Saturday morning we continued the party and had Kneader's french toast which is all kinds of delicious but the kind of thing you can only do occasionally.
We played more games and happily received more visitors. I didn't get pictures of everyone but here are some:
|Olivia, Braeden and Edgar|
|Missionaries--future, present and past: Desi goes to Hong Kong in June, Braeden is heading back to VA soon-ish, and Clarissa returned from New Zealand in December|
|I love how much these cousins love each other (Emma had left for work). Most of them were looking at Marianne while she took a picture but Carolina is looking right at me. She said, accurately, "This is going on the blog."|
In between hands of Monopoly Deal and UNO and rounds of Codenames, Braeden and Mark have been spending some quality Lego time together. I love hearing them laugh. Saturday afternoon I walked downstairs and Braeden said, "Mom, Mark is hilarious!"
When Braeden left, Mark was his lovable and sort of pesky younger brother. Now, they seem to be closer to the same age. And it's true, Mark does entertain me every day of my life.
Sunday we had what I fondly refer to as the BYU Babes over, Clarissa and Desi. (Sometimes Clarissa's roommate Hannah comes too.) We had dinner and played Codenames. It was Emma and the girls against the boys and me. The boys and I lost every round.
Today is no school because of President's Day. Every day sort of feels like a holiday though.
Table for five.
