We've had a fun day! Beth and I went grocery shopping together this morning. We stopped and looked at magazines, bought marshmallow peeps, and looked through the clearance deals . . . then we bought the real food.
This afternoon, Beth's friend Carmen came over. Andrew was playing games on the X-Box with Beth when Carmen arrived, so the girls decided to play against Andrew. They won. This did not set well with Andrew. He's good-natured, so he didn't get angry, but he had to play harder because "I can't let two girls beat me!" LOL Around 4:30 he and I went to pick up his friend Ryan, which meant the X-box went upstairs and the girls were watching Pride and Prejudice. I made pizza while all this action was going on (I did have to stop a few times and see what was going on with the movie), and two other girls arrived at 6:00. So we had 6 teenagers and 1 Mama in the house, and can you believe it was sane in here?!! All the kids that came over are well-behaved kiddos, and I enjoy having them around. Ryan had to leave for a basketball game pretty early, but the girls stayed till the movie was over, a little past 9:00. I took all three to one house, where Carmen's mom came to pick her up. The other two are sisters.
I didn't get to watch the entire movie, but what I saw was so fun! The mom who owns the movie allowed us to keep it so I can watch it tomorrow, since I won't have much to do with Wes gone for the day. So I'm watching the whole thing tomorrow . . . just maybe in shifts. It gets pretty long watching it all at once!
One funny thing happened today . . . we heard a little knock at the door this afternoon. Andrew went to answer it, but when he opened the door, no one was there. There's a little playground across from our townhouse, and there were two little boys playing out there. Andrew heard one of them giggling and saying, "They opened the door!" LOL Well, Andrew was once a silly little boy, so he knew their tricks and had one of his own. He waited at the door, watching through the peephole for them to come back - he knew they'd be back - and when they got up on the porch, just as they started to knock . . . he swung open the door as fast as he could! You should have heard the screams!!!! It was priceless! LOL I had forgotten already what was going on, so when I heard that shriek, I came halfway off the couch before I realized what it was. It was one of those rare moments when all the details just come together, you know?! ;) So that was our burst of excitement today.
