all Gmail invites are gone! Sorry, but I am sure they'll be passing out more soon!

We had a great weekend. Saturday was our last shower in East Texas at the church. It was very nice. My niece (a bridesmaid and cohostess) really got me good. She had tons of ingredients laid out on the bar and told me I had five minutes to put together a cake from scratch and get it in the oven...and that I couldn't use a recipe!! She also said that when it came out that Michael had to taste it!!!!! Oh my goodness, I didn't have a clue! I had a tiny bit of help from those there, but needless to say, it wasn't my finest dessert! It wasn't too bad, it was edible at least! Like sweet biscuits more than cake, though - Ha Ha!

Elaine came up for it and spent the night with us. Saturday night after showing her around town, she went with me and Michael to grab a burger in town, where Dennon met up with us and we went to the East Texas Jamboree. This has been in Broaddus for a few years, but I had never been. It really was a lot better than I had expected and apparently doing very well! There were of course plenty of opportunities to make fun, but I have to say I was impressed. They did a wonderful job and growing up listening to old country & gospel music I do have a fond appreciation for it!

After that Dennon headed home and Michael, Elaine, and I went home and watched a movie before deciding we were too sleepy to stay up any longer!

After we got back home yesterday Michael camped out in the living room for the first Sunday of football and I took Elaine home. Then Kenny joined up for some shopping and lunch before I headed back home!

When I got home Michael had my b'day present waiting on me!!!! Tonight we're going out to dinner. They have recently opened a new HB Japanese Steak/Sushi restaurant and I have been wanting to tonight's sushi & hibachi!!!
