Down For The Count

What a crazy weekend! Although I think I said that last weekend too. You can definitely tell that it is close to Christmas. Everybody's schedules are insanely busy! The end of last week, I pulled something in my back, and was in quite a bit of pain this weekend. My back is getting better, but still quite sore. Sore back or not, we had things to do. Saturday morning we had a Christmas party for the kids at church. Santa was there, and I wish you could have seen John's face when he saw him! He was in complete amazement, and when Santa gave him a gift he was so excited. Corey wouldn't even get close to Santa. I was expecting that so I wasn't surprised. We then left the party and went to see Dawn and give her her Christmas presents. Please pray for her. She was very happy to see me, and spent almost the whole visit on my lap. She loved the new scarf I crocheted for her, and we looked through the photo album I made for her of pictures from her time at our home. She is not adjusting well to her new home, and will probably be moved again unless something miraculous happens. I left that visit in tears. I told Jeremy later that I just wanted to bring her home, but I know that we can't. After the visit, we went to church to practice for the Christmas program. By the time we got home early that evening we were tired! Yesterday was about just as crazy. We had Sunday School and morning service. Then we rushed home for lunch, and a short rest. Then it was back up to the church by 3:30 to run through the program one more time, a quick dinner, and then the performance. Jeremy played a part in the play, and I sang in the choir. Jeremy did a great job as "Grandpa Billy". He was so nervous, but he did fabulously. His "grandpa voice" was the best! Caitlyn sang in the junior choir again, but Kylie wasn't up to it last night, and watched happily from the audience. We were pretty tired when we finally made it home last night, but relieved to be finished with the program. Now we have till Thursday to get everything packed to go out of town. Besides a few little things, we pretty much have a clear schedule till we leave on Thursday morning. Aaahhhh! I can't wait to get to Tennessee. The kids are very excited, and so are we. A quick note: My cousin Matt Moss is getting sent back to the states (from Ecuador) just in time for Christmas! We'll be praying for a safe trip. Love you all and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with these.
