It's been a whirlwind of a weekend! Jeremy and I spent the week slowly getting our house together for our church group to come over for "Movie Night on the Lawn." More like "Redneck Drive-in." We basically set up a makeshift movie screen on our house and turn on a projector and watch a movie. Everyone brings food, lawn chairs, and blankets. We had about 20 people, kids included. It was a success!
We watched "Race to Witch Mountain" with The Rock. We needed a family friendly movie. I can never calm down enough to actually watch the movie.
Jamie modeling her (my-ha!) warm jacket and fuzzy blanket-two must haves for Saturday night. It was chilly!

The guys usually shoot skeet before we eat. I guess they have a lot of fun doing that. They also throw a football around until we beg them to come in and eat before the food gets too cold.
That's a really far off picture of the guys in our backyard shooting things.
We ate a plethora of mexican casseroles, dips, and desserts. I made a recipe I saw from Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life-Dinner Recipes Post. It was for Mexican Cornbread Casserole. I liked it, I think I may have to throw that one in the dinner rotation. I also got lots of new dinner recipes to try out. I also tried Paula Deen's Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies.
No this is not an actual picture of the ones I made.

This is Paula Deen's picture. I omitted the pecans. I'm sure they woulda been good, but not sure how many people like nuts. My cookies were much uglier, but it didn't matter because they were gone very quickly. I heart red velvet anything and when I was looking up this picture to show I saw a recipe for Red Velvet Bread Pudding. Um, I will be making that.

Here's some more pics from the par-tay!Becky, Sadie, and Katy- two of Farmington school's finest teachers

Brittney and her two kiddos. Let me say I am impressed that she can carry them both. I better start building my arm muscles for the days when I (hopefully) have more than one baby

This is Jonah on the right with his buddy, Aaron. Aaron is 6 weeks older than Jonah. They are becoming quick buddies.

An action shot of me and a spoon!

I would have loaded many more pictures of you guys (thanks Jamie and Nick for the pictures...I obviously stole them from your Facebook page!) but it takes forever to load them and move them where I want 'em. I lost patience!!

I am headed down to Little Rock tomorrow for the Dave Matthews Band concert. I will probably be driving down and back in one day. I just can't stand to be away from my fam too long these days (I haven't left Jonah overnight yet...I know I'm working on it.) I better head to bed or I will be doing this tomorrow:

Goodnight Y'all!

The red velvet cookies were delicious! Don't be too impressed--I was only carrying about 45 lbs total.
