Family Fun Night and a Day of Rest

Last night, we attended the Family Fun Night at a local elementary school. It's a fundraiser for the PTA. The theme was Hawaiian Luau.

The girls got all dressed up and were ready for some fun. Parents at this school get all kinds of fun things to do like bingo, mini-putt and dancing to keep everyone busy. I take pictures to help the school with the year book.

There was also a silent auction. The students put together a really cool assortment themed baskets. Brenda was bidding on a few of them and came up with the winning bid on a basket of gardening supplies. I think we might just plant a garden in the spring!

It was a fairly late evening, since we didn't get home until almost 9, but that didn't stop the girls from gettng up earlier than they do during the week. Why is it, that no matter what's going on, I can't get the girls out of bed during the week, but on Saturday and Sunday, they are up at the crack of dawn?

Today was a pretty lazy day. I actually took a nap! It was interupted when Ashlea asked me if I was was the best 20 minutes I've had in a long time! Does anyone else's kids just have a 6th sense about when you are sleeping? Brenda can take naps for hours and the girls will leave her alone...I just don't get it.

Tomorrow, we will be join K, G, Kt and S for Grandma's birthday party. I'll have tons of pictures for that. We are also planning on getting to Red Wing in the morning. Grandpa J is going to take me and the girls up to the family hunting grounds for some fall picture taking. That's sure to hit my photo blog!

Halloween is just a couple of days a way! It's my favorite holiday of the year. Next weekend, we will be hosting a Halloween/Poker Party. I'm really excited for that. Costumes, poker and good friends, should be awesome. Most of this week will be pretty busy getting ready for the party. Posts might not come as regularly as I hope....but we'll see.

The political season is heating up and the Supreme Court is in session. I can't wait!
