But Sunday was much more interesting.
First Darly had to acolyte at Church. Unfortunately due to Darly’s age that means we had to attend the early service at 8am. Darly hasn’t had to be up that early in a very long time. I haven’t had to be up early enough to be ready for 8am service in a long time either. DH scoffed at both of us. @@
Fortunately everything went smoothly that morning and we made it to Church on time. It was a small service and was over before 9am.
BTW: We normally attend the 10:30 service and go to Sunday School at 9:30.
After Church service I had an exciting engagement to attend. I was going to meet my very first out of town blogging buddy. I got to meet Ladybug!!! What makes this so incredible is that Ladybug lives in Virginia and of all the places in the world for her sister to live, it just happens to be near me!
Yup, I was a bit nervous meeting for the first time someone I had only read about. But everything turned out just fine. We had seen pictures of each other so we knew how to find each other. But I have to be honest, I recognized LLB first.
We met up at Panera Bread and had a lovely lunch together, talking just like old friends. In virtuality we have known each other for a few years now. So everything just flowed as if we had been friends forever for real.
Ladybug is actually taller than I am, but I’m in a chair and she’s kneeling on the floor. LLB did the honors of taking the pictures. And oh yeah, I’m trying out wearing my hair wavy now.
Darly was a bit intimidated by B’s other guests. They were too loud and crazy for her. But once the boys left she joined in all the fun. We ended up staying until after 8pm chatting and the girls played. Unfortunately B’s family was heading back to North Carolina on Tuesday so Sunday was our only chance to visit with them.
oh and before I forget, I should tell you some of the goodies I got this year.
Kailani's Ornament Exchange this year. I got paired up with a really neat gal...MEL! So now I've added her blog to my google reader so I can keep tabs on her. LOL! but lookie at the pretty ornament she got for me...
And then being a glutton for punishment, I signed up for Leanne's Homemade Gift Exchange. For that one I got paired up with Jane. I'm reading her blog now too. Here's what she got me ...
she made me this one!and she bought this one that was made by someone else! Isn't it pretty! I love them both very much!
Since Sunday, I've been hiding out at home mostly. It's been nice to not have to do much of anything. I need to make sure that Darly doesn't have confirmation class tomorrow and we should probably scrounge around for some groceries and stamps.
Everyone have a great New Year's Eve...be safe!
