We had a good weekend....we had a light night on Friday, rented a couple of Wii games and hung out as a family. On Saturday morning Dave and Matthew picked up the Scout for Food bags. Then the boys and I headed to Matthew's friend Tyler's, bowling birthday party. We had a great time :)
After the party, Dave picked us up and we headed to our friends, Matt & Julie's house for dinner. Dave and Matt & Dan(Julie's brother) headed to the "man-cave". Apparently it is cigar shop where men just "hang-out"....They had a great time, relaxing and doing "boy-stuff"....While they were gone, Julie cut the boys hair(I will post pics) it looks soo cute! We are leaving it a little longer, and I love it! We had an awesome dinner, Lasagna, salad, bread and the best part... her Pumpkin Trifle, it was awesome. I planned to post the recipe, but I can't find my copy, so after I ask Julie tomorrow, I will post it. I plan to make it for my Thanksgiving here on Thursday!

Today, we celebrated our Church's 25th anniversary with a special two hour service at a local affiliated high school. Then afterwords we all (several hundred) stayed and enjoyed a wonderful luncheon prepared by our school's chef. It was a great time of worship and fellowship.
Then Dave came home to continue working on the house, while I dropped Matthew off at a birthday party, and Michael and I grabbed a muffie and a coffee, then ran a few errands.
Since we are still in "construction mode" here, after I picked Matthew up from his party, we picked up Dave and headed to Red Robin for dinner. Then stopped by Barnes and Noble to let the boys choose a book, because the school was having their book fair fundraiser day there.
Then we had baths, one Wii game of Sorry Sliders, and books and prayers.......
I had another blessed weekend with family and friends!
