Crew update

This weekend was a half decent weekend.  I had planned to take the kids to an international day hosted by GSU at Mill Creek in Statesboro on Saturday.  My head was hurting so bad that I opted not to go.  Mike had to work Saturday night, so he slept all morning.  I camped out on the couch most of the afternoon.  My house was in need of a good straightening, but most of it didn't happened.  The little ones did pick up their toys before bedtime. 
I was able to dull the headache enough to go to Grandma Jean's family's Thanksgiving supper Saturday night.  We had a wonderful time seeing some of my great aunts and uncles, and cousins.  Of course, Jonathan was taken as soon as we walked in the door good.  We didn't hold him again until we started to leave.  Emily and Rebekah were excited to see Aunt Ruth had her Christmas tree up and decorated.  They oohed and ahhed over the tree for probably 20 minutes.
Sunday was a nasty day, so we stayed inside all day.  I ventured out long enough to go to Uncle Bernie's to get a Sunday paper.  All I can say is brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!  It was raining and 51*.  Too messy for this girlie to stay out long.  We had visitors late Sunday afternoon.  Uncle Tracy, Aunt Lisa, and Matt Matt came over first.  JJ was so happy to see Matt Matt.  Luke didn't do his little sleeping thing this time when Aunt Lissa would talk to him.  And... he actually let her hold him.  Emi and Bekah were all over Uncle Tracy.  He got a little taste of what it would have been like if they would have had girls.  LOL  Mama and Sarah came over a little later.  I have been wanting veggie soup for a while now and Sunday was the perfect day for it.  I called and told Daddy to come over after they went to see Grandma Jean in the hospital.  I thought it would be later in the evening, so Lissa would have plenty of time to get baby kisses.  Mama and Sarah didn't go to the hospital and came over a little earlier than expected.  Andrew didn't mind b/c he enjoyed having Uncle Tracy help him torment his Aunt Sarah.  Tracy got a not so flattering pic of Sarah.  LOL  We really enjoyed having everyone over.  Of course, Lissa hit the road when the veggie soup was ready.  She just doesn't know what is good!  I did manage to get some rice crispy treats made before they got here just for Lissa. :o)
Mike is working some extra overtime this week.  We have made a goal to have the van and most of the house paid off in the next 12-18 months.  It will be so nice to have no debt.  Then we could start putting money up to build.  Mike wants 10-15 acres of land, but Papa and Grandma have said we can't move away... or at least the kids can't move away.  LOL 
Well, I have to get up from here and be productive.  Love y'all bunches!

Let's see... veggies (make that mushy veggies) or Rice Krispie treats? Oh yeah, I'll take the RK any day of the week (literally, EVERY DAY Charity)! :)
