There is a movie called waiting to exhale and I haven't seen it, nor do I even know what it is about but that is definitely how I have been feeling. I think it has Whitney Houston in it so I really have no desire to even see it. Her genre of music with all that high pitched squealing just doesn't do it for me. Or maybe thats Mariah Carey. I don't know nor do I care enough to figure it out. Sorry Whitney if its not you who does all that pig squealing.
Anyway, on to the week.
Sam had a birthday party. I only let me kids have friend parties for certain ages. 1 (more for me), 5, 8, 12, 16............and I haven't really thought beyond that. So this was his year. I had the party on the same day that Dave arrived home from China. His mom picked him up and he arrived toward the end of the party. Sam is a lover of all people....male & female so his party included both kinds, therefore lots of little bodies since he didn't want to leave anyone out.
Ash, Parker, Finlay, Jocelyn, Kylee, and Future Mrs. Samuel Hendrickson (Atti)
It is hard to fit photos in when you run a party solo
hmmmm I think Ellas party had a similar issue
Owning your own business has its price
Dad works a lot
Can you guess what his happy face sees in this package?
That next night was my family Adult Christmas Party at my house
Ashley is a clapping cheering sort of girl so Amy and I had a good time clapping and cheering when everyone opened presents because this is definitely not something my family does.
The rest of them kept looking embarrassed for us.
Sarah had the funny moment of the night when she opened a gift from my mom and rudely said "Is this some kind of joke". It was a lid to the standard size cookie sheets we all have and she thought it was missing something. She didn't realize how she said it but Amy didn't let her forget by saying it about everything the rest of the night. It was really funny!
We play the "white elephant" game except we play it w/a $10 gift since we are all brats and don't want someone elses crap. This buddha is my contribution. I had to get it when I saw it because although we have always been LDS my mom used to have a little white buddha in the corner of our living room growing up. None of us have ever thought to ask Why? I might call her right now to get to the bottom of it. Little did I realize a few of my sisters actually wanted this guy. We had a great time and there weren't many pics because I wanted to have fun rather than take pictures of the fun
Ella and Logan had their sing a long Tuesday at School
The Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner
w/an italian soda.
Can I just say that when a man that is not my husband speaks out in the night "is anyone out there" it kind of scares the crap out of me until I realize it is Tim Allens voice. That little creature works all by itself. I am now rethinking about if Dave was right in saying I should feel bad getting rid of all the toys. Are they really alive?
Sam and Ella's for their artistic talents and Logans for the good laughs it brings me.
