In case you live under a rock, there was a lunar eclipse last night – the first since 1628 – and I witnessed the rare event with two very special friends: Kimberly and Rob. We stayed up until 2:00 am to watch the eclipse, but it was worth it. After a country-style breakfast (pancakes and bacon), the three of us spent the rest of the day outside enjoying the sunny skies and warm 86° weather. It doesn’t feel like Christmas, but anytime with friends is a good time. Rob is visiting friends and family in Texas before he returns to duty in Honduras with the U.S. Army.
It’s been a very busy weekend, including the youth group’s progressive dinner Sunday evening. I did not realize how ravenous teenagers could be. Kevin and I prepared 10-pounds of chicken fajitas plus homemade guacamole and all the trimmings, there was not a crumb left on the platter when the 19 youth and 6 adults left our house!!!!!
Gearing up for another eventful weekend: Kevin and I depart DFW this Friday and are flying to Kentucky. We’ll spend the long weekend with friends and family in Louisville and Sebree, Kentucky. I am definitely looking forward to the extra family time. We return next week and immediately begin to prepare for our second annual New Year’s Eve party. I am looking forward to ringing in 2011 with friends again.
