Catching Up....

I haven't written anything since last Wednesday. Here are the brief highlights...

Last week, Kaitie asked if we could make a turkey dinner soon. I told her we could tie a dinner like that into our July 4 celebration, but that there was no way I was going to make it on the actual fourth. So that is what we did on Thursday, the third. Kaitie did a lot of the work, which was awesome. We didn't invite anyone to share it with us. We didn't put "company" effort into it. It was kind of a learning thing. Riley had us playing Mario Party during the end of our preparation. It was my first time to make gravy between mini games.

We had hoped to be swimming by Friday, but the pool is not quite finished, so we went to the movies in the afternoon. We went to see Wall E. Riley really liked it. I didn't care for the movie itself....too much lecture. That is a funny thing to say in a movie with so little dialogue, but that is how it felt to me. What I did care for, was seeing Riley's happiness sitting between cousins at the movies. Cute. Friday night we went to a great party. Everything we needed for a great party was right there: delicious food, good music, and the secret confessions of a blog stalker....;) (That was one of the best parts of the evening right there.) It doesn't get any better than that!

Yesterday, Jeff took the girls to lunch and on errands for hours. I spend a lot of time with the girls, and it is good for them to have dad time like that. Anyway, I had been wanting to dig into the corners of Riley's room without her objections. It is crazy how much I took out of there that she will never notice. Kaitie and Emilee were nervous because they knew what I was doing. I don't do that to people past a certain age. Well, I may have to take that back. I don't do it between certain ages. I wouldn't do it to my older kids, but maybe a couple of Jeff's things went for a long ride....

I'm so glad you guys came on Friday. I wish I had felt better. The night is a pretty hazy memory for me, but I'm glad I made it.

Tina!! That was a great night! I had a great time too. Thanks for being my friend too. I guess we should thank Natalie for "sharing."

I'm sorry that your pool isn't done! And I always feel like a thanksgiving dinner and it's never on thanksgiving. There's something nice about making a nice dinner without worrying about company. although it's fun to share it with someone else too!

I just want to know about the blog stalker.
