Happy Mother's Day! I hope today finds you celebrating and/or being celebrated!!
It's been another busy week around here but as you will see we found time for a new toy.....Here's a peek!
Small group night. After we're done people usually go back and nibble a little more food before heading out. Some people do this.....
This is Melissa. She is our babysitter and one very special lady!! She was having a little whipped cream and I caught her!!
Made these today...
The Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls, otherwise known as YUM!!!
For dinner our small group ladies surprised one of our friends that moved to Alabama on Friday. We had a lot of fun, great conversation and it just happened to be two of their birthdays.
This is our group. The only one missing was Carrie. I am SO THANKFUL for these women! They are real, caring, praying and faithful friends!!
Today we received a new toy. Berette, our friend moving to Alabama got this game for our family.
This game is AWESOME!! It's dancing but all you use is the Wii remote. Our whole family loves it and we have been playing it like crazy. It is also a fantastic workout.
The kids playing Just Dance.
Tonight Kevin and I went to the Spring choir concert at our high school. This was Melissa's last concert and we wanted to see and support her. (You know, the same Melissa with the whipped cream) I have had the honor of being Melissa's voice teacher for 4 years and she is very talented, but more than that she is a treasure. She is beautiful, intelligent, funny, loving and she is strong. Strong in her will, in her love and in her faith. I am going to miss her when she heads to school in the fall but can't wait to see what God has planned for her!
Isn't she gorgeous?!
When we got home around 10:40 or so we saw this when we pulled in.
Notes from the kids. One said, "buying lunch" and the other two were random notes from the girls. Too funny! Guess they wanted to make sure we saw them.
Tonight we had family dance night! 4 people can play Just Dance at a time so we would rotate in and out. We played for over an hour a half straight. So much fun!!
There was some serious groove being thrown down tonight!
We kept our friend's kids tonight while they went out to dinner. When they came back the four adults played Just Dance. (surprised, aren't you?) Because we were all playing and the kids were all off playing in other rooms, I don't have an actual picture of us, but it was fun! So just to remind you what the game looks like...
If you haven't figured out.....we LOVE this game. If you like to dance I would encourage you to give it a try. It has a great mix of songs, some oldies, 70's & 80's and more current. The lyrics are ok for the kids and the words even come up so you can sing along. Plus it's great exercise!!!
Hope you've had a super week!!
