Now Evan has a fever, so maybe the virus has morphed into an infection. Bless his heart. He is taking it like a trooper, though it means we missed the church Christmas party and then will miss church today. The storm never came, which is not a bad thing. Life around these parts, where folks are largely unaccustomed to winter weather, does get annoying when storms come through.
Anyway, I now find myself with a long day at home instead of a fairly busy day of choir practice and church. Not a bad thing either. This weekend was nice, with a good mix of Christmas cheer and getting things done. I learned that the term "White Elephant" does not always mean what I think it means, but that you can still have fun. Ha Ha. Thanks to Christie for being and extremely good sport. I also learned that a taste of the Nutcracker Ballet is just as much fun as the whole thing, especially when there are friends with you. I am just about ready to get all my mail out tomorrow. The 225 stars are finally painted. Packing the advent calendars will take a bit of work, but I think I have it figured out. Come chat if you see me in the long post-office lines. I'll be the one with the two giant IKEA bags full of packages and my knitting.
Also, I thought this was very interesting from a leader of the LDS (Mormon) church that I belong to.
