We had a great weekend. It started Friday night when James and I decided that we MUST get some time alone. (If anyone knows a responsible teenager to babysit occasionally please let me know. We’ve decided we’ve got to get alone together more often!!) We took the kids to my mom’s house at 8:00 and went to a delicious restaurant, Countryside, that specializes in homestyle cooking. We had awesome soup and salad and country fried steak, served with mashed potatos and gravy, green beans with bacon for seasoning, along with hot rolls and real butter. I love soul food!
Saturday morning we did one of my favorite things. We went out and ate breakfast at IHOP!!!! Yummy, country griddle cake combo!
got milk? Anjelia enjoyed drinking half and half at IHOP!
After breakfast, James took me to see several beautiful homes that his company installed cabinets for. I FORGOT to take pictures. (I think I was stressed about Anjelia running around.) They also did most of the countertops. I like them better than the marble one I saw. I fell in love with one of the model homes. It was a California split floor plan named, Clinton. It was absolutely beautiful and perfect for my family. Too bad it cost $250,000! It’s fun to look!
We went back to mom’s to pick up Jessica, who spent the night there. There are so many fun things to take pictures of at mom’s. I wish I could remember how to do the slide show. I have a hard time retaining the information James teaches me.

Sunday morning we went to church and out to Janet and Richard’s (Mom and Dad D.) for lunch. After eating, Janet taught the girls how to make ice cream!
I’ll get this recipe and share it! Scrumptious
While the ice cream was chilling, I took A NAP!!!! Woohooo. I was sooo tired feeling. They took the kids outside to play while I slept on the couch. Thank you, I really needed that!
The only downer was while I was eating my ice cream outside a wasp crawled into the bottom back of my t-shirt and stung me twice! Those dang things hurt!
Thank you James for a great weekend. Thanks for recognizing that I really needed to get out!
