun, faith-filled and frantic!

Hope you had a great one too!

Wow! What a fun weekend!!!! And I bet the youth had fun that night!! LOL! I would have fun doing that.heehee.

I know, it's so funny how people may perceive you one way, and you're totally the opposite!! I'm referring to the guy in the red shirt. :)
