David and I had a busy couple of days last weekend, and I got behind on updating with the videos and pictures I wanted to share. So, it's only a few days later...
On Friday, our last official day of school, we had all of our students (minus the two graduated seniors) over for lunch, plus two of the parents. We ordered pizza from Dominos ( we ordered 10 thinking they'd eat a lot, and I'm still eating left overs, plus we have a whole pizza left in the refrigerator), and had fruit, veggies and brownies. We also filled up a pinata from Fiesta Foods and the kids got to take some whacks at it. They had never done a pinata before, and loved it! I had a good video of my kindergarten girls swinging at the pinata, but I couldn't get it to load. :( I'll keep trying and maybe soon I can post it.
Our good friends, Kayla and Aaron, were here Friday night until Saturday evening, with their little border collie, Benjamin Franklin. Once our dogs got acquainted with one another, they had a good time playing together. Benny is a year old and has a lot more energy than Maverick, the old-man 2-year old, but they ran and jumped around the yard a lot. We were even able to take them down to the nature trails at McNary Dam and let them swim in this stream area that was about 3 or 4 feet deep. It was a great visit with friends that we don't see nearly often enough!
Saturday was also my first baby shower! Marci put it on at our friend Felicia's house (it's newly remodeled and beautiful!) at 4:00, and a bunch of my friends were able to come. It was really a great time spent with friends, and I was so thankful that everyone had come to show they were excited about little Micah. He sure is going to be a well-loved little boy! I got some great gifts too, including a monitor, the diaper bag that I wanted so badly, many baby toiletries, toys, and supplies, and some very cute little clothes! David and I are so blessed to have great friends and family, and we're so thankful for them! I forgot to get out my camera at the shower... very typical, but Barb got some pictures luckily. :)
Kara and I, with Kirsten in the background. Kara made the great diaper cake on the table with the food. It had 95 disposable diapers in it, and some fun bath toys. On the top were some cute little onesies, some baby bath products and some more toys! :)
With Marci and Felicia, and Radar the kitten... he wasn't a shower gift unfortunately, but he sure was a sweet little kitty!
This is a picture of me with my cake, it's ice cream cake! My favorite! I got a little sunburned at the river...
