Saturday- Zach spent the afternoon babysitting Aidan while Lori was at her Weight Watchers meeting in St Cloud.  I went to Marvin & Gloria’s anniversary mass and then joined Mom & Dad at their anniversary party at St Mathias Park.  It was a very nice day with a great meal.  When Zach got done with his babysitting job, he went immediately to his friend Brett’s 16th birthday party. 

Sunday- After mass & catechism we braved the icy roads to bring Zach in to Trinity Lutheran Church to sell wreaths for Boy Scouts.  I picked him up a couple of hours later and came home, picked up Mom’s cake and bingo tickets and delivered them to the church.  I was supposed to serve today but I had to get home to make a couple of pans of bars for tonight’s Court of Honor.  We braved the icy roads again (and told Mom & Dad not too!) and went to Zach’s Fall Court of Honor where he received his Rifle, Archery, Physical Fitness, and Weather merit badges.  Yay Zach!

Monday- Because of all the hard work the Boy Scouts did leading up to Court of Honor, the meeting tonight was a fun relaxing night for them.  They played cards & games and had pizza and pop.

Tuesday- nothing going on.  Loved it!

Wednesday- Made my raspberry jello salad, cheese balls, and layered vegetable salad for tomorrow’s feast while watching the Wild game.

Thursday- A very special Thanksgiving.  Papa, Candy & Darryl, and Bonnie were able to join us for the day.  Mom made a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner as always.  She made turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole, dinner rolls, relish trays, pumpkin, apple & pecan pies and I supplied the few things I had made the day before.  Papa was so happy to be there he cried!  It was heartbreaking.  It was also nice he had all 3 of his children together for the holiday.  First time that has happened in YEARS!

Friday- Black Friday, The Event, Blitz…whatever you want to call it- it was exhausting!  Some sales started at midnight and others at 5am.  I practically ran all day trying to keep up with sales, stocking and returns.  CRAZY!
