A Slew of Celebrations and the Weekly Menu

The Christmas Season is in full swing now in our household.  We have places to go, things to do and parties to throw from now until we leave for Arizona on December 29th.

Here is a video of our Santa breakfast last Sunday.  It is always a joyful time and my favorite party of the season.

Tomorrow night we are going to Frank's sisters house for her Annual Christmas party.  It is always a good time. 

The day will be spent getting ready for Marissa's Baptism on Sunday. She is very excited about being baptized into the Catholic church and we are thrilled as well.  It is a joyful happy event and deserves a huge celebration so following the ceremony at church we will be having a party here at the house.  Marissa requested Chicken Enchiladas (her favorite) so I am making a Mexican Buffet for the party.

Wednesday we are distributing the Christmas Baskets for the Food Pantry.  We will pick up pizza afterwards.

On Thursday night we are hosting our Choir Party.  It is a pot luck.  Frank supplies all cocktails and soft drinks.  I am making Chicken Marsala.

Friday afternoon we are meeting with Frank's brother and his wife for lunch before finishing up any last minute shopping.

I am sharing our Weekly Menu.  Next week I will be sharing our Christmas Menu as we host an open house each year.
