Last night we went to our ward Christmas dinner. It was a pretty good meal... ham, green beans, funeral potatoes, rolls, and pie for dessert. I made a tasty looking pie: graham cracker crust, a layer of cream cheese mixed with cool whip, and a layer of pumpkin on top. But, they had so many pies that they never got to serve mine! All that hard work for nothin'! Well, we ended taking one home with us (I made 2) so we could actually try it. It tasted great!
I was looking forward to getting the kids' picture with Santa, but Jordyn wasn't cooperating very well. We knew she would probably start screaming the second we put her on Santa's lap, so we decided not to stay for the whole party. It could have been a funny picture if Jordyn was sitting with Santa and crying, but when Jordyn gets mad...she doesn't just sit there, she kicks and bucks and will slide right off your lap! I also have a cold and wasn't feeling well either so went home.
This morning Tom had a "Youth Training Leadership Meeting" or whatever they call it. They have a breakfast and then the adult leaders train the youth on how to be good leaders, etc. It starts at 7:30 and he got home at noon! He had to give a talk at the meeting also. Then he came home, changed his clothes and went to work putting up Christmas lights. I have to say, Tom is such a hard worker and NEVER complains! For the past few weeks, he is at school all day during the week. Then on the weekends he works all of Friday and Saturday. Sunday is really his only day off and with church callings, he still stays pretty busy! I am probably not the most "supportive" wife either. Last Sunday in church our bishop was giving a talk and at the end of it he was thanking his wife for being so supportive. He said he is really busy all of the time and his wife never complains. She just lets him do whatever he has to do without whining or complaining. It was kind of a lightbulb moment for me because I ALWAYS complain when Tom has to leave! And I am such a whiner too. So, starting now, I am going to try really hard to not complain when Tom has to leave or be gone all the time. So thanks Tom, for working so hard for me and the kids! (I know, I'm so corny!)

Her everyone, I'm not new! Don't you hate the spammers out there?

I like your new layout.

I'm a big complainer too. But most of the time it's just in my head!

All of us need a light bulb moment once in awhile--consider what they could be doing instead. Tom is a jewel!

Hey Jewel,
That's not very nice. Granted it's not very nice to spam the same post thrice. By the way, I love your new CD.
