menu plan monday ~ december 15, 2014

It took me a while to get back up to gear after the open house. DH took that Monday off work, which was nice. Our son and his wife were here until Wednesday afternoon, which was also nice. We enjoyed our visit with them.

In a few days, we will host a house concert with Nathan George, Mark Stoffel, and Henry Haffner. One of my favorite holiday events! I am so excited that they are able to return this year. The weather service is forcasting snow showers for Thursday morning, but otherwise, it looks pretty good.

On Saturday, my side of the family will gather here for our family Christmas party. Everyone’s bringing finger food. Should be a fun day!
