My weekend

We had a very nice weekend. I feel like I relaxed and rested, yet I got lots done too! Friday night after work I headed straight to the high school to watch Grayson's last game. He is on the JV team. He did really well. He is number 3. I thought this picture turned out really cool! Everyone is moving and blurry and he is in focus, it reminds me of the movie Matrix.
Here's Grayson at the free throw line.....he didn't make it though :0( but that's okay! The JV team won almost all of their games! It was a great season. Grayson got asked to play up on the Varsity team several times, that was a real honor. Now track starts!

Here is a picture of Eric, his father Jim and his mother Alice watching the game. It was really fun. We won!!! 50-44! Go Dogs!!!! Saturday morning after I cleaned my house Hayden and I went to the grocery store. Eric went fishing and Grayson was working at the gas station.

As you can see, we buy a lot and it is quite a chore. I am so glad I had Hayden with me to help!

Did I say help??? It looks more like he is gooffing off to me!!! LOL! Actually, we had a fun time. I really appreciated all of his hard work! After we got the groceries we went to Walmart and Goodwill, then we rented the Pirates of the Caribbean 3 with Eric and ate yummy deli sandwhiches for dinner. Grayson went to his girlfriends to watch a movie over there. More and more often it is just Eric and I and Hayden in the evenings.

On Sunday morning we all went to church in the big city to listen to Wayne Corderio speak. Have any of you heard of Wayne? He talks on the radio. He has a big church in Hawaii and he is a wonderful speaker. He was so funny and the message was awesome! He is a wonderful man of God.

After church we had an hour to kill before heading to our next activity, so we went to the Nike store. It is kind of like a museum. They have a neat display of Bill Bowerman's possessions because he is the one who invented Nike shoes.

It is a very neat story. He was trying to figure out a new light weight track shoe and he experimented in his garage. He finally got the idea to try to pour the rubber in a waffle iron and the results changed the way of the shoe industry!

Later we went to a real artsy type of store and got yummy coffee!!! Of course I ordered a low fat skinny!

Mmmmmmm coffee!!!!

After that we went to my Aunt Josephine's 80th birthday party! Isn't she cute! She is a wonderful woman! She is my Dad's sister and I just love her.

She has lead a full and wonderful life and she is a godly woman. She is so active and has always been so quick to jump in and help. She is great at entertaining and a wonderful servant for the Lord. Her daughter, Karen, put together this wonderful display of photos from Jo's life. It was fun walking down memory lane.

I love this picture of her when she was young. Isn't she pretty! Look at her gorgeous hair!

Here is a picture of the whole family back in the early 70s. We were celebrating my grandparent's 50th anniversary. My Mom and Dad hosted the party in our back yard. You can see my parents on the right end of the second row from the bottom. I am sitting in front of my Daddy, I am the last one on the right of the first row. My sister Kathi, who has a blog, Feathering My Nest, is the 4th one from the right. She was at the party today too, but sadly, I didn't get a picture of her.....bummer!

Here is another picture from the same day, this is just my grandparents and all their 9 children! My Aunt Josephine is the blond in the middle and my father is on the far right. It has been great to grow up in this big, loving family! I feel so blessed. What is so wonderful is that all the kids love the Lord! I need to do a post on my Grandmother Ethel because she was a prayer warrior and a wonderful, Godly woman! All of her kids grew up and blessed her!

Josephine is a very excellent cook and semstress. She enters her projects and baked goods in the fair every year and has gotten many, many blue ribbons!

Above is a photo of my parents enjoying the party.

Above is a picture of Josephine with her daughter Karen.

And here is a picture of Eric and I. It was a lovely day! It was a great weekend. Right now I have sausage and sauerkraut on the stove and cowboy potatoes in the oven. Hayden and I are going to play Scribbage and we will all probably watch a movie. Then we start a new week!

Have a great week!

Sharon what a lovely family! Every one of them! The only relatives I have are my Mom and Aunt ( my Grandmothers sister) and of course my Husband and children. It must be wonderful to have other Godly women in your family, I am sure it makes it easier to turn to one of them, it just all looks so wonderful. And your weekends look so full of good times! Thanks for being a great blogging woman!

Looks like you had a fab weekend. I remember when my youngest would go grocery shopping with me. It was usually so he could pick all the menu items and treats he wanted. :)

He was putting an offer on a house this weekend. We are holding our breath.
