Busy and Fun Weekend.

No pictures but in the nature of this being an on-line journal of sorts I thought I'd tell the tale of our Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday- Lindseth Sleepover. Bethany and Kaden and Amy came and played. We had pizza, watched a movie and went to McDonalds for breakfast the next morning. Did you know they have breakfast happy meals? I didn't. Oh...and we met Luke, Amy's new beau. I'll leave it at that so Amy doesn't hate me in the future.

Saturday- Painting the basement. Basically I bought the paint for our basement before we were even married so yeah, it was about time. We got it completely done in two movies. Not too bad.

Afterwards we showered and got all done up for a party that apparently had taken place the night before and although it was 10 o'clock I wanted to do something since I went through the trouble of applying makeup. On our way to the Nickelcade (hey, I said something, I didn't say something glamorous.) I got a phone call from Courtney Taylor! I was so excited to talk to Courtney, Aubree, Easton, Kim and even baby Jackson for a little bit. They sounded like they were doing well but I think they miss us just as much, if not more than we miss them.

The Nickelcade. It was fun...I had fun. I'm pretty sure Shawn had fun. And up until the end when we realized it was 11:30 and we still hadn't made cupcakes for the entire primary we enjoyed battling each other in ski-ball, basketball and other arcade classics.

Sunday- Primary program practice for 2 straight hours. Torture. Shawn made lunch, "most delicious sandwich ever" and then we napped for longer than usual. When we got up I rearranged the basement, reattached the power plate covers and painted wall decor for the basement. I hope it all looks nice when it's done. At least I can say with confidence that it will look better than it did.

Look at you Ms. Happy Homemaker. You are busy. I thought I was the expert at McDonald's. I had no idea they had breakfast Happy Meals. I'm not there that early. They usually make dinner for my family. Sorry you had a two-hour torture session in Primary. Just wait until some of those children are yours -- say goodbye to those long afternoon naps!

Michael and I had a date at the Nickelcade in Orem! It was a grand time, I remember.
