The opening line made me laugh out loud.
"It was good to see Ryan recently. He looks better than he has for some time. He must be eating well."
Victory!!! Chalk one up for O.F.U.R!
I wanted to take the credit because we all know what a fabulous cook and homemaker I am, but Ryan said, "It's probably the interview dinners." Thanks, Babe!
Whatever the reason, I must agree with Grandpa Nip: Ryan is looking pretty good lately. Especially wearing reindeer antlers:
I am determined to enjoy the Christmas season this year. Ever since I started teaching, I've been so busy during December (end of the semester), that I haven't thought about Christmas at all. I haven't even decorated our apartment or put up a tree. How lame am I??
Well, not this year. We set aside Sunday as our "planning for Christmas" day. We decorated, put up the tree, watched the annual Christmas Devotional put on by the presidency of our church, ate "Christmas Soup," and made a plan for how we are going to celebrate this month.
We decided that Christmas is really about two things: 1) drawing closer to Jesus Christ, and 2) serving and loving our fellowmen.
So we are going to try to do both of those things every day this month in some small way.
I really want this month to be special and not too crazy busy or stressful.
