Valentine Couples Dinner

On Friday the 13th, David and I hosted a Valentine Couple's Dinner at our home. We had a very nice dinner of breaded boneless pork chops, bake potatoes, corn, broccoli, aisian salad, homemade rolls, two different kinds of strawberry cake, strawberry creme pie, chocolate chip cookie, vanilla ice cream, and pop and coffee.

We were asking different questions like how they met, how long they dated, how long they had been married, then we played a couple games, pass the hershery kiss, when the music stopped the couple who had the hershery kiss had to kiss and they were out of the game, the last one who was in had to kiss and got the hershery kiss.

Then we played like the NewlyWed game, but with approriate questions of course, the guys went out of the room, the women were asked questions, then the men came back in and we had to see how they answered, then the same with the women. David and I came in last. lol We will be married 29 years April 26th. The Dodds had to bring their kids, as they didn't have a babsitter. But it was ok, they stayed in my bedroom and played and listened to story CDs.

At the end we sat around and talked till about 10:30 p.m. After everyone lefted David and I cleaned up the house and got it all back in order.

My day with my grandchildren

On Thursday the 29th of Jan. I went down to Ohio to my daughters for the day. My son Brad was going down there to work on Melody and Mikes computers, so he asked me to go along, of course he knew I wouldn't mind at all. That I would love for an excuse to go down and visit my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren. I can't say it wasn't a nerve wracking trip because of the roads as it was. I was a nervous wreck by the time we got there. Anyways Gage was so excited to see his grandma. This grandma was excited to see him and Ali. lol I just hung out playing with the kids, and enjoying them, visiting with my daughter and son-in-law. We didnot leave to come home till that evening around 10 p.m. Once again, I was a nervous wreck coming home. The roads weren't real bad, but Brad says they weren't bad at all and they were. I am petrified of snow and icey roads. We made it home safely around 1:30 a.m. Here are some pictures that I took and videos . Hope you enjoy. I just love showing off my grandkids. :)

My day of scrapbooking

About two weeks ago, on a Thursday I went over to Linda Rapers home for an afternoon of scrapbooking. She has so much stuff, which I have a lot to, but she has so much more than I. I also took the two oldest of our pastors children, and their friends, Madison and Chapman Yancey who had spent the night with them. The Dodd kids like to scrapbook too. They were only there for about a hour, and was very upset when their dad came to pick them up and take them home. But they found out, they were going to ride their four wheelers, and play in the snow with the Yancey kids, so they were happy about that. So I spent the rest of the evening with Linda. It was a lot of fun. I love to scrapbook. I wish I had more time to do so. We try to get together everytime we can. Here are a few pictures from it.
