It was a busy weekend with lots of different things going on. On Saturday morning, I put ribbons and bows on all the Christmas gifts. I'm no Martha Stuart(!), but even simple ribbons and store made bows make presents a little extra special!
Jay finished painting the cabinets(hooray!) and rehung the doors! Now we just have to put up the backsplash and then I will share pictures:)
Thanks to my sister-in-law and Sarah, Jay and I both got to go to Jon's first basketball game of his senior year. It was a date afternoon! It got even better when 2 of our closest friends were at the game, too, so they could watch their daughter cheer......double date afternoon!
(Can you tell we don't get out much?)
Sunday was a tough day. Sarah had something going on with CCD that Jay needed to go to with her. We had to split Masses and then Jay was gone until 1:30. I was pretty emotional all day because my grandmother is in her final days. It's stirred up a whole lot of messy emotions that I will share soon in a separate post.
After watching the Patriots lose (boo), Jay and the girls did some Christmas shopping. They didn't get home too late, and Jay and I spent the rest of the night watching movies on the Hallmark Channel. (Which is very cathartic when you are feeling sad.)
Yesterday, I went to visit my grandmother. It was sad...but gave me a lot of peace. I will share more details later in the week.
Yesterday afternoon, I went Christmas shopping with my sister and dad for my mom. It was a full day! When I got home, I was a lump on the couch!(And, yes, Jay and I watched more Hallmark movies:)
Today is a new day! Off to work then lots of laundry and paperwork to catch on...so exciting!;) This week is B.U.S.Y.(!) and is going to fly by!
