And we're just about ready! I am so proud of Wes this week. He has done the layout and printed the men's nametags and the conference notebooks, we helped him fold and/or compile the notebooks, bought door prizes, organized and planned a hockey tournament, and put together a gift basket for the preacher. Samuel picked up Bro. Mickey on his way home from work (Bro. Mickey said he was having a hard time riding with these boys he used to watch toddling around the church!) and delivered him to the house for a little food and fellowship before Wes took him to his hotel room. The front hallway is full of stuff tonight, awaiting loading in the van to leave at 7:00 tomorrow morning. We are ready, and we are excited. I don't know why I'm so excited; I'm not even invited!
My job tomorrow morning is to make homemade sausage biscuits for the road. I used to make these every Sunday morning in Ft. Worth when Wes was on the church staff there. I made one for each staff member (two for Wes!). It became a tradition, even when I was driving the church van on Sunday mornings and had to leave the house at 7:30! I don't remember ever being resentful of the expectation of a biscuit every Sunday. I really enjoyed doing it. I also fattened up a few preachers! LOL So in honor of that tradition and our former pastor being here, Wes asked me to make some biscuits tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow afternoon, Beth and Andrew have some friends coming over. Beth's having three girls come to watch Pride and Prejudice, the long one. Beth and I haven't seen it yet, so I plan to sit down and be one of the girls too. Andrew is having one friend over to play games on the new X-Box. I'll make our regular Friday pizza and maybe some brownies or something like that. We're just gonna be teenagers here tomorrow! ;) I still feel like a teenager, anyway. I might not feel so much like one after they all go home, but I will while they're here!
Well, that's our day for tomorrow. I have grocery shopping to do in the morning, so I don't know how much online time I'll squeeze in tomorrow. Bloglines has been down this evening, so there should be some blogs to catch up on when I do get online. Have a great Friday!
