Lovin' Life!!

*In a voice just like Gru's* "Hello Everybody!!!"
I have had the loveliest weekend ever!!! :D Well, Saturday was regular old Saturday I guess lol. Cleaning, cooking, and the like. I also babysat some that day because Mom and Dad went to a birthday party for one of the men at church. ^_^ So I guess it was kinda boring. :D lol.

Yesterday was my birthday party!!! It was *SO* much FUN!!! I got a HUGE surprise too!!! We have a tradition in our family that when a girl turns 16 she gets her hopechest! Mom and I had been looking at them for a while but I was sure that it would be several months before we would be able to afford one because dad is having trouble finding a steady job and we have had to be careful with our budget. A hope chest is NOT cheap! lol. Anywho, I was watching all the other March birthday kids open their gifts when mom was like "Rachel's is coming from the other room." I was like "waaa??" and Dean and Micah walked out with the most GORGEOUS Hope chest in the world!! It is the one I had decided on and I was really looking forward to getting it! I SO did not expect to get it so soon!! I was so very shocked!!!!! It is beyond beautiful!!! I am in love with it! I got a ton of lovely gifts from my darling brothers and sisters and parents to fill it with and it is sitting in my room full of beautiful things from people I love. <3 <3 <3 <3 It was such a special day! ^_^

After gifts was dessert. Mom had made a whole bunch of amazing things and we all stuffed ourselves as much as we could after the Chicken/fajita/taco salad we had just had for lunch! :D :D After the babies went to bed at 7 o' clock all us bigger kids (bigger kids being Dad, Mom, Dean, Micah, Jonnah, Me, Jo and Q, and josh and Ty) Watched The Tourist. Three words. A-MAZ-ING!!!!! It was GREAT!! Definitely one of my new faves! I loved it! ^_^

It was a lovely day....

I was hoping to watch Megamind last night but the Redbox Josh went to Didn't have it. :P Oh well. I asked mom to bring it home with her this afternoon and I REALLY hope she remembers!!! I love that one. Noni was watching it yesterday evening while I was chatting with her and we were quoting it back and forth! It was SOOOO Funny!!!!!! <3

So. I am pretty much out of things to write about because I just blogged on Friday! :D I guess I'll post some pix from yesterday for you then! Enjoy!

The flowers Jo picked out at the Miller's old house and brought to me. ^_^ <3

    umm, johnna named her bird Samantha? I thought they were both boys?? Um, so I guess the only way you will maybe find out if they are, is if you put a nest in there, and it stays empty for, like ever. Lol!! ;-) <3 <3 <3
