Menu's & Busy Week

We are back from GA and I am ready to get organized. This is our super, busy week at church. Our church's annual Living Christmas Tree is this weekend and the whole family is involved. The activities started yesterday with the kids finding out their places in the tree and running through a couple of songs, now this may not sound like much but it took 2 1/2 hours. If you have never seen a living tree, you may have no idea what I am talking about. This tree is built of risers and chicken wire, stretching from the floor to the top of the vaulted ceiling in the choir loft. All is decorated with lots of garland, lights, ornaments, and ribbons. Then you add in a choir of 100 or so folks and you have a living tree. It is gorgeous and I love the music every year. 4 of our 7 children are singing in the tree. Next week, I will have plenty of pictures to show of the tree. Our other children will be on lights, backstage crew or orchestra. Greg programs all the lights to make the tree "dance" & I am his assistant. Full, fun, busy week. We will be at the church Wed. night, Thurs. night, Fri. night, Sat. afternoon & night, & Sunday afternoon & night.
For the most part, the menu's this week are based on what I have, what can be eaten quickly, & what can be cooked in the crockpot.

So here goes....

Monday night:
Crock pot Pork Roast
Alfredo Noodles
Green Beans

Tuesday night:
Potato Soup
Cheddar/Garlic Biscuits

Wed. night:
Garlic Bread

Thursday night:
Chicken Strips with Ketchup or Barbeque Sauce
Cheddar Broccoli Rice
Lima Beans

Friday night:

Sat. lunch:

Chips & dip

Sat. dinner:

During the day, our goals for the week are to pack away the fall decorations & then Deck the Halls (I love Christmas!), finish up work for Co-op classes, watch History shows Dad recorded for us, start our December christmas movie marathons, & bake some goodies! Notice, I didn't mention math or language...we are done till after the New Year! Yippee!
