I have had THE best weekend!!!!
It started leisurely with several hours of puttering around putting more Spring/Easter debris here and there!! In the late afternoon, Louis Dean and I cleaned up and drove over to Arlington to an All You Can Eat Pancake Supper to support my oldest grandson's Boy Scout Troop! #379!!
Meet my first born son, Jesse!
I don't often get to blog about him and the family!
He is deeply involved with all three of his children in ALL of their activities and is a great example of fatherhood!!!
The Boy Scouts is a fine organization to be a part of!!!
This is Troop #379 and my grandson is in the middle on the right!
Louis Dean was pretty impressed with the food that night!!
Photo from Jesse!
They cooked up 300 HUNDRED pounds of meat for the Pancake Supper!!!
Louis Dean did his share of eating!!!! Sausage, bacon, pancakes complete with melted butter and heated syrup and coffee, milk or water! ALL you can eat!!!
My first born granddaughter, Faith, served the cold beverages.
Yes, she pointed out that she is taller than I am!!!
This is Sam!!!
He is WAY taller than I!!!
My sweet Levi! I am STILL taller than he is - for now!!!
Faith was intrigued by Louis Dean's PHONE!!!!
He has a dinosaur FLIP PHONE!
She asked, "What is THAT??"
If you follow me on Instagram - then you know I seldom post anything!!!
You may have noticed a recent gush of photos!
Those were actually the work of my granddaughter, Faith!!
Now that I have had a lesson or two - I certainly know a whole lot more than I did!
However, I do NOT know how to save an Instagram photo so I can use it here!!!
I will ask her on Tuesday when we have a date to go for yogurt after school!
PLUS, she helped me restore the settings on my iPhone after Kailey recently got hold of it and changed them all!
Levi is such a good sport! He told me he had been there FIVE HOURS when we arrived!
He had spent much of that time practicing his moves on his racer! Levi is seldom bored - always finding ways to entertain himself and everyone else!
Our Levi is a sports extreme kind of guy!!!
He showed us what he can do on his racer!!!
We just had so much FUN with them Saturday night!!!
A cool car in the parking lot!
We actually followed it part way to take Faith and Levi home!
Sam and his dad stayed to clean up and we went back to their house to hang out awhile!
Those kids are so much fun!
Faith showed me her newly redecorated room and Levi showed me his video game!
Mine-something!!! It was interesting and Levi was so QUICK on it!!!
He set up a whole landscape and will show me on Tuesday when I go back how much he accomplishes. I hope to memorize the NAME of the GAME then!
We came home and went right to bed!!!
Nothing like a wonderful evening to prepare you for a good night's sleep!
Rain is in the forecast here for the next WEEK so Louis Dean stayed home to work on the stone patio just outside our kitchen door.
I went to church!
The first Sunday of the month is Communion Sunday and a special service I always look forward to.
Next to the service, my FAVORITE part of church is going to the nursery to pick up the quads!!!!
We have a family tradition of going to Dickie's BBQ for lunch and that's what we did today!
Here's big man Harrison!!!!
My very special Logan!!!
I sat next to Kailey since Granddad was a no show!!!
Since Mike is a SUPER DAD, he took all four kids on an errand to Lowe's and then home for naps!
All by himself, folks!!! He is AMAZING!!!!
That gave Amber and me some mother/daughter time!!
We did a little afternoon shopping!
THIS was my haul from Central Market!!!
A Texas wine from Becker Vineyards, flavored water, breakfast snacks and BACON potato chips!!!
Central Market was featuring bacon EVERYTHING!!!
It was a BACON FEST!!!!
They even had a big poster of.....
We hit up Bath and Body Works!!!
I scored big with candles and a CAN of goodies!!!!
Thank you, Amber, for the 20% OFF coupon on your phone!!
Ross for Less was next!!!
More candles - can you EVER have TOO many??? No, I didn't think so!!!
Wine glasses that Louis Dean can't break for $2.99!!!
That wrap feels like a million dollars - and it was less than $20!
I came home in time to be a stone mason's helper to Louis Dean!!
He is doing an amazing job on this patio!!
I used a wire brush to clean off the stones - which are CUT ROCK!
My ex husband was - and is - a stone mason and I have an abundance of natural rock around this place - all used in landscaping, a fireplace, privacy fences and veneer on the front of the house.
I do know how to handle a wire brush!!!
THIS recipe was on Facebook today - posted by The Noble Pig!!
I'm thinking this will be the perfect cake to take when we go down to the ranch later this month!
It has been a GREAT weekend!!!
Now I am off to watch the last episode of Downton Abbey!!!
