I woke up early and was unable to go back to sleep. It may have been that I was a little bit excited about today. The Oldest Princess text me not long after I woke up to tell me that she was on her way. Woo Hoo!
I got up, got ready for the day and then did a few things around the house. My Prince came home from his Saturday morning Bible study, and The Young Prince left to take his "lady friend" as the Youngest Princess calls her out to breakfast.
The Oldest Princess finally arrived, and we were waiting on the porch to greet her when she did. We were very excited to see her.
We talked and caught up for a little while. The Youngest Princess was like a barnacle on the Oldest Princess for a while. The Oldest Princess got ready to go out to lunch with some of her friends.
The Young Prince, and our friends Mr. M and Mrs. L, and their daughter M all came to spend the day. We are so glad that they were finally able to come for a visit. We met them, and just fell in love with them. Now they are no longer friends, but family. Grammy and Poppy joined us. We had a sweet time of fellowshipping, eating, and watching some football. The Young Prince and his friend and the Youngest Princess all went out to take some pictures. They got some really cute ones. They came in and we played some Dutch Blitz. The Oldest Princess got home from her lunch out with friends, and visited with us some. Then she left to go pick up a shelf that another one of our friends made for her. It is pretty fancy. I know she is excited to get it back to school and try it out.
The Oldest Princess finally got to open her birthday presents.
We all got ready to go out to eat to celebrate the Oldest Princess's birthday with dinner at one of her favorite places.
We had a fun time watching our food be cooked by the hibachi grill chef, and then of course we had a great time eating it. We took a few pictures, if you know me, few and pictures are not terms that go together, so really, we took a lot of pictures. Then we headed back home.
The Oldest Princess went by to visit our Youth Pastor and his wife and baby. Our friends came back home with us and we showed them a few clips of the Young Prince in the video of the play he was in last spring. We visited for a little while longer, and then before we knew it, it was time to say goodnight to our friends. The Oldest Princess came home in time to visit for a few minutes before our friends had to leave.
The Youngest Princess is all clean and tucked into bed next to me. My Prince is downstairs watching a few highlights from his football game that he had to miss the end of because of our dinner plans, and then he will finish studying for his sermon tomorrow. The Young Prince is tucked in as well, and the Oldest Princess is working on Math homework. I am fighting nodding off, because I am very tired, so I am going to wrap this up and snuggle with the Youngest Princess. Goodnight.
Until I blog again...
