Wonderful Weekend

My family had such a good weekend...I just wanted to share it in pictures. Saturday was very nice because we didn't do much of anything. Hubby had a work meeting from 7:00 am to 11:00am, but he got a free breakfast out of the deal! She it made it worth it in some ways which is good. The things they talked about at the annual meeting didn't apply to hubby at all. They talked about 401K's, insurance, drinking, drugs (the policies) and other things of that nature. We did find out though that his company (as a whole) drove over 5 million miles last year. That equals to driving around the earth almost 200 times! After his meeting he came home and he and DD took a much needed nap. During their nap I took DS and Little E to the store to pick up some much needed items. That evening we just "relaxed" together as a family. Here is a picture of DD eating one of her favorite foods...Black Olives! She pretty much polished off a whole can! (I think the rest of the family only had about 6 or 7.)

On Sunday...we went to church and had a good service. Just strange with so many people missing. But afterwards we got up the "courage" to take the family to watch our oldest niece play in the Mansfield Youth Strings at the beautiful Renaissance Theater in Mansfield. It is amazing to sit there and listen to that music and realize majority of those students (they come from many different schools) are only about 12-15 years old! Just amazing. Here are 2 very short clips from the concert. This was her last concert in the youth strings. She hasn't made a decision yet, but she may try out for the Knox County Symphony Orchestra. (Her mom plays in it as well.)

Then after her concert it has become "tradition" for everyone to go and eat out at Steak and Shake. I am so proud of my other niece too. Last year for her birthday we gave her a crochet hook. That's it! Just a hook and now she doesn't go anywhere without her crochet. Here is a picture of her crocheting in Steak and Shake! Isn't it wonderful! ;) Who would have known that such a simple gift (almost a year ago) would spark such "passion." =)

Well, that is all for now. May you all have a blessed week!
