What A Weekend!

Wow, this weekend was a whirlwind of activity!  All good stuff, but I'm exhausted.  Here's the summary...

My sister from St. Louis, Kathy, and her daughter Maggie came up for the weekend.  Traditionally, many of the women in my family go to a holiday concert together, typically a choir concert at a local Christian college.  This year, we decided to step it up a bit and went to the Celtic Thunder Christmas Concert.  But, before all that, we decided that a sleepover was in order.

So, on Friday night we all converged on Mom & Dad's house (which we decided to "borrow" for the event).  Lots of laughs, food, and fun!

 Next day, we did cookie baking at my parents' house...always a fun, sugar-filled time! 

I have a hard time sticking to the traditional type decorations...Where some saw a mitten and a stocking, I saw a goldfish and a seal...

Then it was time to get ready for the concert.  Deb and I did our nails in Christmas-y colors (I'm red, Deb's green for those who care)

Soon, we were all dolled up and ready to go...
and only slightly crazy....
An exhausting, but fun weekend!  I love the holiday season :-D


  1. It was a fun weekend. Hope you enjoyed the concert and see why Maggie and I love the Celtic Thunder lads.
