They're back!

I am so glad to have my boys back, but I sure had a great time with my Sweet Potato while they were gone.  Peyton left on Thursday and Friday was a free day!  We cooked together and went to get an ice cream treat!
Saturday she made cookies for her Daddy and brother's return
Then we ran some errands (this is at Toys R Us) and went to our friend's to swim
This is what Aaron and Jory were doing on Saturday
And in the wee hours of Sunday morning we headed out to pick them up!
This is the shirt Aaron bought me!  He also got his sister a purse!
On Monday Sis and I waited while Aaron got his haircut - much needed!
And today we tried a new Southlake restaurant for lunch!

Glimpses of the week

This has been an amazing week!  As has become my MO, I did not take many pictures, but I will try to recap. On Thursday I went to Ohio and on Friday I flew back with my niece, Peyton!  Jory sent me this picture when I was in Ohio.
 We were delayed on Friday and got home late and Saturday morning was pretty slow as the boys were getting ready for Ecuador, but after we dropped them at the airport, we did some shopping in downtown Grapevine.  Peyton bought some cute shirts and Abigail had some finds of her own.  She actually found an amazing red velvet Christmas dress on a sidewalk sale that we bought.  She, of course, wore it Sunday in the July heat.

After shopping we enjoyed Hibachi and drove around Southlake.  Sunday morning Peyton read to Abigail before church.  Abigail has on her heavy velvet dress.  After church our Sunday School class had lunch at Fuddrucker's and then Peyton and I went to a baby shower. 
 We went Shopping at Southlake Townsquare in the evening and stopped at Starbucks.

Some updates from the Missionaries
 On Monday morning Abigail sent her daddy a picture of a heart shaped strawberry she found in her cereal.  Monday we spent the morning swimming at a friend's and went to Grapevine Mills Mall in the afternoon.  Peyton and I went to Bible Study Monday night.
 Tuesday we met my dear friend Charity and her girls in Terrell



Another Missionary Update
 Peyton wanted to eat at Cheesecake Factory.  Isn't she pretty?
 Wednesday morning we made homemade strawberry muffins
 Then we went swimming at another friend's
 And fed the ducks at her pond

Wednesday afternoon we saw a movie with the Elliotts and Thursday morning Peyton left.  Then Abigail treated me to a dance show.
It was a fun, fun week.  And though my communication has been insanely limited, the guys are having an amazing week in Ecuador and Aaron is doing great!

Aaron's basketball game

He won the medal for having 7 rebounds (in 2 quarters of play) and getting a little beat up in process but being totally awesome about it.  He also scored a basket and a free throw.
