Saturday will be quiet and cozy here. The girls and I will most likely relax and visit with my sister before getting ready for Mass. After church, the girls would like to go out for Chinese. Sounds good to me. Flynn loves lo mien! I think she could survive on that and strawberries... Saturday night will be a movie night, provided we can decide on a movie before we all fall asleep. See just how wild and crazy I am!
Sunday is the annual Rotary Auction here. Have you ever heard of this? The local businesses donate items to the Rotary Club, and then the local television station broadcasts an auction in which people can call in and place bids. If you place the highest bid, you will receive a callback, and then go downtown and pick up your item. All the proceeds go to the Rotary Club to be spent helping the community. It is really a big thing here. All the items and times are printed in the newspaper a day before so you can study it and see what you want. We have gotten many things over the years like toys, gift certificates for restaurants, blankets, and even a phone. Some people even have parties during the auction! I never go quite that far. OK, I may or may not highlight certain items I am interested in and plan a fun meal...but that's it! : ) I do think I will put some beef in the crockpot for barbecue sandwiches and have Peyton make a sweet treat or two.
Well, that is what we have planned for the weekend. I hope yours is fun, and warm, and cozy, whatever your plans may be!
Flynn played" boat "this week...so cute!
We woke up to this on Tuesday morning...Snow Day! Hooray!
That meant Flynn played her first ever game of this! And won, as Cinderella, of course. (And it was legit!)
My little helper Peyton helped me organize our books, movies, and a few games on this shelf in the family room. They all used to be in a cupboard. So much easier to get to, and looks pretty too. The bookcase was in the basement. Nothing like shopping in your own home!
All done! : )
