The rest of the weekend

The rest of this weekend was very busy as well!  On Saturday morning, I worked around the house while I waited on the air conditioner man to arrive.  He came and fixed the air conditioner around 1:00.  While I was getting ready for Ruby's 2nd birthday party, I noticed that it was getting pretty hot again, so I went and checked on the air conditioner, and the fan was not spinning.  So, I called the man back and he said he would come by and look at it again.  It turns out that he put in the wrong part and he didn't have the right one, so he had to order the part.  I don't know why these things always happen to me on the weekends!!  The part was supposed to come in today, but he called me this morning and said that it would be tomorrow between 10 and noon.  We will see if that happens.  :)  On to more happy things....

Ruby's party was super fun for all the kids!  There was a water slide and a bounce house, with Dora everywhere!  She sure got a lot of presents for a two year old!!
Sunday was very busy.  We had our church fish fry on Sunday night, with a silent auction.  If only I had more money, I would have come home with many prizes.  :)  I did really want this pumpkin, but Ashley stole it from me!
Oh well, I think I might try to make some kind of door decoration similar to this one.  So if any of you have any suggestions or ideas for making things out of this screen, please let me know!

I put a "gift certificate" for some cupcakes in the silent auction, and they did really well, so I was excited!  I always get nervous when I make stuff for other people.  Hopefully the winner will like them!  I haven't heard from her yet about what kind she wants.

I also made some brown sugar icebox cookies to bring to handbell practice tonight for Ashley's birthday.  They are not the best cookies that I have ever had, but they aren't awful.  I told Ashley that I had never made them before so they might be gross.... so at least I warned her!  :)  And I got caught up in a tv show and burned one of the batches, but the dog (Hershey) was super excited to eat half a dozen burned cookies.  haha.


  1. Jessica, I really enjoy reading your posts. They're very fun! :)

  3. I'm sure you can find an even cuter pumpkin than mine! Thanks for not bad mouthing me too much in your blog. :-)
