family, friends, fun

Working man

Yesterday I had a Pampered Chef party.  2 parties down, 1 to go- then I’m done hosting until Christmas Eve.  Whew!  The PC party was fun, even though attendance wasn’t what I’d hoped (gas is still a HUGE issue here).  Mini vent: why don’t people understand what RSVP means anymore?  I’ve actually been told “Well I didn’t rsvp because I knew I couldn’t go.”  Ugh.  RSVP means Respond Please in French.  Not Respond if you Can come but don’t worry about it if you can’t.  On the flip side I have people who never RSVP but always show up.  Boggles the mind.

I digress.  After everyone left Sara and the boys stayed a couple hours and we played the Wii.  At first I was nervous letting a 3 & 5 year old play with the Wii.  But they amazed me!  They knew how to use the buttons, kept the wrist straps on, and were very careful.  Not to mention extremely excited.  I’ve never had someone so thrilled that I bowled a strike before!  When it was time for them to go Jacob (who’s in Kindergarten now), grabbed his stuff and came over to me.  “Aunt Shanny, we’ll just come back tomorrow to play some more.  I’m off tomorrow.”  He’s v. v. serious about school.  Weekends are his days “off”.  Love it!
