Our weekend was pretty busy. It was my mother's birthday on Sunday so we went into New York on Saturday to celebrate at my brother's house. First we went to the cemetery and placed a pot of pansies at my dad's grave. They look so pretty! We had a great time, but when we got home I still couldn't think of anything to write about.
Sunday was church and we took my mom out to dinner at a nice restaurant. The Youth Group was in charge of the evening service. Olivia played her bass which sounded really good. And then she gave her short sermon...the one she gave at Fine Arts a few weeks ago and will give next week at the District level.
She was so good. She spoke on how we shouldn't be like the Israelites who wanted a earthly king...we shouldn't make other things our gods, etc. I was very impressed with her.
Yesterday I invited some ladies from church over to surprise my mom with another little party. That was so nice. I set the table really pretty, used my good china and crystal. Made quiche, salad with chicken and stuffed tomatoes. For dessert I made my delicious fruit tart.
I would love to share pictures of EVERYTHING with you but unfortunately I did something so out of the ordinary for me. I used my new tablecloth and napkins yesterday. After everyone left, I wanted to put everything in the washer to get them clean and ready to use again for Easter Sunday.
About 30 minutes later, I'm looking all over for my camera. I wanted to download the pictures and put a post together to share the past few days. WELL...guess where I found my camera?
