Wow, this week went really fast. Not sure I have accomplished much this week or not but it is almost over. As a blessing to day I don't have to go to North Platte this next week, YAHOO!!! This is the week of Sammy's and Grandma Blanche's Birthday party on Friday...way to much is going to not be here. I would hate to miss it.
Tomorrow night Lance and I are going to a Valentine's Banquet at the High School that the Community Youth Group is putting on. They are serving dinner and then showing the movie Fireproof. I am excited this is Caleb's first youth event. They are raising money to help those who are going to Dare to Share, don't much about that but Caleb isn't going either. The rest of the money if there is any left over is suppose to go to towards the youth center that use to be the Turtle Butte Lodge here in town. The build had a fire in it about a year ago and the guy gave it to my Uncle Russell to make into a place for the youth.
Well it is getting to the time I am really ready to put the kids to bed so I can enjoy some quiet time alone. So I better get that done not to mention I still have to make my bed. Love clean sheets but hate to make it.
Haven't posted since last week so thought I should at least say something or allot of nothing.
It has been a very busy week but a wonderful week. The weather has been wonderful of which I have extremely enjoyed. Went for walks I think almost everyday but one. My van is clean inside and out. I love getting a clean van...even the oil is now clean :).
One day Marge and I worked on her photo albums...that is fun to look back and see how the kids have grown in just two years. There was one picture that I just marveled at, my girls were probably around the ages of 2 1/2 and then Samantha would be under 1 someplace in this picture. They were both sitting on Marge's couch in Gregory, they were so round faced it was cute. Emily most certianly looked like a toddlor and Sammy still was babyish looking. I said I wished I could reach through and hold them just as they were in that picture. The picture album we are working on is in 2007 which is the year that Harry pasted away so there are lot of memories in those pictures. We spent allot time with Marge that year and it has change much. We still spend allot of time together. We did allot together this week...I mentioned to Marge that we sure spent allot of time together this week and thought it was because the weather was so nice. She thinks we inspire each other when we work together in getting things done.I do very much enjoy the relationship I have with my mother-in-law. Well I know I have enjoyed this week very much. It was even more wonderful when I know I don't have to go to North Platte to the District Court as a juror. Please pray I don't have to go the next week, Feb 15-20, that is the week that is Samantha's and Great Grandma Blanche's Birthday. I don't want to miss their birthdays. I am hoping to have a dinner in their honor on their birthday the 20th. Grandma doesn't know about it or that my brother is coming home for it. So this month is busy busy busy. But I wouldn't want it any other way. I love my family and do enjoy serving them.
I am hoping to do a post on Samantha since it is her birthday in a few week. I want to post some pictures of her in the three years that she has been with us, so stay tuned. :)
