It's Friday!

What an exhausting, long week after that fun-filled, too much food-filled one last week.  This next month will be incredibly busy and filled with a lot of fun activities, so I am hoping to get some energy back!  In all of my pregnancies, I have had anemia and am beginning to think it's effects are setting in once again.  Perhaps if I go out and get those really awesome (sarcastic tone) iron pills, I'll get some pep back in my step again.  It's worth a shot!

Tonight we had a fun evening:  pizza, Charlie Brown Christmas, and ice cream.  The kids enjoyed a special treat and tomorrow they will wake to find their first Advent sack.  Since we have decided to make Saturday evenings a fun night for the kids with a movie and child-friendly dinner, our first sack includes The Polar Express dvd that we like to pull out this time of year.  We'll pair that with some hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls with cheese, some apple slices, and veggies, and all will be good to go.  Easy for this mama and a big hit with the kiddos.  

I can't believe that tomorrow is already December.  Christmas will be upon us before we know it and then time to start prepping for Baby #4.  Time sure does fly and the kiddos are excited about being able to countdown these last twenty-five days until Christmas.  We will be spending a lot of time talking about the meaning of Christmas and that it is important to give and not just receive.  We have many wonderful books about Jesus' birth and will make sure to read one of them each night in addition to their other Christmas picks.  Some of our books for our family service project arrived today and I look forward to showing them the big pile once they all arrive.  I think we ended up with around 60!  Awesome!  

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
