The World’s Quickest Weekend

This has been the fastest and busiest weekend I’ve had in a long time.  Friday night was filled with the football game and senior night.  Saturday morning began early with working in our yard and running errands (like picking up haybales and a thrift store find).  The afternoon was all about a special wedding an hour away.  Then it was off to shop for shoes for Sweetboy.  Oh and pick up food and items needed for tonight’s (Sunday) big deal!

We hosted the middle school youth at our house tonight for “Detour”.  Both youth groups have this event once a month.  Each time, they are guests at some brave family’s house.  The kids love this and have been blessed by many friends welcoming them into their homes.  When we were asked to take a date….we didn’t even have to think about it.  We love throwing a party!  Especially in the fall.  LOVE THIS WEATHER!

Our yard was covered with the fallen leaves….so hubby got down to business by blowing them down the hill.  We have a great place in our woods with a fire pit.  We know how much we love fire….so we thought that would be a great way to party tonight.  We surrounded the pit with haybales and plenty of hotdogs and smores….and we had a blast!  The kids did too!  Heehee.

We also had a fire pit on our back porch.  Some ventured up and cooked goodies there.  It was cool out (about 54 degrees) so it was even more fun being outside.  Once the kids had all eaten and poked enough fire….they came in for a game.  Their youth leader (Mark) had them play a charades game…..I think he called it, Sit Charades or Butt Charades???!  Not quite sure….but it was a scream (well, from where I was upstairs…cause they kept screaming!)  haha.

At 9:00pm they peel out and head back to church where anxious parents are waiting the arrival of their little darlin!  I’m glad they came and I pray they had a great time and want to come again.  It’s always fun to have people over (besides….your house gets extra cleaned then).  So much so, I’m having another party on Wednesday night!  This time it’s adults.  We are having a soup/chili dinner with our LLYWD group.  Can’t wait!  This group has been a blessing….and we want to show them some southern hospitality!  So there’ll be no spagetti noodles in our chili!  Haha!  Sorry Hoosiers!

It’s been so busy this weekend that I haven’t even gotten a  N A P !!  I really love my naps!  Oh well, I’ll have to catch up on them this week.  We only have 2 1/2 days of school, since it’s our fall break.  I can relax the rest of the week away.  Mostly, I can enjoy my family.  We’ll be hanging out and eating too much more than likely.  Ahh the sweet life!

I hope you had a great weekend and that God blessed you too.  His love is amazing and His blessings abound.  Just look around you and see.  All that is good…..comes from our Lord.  Thank you Jesus!

Youth kids getting serious about the game!
