The Weekend What

This past weekend was a good one. Although Sam was sick, and stayed home from Religious School, he did have enough energy to teach himself a little bit of piano :) I think we might need to sign him up for lessons in the near future.
Rachel went to her first school friend birthday party on Saturday afternoon. It was at Michael's and she made this beautiful painting, which I think might also be a picture holder. Rachel is currently using it to hold special items (aka crumpled pieces of paper).
On Saturday night the youth at our church held a coffeehouse fundraiser. Dave contributed a couple of songs to the event. It was really fun to see some of the people perform (think seniors doing hilarious comedy!). Plus there were desserts. YUM!
On Sunday as we were leaving for church we noticed some interesting snow formations. It was the snow melting in weird ways as it was also raining. In the middle of this picture, what with the leaves forming a face (of sorts) and the formation to the left of it looking like a hand, it kind of looks like someone is emerging from the ground. Am I the only one who sees this? Aren't you thankful for this insight into my brain?!

Even though we've hired someone to shovel our snow during the week (Best. Decision. Ever!), we had enough snow on Sunday (yes, the day started out with rain and ended with a bunch of snow) that we decided to have a Family Shoveling Time. I captured these pictures and the white spots are the snow continuing to fall.

And that was our weekend -- weird weather, yummy desserts, and exciting birthday parties.


  1. HAHAHA- I was skimming your pictures before I read any of the text and I TOTALLY saw the person emerging from your snow!! It really freaked me out, too!!!

    And I can't believe that snow-shoveling is like a JOB there!!! Hahahahaha!!! Georgia is missing out on a whole entire sector of the economy!! (I don't know, maybe we make up for being a pool maintenance person a legit job up there? Maybe that's our seasonal equivalent.)

  2. Sounds like a lovely weekend. I've been debating on whether or not I should do a late Weekend What myself....I think that I will. =)

  3. I saw the creepy snowman face too...yikes! :)

  4. Hope Sam is feeling better! I'm SO ready for the girls to learn piano! (The question is--will they learn from me? Ha!)

  5. Oh my, Rachel and Brody have another similarity. Brody is always making me these little art projects of his drawings/letter writing on bits and scraps of paper or glued together pieces of paper. I find them stuck to the refrigerator, on the craft wall upstairs, and lots of other places. And I totally see the weird melting snowman emerging from the ground. Creepy! Haha!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
