We met her at Johnny Carinos and enjoyed our short visit. The kids were getting restless and we were finished so we decided to go talk outside. They were running all over the place and once I looked down and they were all three laying down on the dirty sidewalk, looking up at the sky! We had a nice visit and I am sure by the time we left, she was probably calling her husband telling him how wild the kids were!!!

Tuesday evening, I took Mom to the Derby Dinner Playhouse and we had dinner and watched the musical, "Sing Hallelujah!" It was a fun girls night out! (Thanks Jonathan for keeping the kids!)
Today the twins were total terrors and have demolished parts of the house! They started out by somehow getting our "trackless" shower door off the track! This was before I had showered and the door is stuck and I simply cannot budge it! (I had to take a bath and wash my hair in the sink. Not my favorite way of doing it, but it worked!) Then I discovered they had de-capitated one of my Boyd's Bear resins, and the list goes on and on today!
Mary Jane finished her radiation on Tuesday of this week! We are so happy she is done and that she did so well! She deserves a big vacation Chuck!!!
Our good friends, Darin and Amy Shearer just celebrated their #15th wedding anniversary yesterday and spent the evening in prayer meeting! (They have big plans for a romantic getaway in the winter months!) I thought I had a picture of them, but can't seem to find it!
Anyway, that is a brief look at what is going on in our lives this week. Pretty boring but a "post" nonetheless!!!
Now, the twins are screaming, it is time to get ready to leave and this is how I feel...

No matter how many pictures I tried of me, it would mostly come up that I looked like some male and more than once it said I looked like Bob Saget! Guess the glasses are similar! Most of the females it showed, weren't even close!
Now, I am off to get a complete makeover... See you later!
Jonathan was excited to see this. Apparently he is the world's highest paid soccer player. Maybe Parker will have to change sports!!!
Now it is time to write out the Thank You cards! (My favorite part...)

The Walden kids just wanted to say "Happy Grandparents Day" to the best Grandparents in the world!!! (They think so anyway!!!) Happy Grandparents day to Grandma and Grandpa Walden and Grandma and Grandpa Thompson from Parker, Peyton and Paige! We love you all very, very, very much! Thanks to both sets of Grandparents for babysitting us and playing with us! We love to come to both of your houses!!! Hope you have a nice Grandparents day and even get to take a nap!!! (Might be hard for Grandma and Paw Paw since we will be at their house all afternoon!!!)
Love you all bunches...

Last night at bedtime, Parker was saying his usual "night night" prayer and decided to change it a little! He said, "Now I lay me, down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. May angels watch me through the night, and wake me up, in the middle of the night..." Jonathan quickly replied, "Uhhhhh, scratch that!" I cracked up! Parker quickly corrected it to "in the morning light!"
I don't know about you, but when I was little, it had a different ending! More morbid... I like this version better! (Does this make his prayer a NIV?)

The only thing I did not enjoy was the log ride... Parker absolutely begged to ride it and he and Jonathan went and got in line! I had parked myself on a bench in the shade and the twins were actually being good and quiet! My cell phone rang and Jonathan said, "They said if the twins can stand alone, they can ride this ride too! Bring them on over!" So... I go over, empty out my valuables from the diaper bag, grab a kid on each hip and head for the line! It went fairly quickly and our party of 5 filled up our own boat! They made us actually sit the twins down on the bench and not on our laps. No seat belts, nothing... As soon as we hit a wall, water splashed in on us and they started screaming!!! We topped the hill and tried to keep them covered, but it was no use... we ALL got drowned! They really screamed. There was an elephant at the end as we were coasting in to dock and it "sprayed" us and completely finished soaking us! As we pulled in, I felt like a horrible mother, two kids screaming their heads off and an almost 5 year old jumping up and down and yelling "we got soaked!!!" Needless to say, that was our last ride of the day!!! I hope it didn't scar the twins for life...
We stopped at Frisch's Big Boy on the way home and filled our tummy's! When we pulled in our driveway at 10:30pm, all was quiet in the SUV!!! What a nice sound!!!
Here are some pics of our fun day! Hope they don't bore you! There are a couple of shots of the drowned rats in there somewhere...
