Our Week...

What a week! I'm not sure where to start, so hopefully I get this all right. :)

On Wendsday of last week, Dad, Mom, Melissa and William left for California, early in the morning. The Rigenbach family came to stay with us, and we had a wonderful time with them.
We had a lovely time making enchiladas, chatting, watching movies, and laughing (of course!). It's SO nice to spend time with kindred spirits, and the Riggenbach's are certainly that! :D

On Sunday, we all wore white Regency or Edwardian gowns to church and afterward stopped at Hancocks. The "strange" looks that we were given for our "strange" dresses didn't bother us at all, in fact it just amused us! :D After that we went to a graduation party for some relatives of the Rigenbach's and after that we made our way home. Really, dressing in what people think are "strange" styles is kind of fun... lol. Being different is AWESOME! :D lol.

I can't remember what night it was, but we decided that the Riggenbach's NEEDED to see "The Village," so we popped it into the DVD player and all sat down to enjoy a tense and serious movie, for once. :) Well, problem. We were all in a very goofy mood and, well...it wasn't very easy to keep a straight face through the movie. (Though Lily and I both jumped a foot in the air when "those we don't speak of" walked by. yikes. lol.) We laughed hysterically through the whole thing...even though the other few times I've watched it, it scared me to death. It's such a good movie though, so watch it if you're not extra-hyper. :D lol.

Anyway, so it was a very exciting week (romantic, anyway.). The rest of the family arrived from California this afternoon and it was so wonderful to see them again! Though, everyone was a little disappointed that they didn't bring the camera, and therefore we have no photos of all the places and people that they've seen and met. *sigh* But apparently they had a good time.

I'm going to post photos....someday. Not that I have photos of anything in particular, but, you know, photos are always so much fun. And what would a blog be without pictures?

So I'd better go. TTYL.

Bye the way, I think that some of the people that took your friendship test were cheating... I happen to know that they had one of your sisters right next to them telling them what to choose. Is that allowed? Lol

Jessica McDonald said...

Brooke, yeah. lol. We had this thing about red and yellow for a while after we watched that. If I wore red everyone would yell, "the bad color!" lol. it was pretty funny! :D

Anony, I don't think it really matters. It's not like a real test or anything. don't worry about it. :)

Agreed, a blog would be nothing with out photos. I try to post photos every once in a while but we don't have a digital camera so they don't come as often as they should.

Truefriendstest.com dealie isn't really "safe" as far as I could delete your friends answerers or I could see them and then get all of them right -- if I wanted to with out hacking in to your account. Cool, huh? =]
