Weekend Recap (3/26-28/10)

It has been awhile since I have done a Weekend Recap post.. My weekends have been just as busy as ever but so have my weeks so I never find the time to blog about them.. This morning I have a few minutes so I thought why not.
Friday March 26, 2010
Wasn't anything major going on Friday.. DH worked weird hours for overtime So he woke up at 3pm and left for work at 3:30pm so I didn't see him again until he got home at 2am and passed out. As for me and the kids.. After school Princess went over to my grandparents house since they have been complaining she never spends time over there anymore. While she was there I packed up the other 3 kids, feed them dinner and drove them out to my parents house where they were spending the night since Princess had a J.O. Volleyball tournament in the morning.

I got back into town around 7pm picked up Princess and her friend CC.(who was spending the night with us on Friday) We hit the walmart before heading home got some junk to munch and then went home. They played on the computer while I showered and got ready for a movie night in. Then we bought out all the junk food and started New Moon.. It was like a old fashion slumber party.. LOL just me and the girls.. It was fun.. until some 16 year old high school boy crashed the party.. Then I jumped back into mom mode and was thinking WHAT ON EARTH is this Sophomore in High School stopping by to visit with my 14 year old 8th grade daughter... but was just happy he was now able to drive a car and wanted to show off a bit... OH MY GOODNESS DRIVE A CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so not ready for my baby girl to be growing up..~sigh~ He wanted to meet me also so he did, he seems like a really nice kid.. but I still had to tell him NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (wanted to yell ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!!) when he asked me at 10pm if he could take Princess out driving around till 11pm.. "I promise I'll have them(both Princess and CC)back by 11pm, I have to be home early tonight because I have to work in the morning so we will be back on time" UMMMMMM Maybe if she was 16 years.. but sorry kid not at 14.. and even at 16 years old I don't think I'm going to be feeling way to comfy with teenagers who are new at driving driving my children around.. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not ready for this growing up stuff... Anyways.. the kid hung out here a bit and then had to leave.. we finished up the movie and went to bed... early day in the morning..
Saturday March 27, 2010

we got up at 6am and left the house a bit after 7am took CC home,then DH, Princess and I headed off about an hour away to go to Princess volleyball tournament... ONLY when we got there at 8am none of her team was there... and all the teams that were there looked so little.. turns out that we had the wrong day.. all her tournament so far has been on Saturdays WELL not this one.. it was a Sunday tournament OOPES!!!!! the 12U teams were playing on Saturday
So I drove home called my mom to let her know I could come and get the kids. There was an Easter egg hunt at 10am in my moms town which she planned to take them too.. I told mom I was going to rush and try to get there to watch also.. She didn't hear the word TRY in there so she got it in her head I would be there in time to go with them.. I didn't make it I didn't get to my moms house till 10am I thought she would have the kids at the park ready to go.. but she wasn't watching the time and was planning on just jumping into my van when I got there and riding with me to the park.. Needless to say we rushed to the park but it was already ending when we got there at 10:04am (short Easter egg hunt that started right on time) ~sigh~ I had two sad children.. mom made up for it by giving them some of the Easter candy she had planned to give them on Easter that helped.. After spending some time at my parents.. I ended up leaving with only my two oldest, the two youngest was going to stay the night again.
after leaving there.. Mr Man, Princess and I went shopping(DH was tired from only getting 3 hours of sleep the night before so he was pretty much gone till around 5pm) got Princess two tops for spring/summer, Mr Man got two tops and a pair of dress pants he needed for Easter. then we ate lunch and headed home. Here is Princess modleing one of her new tops.

