Visiting Family

I can't believe how quickly the weeks are flying by. The older I get, the faster it goes, I think - hehehe.

So I woke up at 7am, showered, got ready, and decided which of my new Fallas Paredes clothes I was gonna wear. hehehe. I decided on this new black and white shirt. It is satiny, and feels nice. I liiiiiike it :)

All 12 of us got up and got ready, and headed for church. Captain America had an 8:30am meeting, so he took his car, I took my dad, Joe, Jim, Tom, Jake, and Ella. Madi, my mom, Lily, and Eme went in Madi's car. We got to church in time to get our regular row :)

Church was good. I helped Maddie get Ella and Lily to nursery, then we went back to Adult Sunday School class and sat in front of my mom and dad. There was a combined Priesthood/Relief Society/Young Men/Young Womens meeting 3rd hour, where we talked about Visiting /Home Teaching. It was a nice meeting.

After church, we all headed home. We changed out of Sunday clothes, and I had the kids all hang up their dressy clothes for next week. We made bagel sandwiches for everyone for lunch, and Maddie and I had my normal diet food.

After lunch, we took some pics of all the people. Looking back, we should have had each of the kids get their pictures taken with Grandma and Grandpa. Yeah, I messed that one up. hehe.

Here's Tom

And EMe

And Eme in Maddie's "room" when we put up darker blankets over the windows under the curtains so the little girls would nap better

Lily and my mom and my dad


And me, right before I took my parents to the airport.

So after I dropped them off in time to catch their 245 pm flight, I hurried back and hung with the kids and my sister. We watched movies with the kids, and made snacks, and sat in the backyard, and just let the kids play.

We did have mandatory quiet time at one point. hehehe. Lily was napping, and we sent all the other kids to their rooms, and we just sat in the quiet. Let me tell you, it was a nice, peaceful 30 minutes - rofl!

I made shake and bake chicken for dinner, with fresh corn on the cob, and rice a roni for dinner. The kids seemed to like it :) Of course, Jimmy wanted to know what was for dessert. Nice try, Jim - hehehe.

I put my kids to bed around 8pm, and spent about 20 minutes helping Eme and Joe and Jim get their rooms straightened up. They'd trashed it, of course. It looked pretty good when I came back downstairs.

I hung with Maddie and her girls until around 9pm, when Captain America came home from where he'd been. I left Maddie and her girls to the "Bee Movie", and headed to hang with Captain America in my room. I love talking with my bestest friend :)
