LIFE IS ..........BUSY (Part II)

Last week, Sept. 12-14, Marc was in Fargo at their home office. Mickey & I went to Owasso each afternoon to stay with Aric.  Since it is about 40 miles from our house to theirs we decided to just spend the night there.  That was easier than having to get up so early to get to school and get us back here on Tuesday morning by 8:30 for King's Kitchen. 

Then on Tuesday, since I have the WOW Women Bible Study, we decided it would be best for just Mickey to go up after school and spend the night.  On Wednesday we both went up and waited for Marc to arrive home about 9 p.m. 

Coweta Fall Festival was held from Thursday evening, the 15th, until Sunday the 18th.  Some wonderful friends of ours from church who have started Koweta Work Force (which is a program to train  developmentally challenged youth) had one of the food booths to raise funds.  We called & told Marc about it and he and Aric came down to Coweta to have lunch with us and help support this effort. 

It rained, and it poured rain!!!  You can see the main area almost completely deserted.

Nevertheless, we bought our meals.  Marc & Aric are literally standing under the canape of the food trailer to try and stay out of the rain as they eat.  We were soaked to the skin by the time we got home, but you can tell we were still having fun and enjoying ourselves.


Last night, September 23rd was our dear friend, Don's birthday.  Mickey & I took he & Barbara out to dinner at Zio's and had Marc & Aric join us.  Don & Barbara are truly "extended family".
Wonderful friends for many, many years and also wonderful prayer warriors. 
Marc & Don
Susan, Mickey & Aric

Marc & Don with his birthday sundae.  I always tease Don because he's OLDER THAN I by 3 months & 2 days.  That counts......doesn't it?!!!!
Aric having typical 12 year old fun where ever we go or whatever we're doing.

Then we came back to the house for cake & coffee.  I made a cake called "Preacher Cake".  A new recipe and it was so good.  A fun, enjoyable evening.  Life is good.
