Favorite Kind of Friday Night

This is my favorite kind of Friday night.  It is so relaxing.  We picked up a take and bake pizza from Wal-Mart (Yeah, no cooking) and watched a movie off of Netflix.  We watched the movie Unconditional.

I liked it.  It is PG 13 for some violence, but it is a Christian movie and has an uplifting ending.  We popped popcorn and made flavored coffee so life is good.
Tomorrow I am going grocery shopping early.  I do hate to go on Saturday, but I really don't have any other day. I do wish I could work part time and have a day during the week to shop, but I don't.  I get so spoiled in the summer.  I love having the stores all to myself to shop.  Tomorrow is Aldi and Sams (maybe) and the bakery outlet.  I will also hit Kroger up for some sales if there are any good ones.  I am working to trim the grocery budget so I have to shop smart.
Well, I have some bananas that I want to slice and put in the oven and then put some laundry away.  I do love my new dryer, but it does make it so that I have to put more clothes away more often.  I will post my shopping trip if I get a chance.

New Year

We made it through the new year mostly unscathed.  Christmas was enjoyable.  My mom and dad came over and so did my sister and her family.  I love having little kids here at Christmas.  I did not like the excess of presents for the little kids.  I know that they are little and all, but I like for children to have a few quality toys and learning and art supplies, but not toys to excess.  I know my kids had too many toys and if I had to do it again they would not have plastic junk, just a few high quality toys.  Oh well, not my battle.

We also had a large group from the church over for new years.  This year we decided to shoot off fire works and our black lab got in the way.  He ran up and picked up a lit rocket and was killed.  Yes we were careful with the kids, but never imagined that the dog would do that.  The kids were a little sad and so were we. 

So school has started back and we are having a full we this week.  Back to college for me too.  I like it except for the late nights.  I prefer to stay home by the fire.

Here are a few pictures from the girls mission trip.  So proud of them!
