More snow this week! It's all so beautiful and almost unearthly. Ah! I love snow! :)


What a week this has been! So much has been happening (what's new? :D) in so little time! :)

Well, on Wendsday evening Dad and Caleb went to the annual Patriarch's Meeting with the men at our church, so Mom, Tiff and I put the kids to bed and watched "Emma" (the Gywneth Paltrow version, which Mom had never seen before.). After the movie was over (it was 10:00 or so) we all sat around and read books. Then Mom and Tiff went to bed and Melissa and I were stuck waiting for the men to return...with Grace Bandy! As soon as they got home we all rushed up to bed. :) Mrs. Bandy was so sweet and sent Grace with her waffle maker and waffle batter. So we had a delicious breakfast and then Tiffany and Grace went down to sew Grace's gown (for Liberty Day). That evening we decided to watch "Sense and Sensibility", since Grace had never seen it and the costumes are so gorgeous. The next day Tiff and Grace finished Grace's gown and we all dressed up in costumes, did hair and had a tea party! :) It was a lot of fun. Lol. We all gossiped, and chatted and talked about the latest scandals ("did you hear that Lydia Bennet eloped with a man named Wickham?"). It was a lot of fun and we tea partied the afternoon away. :)
Then Grace left at around 3:00 and we all piled into the car to go to the Neisens house! We had so much fun there! Sarah took me on one of the ponies and we rode all around their property, which was beautiful. It was so exciting! Of course, besides my shoe falling off numerous times, it was absolutly wonderful! And after it got dark we all went inside to eat dinner. After dinner we spent a little more time with the horses (which was quite hilarious, Grace was trying to get the stubborn old thing to go and it wasn't listening to her. :D) we went back in to play "Scattagories" which was also quite funny.
Oh, and I got photos of Grace Bandy's visit (unfortunatly we forgot the camera when we went to the Neisen's house.) which I will post as soon as I get them loaded!

You don't like snow?!
lol. well, i guess if what happened to you happened to me I wouldn't be to fond of snow and cold either! lol.
People keep telling me that I'll get sick of the snow. But...I don't think so. It's too pretty to get sick of. :D

How could anyone be sick of snow? Don't you love Scattegories?

Joe McLean said...

Okay, snow does look pretty while your IN DOORS. I don't like summer as well because it's too hot, but I'd rather it be summer then winter any day. Here we have the two extremes: summer we get 110º and in the winter we get -20º.

Darby, I LOVE scattegories! It was so much fun! I love wordy games! :)

Joe,eww. okay, i've got to admit, 110 is disgusting weather. yuck. when we visited Arizona it was 120 degrees! Talk about living in an oven!! :)

Have you ever played Taboo or Mad Gab?

Joe McLean said...

120º?! I'd climb in the freezer next to all that meat to cool off! I'm not sure how people can work in that weather.

You should comment on my blog. =P
