The Weekend Update

This week’s feature film, for Friday night’s Family Movie night, was Yours, Mine & Ours. This is a remake of a 1968 movie that originally starred Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda. It was a good movie and for once I actually stayed awake for the whole thing.

Saturday morning I cleaned out the “dark room” as the girls call it. It’s actually the furnace room in the basement. I purged a lot of empty boxes and other stuff. It felt good. After lunch I took the girls outside to play in the gorgeous weather. I washed the van and the car while the girls played with some relatives who were visiting our neighbor. Megan really enjoyed playing with Kelley, an 8 year-old girl who was great at gymnastics. She was flipping all over our yard. Kelly took advantage of the nice weather by transplanting some flowers and Kade enjoyed just being outside. Later that night Kelly and I watched Walk the Line, the story of Johnny Cash’s life. I was not that impressed and wished I would have fallen asleep instead of keeping myself up to watch.

Sunday morning we attended church where Kelly ran the whole show in primary. Besides doing her normal assignments she also taught the kids music. She was a one-woman show. After church we rested for a little while before taking dinner to my Grandma and Grandpa’s house. We took salad and a Papa Murphy’s pizza. We haven’t been to their house in quite a while and it was nice to visit with them. My Grandpa was especially thankful for us bringing the food as he thanked me a couple of times. Afterwards my Grandma told my Mom that she was tired just watching us chase Kaden around. He loved the fact that they had electronic equipment (tv, cable box, dvd player) right at his level.
