Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.-- Anthony Brandt
To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. -- Barbara Bush
Saturday morning I rolled over to my parents in my PJ's to meet up with everyone for breakfast (mmm...homemade waffles - thanks mom!)...Josh took Aliyah fishing for a little bit while I helped mom clean up...Brittany and her brother Dallas came over and then Josh took Dallas fishing & mom, Brittany, Aliyah and I made a gingerbread house...who cares if it is almost April! I took pics with moms camera of that ordeal...we lost the chimney when it fell through the roof...so I'll have to post those later.
Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts. -- Author Unknown
At about 3pm I finally went home to get out of my PJ's and get ready to go to town...we all had a very late lunch together at IJ Cann's and then hit up Dairy Queen...I'm sure the people around us were wondering if we were *OK* as Dallas and Josh were betting Brittany $20 that she wouldn't lick the wall...what? I laughed hysterically watching Josh eat his sundae with a spoon that was probably 4inches long...his hands were covered in ice cream...I'm easily amused...
A happy family is but an earlier heaven.-- John Bowring
Sunday morning I met my BFF at the Leesburg outlets to do a little shopping...I bought a NEW PURSE, but I'm not convinced that it is the right one yet! I met my family at my cousins house in the afternoon & after I let everyone know how irritated I was that NO ONE called me *YET AGAIN* this weekend to tell me what time to be there (sorry for being a brat, but cell phones make communication A LOT easier - ya know? - I tend to be a little FIESTY when something rubs me the wrong way, but luckily my family knows how to deal with it and they understand that I just need to vent and then I'm over it...not everyone understands that about me though :))
At the end of the day, a loving family should find everything forgivable.-- Mark V. Olsen and Will Sheffer
We did the whole egg thing, ate lots of wonderful food, played kickball and football out front, and watched the RACE...way to go Denny *TEAM GIBBS* & I got kind of excited when Stewart passed JR on close to the last lap :) Sorry Randall & Debbie!
Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.-- Jane Howard
