Random Fun

It's Monday! I have about 100 other things I should be doing right now and blogging IS NOT included in that list!!! :) But since I have no energy or inspiration to do anything else I thought I would get caught up on my blog. This past weekend we had a fall party for our Sunday School kids. There were about 40 kids and 15 adults in attendance. The Boardman's were so kind and let us have it at their house. We had pizza, chips, pop, and cookies. The kids had a lot of fun just playing around outside and then we took hayrides. Some of our little kids had never been out in the country and had never been on a hayride. They had a grand time along with all the rest of us!

Taking a hayride.

This is the first group that went out.
Getting ready to eat...

Alex enjoying his first pizza crust!

This incredible fruit boquet was sent to us from a family in our church last week for Pastor Appreciation! Thanks David and Maree!! We had a lot of fun enjoying all of the delicous fruit!

Alex has learned about the flash on the camera now! He knows when he sees the red light flashing that it is going to be really bright so he closes his eyes! Lauren snapped this picture and we both got so tickled at the funny look on his face!

Andrea and Travis getting ready to leave for Andrea's chemo appointment last week. Andrea loves it when one of the other kids get to go with her to St Louis. We try to give them all a turn every once in awhile.
Alex goes EVERYWHERE now! I found him under the piano bench the other day!
Well that has been our week (a small part of it!). This week looks to be pretty boring compared to last week so I am really hoping to get to work on all of my projects I have going in the boys rooms. We did get mattresses up in the boys room upstairs ( that is another story in itself! ). Now I need to finish up with painting and decorating! So I better run and quit putting off all I need to do! Have a great week!

Sounds like you are very busy. I know what you mean about not having the inspiration to do anything. It is great to see pictures of your kids, Alex is growing so fast.

Hey, Jenn, It sounds like a typical day in the neighborhood. I was in Kirklands the other day and almost bought something for you. Remember how you were looking for little coffee cups for the kiddos, well, I found a whole espresso set of six with the little plates and a stand and it was even on sale. But I talked myself out of it. I thought you might be past that stage of looking for it. Oh well, at least you were on my mind. Hope all is well. Holly

I don't know how you do all the things you do! You must have loads more energy than I do. I highly respect and admire you all...
