Family Portrait

Morning, girls :) Hope you have a very good Sunday! Mine was pretty good, I must say. I woke up around 9am, and went back to sleep till 10am. Yeah, I'm loving 12:30pm church. The kids got themselves breakfast and watched some church videos, and then we all got snack at 10am. And yeah, I got snack and breakfast. hehe.

We got ready for church, and were actually ready about 15 minutes early. So we all went outside and took new family pictures. I brought out a stool and a chair, and some playdo to make the camera stable, and set the timer, and here we go. I only had to Photoshop one child (ha!). Below is a few different "actions" from Pioneer Woman on the same photo.

So we loaded up and headed to church, after I put some food in a crock pot for after church. And we ended up being about 3 minutes late for church. And it was the Primary program, so the church was PACKED! They ended up opening up the gym and setting up more chairs. We sat in the back, but at least we got a seat. ha!

The kids all did very nicely on their parts. Joe was the first primary kid to talk, and seemed a bit nervous, but did a great job. Jimmy and Emeline did a very nice job too, and Tom gave an excellent talk.

Sunday School and Relief Society were very nice, then it was time to go home. We snapped a few more pictures before we finally got inside the house.

And this is what was waiting for the kids when we got home. I put 5 diced/peeled potatoes, 1 diced onion, 3 stalks of celery (diced), 1 packet of brown gravy mix, 1 package of turkey sausage (chopped), a few handfulls of white rice, and some Italian seasons with a lot of water in my crock pot on high, and it looked like this when I got home.

So we dished up food for the kids, set them up with a movie after eating, and Captain America and I took a nap. I slept for about an hour, then came out and joined the kids and their movie. And had dinner. I Photoshopped my family pictures, and worked on that for a while.

At around 6:30pm, Captain America was awake and we all did chores, had family prayer and scripture study, and sent kids off to bed. It's not 8:18pm, and I'm done for the night. Captain America and I need to work on the budget for a bit, and I need to clean my room.... We'll see how productive I end up being. ha!

I kept wondering why Brent wasn't in your family portrait, and then I finally saw him in your final photo so I went back and checked the first ones and sure enough, he was sort of there, just cropped out for some reason. I suppose the photos loaded funny or something?

BTW, I sent you an email the other day. Perhaps you'll get to it one of these months. LOL!
