This Past Week...

This past week I did a lot of stuff...this is some of what I did....

***Tuesday I woke up, did my chores, and then I sat around. Next I ate lunch and had quiet time. Then my Mom read to us out of the Bible. In the middle of it, the phone rang. Somebody was going to come over but mom would not tell us who it was. After that Chauntel wanted to have a tea party so we had one with the door closed. Suddenly there was a loud bang on the door. It was our cousins along with our Aunty Elva and Uncle David. They brought us a meal and shared it with us. It was a very good surprise. Then we talked them into letting Tara stay overnight with us. It was a lot of fun. On Wednesday we decided to play wedding dress-up.

We all put on white outfits.

Tara got to try on my Mom's wedding dress. It almost fit her. She was SOOO pretty, I thought!

We also jumped rope, played in our room, played at the fort with Blayne, and picked flowers to try to make crowns with. It didn't work very well. We hung it on Blayne's fort door for a decoration. He likes it. That night we went to the first night of Conventions at our church.

***We went to Conventions part of each of the other days. It was great fun. On Friday we had a babysitter since Mom had to work in the kitchen. It was Aimee...and she is so much fun! After Mom got home, we played outside on scooters, bikes, and played tag.

***Today we made a meal for Janine. She had a baby a couple weeks ago and named him Nolan William. In the afternoon Mom took it over there and I stayed home with Garret. While they were gone, we made brownies. I also called my Dad and asked him to pick up ice cream to go with the brownies as a surprise to my family. After supper, I got the vanilla ice cream from the garage freezer where my Dad had put it. Everyone, even my Mom, was so surprised. Mom said that I'm always full of surprises:) ~Alexa
