Making My Home Sing andMenu Plan Monday

It's Monday again so that means it is time for Make Your Home Sing Monday at Moms The Word Blog.
I was having a hard time thinking of what I wanted to do for this week. I have decided that I am going to work on showing gratitude for all the things in my life especially the little things. Showing my children that they are such a blessing in my life. Making sure to notice the little things that get done and sometimes just gets overlooked.
Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was good. Saturday I had early morning errands to take care of. We had a brunch that a neighbor was giving for my next door neighbor who is moving today. It is sad they have not only been great neighbors but she also has become a good friend to me. The brunch was a lot of fun with yummy food. The people that had the brunch are an elderly couple who moved out to Arizona about 6 years ago from New York. What a hoot they were.
I then took E'lyse and Faith shopping for a bathing suit. No luck in that department for a modest bathing suit.
Alan had taken Gabby to a movie, lunch and to The Bass Pro shop. Gabby got a badge for a pretend fishing then she got to do archery. She had 10 arrows and hit the dear with 5. From what Alan said she beet out all the boys there who weren't hitting the dear at all. She got another badge for that. They then had smores . I guess this is something that the Bass Pro shops are doing for the summer. They have classes and thing for the families to do on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. She had a blast!
The girls and I got home. I did my hour on the treadmill. Then Coco, Kyle and Talmage came over and we had dinner and visited.
Sunday was a good day. We got up early as usual. Alan had breakfast together and then worked on some paper work that needed done with a lot of talking. I did my treadmill time (feeling good). Then got ready for church.
We went to church and had a spiritually uplifting time. L=The lesson on praying in Relief Society (this is a meeting that is for women over 18) was a really good lesson.
Got home and had Mexican Stroganoff that I stuck in the crock pot early in the morning. It was really good. This was one of the freezer meals I had made with Coco a while back.
In the evening Coco, Kyle and Talmage came over to visit bringing brownies. E'lyse had just made a pan of brownies too. So we had brownies, pie and ice-cream. Alan was a doll and bought a strawberry/ rhubarb pie (one of my favorite) So much for the treadmill work before church. he he
We had a good time visiting and laughing. After the clean up Coco, Kyle and Talmage went home taking E'lyse and Dallas to spend the night so they could hang out some more.
The rest of the night was very restful. So all in all it was a good weekend. Now I am all refreshed and ready for another great week.

Ya know, it's probably easy to be positive towards your family, because you feed them so well, they're probably nice all the time!!!

You really are a good mom.

Amen to the attitude, sistah! It always helps to be postive and seems to uplift everyone else, as opposed to bringing them down!

Mr. Linky is cooperating right now so I will go ahead and add your link. Thanks for joining us today!
