Weeked Recap:

Cleaned house.
The kids all came for dinner.  We had hamburger pot pie.  Dad came down and ate with us.  It's a good time as all the kids get to see him.  Life gets so busy, the kids don't always have the time to stop by to see him.
Cash was happy he got to drive his truck.  Not sure how he's going to feel about sharing when Iva gets big enough to drive.  April went through some of her old clothes and found a few for the kids to wear.  Cash loved her old pre-school shirt.

I went over to babysit the kids.  Capital Region was having a tribute to Laverne for her 45 years of service as an RN.  It was a bittersweet time for the kids.
The kids were very good.  We had chocolate chip pancakes for supper.

I am grateful for the opportunity to watch these precious kids.

Weekend Update:

April and the kids went to see Pa Great and then came and spent the day.  Cash has fun feeding the cows with Pa.  Iva loves just playing.
For some stupid reason, I bought Cash some marbles.  He loves to get two pans and stir the marbles all together.  He then sets the table.  The marbles are our food.  The first time we did this, I just started to eat.  Cash said no, we need to pray first as he held out his little hands.  I was so proud of him.

Dwayne and I went to Vienna to buy groceries to Dad.  Dad is always happy to have company.
I spent the day working on tax paperwork.  (yuck!)
Chad had us down for barbecue chicken and some music.  He did a great job grilling the chicken.
Overall, a nice weekend.
I am grateful for family and times we spend together.

Visit with Cash and Iva:

The kids came over Sunday dinner.  Todd and Michelle didn't make it as Todd was on call for the bad roads.  We had a good time visiting.  Cash loves Uncle Chad and has him play in the basement with him.
This is the first time ever we had a problem with Cash going to bed.   He cried so hard.  I felt sorry for him.
We played a lot in the basement and different things around the house.  Of course, we had to have our tea party.  They enjoy that so much.

Uncle Chad came by and took Cash for a short ride in his truck.  Cash was very excited about that.
Overall we had a great day together.  I am so thankful for these visits.

Cash and Iva:

We met April at 42 Junction to pick up the kids.   April was going to take pictures of Lisa's new baby, Rosslin.
We stopped at the feed store to get feed.  Dwayne now has to take both kids in with him as Iva is ready to go as well as Cash.  Now off to the Quick Spot to get bug juice.

We then went to Vichy to get hay for the cows.  Fed the cows and then it was so nice out, Dwayne got the truck out for the kids to ride.  They had a good time playing outside.  April showed up a little after noon and we had a lunch of deli meat. Todd and Michelle stopped by to eat and visit.  Iva started calling Michelle Shelley and thought that was really funny.  Chad was working so he didn't stop by.  We had a good day.
I am grateful for these visits with my family.

Weekend Update:

Judy came by and picked me up to go visit our friend, Pat Workman Hale.  Pat was here a few days staying with her sister, Penny.  They had a Workman Family Reunion.  They had a good turnout.  We had a good time visiting with our childhood friends.  They were all there except Brad.  Pat is retiring in May of this year and then moving to a different country with a warmer climate.  I admire Pat's sense of adventure and courage.  Nancy Ragan showed up just before we left.  Good to see her.

We had Sunday dinner.  Todd and Michelle didn't come over due to him being called out because of the state of the roads.  We missed them.
April's babysitter was taking the day off on Monday for the state holiday so we kept the kids.  They play real well together.  Iva went to sleep pretty early.
When we got up, Dwayne was home.  The roads were too bad for him to get to work.  The kids loved having him at home.  We had a tea party.  Dwayne doesn't look too excited but he's actually stuck in TV.
I had a pleasant surprise visitors.   John and Sheila Allen stopped by.  John had a letter my Grandma Feeler had wrote to John's mom, Lillian after my grandpa passed away.  It was so nice to see Grandma's handwriting and message she wrote.  She also included my Grandpa's obituary card.  I shall cherish it.
I am grateful for family and friends.
