Caramel popcorn, cookies and more

Wow...Can I say I am defionatly full scale in the Christmas spirit. Glory! I love this time of year, espically now that it is cold outside. I pray it stays cold untill after Christmas....I even have a scarf on...A beautiful suprise scarf by the way that Shawna gave me during our Monday morning Beth Moore/coffee ritual:)...She makes it worth it to get up at five in the morning for sure.
Todd and I had a busy weekend. Friday we had dinner with the OverCash's and then Todd and I went out for a romantic dessert date to the Macaroni Grill. Chocolate ravioli. Glory!
Saturday I dragged Todd around town Christmas shopping. We actually had a great time. It is fun to be creative with Christmas presents and spread the dollars out:) Then on top of that we went grocery shopping, then I came home and cleaned house and made cookies for sunday night's church fellowship at our house. ..Go ahead just call me the Proverbs 31 woman...hehhe. Just kidding I am far from it.
Sunday fellowship at our house was a blast... Diane. james and Angela. Katy...the rents...and stephen and andrew. I made them play a cheesy christmas game..and they liked it....even if they pretended not too.hehhe.
I just love this time of the year...Then last night, i took turns between making caramel corn as presents for the ladies at work and watching the Survivor China finale, which I admit I have gotten addicted to...
Isn't this the most wonderful time of the year.....Jesus came to earth..Glory! He emptied himself of all glory to himself.....I pray next year I empty myself and try to only bring Glory to God
