recap of the weekend

Okay, well, Saturday was lots of fun. We were planning to go to Amy and Vu's house for the bday celebration, but the dadgum rain never let up. Lots of people in house about the size of mine, during thunderstorm wouldn't be too bad. But then think of six children stuck in a house with lots of kitties to chase around and there could be problems. So, we all met at Dad's house instead. It was good to see my sisters. I miss them if we don't see each other for a whole week.


Julie's kiddos are really growing,too. I'm quite certain that Owen weighs more than Trevor (and maybe close to Ethan's weight!) and Scarlett is putting on some pounds, too.

We talked and played with the kids. Amy and Vu really had the kids cracking up!




The guys watched football (of course!). Amy made yummy yummy lasagnas, Julie did salad and I brought homemade bread. Apple pie for dessert with 8 candles for my dad (5 + 3).



We got home around the time the kids needed to get ready for bed, and Trevor started having horrible asthma. Poor kid. He was wheezing and crying. I stayed with him in his room until 11pm, and then brought him to my bed. Fred went to WMart for formula at midnight, in case I would need to take Trevor to the ER. He did finally sleep, though. He was breathing a bit better today, after having albuterol, but I'm definitely getting him in to the doc tomorrow.

Sounds like SUCH fun! Your dad is only 53? I think I may have your age wrong. My friend Angie says I'm forever over estimating the age of anyone who has children. Also, are you a twin? I'm seeing some similarities! I'm glad you enjoyed the time with family - talk about priceless!

WendyJanelle said...

Yeah, you probably have my age wrong. My mom is only 48. Does that give you a clue of how old I might be?

Nope, not a twin, but we get that a lot. Out of curiousity, which sister do you think is my twin? Julie is 18 months younger than me, and Amy is 3 1/2 yrs younger.

Yep, family time is priceless... but it was strange for my mom not to be there.

I'm glad people still think we look alike. I have to agree, looking at that picture. By the way, you are SO pretty. Ha ha.
I love family get-togethers. I look forward to having you all out soon and going out to the trail. The water in the lake is getting cooler, though, I have to warn you. Vu and I stubbornly went swimming yesterday and our teeth were chattering at sunset.

Ann-Marie said...

The girls on either end look the most alike to me. Here's a way to figure out your age. You know how OLD I am right?, since I just celebrated a birthday. How much younger are you than me? By years...I mean. Cause if you knew in days, that would be just be weird.

WendyJanelle said...

A year and a half, Ann-Marie. Do I look that young? :-)

I'm on the left, and Julie is on the right. Just wait 'til I grow my hair back out and dye it dark brown!

Ann-Marie said...

Well, I had you guessed about right then.

I think I may have thought your parents were too young, but I forget that my mom and dad were in their mid-thirties when I was born, so most people close to "our" age have parents who are younger than mine.

Either way, we're all still young at heart and THAT'S what matters most!

One more thing - how easy was it to install that Free Hit Counter? Let me know. Thanks!

Just what are those Woods up to? said...

Hi twinsey! How is Trevor feeling today?

WendyJanelle said...

Ann-Marie, the free hit counter was SUPER easy. The subscription thing is a bit trickier. And the music player is time-consuming, so I just told hubby which songs I wanted, and he did it for me...

Jules,
Trevor has been very cuddly today. A sure sign that he isn't feeling well!! I kept him home today and we kept him fairly still outside, just digging in the dirt versus running like crazy down the street.

Good to hear from you! :-)
