Girls Weekend...........

So we had a great weekend! We went to Mooresville, IN to visit Nancy and Lori. Mom, Megan, Pam, Patty, Diana and Sandy all headed south and this is where we stayed....................... They live on 2 acres in a wooded area that is just beautiful!!! I had to include pics of the outside so you all could see the pretty flowers and fall decorations..............

This is the kitchen and dining area, LOVE all the cabinet space!!

This is the dining room going out to the sunroom and then the great room with the big ol' tv!! I didn't get any pics of their full walk-out basement but guess what they have?? A Ms. Pac-Man arcade game!!! Megan and I enjoyed playing that!!!

Nancy was so kind to rent this van for us so we could all go together! We headed to Morgantown to do a little shopping and eat lunch.............

Lunch at the best little cafe there! We had great food!!

After we did our shopping and ate, we headed to Apple Works. Its a very neat apple orchard/pumpkin farm. The day was perfect with lots of sunshine!!!!!!!!!!

We decided to go to a winery and sample some wine. They told us we could try 6 different ones. Some were good and some not so good. It was a great experience and most of us ended up liking the one named "picnic red".

After the winery, we went to Grays Cafeteria for dinner. It is kind of like our MCL we have here but WAYYYYYYYYYY better! Good home cooking! ha!
We went back to Nancy and Lori's and watched episodes of Ellen and Saturday Night Live. We were going to have a bon fire but we were all exhausted from being out all day with all the activities. We crashed around midnight and got up to a wonderful breakfast of: breakfast caserole, french toast caserole, Krispie Kreme donuts and fruit.
After we ate, we were given a good sized gift bag full of: Splenda, Johnson and Johnson products including band aids, lotion, medical tape and then a lot of Neutrogenia products. Nancy works for J&J and was so kind to give us these goodie bags!!! It was one of the best highlights of the trip! Don't we all love that kind of stuff!!!!
We headed our early afternoon and got home to have some of the day left. It was a great trip and we are already planning our next one!!!
Thanks again Nancy and Lori!!!!!

Happy Birthday, Emme!

Emme's birthday was September 16th. Kennady, Riley and Emme had gymnastics on that night so we celebrated afterwards with pizza as well as cake. Emme was so excited to be a "big" girl now!

Happy Birthday, Madison..........

A week ago Sunday we celebrated Madison's 11th birthday! I can't believe she is already 11 years old! We went to Jason and Jen's for cake and ice cream. Madison loves the Chicago Bears so her cake was the Bears theme. I thought they did a really good job and the cake was awesome!

Madison got some nice presents as you can see above.................HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MADISON! We love you!!!

Last week was pretty busy for us. Last Monday was Barb's birthday. Mom and I took her to Texas Roadhouse for dinner.
This is Barb with Sophie the day we moved into our house. Barb has a son, Jason, who is married to Jamie, and Barb desperately wants a grandbaby. We took this pic of her and Sophie to show Jason and Jamie if they had a baby girl, what she might look like when she is older! ha! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARB, WE LOVE YOU!!!!

Tuesday night I had a seminar to go to for work. KPI is promoting the DRS table(what I do there) and so I went. There was not a lot of people there but hopefully more people will call and inquire about it.

Wednesday night I went with my cousin, Becky and Lara, to a Beauty Control make-up get together. It was nice and I got to try some new make-up. After that, I was to go to Amy's for dinner and then down to Amber's to help her make stuff for The Paisley Moon. Well, I was leaving the make-up party and my Jeep would not start! It wouldn't even turn over!! So, LSS, Eric and Chuck came and took Eric's battery from his Jeep(we tried jumping mine but it wouldn't work) and put it in mine and it started! So, Becky took me to Amy's and Eric and Chuck went and got me a new battery! Thanks again guys! I was thinking it could of been the alternator so we were lucky it was only the battery!

Thursday after work, our office got taken out to Mountain Jacks
We had a very nice dinner and a very informative presentation. We all got appetizers, meal and dessert! THANKS AMY!!!

Friday, our good friend, Rich, came over and we went to dinner and came back and had some cocktails. He is going through a tough time now so please keep him and his wife in your prayers.

Saturday, we watched Beatty while Amber and Jay did the Layflats show. She was a complete angel and never cried at all!!! Kennady came over and so we went to Target to get Emme's birthday present. We took her to the Otterbein fish fry that evening and she slept most of the time, plus took a 2 hour nap in the afternoon! We put her down at 9pm for the night and she slept til 5:30AM and so I got up and fed her and she went back to sleep til 9AM!!! I was shocked! What a sweet baby! I think Eric held her more than I did! We really had fun and hopefully got a little practice of what having a newborn is like! Sunday morning I gave her a bath and she loves her bath. Always smiling and never crying. We hated to see her go home but I am sure her parents and brother missed her too! Thanks Amber and Jay for letting her stay with us!! Here are some pics of her(which I did not take very good ones). Eric had her laughing pretty hard but of course I didn't capture that!

Tonight, we took Kennady and Emme to McDonald's for supper and then we went and watched Eric bowl. I took these pics from my Iphone, so the quality is not the greatest but you can see they were having fun!! Their team is in first place and their name is "The Outlaws". ha!

Tomorrow is EMME'S 4th birthday!! We are going over to Mom's for dinner and cake & ice cream! This girl is so funny, you just never know what she is going to say! I will take pics and post soon!!!!

Happy 4th Birthday, Emme, we love you!

We hope everyone has a great week!!!
