Sunday Visitors

Yesterday was the perfect Sunday afternoon to invite Grandpa and Grandma Leader to our house. We had not seen Grandpa and Grandma Leader since the weekend before Christmas when we celebrated the holiday at their house. The girls had been asking about them. We had talked on the phone, but just had not seen them in weeks. They arrived mid-afternoon and Grandma played cards with the girls. Grandpa and Keith watched the football games on TV. We then all enjoyed a supper of chili, hamburgers, cinnamon rolls and Grandma's strawberry shortcake for dessert. It was the perfect way to spend a winter Sunday afternoon and evening.

On a side note, I have neglected blog land the last week. I was so consumed with getting voting codes and entering votes that some things just fell by the wayside, but I am back until the next cause consumes me. Thank you to everyone that helped me by getting voting codes and voting. Now we have to wait until the first part of February to see if our school won the $100,000. The voting ended Friday night at 11:59 p.m. and our last vote was entered at 11:58 p.m. Win or lose this year they better look out for us next year.

Take care,
