Double Date

Another great weekend at the Shofner-Worland house! Chris, Melinda, Noah and I did a Wii workout together Saturday morning and Donald had a good laugh. As you can see we looked a little silly all lined up in front of the TV doing yoga poses. Noah really enjoyed it and I think he was the best out of all of us! Saturday night we went to Vineyard, then out to Tomo for a delicious dinner. We had great food, fellowship and fun and ended the night with coffee and bananagrams...my new favorite game!! The boys even let me read them a bedtime story when we got home! If I wasn't baby crazy enough, we had a bunch of people over on Sunday to watch "The Business of Being Born." The documentary was really interesting and inspiring! Melinda was so nice to let me fill up the house and share her experience with people she just met :) Here's some photos from our eventful weekend (sorry I didn't take any pictures on Sunday).

Here Comes the Sun

The Shofner-Worland Clan enjoyed a lovely day in the sun! I think we were all grateful for the outside time, even if it only lasted one day. Coleman was able to use his outside toys and enjoyed showing me all the fun things in the backyard. Everyone else played bat ball, a modified version of t-ball, and as you can see things got a little competitive. We even went for a walk/bike ride/wagon ride around the block and saw lots of neighbors and dogs before dinner. The novelty of change has started to wear off a little bit, at least for me, and the longer we're here the more I appreciate being surrounded by so many caring people. Sure moving in with another family seems to be drastic for people (especially in our culture) but I really feel this is the way life should be. Instead of being isolated and cut off from one another  we should be communal and help each other out in the backyard, the kitchen, and life.

Saturday...with no obligations!

What are great day! Chris and I finally had a Saturday without any obligations. We spent the morning making homemade pasta, playing with Noah & Cole, doing yoga with Melinda and enjoying the sunshine. This evening we had delicious pasta and homemade pizza and had a family picnic in the living room for the UK basketball game. Despite several stuffy noses we enjoyed being one big happy family. I'm so happy the new living situation is working out so well! I got a little snap happy...here's a selection from today's events :)

Snow Day

The weather has actually been wintry recently, something new for KY. We woke up to lots of snow and ice and all got  to stay home. I think the kids are going to be confused when we all get back into a routine, unfortunately we won't all be around to play with everyday. Until then I think we all enjoy the company. Coleman loves to play the Handy Manny song over and over and over and dance around with Chris and Noah, its really cute, for awhile. Here's some pictures of the dance, snow & ice, and Noah learning how to play Mario Kart!
