Popping in...

Well, hello!
I know it may seem like I have fallen off the face of the earth... but I'm still here! I've just been slightly busy with everyday... um, busy-ness :)
As a matter-of-fact-ory... I need to go right now and attend to that busy-ness, but before doing so I just wanted to quickly pop in and say "hi" and also post these pictures I took of Brooke the other day.
She had a birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROOOOKE!!!) and we spent some time together on her special day photo-shooting. 
So, without further ado... here they are!
Happy weekend everyone!

Like a Waterfall

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Running wild and free

You hear my heart when I call, when I call
Deep calls to deep

Your love is like a waterfall, waterfall
Raining down on me

This weekend past, a bunch of guys from our church (Dad and brothers included) went on a canoe trip.
Us gals at home decided that this was a perfect time to have a..... GIRL PARTAY!!!

So Megs, Becka and our good friends the Theissens came over to help us have the best time.
And ohhhh my, a "best time" we did have!

Everyone arrived mid to late afternoon.
We had barbecue for supper.

Kerri became our official "photo bomber" for the weekend...

Ain't this gal a beauty??
She be my sister :)

Course it wasn't exclusively a girls party... we had some cute little boys running around as well :)

We had this girl doing all of our work for us :)

After supper we had a jam session, playing music and singing for a good two hours.

Meanwhile Grandma here got some snuggles with her ADORABLE lil' GRANDbaby.

Mrs. Mandy and Mama. 
Love them both!

After doing the evening chores, we... or should I say Megan made us some "peanut butter cheesecake" blizzards. Let me tell you, if you have not had Meg's blizzards... you have not lived!

In-betwix we took some groupies.
As you can tell by these pictures, we were... welll, kinda rowdy :)

This girl is amazing, and fun. It was awesome getting to know her better as the weekend progressed! 
I'm quite sure that we scared her with our loud sister banter...  lets just say she now knows how us Pauls girls like to have fun :)

I said "Meg, put peanut butter in Kerri's face." 
She. Did.

After getting all sugared up and becoming louder still... we played a game.

As the clocked ticked towards mid-night our mamas headed to bed, while the remainder of us brilliantly decided that it was time to burn off some blizzard-inhaled calories.
We introduced Shayla to Jillian Michaels.
I didn't get any pictures... so just imagine five sugar high, sleep deprived women/girls doing an insane ab workout. I'm not sure which activity burned more calories, the laughing or the workout!

I won't tell you what time we got to bed. (Megan wouldn't stop talking :) 

In the morning we had a breakfast of french toast.

Afterwards all the ladies, with the exception of Shayla and I, went to a few garage sales in town.
At home we took care of the babies and made some pizza for lunch.

After some visiting and a little bit more jamming, we had us a campfire complete with s'mores.

We did another Jillian workout together before our guests had to leave.
And that was our weekend!
The guys came home late the same evening, full of stories from their adventure.
And we too carry memories that will last us... until the next girl PARTAAAY! :)