Around 4pm I passed out for about an hour when DH woke me up he had wanted to go pick up a few things so out we went again.. ONLY this time Princess stayed home waiting for her friend MM to pick her up to take her to a youth group outing, where she would be from 6:30pm till 9pm There was going to be a concert(some young band that won some sort of contest I don't know) and also games and such so it was going to be a fun evening for the teens.. Here is a picture Princess took with her cell of Her and MM with a few of the band members.
While she did that, DH, Mr Man and I went out to buy the tile for my kitchen floor.. I picked what I wanted out a while ago but was just waiting for the money and the time to go out and get it.. ONLY when we got there Saturday night.. the title was on SALE!!!! this is a good thing.. the Bad thing was they were all out of the tile I wanted in the shade I wanted.. They had it darker and lighter but not the tone I wanted :-( I was a little bummed.. But the sales guy gave me a rain check on it, he said he would be getting more in but didn't know when.. but my rain check is good till the 4th of July so they should have it by then.. But this means no new kitchen floor over spring break.. but I'll be saving a good chunk of money on it now :-)
That was pretty much how I spent my Saturday beside coming home showing and going to bed due to the fact that we had to start Sunday just as early since we messed up the volleyball thing.

Sunday March 28,2010
DH and the kids didn't go to the tournament since it was a Sunday.. Just Princess and I went.. I left the house at 7am went and picked up Princess and her friend SF who she spent the night with(also one of the v-ball teammates) and we took off once again to the tournament.. were we spent 10 hours.. Princess's team is a 14U team but they were playing up a year in a 15U tournament all the teams there were a year older then there team.. Yet we walked away winning it all taking 1st in gold.. way to go team.
In others new on Sunday DH, Mr Man, Mr man's friend JW and JW's dad and little brother all went out Sunday evening to watch a WWE wresteling thing.. they all enjoyed that .
More Sunday news.. in Awana's that evening it was inside out/upside down night so the kids got to dress all crazy like.. fun fun.. it was also awards night and they all got there badges and pins and such.. BUT Sweet Pea won clubber of the month again... Way to go Sweet Pea..
We got home Sunday night and I was ready to crash.. got the kids to bed and that was all I had in me to do..
That was my weekend.. hope you all had a good weekend also.

From Gods Word Friday #9(3/26/10)

Matthew 5:43-48
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Then Sings My Soul Sunday #4

Today in Church we were studying John 4 again, we have been there a few but, today while reading it this song popped into my head and got stuck there.

Fill My Cup, Lord
Words and Music by Richard Blanshard

Like the woman at the well I was seeking
For things that could not satisfy:
And then I heard my Savior speaking:
"Draw from my well that never shall run dry".

Fill my cup Lord,
I lift it up, Lord!
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!
There are millions in this world who are craving
The pleasures earthly things afford;
But none can match the wondrous treasure
That I find in Jesus Christ my Lord.

Fill my cup Lord,
I lift it up, Lord!
Come and quench this thirsting of my soul;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more
Fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole!

John 4:1-14
1 When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

From Gods Word Friday #7(3/12/10)

Paslms119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
Paslms119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
Paslms119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.
Paslms119:92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
Paslms119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
Paslms119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Then Sings My Soul Sunday #3

While doing my Bible Study Saturday night I read Ps. 139:23 &24

After reading it the song by James Orr written back in 1936 kept running though my head... I love this song.. So It is going to be the song for Then Sings My Soul Sunday this week..

Search me O God.

Search me, O God, and know my heart today,
Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray;
See if there be some wicked way in me;
Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free.

I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin;
Fulfill Thy word and make me pure within;
Fill me with fire, where once I burned with shame;
Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.

Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine;
Fill my poor heart with Thy great love divine;
Take all my will, my passion, self and pride;
I now surrender, Lord, in me abide.

O Holy Ghost, revival comes from Thee;
Send a revival, start the work in me;
Thy Word declares Thou wilt supply our need;
For blessings now, O Lord, I humbly plead.

