Weekend WrapUp






We had a really great weekend. It was a very busy one.

It started on Friday night with Tim's prom. They went to the Ivy House for dinner, and we all met there for pictures. It was my son's first time in a tux....he looked great! And his girlfriend was beautiful. Here are a few pictures!

my son does NOT like to smile for photos, plus although he wouldn't admit it, he was nervous.


I tried to make him laugh....

...and eventually succeeded.



Of course I had to get into one shot!



They both said prom was "amazing". I'm so glad they enjoyed it.

After the picture session Elayna had a softball game. She did very well and her team won, again! I was supposed to work an extra shift that night, but ended up being cancelled, which was just fine, thank you!

Saturday was super busy but fun. On Saturday morning, Elayna had another softball game in another county/town. They won again, and she did very well again. She's really improving, and it's exciting to watch!
Afterwards, we went to Pioneer Days with my sister, niece, and niece's fiance. It's a craft show with lots of different activities that is held every year in a nearby town. We got some fresh veggies from local farmers and a pepper plant for our yard!
When we left there, we really got busy. We needed several things for the house, and several things to accomplish my Going Greener goals. We got the materials to make laundry soap, materials for a clothes line, a window herb garden, and several other things for the house....ran a few more errands and then went home to get busy.
Not like that, you pervs!
{That was later.}
Ahem! Anyhoo, we got SO much accomplished, it was great!


Then on Sunday, we were so exhausted we slept in...way in...and got up in time to pick up Andrew, then John had to work an extra shift. The girls stayed an extra night with their dad, so it was just me and Andrew at home. We were totally lazy!
The weekend went by way too fast and I was not ready to see it end!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and if you blogged about it, link up here!

ETA: Last week, I mentioned that my reader was down. Well apparently, it was constipated but over the weekend had a major blowout. I now have 740 unread posts in my reader! If I haven't been by lately, it's because my reader was holding your posts in. I'm going to have to mark all read and start over - in a NEW READER!! So if I haven't been by, I promise, it's not you....it's my reader. (GRR!)

Love the prom photos, your son looks so handsome. I'm sure he was nervous. My husband has never smiled in pictures ever since I've known him. (gee maybe it's me)
What a busy weekend you had! Wow, you are really going green. I haven't made any green items but I do buy Mrs.Meyers and other green things for my home. You would have really been tired if you worked that shift.

The prom photos were great :) Oh, I used to use Bloglines a long time ago as my RSS feed, but hated all the down time and it would do like you said, nothing and then Boom 500 feeds **shudder**. I switched to google reader about 2 years ago and never looked back. It is sooo easy to move your feeds (a download and an upload and your done!). Check it out!

Love the prom pics. Your son did look a little nervous... well in the first 2 & then he looked like he was getting into it. My niece has prom this coming weekend... I am doing makeup. Should be fun! :)

Jenners said...

Your son does look very very serious! I'm glad he had fun though ... seems like he is going off to a funeral .. not a prom!

Heather said...

Sounds like everyone had an awesome weekend-- The prom pics look so nice! Everyone looks handsom/so pretty! :)

Stopping by from SITS. First off I have to say that you look way too young in that picture to have a son in high school. It feels like my own prom was just yesterday meanwhile I'm about to go to my 10 year reunion. Time really does fly by.

They looked so nice for prom! I'm glad they had a good time. And congrats on the softball wins! That's great :)
