Our Week

* Don't know if you can tell (you should be able to click on the pic and enlarge it) but Emma was Mary and had a baby stuck up under her dress. I believe the stable was under the trampoline. "and it came to pass...that she should be delivered." =) *

We had our last Sunday school in the morning. Next week we start the morning service at 9am because of the heat. We had lunch at the Sauvageot's and came home around 4. We headed back to church at 6:15 to get the girls in their costumes for the Sunday school program. I posted pics earlier this week.

We spent a lot of the day at the school printing off and folding and stapling the 100 Church Directories.
Daddy went grocery shopping with us. And to the post office too.

We had the Sauvageot's over for morning tea. I wanted to have them over but am still figuring out groceries on a budget and figured feeding them morning tea was easier and cheaper than dinner. =) Then I made and decorated a cake (and it looked so stupid) and took it to the Young Adult's Christmas/end of year/goodbye activity. We came home before it was done though because we took the girls and they needed sleep because Wed. was going to be a big day! And I was right!

Ben's 8th birthday party started at 10. It ended after 12 sometime. Jennie did an excellent job putting together a western cowboy themed party with only a day's notice as the place she had planned to have the party closed suddenly. Jennie and I went out to lunch with Steve and Josh while Trevor watched my girls. Then I brought the girls home for naps then we headed back to the Sauvageot's for Ben's family birthday dinner. And Bible study was at their house too.

We (Jennie, Ginger, Susan and I) decided to try out a water aerobics class that started at 10:30. We were only 10 minutes late. =) I dropped the girls off to the school to hang out with Josh for an hour or so. Pastor Samuel came by for a meeting and felt bad so took them home to his house to play with Isabelle. Susan and I went shopping for a few minutes at Target and then picked the girls up. We're home now and the girls are resting. The agenda for the rest of the day is clean the house and go to bed early.

The plan is to meet the Sauvageot's at McDonald's in Maryborough at 6:30 am. Every year we take a big shopping day, normally to Bundaberg. This year we decided to hit the big shopping mall in the Sunshine Coast--about 2.5 hours away. We'll shop all day and then come home EXHAUSTED!!

There is a work day at Pastor Samuel's house. It starts at 9:00 I think. Better check the bulletin. After several hours of working in the sun I think we'll come home for naps in the air conditioning. =)
