My special time away

Today was a Tea Time for the ladies at our church. It was such a special time. Not only did I get to sit next to one of my favorite people.....Lisa Smith, but I was not interrupted, tattled too, or asked, "Mommy, what can I eat?" for almost THREE HOURS!!! It was wonderful!!

The food was so elegant looking. I say looking, because I couldn't eat a thing!! I was very good. I took my two point granola bar and my water.

Here is a picture of Jeff's favorite friend at church. She makes it a point to come and talk to us EVERYTIME she sees us. Jeff really enjoys seeing her. He asks her about her week and she tells him all about it. We all just love Miss Dorthy.

While I was having fun with my friends, the rest of the family was busy doing their own things.

  • Lauren spent the afternoon playing with three young children, so that their very sick, pregnant mom could rest!! She was a huge blessing to this family. The mom was able to take a much needed two hour nap. I am so proud of Lauren's willingness to do this without ANY expectation of being paid!! I love to see my children serving others. (By the way she is getting paid, we just didn't know it at the time!)
  • Jeff was cooking ALL day at the lodge. He never made it home once today until 7:30 tonight.
  • Emily was home "in charge" of the rest of the clan. She did a great job as usual.
  • Daniel and Amy spent most of the time outside playing in the snow.
  • Joel took a long nap and watched "Stines" (Little Einsteins) the rest of the afternoon.

Judith!!! what a sweetheart you are! I totally enjoyed my time with you! sometime i will come over hee hee...!!!


I am bad about this...Ask Sherry G. I was supposed to 'drop by' for weeks...i kept thinking...I am going to interrupt something, or she's probably busy, or she's not going to be home or she wants to be alone today, etc, etc ;)

i love you friend!

What a great time for you and Lauren was so wonderful to provide the ability for you to go.

Love the new layout! (well...haven't been here for a bit so I don't know how "new" it is)

Loved catching with your cute family.
