I was able to get some of my cooking done in the afternoon. I had done my shopping at Sam's and Walmart the day before and was happy to start filling my freezer again. It has probably been 5 months or so since I've done a major cooking like this. I used to do it every month, but when we found out about the move and that David was leaving in April, we switched to "eating up the freezer/fridge/pantry" mode. I didn't do any major cooking while he was gone, and so this felt VERY good. It was nice to "break-in" my kitchen too - and use it and my appliances to their fullest potential! :)
Saturday night, the band from church had a little shower for us and it was GREAT to have an evening to just eat and fellowship together! We are SO blessed to be surrounded by such a talented group of musicians, and even more priviledged to get to know them more!!
L-R Regina (her husband plays electric guitar, Laurie (vocalist), me (can't miss the big prego one), Allyson (vocalist - she hosted the party), Michelle (vocalist), and Jennifer (Jay's wife - he plays drums).
Allyson had made these cute little things for David and I to wear - they had candy pacifiers attached to them. His looked like a necklace/chain, and mine was like a corsage. Callie was totally in love with it. She's totally fixated on pacifiers lately - she never took one hardly a day in her life, but thinks they are amazing right now! anytime she hears a baby cry or sees one at the mall, she says "baby have a paci?"
