We had a good weekend around here!

Friday evening we had our usual pizza.  I didn’t make it as planned.  I was just too tired for it!  We had a couple of our neighbor friends over for a throw together firefly party, a great idea I read about in Family Fun magazine!  It wasn’t anything spectacular, but it was a good kick-off for our firefly studies!  I will post more about it in my “Firefly Unit Study” post.  Anyway, during that visit with our neighbors, a storm blew in and our electric went out!  So it ended up to be quite an eventful evening!  We finished our visit by candlelight!

Saturday morning I got up and went to some garage sales.  I so love shopping that way!  The cheapest thing I bought cost me 5 cents.  It was this brand new Usborne art book!!

We did some work around the house.  That afternoon Chad went to get a load of mulch.  We finally did it now that it is the middle of June!  But it looks so much better.  This just about completed my pond area.  I still have to get one more stepping stone!

We did make a cute stepping stone with the boys this weekend from a kit a friend gave to us.  It’s so precious!

The rest of Saturday was spent at home.  Loved it.

Sunday we celebrated Father’s day.  We have been blessed 3 terrific Dads.  And my boys have one fine dad, too!  They were so excited for the day to finally arrive.  We bought Chad a plastic tote thing to hold his Firefly airplane goods when he takes it places.  We filled it with all of Chad’s favorite treats.  He loved it all.  I am so very thankful to have him as Daddy of my boys.
Sunday was an exciting day for our church, too!  Our new pastor and his family are here!  We had a welcome breakfast during the Sunday school hour.  They are excited to be here and we are all ready to move forward!

Sunday evening we had some friends from church over for a Father’s Day dinner…steak, mashed potatoes, corn, cole slaw, fruit, rolls and two desserts!  I think they liked it just a tad. :)

I didn’t get any pictures yesterday.  So I am determined to get a good one this week of Chad and his boys.
