Croissants With The Sister Missionaries

P1130327 Autumn had a cheer game this morning at 9:00, and it was raining until about 3 minutes before we got to the stadium. Then it quit raining and was windy and cold. I was PERFECT football weather in my opinion. This picture cracks me up, b/c the cheer coaches didn’t have the sign velcroed  together before the football players started running towards it! We yelled for the girls and coaches to get out of the way, and they did just in the nick of time. LOL!

P1130330 I think the girls look so much more crisp and polished when we cheer at a stadium instead of the grass fields. Plus, us parents can see the girls and the actual field and football game so much better from up in the stands.

P1130335 They did great during their half time show. No one scored in the first half and then our opponents scored once and  we never were able to make a come back. Our best player who always gets the ball got injured on a few plays. But, us cheer parents were secretly glad we lost b/c that means we don’t have to go to the Super Bowl next weekend. It’s the same Saturday as our cheer competition and we don’t want to have to go to cheer competition and then turn around and go cheer at a football game!

P1130353.JPG We came home and got a few things done around the house and then we went and picked up the sister missionaries. They had challenged Autumn to read The Book of Mormon for just 5 minutes everyday for a week. They said if she did, then they would get her her favorite treat. She chose croissants from Cheddars. She didn’t meet the requirements of the challenge, but we went to Cheddars anyways since she got all A’s and one B on her report card! Plus, transfers are coming up soon for the missionaries and we wanted to take these 2 sisters to Cheddars in case one of them gets transferred. We love these sisters so much!

I asked them if they had heard about the church’s new policy change about how children of same sex parents and marriages can’t be blessed or baptized. They hadn’t heard anything about it, so I’m glad we were able to tell them and explain it so they aren’t caught off guard if someone brings it up while they’re contacting.

Since the sisters had never been to Cheddars before, we splurged and got the huge tower of onion rings, the honey butter croissants, our regular meal, and then the monster cookie. It was all delicious and well worth it to let Autumn know how proud I am of her for working hard at school, especially math which is difficult for her.

IMG_9858 We brought the sisters back to our house for a minute so they could look through my bags of jewelry and see if they wanted anything before I give it to Goodwill. They each picked out just one or two things, b/c they can’t really wear big huge earrings on their missions. We dropped them off, came home, and got some things done around the house. I uploaded 101 pictures to be printed at WalMart for Project Life, b/c I haven’t printed off pictures in a while.

We went and picked them up along w/ a few other items, and went over to Nate & Riannon’s. They had made some copycat Olive Garden zuppa toscana soup and invited us over. It was delicious and hit the spot. We stayed and watched part of “The 10th Kingdom.” Riannon said it’s a show she used to watch w/ her Grandma when she was younger. It kind of reminded me of a cheesier Once Upon A Time. Autumn was really into it and didn’t to leave even though it was past her bedtime. Riannon said Autumn could borrow it anytime, so that appeased Autumn.

We came home, I got her to bed, and then settled in for some nice Saturday night alone time. My idea of a fun Saturday night ... Christmas tunes, a mug of hot chocolate and 101 pictures to put in my Project Life album. I know, I’m a wild and crazy party animal. LOL!
