Sunday, February 16
It is not over yet ~ the reason I called this a marathon. 🙂
There was a lot of noise and fun and busyness when Cerwin, Diane, and I got home, as the Myers’ grandchildren were preparing for a party in our house on Sunday. Lydia and Mary Ellen were decorating cupcake’s for a baby shower (for Nathaniel & Abby) – that I learned was also going to be happening in our house the next day. 🙂
After getting beds and air mattresses ready for six extra people, I happily crawled into bed.
As you can imagine, Sunday morning was not the normal routine in our house – with six extra people – so Hannah and I decided that we would let everyone else get ready for Sunday school and out of the house, and we would just go to church.
Cerwin was not going to either service, as he had snow to plow in preparation for parking a lot of cars. It had snowed almost every day for the previous week.
Several minutes after everyone left, and Hannah and I were relaxing, Jere and Kristen and their little boys arrived. When they saw me, Jere said, “You are not supposed to be here, you are supposed to be at church.”
I thought, “That is where you are supposed to be too.” 🙂
I quickly replied, “Okay, we are out of here.” The little boys (Ian, Jared, and Jesse) just stood around smiling and looking a bit naughty until we left. Josh and Jana came later to also help prepare for lunch.
When we got home, our garage was beautifully decorated and set for lunch – and I learned that Jere did the snow removal for Cerwin.
I was told to stay out of the kitchen – but they did allow me there to take pictures.
…and there is more to come.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that I found my first clue (in our church mailbox) about what would be happening on Monday. Remember, I got a note in the mail on Friday, asking me to keep Monday open.
I had to unscramble this word to find out what it was. ISELDA. I concluded that it spelled LADIES. So I knew I would be doing something with ladies.
