Weekly Wrap Up and A giveaway


Happy Friday the 13th!



Are you superstitious?  I am not, but this morning my treadmill stopped working properly putting my morning workout in jeopardy 8(

It was a cold and rainy weather week so a lot of inside happenings...


  • Since we went to see the new Peanuts Movie last weekend, we decided to study Charles M. Schulz this week for Masterpiece Monday
  • The Giving Tree studies and a lot of seasonal books. 
  • The library had a fun program also that the girls and I went to.




  • The weather did not stop us from some charity/community service this week. 
  • Going to the local dollar store to purchase items for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. 
  • All year we collect our change and bring it to "cash in" so we can donate to the local food pantry. This year we saved up over $ 70 to donate!  I was proud of them and they were happy to turn it all over. 
  • Sammie is testing for her next belt next Friday and has been doing great in class. We are so proud of her dedication and commitment. 

  • Lots of fun studies at home. 
  • Where are We Wednesday brought us to Arizona this week.
  • Play-doh made an appearance for over 4 hours one afternoon.
  • My ONLY Thanksgiving decoration - LEGO Thanksgiving - do you need more?

What's on tap for the weekend? Glad you asked....

Tonight is my monthly Ladies Night In - my friend is hosting - always fun to see the ladies and catch up. 
Last soccer games of the season. 
Church


I have minor surgery next Thursday and could use some prayers. Anytime I am put under anesthesia I worry.  Already prepped meals and have my ducks in a row. Hubby is taking the day off to help out.  Probably won't have a post next week since typing will be hard (surgery is on my right hand).  

My friend, John, at CrossTimber is having a wonderful giveaway until Nov. 29th. I encourage you to check out his website and enter.

Enjoy the weekend and you can find me linking up at these awesome blogs:

Prayers for your surgery. Lego decorations sound like something my son would be all for! I blogged about our shoeboxes early this week. My kids love buying and stuffing the boxes!
