Making Ugly Dolls

Yesterday was a fun day at church.  All year, we had been doing something at church called “secret sister”.  We each drawed a womans name and for the year that lady was our “secret sister”.  We gave her small gifts, cards etc.  Then yesterday we all got together and revealed who our sister sister was.  We also had lots of food.

Then we did a craft.  We made ugly dolls.  I’m not sure why they are called that.  I thought they turned out very pretty.

We are cold here.  Our temperature is 42 degrees with wind chills in the 30’s.  We have been cold, rainy and foggy all week.  We have had to build a fire several days.  Oh well,it won’t be long until we will be complaining about it being too hot.

I hope you all have a great Sunday and God bless.

 

Monday

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Things were kinda slow for us-just the way we like it.  We didn’t do much of anything on Saturday, just normal cleaning chores.  Yesterday,  we had a nice day at church.  My Secret Sister gave me a tin of homemade cake pops.  They were delicious.  We came home, ate lunch and then the girls and I went to the movie theater.  We very seldom go to the theater.  It is reserved for big treats.  We usually try to go at Christmas time as part of their Christmas gift.  We then went to Wal-Mart and finished up some shopping.  Everyone is coming to our house Saturday for our Christmas get together.

Not much else going on here.  I am making another batch of homemade yogurt.  This time using the pureed fruit.  Supper tonight is cabbage casserole, pintos and cornbread.  We are warm here today-mid 40’s.  I do not have a fire as of yet.  We are holding off as long as possible.

I hope you all have a great day.  God bless.
