i think i'm paranoid, and complicated

this pic below is of my niece that is in ICU. this was taken about a year and a half ago. isn't she sweet. please continue to keep her and her family in your prayers.




below are pics of how the we spent the weekend.


in case you don't recognize what is happening in the above pic i took a closeup.
yep, that's my hubby and the hubby of pattylicious starting a bbq. i know that these two are both intelligent, but i had no idea about just putting the whole bag of charcoal in the pit in the bag. really no clue. the men folk were in the process of roasting sausages for the super bowl get together.



inside as you can see the children were really enjoying the movie they were watching. isn't he sweet he fell asleep in his brother's lap with his little legs crossed.



ah, pizza night fun. we bought the game ROCK BAND. the children had fun lounging on the empty box. most of you know that i don't care for video games, which has nothing to do with my terrible hand eye coordination, really. we had so much fun, but at about 2 a.m. i fell asleep while trying to sing. i was a very tired girl. pattylicious was sleeping on the couch as well. the guys showed no sign of stopping. finch helped me get to the couch in the living room where i attempted to sleep. only interrupted by shouts of "crap that song is hard." around 4:30 a.m. or so, the hubby laid down on the floor next to the couch and went to sleep. bright and early the wee ones awakened. we put them to bed at their normal bedtimes, and they were fully rested and looking forward to a wonderful saturday. pattylicious in her infinitely kind and wonderful way provided strong coffee and donuts for breakfast as the boys broke out the game again. we had a great weekend. monkey spent the weekend in OKC with my mom, aunt sue, uncle roy and his fam. there is talk about going to the zoo this spring. during our great weekend our sweet niece was never far from our thoughts. please continue to pray for her wellbeing both physical and emotional. thanks.

She is super cute with that red hair and all her antics. She is much too young to have so much trouble with life already!
Sounds like you had an awesome weekend. Boys and fire...Always a scary situation. But don't even try to give any advice on BBQing. They know it all! :)
