Veteran's Day Fun

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote. Thank You All!

I saw this little saying on TogetherWeSave's blog and thought it appropriate for today. Thank Veteran's, both past and present for all you have done and all you will do. We couldn't celebrate our freedom without you!

Today we went to friends house and just hung out all day. I made a cake, which is no where nearly as good as Amanda's, but tasted good just the same.

I had envisioned I'd do some leaf design on it and make it all pretty but then realized I can't exactly do that without colored frosting or at the very least white frosting I can re-color or any supplies to make frosting so I added sprinkles just to make it pretty.

This is Yohn, answering the phone when Sandy called pretending to be someone else. Can you tell he got a kick out of himself.

We ate together. (Like you couldn't have figured that out by the pictures, huh?)

We played games. This is Debbie getting ready to do a "Humdinger" in our Cranium game. If you've never played Cranium you've got to give it a try. It's the best group game ever!

Yohn's trying to guess the little ditty Debbie is humming. He's veerrrrry focused!

We played a looong game of Monopoly. I was winning until I started being generous with my "debtors" but then at the end of the game realized one of them had snowballed me money-wise and won.

Yohn told Elisha that if he wanted soda like Bethany he had to act like a pretty princess, this is his impression.

Hope your day was a good one too!

That would be so fun to play monopoly with you and Amanda! I can bring monopoly jr. for the kids, and Amanda can bring the cookies!

God Bless

Looks like you guys had a great time. I think your cake looks pretty. Great Veteran's day sayings at the beginning of your post.

That is why I hate Monopoly. I'm way too type A for that game. I don't like games that take forever. My sis loves to play.
