Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!

This weekend was incredibly busy when it was supposed to be a lazy one. Friday night was our "running around" night. Dinner and a movie, The Lightning Thief. This was a really good movie but my daughter was not happy because she kept saying, "They got it totally wrong!! They go it totally wrong." Apparently the book was quite different.  

One of the trailers was for Karate Kid with Jackie Chan. I can't wait to see this! Have a look....
 

Saturday and Sunday we were just going to get stuff around the house done and, well, be lazy for once. That didn't happen because I wanted to go looking for a new lens for my camera. Who knew they were that difficult to find. Ended up driving all the way to Madison and deciding on a different lens, which, as it turns out, is a much better lens and I even got a mini lesson on it! Woo Hoo! 

Sunday I worked on my pinwheel blocks for a quilt along. This is definitely going to be  a fun quilt to make and I can't wait to see how it comes along!

Today was full of a few surprises. 

I picked up my daughter from school today and she said she had something for me.  I said, "I'm scared". She giggled and then showed me what she had! A turtle pen!!! I saw this silly little pen the last time she had conferences but they were out of them so I didn't get one.  :(  Conferences came around again and her friend was having hers last week (as they run them for two weeks) so she gave her friend the money and asked her to buy one. Now, I had no idea she was doing this so when she told me what she did, I was taken aback by her thoughtfulness. She's a keeper! We both had fun playing with the popping out eyes...hee hee!

I know..this is a long post, but it's been a few days. Just two more things, I promise :)

The second surprise I got today came in the mail. I had no idea it was coming and had no idea what it could be. It was from my dad and his wife. Bewildered, I tore off the wrapping. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw what it was. Apparently the last time I was there, I complained about how often the remote got lost...LOL.  Yes, that is MY hand you see in the photo. :)

Last but not least is a photo I have to share of Bug. We had spaghetti for dinner tonight and as I was eating I looked over at him and grinned. I proceeded to go and get my camera and started taking pictures. Now, he thought I was taking pictures of his messy face. Then I showed him the pictures and asked him if he saw something that didn't belong. He started laughing. Do you see what I saw? LOL.

Neither of us knows how it got there, but we got a good laugh out of it. Thank goodness for messy boys :)

Much Love!!!
