Time for a Friday round-up of the best five things of the week. Susanna at Living to Tell the Story does such a great job with this. Go there to read more or add your own. It's fun!
My five favorite things of this week:
Yay! I found my camera! I looked for that thing all week long. It's not good to be a grandmother without a camera - you can be sure that those babies looked their cutest and made the sweetest faces all week long. And all I have to remember them by is my faulty memory. Bad grandma. But last night I finally found it. Under the cushion of the chair of course. Isn't that where every lost thing finds its way?
This week we had our annual church board/staff Christmas party. Every year I make them each a Christmas ornament as a small token thankyou for all the love and care they provide for us and our family throughout the year. Of course, this ornament must be different than the ones I make for my daughters. We have been in our church for 20 years now, and as you can imagine it is getting harder and harder to find ornaments to make. Last year my good bloggy friend The Butler's Wife gave me the perfect idea. She made these last year, and was even sweet enough to send me one!
So I made a whole flock of these sweet little doves to give away. I only have three little birds left - but everyone loved them. And I enjoyed making them. One of the very best things about blogging is the wonderful friends you meet and the creativity they share. Thanks Becky! You made lots of people smile!
Toasted cheese sandwiches have been a favorite this week. I don't know why but I have just been craving them lately. So I have had them for supper three days this week. One of the good things about having an empty nest!
My mailbox. It is so convenient to have our mail delivered right to our house. We have lived in places before where you have to go to the post office to get your mail. I like this so much better. I think I often take for granted these little conveniences.
Last night my husband was gone and I was home alone so I indulged myself by watching one of my most favorite Christmas specials - Santa Claus is Coming to Town!
I love that animated little show - and most people in my family don't care to watch it with me anymore. So I had fun. And I look forward to watching it with Tyler and Ava Claire someday.
Have a wonderful weekend. I haven't decided yet if I'm doing the bloggy tour of homes. I haven't even put up my tree yet! But I'll be sure to come and visit those who do.
