Weekend of Smiles

Jacqueline had an appointment in town this past Friday morning, so she and the grands came down Thursday afternoon. And the weekend flew by ...

These kids LOVE baking!
So this weekend I had a "Tiger Cookie" mix to try something different ...

and they were YUMMY!
{pay no attention to the man in the gray shirt -- he surely wouldn't be sneaking any of that dark chocolate drizzle... would he???}

Lucy and Jacqueline had a birthday party to go to Saturday afternoon. So, Dan & I got to hang out with Tag ...

When did this little guy become a little boy???
He loves hanging out with his Grandad -- can you tell?  I found his Ocean Pacific shorts (actually they're swim trunks) and his Starter Athletics t-shirt on sale Saturday morning. He LOVED them!

As we waited on "his girls" to get home, Tag made us pizzas!  He loves pizza sauce & turkey pepperoni ... and Go Veggie! lactose-free cheese (aka... "Tag's cheese" or "rice shreds" or "the only cheese Tag can eat since he has a dairy allergy").
Lucy eats her pizza with just crust & cheese (no sauce and no pepperoni --
she had acid reflux as a baby so cannot tolerate spicy foods). 
PS ... it's a good thing Granny forgot to pre-heat the oven! When Tag saw that I was making pizzas, he insisted that he NEEDED to put the pepperoni and cheese on them!

Church this morning at the movie theater!  We have 3 physical campuses plus an online campus. We actually live in between the church building campus and the movie theater campus. The little ones love going to the theater campus and we do too! We have friends at all 3 campuses, but this is our "home".

And then lunch before they hit the road back to their house.  Lucy shared her tiara hair clip with her Mommy ...

and then with Grandad!  He's always a good sport --
even outside of the busy sandwich shop! 
Dan absolutely loves these grandkids --
and they love him just as much!

relationships are worth every moment of sacrifice ...
relationships are worth every moment of effort ...
relationships are worth every moment...
Have a blessed week, my friends!

Amen to those statements about relationships. Your posts are always awesome.....of course, I love seeing pictures of your sweet little ones :) they keep growing up! Last week one evening Aidan was figuring out how old he (Aidan) would be when baby Noah is in second grade......whoa. Let's not go there!!
Have a great day, Susan! Thanks for sharing your family with me.
