Highlights from Last Weekend

Yeah...yeah...yeah...I know.  The weekend ended two days ago and we are half way through this work week.  I've had very good intentions of writing this post for the past two days...I even e-mailed the pix from my phone yesterday...but I didn't have time to write.  So here goes! :)

My weekend technically started Friday morning.  I decided to take the day off so that I could work in my yard...so I started my day at Lowe's...$90 later, I had everything I needed (plus some) for what I wanted to do in my yard.

Next stop was Wal-Mart...where I shopped for our church kids' movie night...


Looks like I'm getting ready to go on a junkfood eating binge! We did an ice cream bar (aka make your own sundaes)...these are just SOME of the toppings!

After delivering this to the church and heading home, Mom & Dad came over to help me transform a flower bed that had been a bed of monkey grass. If you don't know what that is, please don't attempt to find out. It is of the devil.

Half way through our planting day, my dad received a phone call from my sister saying she had fallen down her stairs and had done something to her ankle. They went to pick her up...brought her back to me...and we were off to the sprain/fracture clinic. Thankfully, it was just a sprain. Her unsympathetic husband sent me this video later of Ayden's recreation of her fall...

I did get the majority of my flowers planted and my beds are refreshed! :)



Later I headed to Movie Night with my Clubhouse kids...we have some Hispanic children who have started coming...they tried to get me to play the movie in Spanish...which made me laugh.

On Saturday, I got up way too early and headed to the church where we had an Operation Inasmuch morning. This is a morning where we go into our community to do different missions projects. Our project as a youth group was to hand out water to runners/bikers/walkers at a local lake park. It actually turned out to be fairly successful since they were having a 5K run/walk. We handed out almost 400 bottles of water!

After lunch, the youth went laser tagging...Dylan decided to hunker down in a puddle during one game...


I promise that's just mud/dirt/water...

Sunday was a regular Sunday...church...and then lunch with these two (plus their mom & my parents!)



Ayden wasn't all about having his picture made until he realized he could be silly with it. Those bottom two pix were "posed".

All in all, a good & busy weekend. Hopefully, this coming weekend (another 3-day weekend - WOO HOO!) will be a little calmer. :)

Happy Wednesday!
