Currently: Vol 13

The last few weeks I have been doing a "Currently" post.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.

Thankful for:  Last week, we took the kids on a "surprise" mini vacation.  We told them we were going shopping, and out for lunch.  Something we normally don't do.

We loaded everyone back up into the vehicle, put on a movie, but instead of heading 45 minutes back home, we headed further east another hour.

They had no idea, until we pulled up to the hotel!

I was able to get an awesome family suite for a couple nights.   It was PERFECT!

This would be why I missed my normal "What I Wore", "Mother's Musing", and "This Old House" last week.

Working on:  Yesterday, my hubby hung the wainscoting in the half bath.  Besides a few finishing touches, it is ready for our New Years Eve party.  More to be shown on "This Old House" on Friday.

Excited about:   New Years Eve!!!!!  We are hosting the annual New Years Eve party again.  Even better, my sister and her husband are flying in for a visit from North Carolina. Some friends from North Dakota, and possibly my brother and his family, in addition to the normal crew are coming.  It should be a fun night!

Today, I started the little ones New Years Eve PJ's.  The older kids will sew theirs tomorrow.

 Praying everyone has a healthy and safe week.  And HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!

    1. Thank you! It is the kids table for homework, but also works great for sewing.
