Prelude to the Weekend

It’s going to get busy around here. Tonight, I believe I will be watching my niece’s adorable son for a few hours.  Dylan is 6 months, same as Elliot, only Elliot is a week older.  Elliot and K came back on Wednesday and although it’s messier, it’s so wonderful to have them here.  The boys are adorable and they each exhibit totally different personalities.  Dylan is smiling all of the time; Elliot is more serious.  He furrows his brow, deep in thought, it’s so cute! 

Tomorrow, after some serious grocery shopping, K and I will be chopping onions, shredding chicken, and browning ground meat to make two types of chili for our Church’s Second Sunday Social.  On the second Sunday of each month, a parishioner volunteers to cook for the congregation (ours is small in members). We are making a red beef chili and a white chicken chili.  Served with a green salad and Italian bread w/ butter, and sour cream and shredded cheese for toppings, it’s sure to be a colorful and hearty meal.  Kayla is baking up the desserts, she chose to make frosted brownies and lemon bars.

I scheduled a VA pick up for Monday, so along with the cooking, the laundry and watching babies, we have to sort, sort and sort and donate.   Oh, and I’ve got to work on that album for Kathy’s granddaughter.  We’ve also got packages arriving at our front door pretty steady, so we can begin to get our wrap on…presents that is.  Tis the Season!
