We had a long weekend at home. Today was President's Day and there was no school.
The weekend on started on Friday evening with a party at the church building. It was "Ladies Night Out" where the men do all the preparation, planning, decorating, cooking and cleaning up. The theme was "Yesteryear Memories" and we were to dress up as we did when we were in high school. We also had previously given our high school picture to the coordinator and then had a little slide show. It was fun. The kids had babysitters and played their own games and such in the library.
Then on Saturday Ed went to help Gage do some insulation work on their house. So, us girls stayed home and did our thing. Well, actually we did run a few errands (I'm starting to teach the Fruit of the Spirit in Bible class and wanted to find some things to decorate or fun things to do in class and in this town it is rather hard. The only thing I bought was some fabric to put on the bulletin board!) We did eat lunch at the mall - Chinese our favorite! But here are the highlights from home.
The girls got out the paints and painted some shoes and witches hat which their Nana sent for Halloween.
Then they went into the garage to ride some bikes.
However, she's not very good at steering and was always getting it stuck. So she would get out and try to push it. It didn't work and Hannah or I would have to come and rescue her, but she had fun.
They also rode their bikes.
Then the played in what's left of the snow. They had all the bikes and cars and scooters by the front door and were doing some kind of make believe story. They made this cake in the snow with chalk.
While they were doing that, I was making dinner. I decided to use the last squash we had. I grew acorn squash in the garden and put them in the garage to "winter." For some reason they turned orange, but still tasted good, so we ate them.
