Miss blogging for a few days and BOOM, I have way to much to talk about. So today you get a highlight film...only it's not a film...but highlights:
Just like everyone else in the world, we have been watching the Japan earthquake and following tragedies with awe and sadness. Our prayers go out to those affected by this disaster...and we're talking about a bunch of folks aren't we?
Friday Maren left in the morning to head down to Oregon with her friend Judy for a tax free shopping spree weekend. Yup, they spent the night somewhere in Oregon near a huge outlet mall and shopped, shopped, shopped, and shopped some more. By the time we saw her again Saturday night, she had a few bags of great buys waiting for all of us!
Saturday night was also so soccer night for Preston, but luckily his game was in Snoqualmie and Melanie invited us over to visit her, Court, Jack and Avery. The littles had a great time with the twins. Lots of bouncing and stuff like that. The Pizza was very good too! Preston's game ended up a 1-1 tie, which was fine as they were playing a very good team. The opposing coach had some very, very flattering things to say about Preston so he was a happy camper.
Yesterday after church John and Carol took us out to McDonald's to make it a Shamrock Shake Sunday! Yum! Afterwards Lillie went to their house to just hang out and relax. I picked her up at dinner time...good choice for me!
Here is Maren and Carol. And a Shamrock Shake. This was the last picture take of Maren before her new haircut. I think it turned out very nice, but I don't have a picture for you:(
This is Hansen showing off one of his great new shirts from Maren's shopping trip. A 3-D Tron shirt with 3-d glasses...cool!
Last but certainly not least, Hansen and Lillie got their report cards on Friday. They both did GREAT! We are very proud of them and the hard work they put into being a good student! Way to to Hansen and Lillie!!! Today is teacher conference day for them as well as a shopping spree at the Book Fair.
See you tomorrow.
