I don’t know about you, but it’s been a weird weekend here. I just haven’t been able to shake the horrible feeling I think each of us experienced upon hearing about Friday’s tragic shootings. Thank goodness we don’t have cable TV because I know the news coverage would just put me over the edge. It was bad enough that I broke down in tears upon seeing the front page of the paper when I brought it into work at the library on Saturday. Luckily I was able to get it together before anyone came in.
I just didn’t really feel like doing much of anything. As I said, I did work Saturday morning, and the boys attended a day-long Advent celebration at church. We did do one exciting thing, though… we brought home the two new kitties we adopted! Meet Pepper and Margo.
Pepper was going after some stray cucumbers that fell on the floor during dinner.
Margo was being so cute.
They are 6 months old and very lovey and very playful. They already fit right in with our family!
There was also tea drinking.
And gingerbread house decorating.
I also made a peanut butter pie for dessert and it was so super delicious! Yes, I will be posting the recipe later this week. But for now, I’m going to get the kiddos in bed, get in my PJs, and call it a night.
