This and That

The blood drive went well. Chad gave for the first time and did great (thank God....I wouldn't want to be the one to catch him if he passed out afterwards)! I think the NHS met their goal of donors so it was a good day!


I got my xmas dinner grocery shopping done yesterday. That sure is a load off my mind! The meal is planned and everything is bought and ready to be cooked.


Chad bought 14 more cows this week (actually Jeremy bought 7, Courtney bought 5 and the other 2 we bought) so we had to tag them's a good thing both kids' grades are good enough, neither one of them had to take finals so they were both home today to help!!


My brother and his girlfriend are coming in tomorrow (5.5 hour drive)....just in time to jump in the vehicle again and head to basketball games in Groton (1.5 hours). It's a double header tomorrrow so both kids play.


My nephew got out of the hospital and is doing good....thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.


Heading to my niece Kennedy's basketball game tonight. She is in 5th grade and a blast to watch...she's one aggressive little girl!


Still hoping to get some baking done...maybe tomorrow or Saturday. I didn't get a chance to check out everyone's blogs today but am hoping to make the rounds tomorrow.

Sounds like a full weekend. Good luck to all to win their basket ball games. Our school is playing in a terment(sp) after Christmas. It is being hosted at our High School. We have 3 gyms so the girls are playing in one, the JV boys are playing in one, and the varisity boys and girls are playing in another. I am so glad we just have to buy one ticket to see it all. I am glad your nephew is doing good. Have fun and safe travel.

Love and Hugs,
