This is what we did on Saturday! The boys had a Cub Scout parking lot clean-up at our church in the morning and then we went to our friend's house for some brunch and gingerbread house decorating.
Jeremy and Kenny were trying to decide if they should eat the candy or decorate with it. Decisions, decisions! That's Kenny's mom, Jen's hand there on the left. She puts Martha Stewart to shame. She had a gingerbread house for each one of the kids and she's the fun mom who doesn't care how much icing lands on the floor. I could take some lessons from her!
After the kids, young and old, were adequately sugared up, they hopped on the quads. The big kid in the middle is Kevin. Jeremy is on the left and John is on the right. To say that they had fun is an understatement! It was just plain raw out on Saturday and they rode those quads for over two hours. Kevin
made asked me to take a ride with him on the big quad; I reluctantly agreed. Call me crazy but, riding a four wheeler through the woods in 30 degree weather is not my idea of a good time. But, to please my husband, I went. He promised to go slow and just to make sure he did, I took Joe as protection. I am now referring to the adventure as the Ride O' Death. I did.not.have.fun. Joe, on the other hand, loved it.
Here he is, sitting on the motorcycle. And no, we did not let him ride it alone.
I'm sure you can probably guess by now that we have not heard anything about the job. To say that we are getting frustrated is to put it mildly. Kevin is ready to move down to N.C. anyway and get a job at Wal-Mart as the guy that puts the smiley face on your receipt. I wonder how much that job pays?
I appreciate all of the well wishes, they do help.
In the meantime, we are looking to the finish!
