Adorable kids, plus Mouthwatering Mondays!

Happy Monday! Did everyone have a fun weekend? We were running crazy as usual! We spent Friday night with some friends at dinner. It was really hot but we got to eat outside and listen to the amazing singer, so it was really lovely!

The husbands were there too, but of course, they had to take the pictures so they couldn't be in them!

On Saturday we were in rare cleaning form because we had an open house on Sunday. I was out painting our windows at 9am! I know that this is not that early but I don't do ANYTHING that early on weekends--ever! Luckily my friend Rachel was able to come and actually paint them well, so I bailed out of that job and tackled as many other projects as possible. We literally worked until nearly 5pm and I was exhausted! Thank goodness we had a shrimp boil to go to that night so I didn't have to cook dinner! Our young marrieds group from church met at the Monk's home for a fantastic summer supper. I ate plate after plate--all work and no play makes me a hungry girl!

Um, how cute are these kids?? They were all so sweet and well behaved too!

Shrimp, 3 kinds of sausage, corn, and potatoes. I wasn't exactly eating heart healthy that day, but it was super delicious!

 The next morning we went to early church and came home to get the house in tip top shape for the open house. It really looked great if I do say so myself! I'll do a post later this week for my tips and advice! After the showing we went to visit new baby Mary Catherine Yother. I had so much fun snuggling with her I never took any pictures. Rest assured there will be plenty of pics of her in the future--she is gorgeous! We ended the evening at my parents' house for dinner. Again, it was so nice not to worry about dinner when we had been so busy throughout the weekend! We may have worked a lot but we were able to sneak in lots of fun as well!
