Too Party or Not Too Party...That is the Question?!

First off I would like to send out sincere apologies to all of my bloggy girlfriends for not posting or commenting these last few days. It has been busy around here and I am thankful for the many friends that we have visited with over the past 2 days!

So secondly, too party or not too party...that is the question?! This past weekend I was the hostess with the mostess! We hosted 2 Christmas parties, yes count them, 2, this past Friday and Saturday!

Friday night we hosted the annual Christmas party for the school where I teach. It was fun, in light of the lack of people that actually showed up! We have close to 75 people who work at the school including teachers, office staff, and aids and only about 15 people showed up, making the grand total around 30 people who came. But that is OK, we still had lots of fun and the last ones didn't leave until after 1am! The boys stayed at grandma and grandpa's house and had lots of fun! I didn't think to take any pics of this party, oh well, maybe next time!

Saturday night we hosted the annual WCHS football staff party. This party was very fun, as it was a family party! There were over 15 kids alone at this party and with all of the adults, the number reached over 50! We had a taco bar set up with all the fixin's and lots of other fun food to eat as well. There was lots of talk, laughing, playing, poker and of course football!! I did get pics at this party!

In between parties, I was busy shopping for food, supplies and gifts for a family of 5 that we adopted from church!

Today I was stunned when I woke up at 9am! I headed to church with the boys and then came home to make my yummy peppermint cookies for a cookie exchange I attended this afternoon!

So, that was my busy weekend. I love this time of year, even though it was exhausting, it was so much fun. Food, friends, & fun, what else can you ask for?! And not once did we forget that Jesus is ALWAYS the reason for the season!

Hoping you had a Christ filled weekend!
