Weekend Highlights

Can I just say this was the highlight of our weekend...

The Vikings won! They beat out the Cowboys. It was quite the game for us proud Minnesota fans. One more game... then... do I dare say it? THE SUPERBOWL. What a fun time [especially because the men in my life are loving it SO much]!

We went over to Mark & Sherrill's [my in-laws]. It was sure fun! I got to see these cuties... haven't seen them since we left for our Honeymoon! I felt like they grew up so much in 2 weeks. Crazy! Aimee and Olivia Page. Steph's baby girls. Our nieces!

We had a blast! It is always fun to spend time with family. Some other news... My parents and sister got a NEW kitty. I had posted HERE about the loss of our family cat, Tobie. My parents decided to surprise Jonna (my sister) with a new, little brown kitty. They named her - Chica :) I will post pictures soon. I guess she is "spunky" and they claim that I will like her... even though I am terribly allergic to cats. Oh, goodness!

I also had the privilege to see my friend, Chana Johnston! She is the friend who got married in Jamaica and was the personal attendant at our wedding. She is darling and it was fun to see her for a short while and hear all about her wedding and married-life :) They left the next morning for Venezuela to study abroad for 3 months. Praying, Praying, Praying for them!!


No news on the home front. We thought the insurance guy was coming out today, but they have not given us a time frame. I am trying to got get TOO frustrated at the lack of eagerness to accommodate and help us get our house back to "normal". We did decide that we are learning how to be assertive and firm from this whole fiasco! What a good lesson to learn!! It's always so great to hear from you all... Have a wonderful week! :) :)

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm glad your boys were happy, even though mine were very sad. :( I watched the game with both my brother and my hubby, and it was just a sad day. We're big Cowboys fans, but we'll have to wait until next year.

Hope you make it to the Super Bowl!!

Um... sorry. No Super Bowl for you, the Saints are totally going to smash you.
