Morning, everyone :) Hope your day was grand! We had a good one :) Spent the morning at home. I took over the TV, and designed for a few hours, and got my stuff for next week all done. Well, most of it. I have one more pack left to design.
And that took most of the morning. Maddie and her girls went to Walmart and McDonalds, and my kids and I had lunch at home. Not enough of them wanted to go to free lunch, so we did bologna sandwiches here. It was easier for me :)
After lunchtime, Maddie and her girls came back, and Captain America came for lunch at around noon-ish. At around 2pm, Maddie and I and Lily and Ella headed out to go thrift store shopping on the East side. We left the boys at home to do, um, boy stuff - hehehe.
First stop was Goodwill. I found a brown sweater thingy, and a black shirt, and a teal/brown skirt. Next store was Big Lots (right next door). I like Big Lots. Didn't buy anything, but had fun walking around.
Next, we went to Fallas Paredes on Zaragoza. Looked around for a little while, then Maddie noticed that there was a Savers in the same shopping complex. I hadn't ever been there. I thought it was a food store, but it's a THRIFT store! Score!
Captain America met us at Fallas (he got off early for family day), and we all shopped together. It was a fun trip. I got a few pair of jeans for $2.50 and $3.00. Captain America got a $3 Sunday suit jacket, and we got a few books. Can't go wrong with books. Here's a few pics of us at Savers.
Eme at the checkout
Jake had put the breakfast casserole I got ready at lunch in the oven while we were at Savers, and it was ALL ready when we got home. Woohoo!
We fed the missionaries at 6pm, but they were late (6:30pm), so we ate without them, and they were gone by 6:50pm. When they left, we headed to McDonalds for ice cream and playland.
Here's a few pics from our trip:
So I decided to give the playland a whirl. Do you ever go and play with your kids inside the thing? Yeah, seemed like a good idea at the bottom. As I snaked and wound and climbed further and further and further from the ground, it seemed like less and less and less of a good idea.
I really almost started to panic. It was FREAKY. I was afraid I was gonna fall through the plastic and come crashing down to my death. I survived, but just barely... I helped that I had a slew of little kids behind me, waiting on my to move myself up the contraption. See how HIGH it is???
SO, I decided to take a video on the way down to document my journey. hehehe. And it TOTALLY shocked me all the way down - LOL! OUCH! You can hear me screaming all the way down - hehehe.
And a few group shots
So we headed home at around 8pm, put the little kids in the house, and headed to Leslie's house to get her bunk beds (she's just one house away). They're moving to Hawaii in Dec/Jan, and wanted to get rid of the bunk beds now. And we were HAPPY to take them off of their hands. So I visited with Leslie, and Jake and Tom and Hunter and Braxton and Captain America and John moved the beds from their living room to our garage. I hadn't seen Leslie since her surgery, and she was looking GREAT! Almost 20 lbs down :)
We came back home, and it was time for the kids to get hair cuts. Well, the boys, anyway. I plugged my computer into the TV, and started blogging, and Captain America started cutting. Here's a few pics of the boys. Everyone seems to be in such pain... ha!
So here it is, 10pm, and I'm ready for bed. Got my blogging and designing done. I've gotta get up at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow. Jimmy has his tonsil surgery at 6:30am on the West Side. I don't even wanna think about how early that means I have to get up..... Pray for him :)
