It was a very nice Sunday yesterday. I made up Cub Scout folders for all of our new Cub Scout leaders, and brought them to church with us. I got asked to give the opening prayer, and Eme bore her testimony. I conducted in Primary, and everything seemed to go just fine there. It was a nice Sacrament meeting.
After church, we had lunch, then took naps. Well, I tried to. I couldn't fall asleep. I hate that. I'm beat tired, and can't sleep. I just lay there. I gave it my best for 45 minutes, then gave up. I made Tom and Jake go upstairs with me and clean their room. I got a HUGE trash bag of trash, and 2 bags of stuff to donate out of their room. It looked much better. I don't know how it gets so messy so fast. AND, I found out where all the plastic cups in the house went. Those silly boys bring cups of ice to their room at night to read, then just leave them there. Sigh.
We were done at about 3:30pm, and I came back to my room to read for a while. I could tell that I was being hormonal and in risk of yelling at everyone, so I busied myself with reading. I'm sure everyone was grateful for that - hehehe.
At 5ish, we started dinner. I made wet burritos for the kids, and they LOVED it. I had a nice stir fry, and Captain America had his shake. We did some downstairs chores, and the house looked much nicer. Kaylee (from a few blocks over and from church) and her kids brought over some cookies and garden fresh orange cherry tomatoes for us. The kids LOVED them. Captain Americas excited about the tomatoes for tomorrow. The cookies sure smelled good :)
Later in the evening, we watched the 2nd half of Lonesome Dove. There was one part where we had to change the channel for a few seconds cause we really didn't want the boys to see a few scenes. But all in all, they really liked the series. Eme thought it had a lot of fighting and dying (which it did), and the boys just thought it was cool. Jim was the first one asleep. I think he lasted 30 minutes. We started the movie at 8:45pm, so that was pretty late for the little guy. Joe was next.
When we switched secionts (3rd to 4th), Captain America carried Jim and Joe to their beds. Eme fell asleep during the 4th section. After the movie got over (around midnight), we woke Eme up to make her go to bed. She's WAY too heavy to carry - hehehe. Especially up the stairs. I think Tom liked it most of all. He's WAY into cowboys and horses and such. And it was good that we were there to point out the things that characters did good, and things that other characters did that were definitely wrong. That way, it's all a learning time.
It's late now, and since I didn't get my nap, i'm pretty tired. I was glad that I designed on Friday, because I had all my wordart done ahead of time - I just had to blog - Woohoo for me!!! We're looking forward to a fun Labor Day with the family. I know that our Chick-Fil-A here is giving away free chicken sandwiches from 10:30 to close (or until they run out) to people in a sports team logo shirt. We're going up at around 11am to the mall. Should be a good time. The kdis are pretty excited :)
This WordArt request is from nachtstern, back in January. I know, I'm slow :) hehehe. On the day she requested it, it was A.A. Milne's birthday, so it was a very nice request. Well, now that it's 9 months later, it's still a very nice quote :) Click on the link below to go to my account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. Thanks!
