I love my friends. I love that we can talk about anything, that the house can be a mess, that we live close, and most of all, that when we get together, between the families we have 10 girls. Girls appreciate the extra touches and the things that I find fun so its fun to do them. I have detailed some of our night on the dinner blog.
M. helped me demonstrate that we had provided so many wonderful things for the perfect picnic that we were just overwhelmed. We likened it to the blessings our Heavenly Father has given us to help us in our lifetimes. After our picnic, we played Disney Scene It, then watched Facing the Giants.
May I recommend this movie as the best family movie I have seen all this year and last? (That is if you like blatant gospel messages in your movies. I do.) I have now seen it twice and I have cried both times. I dare you to watch it and not wipe away a little tear. It is about facing the giants in our lives, big and small, and how he can fight our battles if we have prepared ourselves to the best of our abilities. Who doesn't need this type of encouragement?
