A weekend of parties

Four parties in one weekend is alot of celebrating. It started Friday night as it was my mother-in-law's birthday. The whole family went out for fish at the Coach Light. It was very good. They have those good potato puffs. It's like a big deep fried mashed potato. Saturday I got up early to feed calves so I could take my mom to a 50th wedding anniversary. The party was in Whitehall which is over in the Eau Claire area. It was almost a 3 1/2 hour drive one way. I hadn't been to that area in 27 years! It was nice to see it all again. Everyone was surprised to see us. Got back in time to go to a double 50th birthday party for Mark and Dale at The Bullpen. However, Mark, was on the road coming home from Ohio and didn't even make it to his own party:( But it was fun. They had karaoke and yes I got up and tried to sing. My debut was "These boots are made for walking." I did OK. Today after church we went to Kelly Lake for a snowmobile landowners banquet. Never a bad meal there. It had been a while since I had their chicken and tips. SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!!!

As I told you Mark didn't make back from Ohio to his party. Well, this also made a problem at church. Today at church we had a re-enactment of the Last Supper. Mark was to be the disciple James. So they were frantically searching for someone to play the part of James. So they called and asked if Jerry or Jesse would do it. So Jesse volunteered. He even has a scruffy beard now so he looked the part. He did fine. I have pictures but will post them later this week. I thought it was kind of funny as last week in church they announced this Last Supper service. Jesse was with me and said I would like to see that. Little did he know he would be in it.

  1. Should have taken me along.......not all that far from Jessie's house. I didn't make the birthday party Saturday night as I was Jason and Holly's designated driver to get them home safe from the wedding they were at. Got home at 4 AM. Still tired today!
