Weekend Fun

When I lived with my grandparents for a couple of years my Grandma always called me her Go-Go Girl. I'm not much for sitting around and doing nothing. Which is why I'm pretty sure that God gave me 5 children and such and large extended family! Just keeping up with our own kids keeps us going, going & going! So this past weekend was no exception. We started our Friday off with Daddy taking the day off and Mommy having the afternoon off so that we could take Gabe to use one of his gift cards that he got for his birthday and to take him to the new Rio movie. His birthday gift card was "wisely" spent (sorry can't help myself!) on this cute little Owl. I love the mind of a six year old and I can't wait because someday he is going to look at us and say what was I thinking when I named all of my animals? This cute little Owls name is "Friendlee Owelee" oh yeah this was all him! We still had some time to kill before the movie so we decided to take him to see the Easter Bunny before we left. Turns out that 2:00pm in the afternoon on a Friday is a great time to go and see the Easter Bunny there was no one there. So Gabe was really able to just hang out with the Easter Bunny. He was quite funny because he knew that the Bunny couldn't talk but he kept on asking him question anyway. Very fun to watch.
It was then time to head to the movies. We had seen the preview to this movie a month or so ago and John and I knew that we wanted to take Gabe to see it. Going to the movies isn't something that we do very often but it seems like in the past couple of months we've been going more often. A friend of mine got me a gift card for Christmas and we went a couple of time on that. Saturday took us to Myra & Johnny's wedding reception (Myra is John's sister, we went to the wedding in Vegas last month) for family & friends here. John & I all dressed up and ready to have some fun. I love getting dressed up with him.This picture though blurry is one of my favorite pictures from the night. Tony took his little sister out for a whirl on the dance floor. I love the look of pure joy on their faces. He is such a good big brother and they are going to miss him next year. He will still be at home but with work and college he for sure won't be around as much as he is now. Now this kid all I can say is OH MY WORD. I knew that he liked to dance but I had no idea that he really LOVES to dance and that he was nearly as good as he is. He had people taking his picture and dancing with him all night long! He went to bed that night saying "I love reception".zzzzzzzzzzzzSunday was Palm Sunday, Haley's Birthday Party & the Teen Pie Auction at Church.
I'll start with Palm Sunday service. All of the kids get to participate in this service they came in with palm branches singing and then also got to sign two other songs on stage. I love watching all of the kids on stage. After church we headed down to Nana & Papa's house to hang out for a little while before Haley's party. Nana found out that the Easter Bunny was going to be at one of the parks near her house so we decided to go down and check it out before Haley's party. They had a bounce house that they kids loved & of course what kid doesn't just plain like being at a park. This would be the look of pure joy on my son's face. He loves being outside and the simple fact that it was COLD didn't stop that pure joy & excitement.Hayden, Haley, Harrison & Gabe with the Easter Bunny. The birthday girl! I can not get over how fast she is growing up 4 years old already. Here she is showing off her new rain coat, hat & umbrella that Nana, Papa, Uncle Dan & Aunt Bonnie got for her. This is by far my favorite picture of her. Nana & her little princess Haley. Nana made Haley's awesome Tinker Bell Cake. Our last stop for the day on Sunday was back to Church for Sunday night service and the Teen Pie Auction. Every year ladies from the church make & donate a pie to the teens and then they auction them off to raise money for up coming mission trips. My pie is the one on the bottom left. It was my first attempted at this pie. My hope is that it tasted better than it looked! The fun thing about the pie auction is that everyone gets a free slice of pie to enjoy while they are doing the auction. This would be my little man enjoying his free slice of pie!I would like to say that the rest of this week and weekend coming up is going to be a little less full but I'd be lying. We will be going to Church Performances of the Living Last Supper that both John and Jordon are in, an Easter Egg Hunt, Easter Service & Easter dinner at both of our parents houses!
