This week so far...

Something happens when elderly teenagers come home for the week. Their elderly teenage friends gather. When it happens on a Monday night, what do we do? We include them in on our Family Home Evening. They were forced to sing a primary song, listen to a Thanksgiving lesson and a poem complete with actions.
Of course, Family home evening wouldn't be complete without a game. Tom had them stare at a pizza pan in anticipation of a piece of candy being dropped.
The grabbing frenzy!

Wouldn't you know? Dad had a little trick up his sleeve. (Or pocket)
If you look close, the candy looks suspiciously like a broken egg!
*

Next comes the activity.

Aren't they cute?

In house news: the basement floor was poured yesterday.



Kenna and I had fun watching the process before I ran her to school.

The finished project!

And Finally.....



Don't the "fall" colors look pretty?
These bruises don't look nearly as bad as the ones on my fragile ego.

You are going to have a great weekend having Cameron home.

Your basement looks great!

What did you do to that foot?! I'm guessing a fall was involved. Hopefully it looks worse than it feels.

Have a great weekend with all your family together! Happy Thanksgiving!

I think I'm going to use that game sometime. Too funny! How's the foot doing? Hope it's okay.

SO I thought for sure, since I am commenting so late that we would now know what truly happened to your foot. And it does look very painful!

Catherine said...

I had to laugh about the egg! I hope to remember that game for a future family home evening when Lauren is older!!! Wow, your foot looks painful! Like everyone else has asked...what happened??
