The Bee Hive

Sometimes it's honey; sometimes it's sting...

Chuck got the hay bales we needed for the Christmas program at the parish hall today. He called me so I could meet him over there and unlock the doors so he and Zach could unload them. So he set them up on the stage, and then he and Zach helped me finish moving the tables and chairs to the configuration needed for the Christmas program and party. I was sooo glad he stayed to help with that. I thought I'd be doing all the moving of tables and chairs myself, and those tables are long and heavy.
But the best news today, was that Roland dropped Shabree off here on his way to Corpus. He'll pick her up tomorrow on his way back through to Austin. We are thrilled to have her back, if only for a short time. She fixed and decorated the Wandette's Christmas tree and we moved the shelf height to accommodate it. Hopefully, tomorrow, I can get a photo of the finished scene. I got OUR new Christmas 'tree' decorated and it looks a LOT better than its predecessor. (My sister, Jan, emailed and said to save that photo in case she can find an Ugliest Christmas tree contest. I'd be a shoe-in!) Then Shabree and I went to Beeville to get her some winter pajamas, and she wanted the same kind I had so we could be dressed alike. She also got some winter church shoes and some Christmas socks. Then we ate at the taqueria and came home.
After a computer break for her, while I started supper, we made sugar cookie dough and put it in the refrigerator to chill. Zach didn't come with Chuck since he was at the Fire Department Christmas party until later. When he did get here, we took the dough out of the fridge and rolled and cut it. Previously Shabree had gone through all my cookie cutters and picked out about a dozen or so to use. After the last batch was out of the oven, I mixed 4 colors of icing for them, got out four kinds of sprinkles and a package of red hots, and let Shabree and Zach do all the decorating. I was ready to be off my feet.
