Dinner at our home! =)

After this past week with Mom S's spell she had, we decided that we would go ahead and invite them over to our home for dinner. Although David and I have been together for over 10 years now, we could not remember a time when we have had them over for dinner before. We thought it would help her out so she didn't have to deal with that this week. She still needs your prayers, as they still are unsure what is causing the racing heart. She has Doctor appointments and testing this week. So, hopefully she gets some answers so they can get it under control. So, we had them over today and I was a bit nervous! I really shouldn't have been seeing as though I have known them and been around them for years, but the fact knowing that it's my in laws and what if I burn something, or something doesn't turn out, what will I do?? She is such a good cook, I would have been mortified!
Well, turns out it all went fine!! David grilled some New York strip steaks (he grilled a ham slice for me), we had baked potatoes, corn, beef rice, (thanks Tonya, used your recipe!!) and rolls. It was all good and it was nice to have them over for a change. I hope it lessened the load for even just a day for her. Guess we should do that more often!!
Besides that not to much going on yet. I am working overtime again for a short period of time. David is heading up another Church project in Shamokin at his work. He is just ending a Church in Elysburg that he was also in charge of running. I am having a baby shower here at my house for my brother's girlfriend, Nicole in March,( they are having a girl, Brooke Nicole!!) I am having a Silpada jewelry party here in April, so, we will soon be busy again!!
Once Spring rolls around in the next few weeks hopefully there will be more to blog about. We have big plans for this Spring/Summer. To get the basement pretty well finished, plant a vegetable garden, and landscape. So, that's all for now folks!!
Us last Sunday before Church.

Mom and Dad S. before dinner today.

This and that

Here are some pictures from the latest happenings around here. Not to much besides SNOW! Seems to be all the time too!
Last Saturday's snow.
David running the snowblower for the first time this year.

My new shelf that David hung up for me!!

Living room.
David finally put the hardware on our cabinets!!! It really makes it look different!!
Now to get the crown molding up on top of the cabinets!! We already have that too, just got to get it up!
Close up.
Snow that was blowing and drifting on Sunday.
It drifts across the road the whole length of our propery. Township loves that I'm sure.
Blows right across diagonally our front yard onto the road!
The new wrought iron cross that David hung up above our bed. It's needs something else there too, but I really like it!
HA!! Austin loves to put people's shoes on so I put my boots on him and he was trying to walk around in them. It was hilarious!!! Poor kid and the things we do for our entertainment!! :)
He couldn't get up!! HA, HA!
Superbowl party. Matt, Erin, Reecca and Austin. They were dancing to the halftime show.
April, Eli and David watching the Superbowl.
Becca and Austin.
They were so cute dancing around!
What Mom?? HA, HA!
Today's snow! I stayed home. David went to work. :( But at least he's only working at the shop since the roads are bad.
Snow, it's all it ever does! Guess that Groundhog was right. :/
