Project 365 Week 33

It seems like a lifetime since last week's Project 365 posting.

Monday, December 28,
It was the last day that Adam and Thien were here all day. They left on December 29, early in the morning. This is what some of Monday looked like at my house - memories that I want to etch into my heart....

Below is a photo of Adam, Aaron, and Rebecca...the Russell kids.

Tuesday, December 29
I was sad...
so I kept looking at the painting that Thien painted and gave Fred and I for Christmas!
Isn't it beautiful?

Wednesday, December 30
I was driving to work and saw the most wonderful sunrise!
God of wonders!

Thursday, December 31
New Years Eve 2009
Fred and I hosted a party to ring in the new year.
Here is a photo early in the night...a handful of some of the very best friends in the world!
I look at the faces in this photo and know the blessings that God has poured over me this year with these ladies! Each of them has a different place in my heart and each of them are my
BFF's!!!

And of course, me and my hubby....
the one friend who has stood by me through everything!
God was so good to me when He gave me this guy as my husband!

January 1, 2010
I did what I normally do on New Years Day,
take down all the Christmas decorations.
This is how simplified I left things...for now....

Saturday, January 2
One of my very BFF's, Lori, and I went shopping on Saturday.
This was the post Christmas shopping trip where you make any exchanges and spend gift certificates.
I was so happy, my son Aaron, took a picture of me.

And I came home with a throw for my sofa that I have been "visiting" in the store for many months. I used a gift certificate. I bought two pillows also. (the ones with the squares)

Sunday, January 3
Today when Fred and I went to church, our pastor - Matt - was back!
Tears rolled down my cheeks when he walked out on the stage.
(This might be an entire post, later.)
But I was feeling so upbeat that I cooked lunch for my entire family. This is uncommon these days. A simple meal after all the crazy, heavy meals that we have had the last couple of weeks.
Turkey Tetrazini (made the turkey for New Years Day) and sauted squash. yum.


Happy New Year!
