Perfect Sunday

Yesterday was one of those days that you look back on and think about how perfect it was. The kids were behaved, the guests were relaxed, and everything went so smooth.
We invited Rachel over for a bar-b-que, she had said she wanted to go to a bar-b-que before she left to go back home. Luci grilled up some chicken, shrimp, sausage and hot dogs. I made some scalloped potatoes, sauteed onions, and baked some pies.
I have never baked pies before and they turned out really good. Now don't go thinking I am Betty Crocker because I am not, I used store bought pie crust and for the cherry pie I used the canned pie filling. I guess the only thing homemade about them was that I made the blueberry pie filling from scratch. I did do the lattice work on top and popped them into the oven. You could just say they were semi homemade. LOL
While Luci was grilling Rachel and I scrapped away in the scrap room. I got 3 LOs done and she got 4 done. We were on a roll yesterday.

Kristine stopped by to say hello and meet Rachel. They got on really well and she ended up staying for about an hour and a half.
Then after dinner we all got together and played Uno. I won once and then took one for the team on the second game so Josh couldn't win. LOL I had 1/2 the deck in my hand. Then we played Yahtzee, I love that game but it's probably not a good idea to play with a lot of people. Very slow going unless you get 2 sets of dice and split up.
It was just a fun and relaxing time. I finally took Rachel home about 11:30 and then came home and crashed.
I didn't even bother with the dishes until the next morning, why ruin a perfectly good day by cleaning. It can always wait until later. Right?
