The goings-on

Lots of celebrating going on here this weekend since there are two birthday girls in the house.

My BFF's daughter is turning 16 on Sunday and Joy is turning 14 on Monday!

Tonight, the girls will be going out to eat, shopping, reading at Barnes and Noble and drinking something yummy. Tomorrow for Joy's birthday, they will be going to breakfast and horseback riding! Saturday night we'll be having a family party with the birthday girls' favorite meal/s. So, the menu is going to be chicken enchiladas and smoked salmon among other things.

Our friends have found a house! I'll get to see it on Sunday after church.
Both of our boys have enjoyed all the meetings with the realtor. I imagine realtors must write off desserts fed to perspective buyers sons and their best buddies. -So far they've been to McDonalds, Panera and Applebees. LOL
-And they are up for more meetings to sign papers if need be. ; )
The house they are buying sounds wonderful. It is in a cute subdivision, has a loft, a community pool and surprisingly everyone's favorite part is

the view



grazing in the distance.

(have a I mentioned that they are from Texas? LOL That is explains it right?)

Tonight they moved into a furnished rental house. They will have fun staying there until they get the house because it is one ADORABLE little cottage with a pool. (some days are still really warm here, so they may even get to use it)

~And so ends their stay with us. It was a fun 3 to 4 weeks and we all got along fabulously well because we love each other. : )
-Otherwise 9 people in 1600 sq ft might've been hard, but it wasn't.

It was a special time that we will all remember fondly.
(especially for its lack of hot water) LOL
