Sorry, I’m late, I know. It’s been a busy weekend.
Last night, Princess Monster sang with her honor choir on stage at the Baldknobbers in Branson. It was such a great experience, and we all had a great time. However, that meant we didn’t get home until really late, and earlier, we had a lot of prep.
The monsters gave me my gifts yesterday. Princess and Littlest Monster each picked out an outfit with Dad’s help, pink and orange respectively (their favorite colors). Middle Monster surprised me with her gift: makeup, the bare minerals kind at Wal-Mart. Of course, the best part of the gift in her opinion was putting that makeup on Mom before the show last night! And of course, I let her put some on too. Mom looked very spiffy for the show.
They each also colored cards and handmade things. Princess Monster made a poetry book; Middle Monster wrote me a really cute letter; and Littlest Monster drew a picture of me and her going to a coffee shop. Do they know me or what?
Today, we were at the in-laws. Sigh. Not my idea, but oh well. They wanted me to bring Settler’s Beans, but with not getting home until late last night, and it being Mother’s Day today, I just didn’t want to cook. We picked up chickens and a fruit plate at Wal-Mart; others brought KFC fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and cole slaw. The fruit was a big hit. I wanted chocolate dipping sauce, but couldn’t find any, so I settled on dark hot fudge. Ooooh, it was so good! I brought an extra container of strawberries, and then Aunt S donated more when we ate all of ours. Grandma also made homemade ice cream.
That Man and I came home around 4 PM to work on laundry, and Uncle T brought the monsters home around 6 PM. I also talked with Granny, my mom, and folded 3 loads of laundry so far. The only thing I haven’t done much of this weekend:
