We had such a fun weekend! It all started with a party on Friday night - enjoying our last night with Jere and Reagan here at the house. ( we miss them) We had a fire in the pit, made s'mores with Reese's peanut butter cups, sent the kids to bed, and then hung out. I didn't get pictures, but Jere did, so maybe he'll post them :)
Saturday started with soccer games. Rebekah's was first - here are some of the highlights! Rebekah loves to play goalie! She has NO FEAR of the ball, or the feet, which is so foreign to me. I was always so afraid to get hit in the face. The goalie pinney is way too big for her, so she just hangs the thing around her neck - it cracks me up. The rest of the little kids are just always hiking it up the whole time.
This is Rebekah as goalie when she gets bored. Her team is really good - undefeated - so she gets a nice rest! Once she told us she likes to be goalie because she doesn't sweat!
It was introduction day. The kids loved to have their names announced and run down the line smacking all the hands! What fun! Rebekah even tucked in her shirt for this special occasion :)
... and so did this one!
We do see a lot of pulling up of the socks also.
Then on Sunday, we had a great day also! The morning at the chapel was great! It is so amazing to come together to remember the Lord when all the saints are prepared and the Holy Spirit is obviously leading in worship. I was very blessed by the Word and a great time of fellowship.
Thank you Uncle Todd for spending Sunday afternoon with the kids. It is always fun to be spoiled by an uncle! They went out for a special lunch at one of those Japanese places where they grill in front of you and you get to catch the shrimp in your mouth. It was very exciting! Then there was Monopoly, playing with the dog, and putt-putt too! Wow, what a day!
On Monday I was so tired from all that's been going on lately! We've been up so late and the puppy wakes me up more than I would like! Scott came home with these nice surprises for me! Roses, a special ordered CD of Erin O'Donnell, and he made me a hot Chai! Mmmmm.... I love this guy! He knows what I like :)
So, in all it was a great weekend! Full of friends, fun and fellowship... and ending with gifts! Now, can it get any better than that :) I thank the Lord for such a full life that He has given us. Each day is a gift to cherish from Him!
