Playing around

MWC and the Silent Auction

Our church is sponsoring two baskets that will be auctioned at Metro Women's Center's silent auction on November 13th.  We filled a garden basket and a picnic basket.  The proceeds will benefit Metro Women's Center and the Amazing Grace Home.  I'm really excited to be a part of it and really grateful to our church people for being so generous for such a great cause.  

Grandparents weekend

Last Saturday we went to Emma Krumbee's Apple Orchard with our church group, and my parents drove down to meet us.  It turned out to be a beautiful day although a little chilly in the morning.  And then Sunday, Matt's parents drove down and spent the night with us.  Monday the men went golfing, and Jack even got to go.  This was his first official time going, and he loved it!  I think Matt has been waiting for that since he was born.  The girls went shopping, and then we met for lunch.  They even got to watch Jack have a little school before they drove back.  It was so nice!

More Kidstuff

The kids have been running us lately!  From co-op to field trips to a play Jack was able to be a part of, we have been busy with their social calendar.  
Here's the co-op train in Jack's gym class.  Poor engineer's back!
We signed Jack up to be in a Children's Theatre production of Rumpelstiltskin.  It was just one day.  We dropped him off in the morning and were able to come back a while later and see the play.  It was just a fun impromptu thing.  He had 3 lines.  The first one was, "I'm so hungry I could eat a chicken."  (He got to make that one up.)  The second one was talking to the people, "You must tell us a story to entertain us."  And the last one was, "I'll marry her!"  The 11 year old princess.  It was fun for us to watch, and he had a great time.  

Today we went to Center Creek Orchard with our co-op. A little chilly and drizzly, but still fun.

It's booked!

Our amazing in-laws are taking us to Disney World!  Yes, we have been there.  Many times.  But ask me if I'm excited.  Go ahead!  OH YEAH!!!  This will be a special trip and time with them.  With family in the area, we usually stay with them and do Disney "cheap".  We have never stayed at a resort before so that will be a new element.  Anyway, we are very excited and the countdown begins.  Only 144 days!

If you're ever bored...

Take your kids to the Halloween aisle!  It's neverending fun!
