Friday is our quiet day. We actually have no plans other than to do nothing. Saturday Marian is coming again! We have it worked out so that she has to come every few weekends or so. Thanks Mar. : ) Saturday evening we have Mass followed by a cookout and a movie night. That is if we can decide on a movie before midnight. The struggle is real, my friends. Ask Marian.
Sunday we are celebrating our sweet graduate, Peyton Rose! We are hosting a special dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant complete with a delicious, specially made, chocolate and peanut butter cake from an awesome bakery nearby. Our friend Father Ross is celebrating the seventh anniversary of his Ordination, so we are having a special cake made for him too. : ) I am so excited to celebrate my sweet girl and all her accomplishments with family and friends.
So that is what we have going on this weekend. But first, here is a quick look back at the past week in our country home...
Peyton made these cupcakes for the parish block party last weekend.
They turned out great, and I especially loved the way she used red for Pentecost. : )
We had several cozy days with awesome storm clouds...
And some with lots of beautiful, bright sun...
Which allowed for some early morning walks with all of my girls. : )
I came across this precious scene one day. And I was reminded how thankful I am to still have a little one in the house after all these years.
She makes my heart so happy.
We had a visitor in the backyard this week...
And we were able to get a quick picture of her before she raced back to her baby.
Peyton made these delicious no bake cookies for our Monday night Bachelorette watching party.
They are sooo good! One change she made was to omit the butter for the drizzle, and we got nowhere near the amount of cookies it said, but that was probably a good thing!
After those, I had a few of these last week.
And they were almost as good. : )
Have a wonderful weekend with your people, my friends!
Thanks for visiting!
Oh! A lot of you asked about the Berry Dish Soap by Dawn I had in my last post.
Funny story! We were at my sister Margie's husband's parent's house, and I was helping in the kitchen. I saw his mom had that dish soap and I got so excited about it, she came over, opened her cupboard, and gave me one! I tried to tell her no...but she insisted!!! So then, Margie's husband Chris brought me a three pack and said he never saw anyone get so excited over dish soap! Anyway...he found it at Sam's Club! : )
