I designed and organized myself (work wise) and watched a TON of 24. The big kids played computer and Wii and watched some Netflix movies. And those were the highlights of the main part of the day - hehe.
But we did have plans for the late afternoon. We were gonna go to Amanda's house for a BBQ around 3:30pm.
I got to gmail chat with Captain America for a few minutes, but he needed to go to sleep, because he had to get up in 5 hours. Sigh. But at least I got to chat with him for a few minutes, right? I'll take what I can get :)
I made cupcakes, and wanted to put some cream cheese in them. I put most of the chocolate batter in the cupcake tins, then took the rest of the batter, and combined it with cream cheese, a little milk, and some powdered sugar. Then put a dollop in the cupcakes. Then sprinkled it with powdered sugar. They didn't look pretty, but they tasted pretty good :)
And we cut up a watermelon, by scraping it out, and refilled it with the watermelon pieces. I know, I know, people do it all the time, but my kids hadn't seen it - hehe. They were super impressed :)
We loaded up in the truck, and headed to Amanda's house. Jake opted to stay home, but the other kids came with us. Brian was just finishing up the ribs, and put the chicken and other meats on. Go Brian! You're a WONDERFUL griller. hehe.
The kids played in the little pool, and Amanda and I chatted. Here's her YUMMY pasta salad that she made.
Me and my DDP!
This is for you, Captain America They have BBQ sauce from Rudys!
Oh yeah, we had a FEAST! It was a great time. Thanks so much, Amanda, my dear, for inviting us over! It was a fabulous time!
I found Jimmy sitting on the ground like this, and just HAD to get a photo. LOL! Crack kills!
We headed home around 6:30pm, and brought food home for Jake. And had TONS of left overs. Which the kids continued to eat on for the rest of the night. hehe. I designed some more, and watched some 24. Actually, I finished off season 5. We did chores for a while, then I put kids to bed. Around 10pm. Yeah, we stayed up LATE tonight. hehe. But I think everyone had a great time during the day.
I sat down to blog at 11pm (I know, late, huh?), and watched some Hoarders on Netflix. OMGosh, it's disturbing.... I hope I'm not that bad. Somedays, my bedroom looks pretty messy. And my bathroom too... Maybe tomorrow should be clean the house day.... Maybe :)
