Sunday, January 20, 2013

Well, the party is over!  Everyone left around 2 p.m. this afternoon!  Everything that was scattered throughout the house (toys, towels, bed clothing) is now in the be sorted through and washed as necessary.  But, that will happen tomorrow!  I got a load of towels washed, but they are still in the washing machine.  Tim and I got ready to eat dinner and I realized I had not run the dishwasher which was FULL, plumb FULL of forks and plates!  So, I ran the dishwasher after church.  Tomorrow..............

As usual, it was a BUSY weekend, full of activity!  Michael and Jessica and Kara arrived around 5:00 on Friday.  Elisabeth, Hannah, Ryan and Abigail arrived somewhere around 5:30.  I had been cooking a beef roast with potatoes and carrots ALL DAY LONG, so when Liz got here, we got ready to eat!  YUM!  The left over roast was saved for BBQ.

Jessica, Terry, Michael, Chance and Thad arrived around 11:15.  Everyone else was already in bed and I helped Jessica carry in all the stuff while Terry sat with the babies.....he was feverish and chilling badly!  After some Nyquil and rest, he felt better on Saturday.

Saturday, the "boys" loaded up and went to the shooting range after a breakfast of donuts, cereal, fruit and juice.  The "girls" (and baby boys) headed out shopping.  The boys had to wait in line FOREVER at the shooting range!  The girls headed to the mall and the play area for the kids.  Then the kids enjoyed the pet store.  Next was lunch in the food court (don't think I ever heard where the boys ate lunch).

On the way back to the house after lunch, Jessica and I stopped at Walmart to get some cheerios for feeding the ducks at the park.  So, Jessica and I took the kids to the park (except for Michael, who didn't want to go) and Liz and Jessica Day went shopping more.  The guys hung out at the house.  Terry napped as he still was not feeling great.  Tim, Michael and little Michael played ping pong and did some computing and Tim did some office work.

The kids had great fun feeding the ducks and geese at the park.  Then they played on the playground for quite awhile.  Before leaving, Jessica took some group photos and we took a short walk.  Here is my FAVORITE picture of the weekend (which you saw yesterday, too).....just wish little Michael had been in the photo, too!  Aren't those just the most beautiful and precious faces you've ever seen?!  :D

Well, I was wrong about the Project Life 365 project not having a Sunday prompt.  I just missed it somehow.  Anyway, I do have today's prompt.....CURRENTLY READING.....I've got very few pages left to read in this book, but I just can't get into it.....I think this book could've been skipped and the 11th book in the series, Armageddon, should have completed the series with the Glorious Appearing of Christ after the Tribulation period.  Anyway, here's the book........

Speaking of books.....if you recall, my goal for last year was to read 12 books, one book a month, last year.  Well, I surpassed that number, I am happy to report!  I'll give you the list tomorrow!  I think my favorite read for the year would have to be the Left Behind series.

What a great weekend! Btw, the guys had McDonalds for lunch. :)

I hope Terry and Brad are feeling better. And little Abby!
