I am sitting here in the quiet, having got up early to make dh's lunch and send him off to work I have been the only one up for awhile, my middle child just came down the hall but he his not quite awake. The other 2 children are still asleep. I love lazy summer mornings!! We woke up this morning to
RAIN GLORIOUS RAIN!!!!!
Our garden, needed it to be sure!! The 2 short bursts of rain we got this past week has really made the pumpkins take off so I can only imagine what this awesome soaking rain will do for the garden!!!
How was your weekend??
Ours was busy but productive and wonderful!!!
Saturday we stuck pretty close to home for the most part, we did till in the garden, mow, and ran the weed-eater around the garden fence, dh repaired a piece of fence that it looks like a deer tried to get into the garden, thankfull it didn't. We came in and showered because it was 101*+ and we were dripping after working in the yard, then we met up with a former scout parent and picked up our scout float from him and are storing it at my mothers for the time being. We came home and worked in the house some but the heat really zapped us so we were happy to just relax and watch a movie for the most part!!! I think the guys especially the Hubs stayed up way too late watching tv because come morning everyone was having a hard time getting up infact dh was still asleep when I left for church. I left him sleep and told the boys to stay quiet so he could rest and Baby Girl and I went to Church.
*Cute side note, I'll be cuddling Kara and ask if she is momma's "baby" to which she replies " I mommas howny baybee" So I've been calling her Honey Baby!!
Church was wonderful!!! Kara was super excited to be there and she just chatted and chatted, it was a chore trying to keep her quiet during the service, our Pastor who has a young child hisself - Thanked God for the voices of small children because they are truely a blessing to us- during one of his prayers. He really is a great Pastor!! Of course Kara wasn't the only little person chatting and socializing!! I love our church!!
Soon all the littles were called up for children's time and then after led out to their "classes"
The rest of church was great!!!
After Church, Kara and I came home, I made lunch for all the kids and then made dinner for the kids and put it in the fridge, I tidied up a bit, then got myself fixed up and Kara and I went to pick up the sitter. We left the kids here in capable hands, with instructions on cooking the dinner, then Mike and I went out to dinner and to a movie!! Gosh I can't even tell you the last movie I saw in a theater... I'm guessing it was maybe the Polar Express?? It has been quite a while.
Dh took me to Outback Steak House for dinner, it was AMAZING!!! Then we went to see The Avengers!! It was equally good!! We had such wonderful time!!! We came home and the kids were great, they had a wonderful time with the sitter!!! She really is a sweet girl, she is 15 and the daughter of a great friend and the best part is she only lives about a mile from us. GREAT with my kids and we adore her!!!
We ended the evening hanging out and watching a show with the kids, I crocheted a bit, I really should be more diligent about it concidering I have 4 babies needing blankets that are due before the end of the year!! YIKES!!! I gotta get busy!!!!
But that was our weekend, busy, productive, family filled,and wonderful!!!
My day today will be somewhat busy, I need to take dh's gram to the dr, do a little shopping and work on the laundry and then there is VBS!!! And this year I am a leader!! Whoo, I don't know what I was thinking when I signed up but I'll handle it and I am sure it will be a wonderful time!!!!!
Oh and before I forget it is Monday I probably should post our menu right??? :)
Tonight- BLT's and Cukes from the garden
Tuesday- Chicken alfredo with mushrooms and broccolli
Wednesday-Hamburgers and chips
Thursday-Lasagne and garlic bread
Friday- Hm Pizza
Weekend?? Thats kind of up in the air, if the temps cool down like its supposed too we will probably grill out being that its will be Dh's last weekend before his Septum surgery on the 16th, he probably isn't going to want much to eat and if he does it will probably be something soft that he asks for. Poor fella!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
