Operation Survival: Day 5

This Sunday wasn't themed... proper Church attire was required instead.

Black and red were the colors of the day. When Mr. and Mrs. Rutter came in to drive us to church, they'd even color coordinated!!

After church, the Rutter's came home with us to have lunch. Veggie lasagna was on the menu. Here they are with Ellie, waiting for us to pour the drinks.

Ellie convinced Mrs.Rutter to massage her feet while Ellie read a coloring book to her.

Ellie and the boys napped, while KK read The Silver Chair aloud to Emma and Nana. Teatime and Proverbs reading were to follow. 

When tea things had been cleared, we pulled out Tune Twister, a Cranium game, that is great for crowds...especially if they like to sing!

Nana helps Aedan count  the beats in the measure.

Ellie grabs the microphone...needless to say, the rest of us had to pretend to use one for the remainder of the game.
Then we pulled out the Game of Life, Ellie wasn't interested in playing, so she watched an episode of The Muppet Show, while we played. While we played the game, Brianna made french fries, and potato chips, Ellie's requested "meal" as a snack.  Nana found a final bottle of apple sparkling cider on top of the cupboard in the kitchen, left over from New Year's Eve.

We played and chatted, laughed 'til we cried. Then, Ellie went to bed. That's when Uncle Frank stopped by, with four boxes of Domino's Pizza!

This one is just too cute not to add...even though it doesn't fit here.

Who could resist that face?
