The lovely agenda of the Norman's for this week-it is a GREAT week.
Wednesday- The Solid Rock Christmas Party. They had an amazing dinner and we got to sing Christmas carols then...they rented a small theater at Living Room Theaters and we got to all watch "Elf!!!!!"...I ate too much sugar and popcorn. Not a great pregnant idea, PS. Oh, and one of the pastors dressed up as Elf!!! He is about 6'5" so it seriously felt like Elf was there!
Thursday- Jan's Christmas Tea with nearly 100 beautiful ladies and amazing worship music, great food, everything amazing in the barn with all things awesome.
Friday- Jimmy and Heather's Christmas Ball is tonight! It is going to rock. Let's just say that couple could win any dance show-hands down. And she has a little surprise up her sleeve (although I don't think her dress has sleeves-whatev)
Saturday- Matt's work Christmas party at the Governor Hotel (complete with a menu full of all things great that Jake's can make)!
Sunday- church and an acapella Christmas concert and possibly, just maybe, a trip to Ikea.
I wish I could express how loved I feel this time of year. I am SURROUNDED by people that I would call angels on their worst days. We have amazing parents, incredible siblings, beautiful friends, a home...and have I mentioned this week how unbelievably gracious and loving my husband is? Babe, as Jim said about Jan last night, "I love you so ridiculously much."
Ladies: let the Maker of this universe romance you first and set your standards and rest in who He has for you to marry. You will forever be grateful for the joy that is proven in His perfect will. And thus, marry someone you respect with all that you are. ALL.
Off to find an outfit that this watermelon "accessory" can fit into (which is getting more difficult by the day). This pic was at our Christmas Party last week with the Comers-the wee one has grown quite a bit just in a week :)
Have the loveliest of weekends.
xoxo, Anna N
Next weekend is CHRISTMAS!!!! So excited to celebrate the joy that that day represents for all of the world.