John 14:1-6
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Thursday 13 (13 things from this week)

1) my kitchen floor is in need of new title.. so on Monday DH and I went out and started looking around to see what is out there and what I like. Think we will be laying a new kitchen floor, and fixing the back pouch roof with our income tax refund.
2) while out i got a little bit of fun sort of shopping done, well fun for me but it was stuff the kids and I needed.. Princess got a few new shirts and pants and a dress, Mr Man and Little man both got two shirts and they were matching.. I know I need help.. but I love when I can find a size 18 for Mr Man and a size 4/5 for Little Man and they match.. Love it.. and For sweet Pea she got a dress and two shirts.. finding cloths for that child is really a pain so I was happy she was willing to wear the stuff we found.
3) Tuesday was snack day for Little Man at preschool he wanted to take popcorn so that is what we did.. I stayed up Monday night filling 24 ziplock bags with popcorn..
4) Tuesday was also spring Picture day at the elementary school So before Mr Man and Sweet pea took off I snapped these pictures of them. 5) While loading the pictures I took into the computer, I found that Princess too has been playing with the camera her self.. here are a few pictures I found on the camera of her, which I didn't take.
LOL no Princess's name is not Shay.. this was a picture shout out she was giving to one of her friends.
6) raising a teenager can get a little tricky.. God has blessed me with a great Girl.. She makes raising her sort of easy.. She is a good student.. she doesn't get in any trouble.. and she is just a joy to be around.. but even the good ones still come with there teenage drama.. and there is drama going on at school and it leave me wondering if I even have a clue what I'm doing raising a teenager.. Thankfully.. God is in control and will guide me as a mother and help me each step of the way. Pray for me and Princess.
and in other Prayer request..
7)While growing up in the small town I did and going to the church I went to there was a family there who was like family to me.. There was an older couple there who I called Grandma and Grandpa C.. and there Son and his wife I called Mom and Dad(there daughter was my best friend) Our Pastor was married to this couples daughter(and there daughters were also my BFF's) and at one point in my teenage years two of this couples grandsons were sort of like my boyfriends but that is neither here or there.. the biggest relationship came from knowing them though my best friends and at church.. Grandma C. past away back in the summer of 1994 before I was even married. But Grandpa C. just past away this week, his funeral is going to be Saturday.. Please keep his family in your prayers..
8) And while we are making a prayer list.. another family I knew growing up and were friends with the children.. The mother who isn't really old early to mid 50's I would say.. ended up with some breathing problems and throwing up blood over this past weekend.. Ended up having the family all fly in and was put on life support. They put her into an induced comma and last I heard there was signs of improvement.. so we need to continue to pray for her and her recovery and her family.
9) I do not remember if I mentioned it or not here but I'm going to become an aunt again.. TO TWINS!!!!!, I found out this week that last week there was a little scare there wasn't alot of movement and they got worried so went in and they couldn't find twin A's(which is my nephew, twin B is my niece)heartbeat.. Thankfully after some moving around and looking for it, they found it.. I had that scare once while PG with Sweet Pea.. It was so so very scary not being able to find that heartbeat but the tears of joy that floods over you when they do find the heartbeat.. But sadly I also know what it is like when at the end they tell you we are sorry but there is no heartbeat and the baby didn't make it.. I love these two little babies with all my heart already.. and I pray that they continue to grow and be born completely healthy..
10) Bible Study.. Tonight I'm starting a new bible study I'll let you all know how that goes.. I'm looking forward to it..
11)This weekend Princess has her 3rd volleyball tournament of the year another bright and early weekend for me.. having to leave the house before 6am.. blah I don't do early mornings well.
12) Also this weekend Sweet Pea has her very 1st fastpitch softball game.. not a tournament just a scrimmage.. but it will be her travels team 1st time playing together(they have been practicing)and her very first time to play fastpitch.
13) Other stuff we are looking forward to for the weekend is Awana.. they are having all green day Sunday night.. the kids are trying to figure out there outfits.. Sweet Pea only has 20 more pages to finish up her book for the year and has been working really hard at learning all her verses she has it stuck in her mind that she wants to do all 20 of them this week.. I don't know if they will let her do that seeing how other kids will need to say there verses also.. but we will see.

Well there ya have it 13 things that have been going on or on my mind this week.
