Weekend Recap

This weekend was a whirlwind of activities and fun:

Ice cold water
Italian food
A great sermon
and Awana's
just to name a few of the "highlights".

Friday evening I participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but you'll have to wait for the video for that......if blogger cooperates that is. :-)

Saturday was a day for Princesses.

Saturday morning, dresses, make-up and up-do's abounded.
A birthday party fit for a princess with tea and cupcakes and ballroom dancing.
(But you'll have to wait till another post for details.) :-D

Saturday evening was spent at one of my favorite restaurants, Provino's, for a birthday celebration (mine if you're asking :-D). John stayed home with the kids, so it was just me, Dad, my brother and one of their friends, Clyde. I was also surprised with a cake when I got home that John and McKayla made for me. <3

It may look like it belongs on Cake Wrecks, especially with the squiggles
and the candle wax drips but it's postively beautiful in MY eyes b/c
my husband baked it and my daughter decorated it. :-)

On Sunday we had a sermon on phone wasn't cooperating with me, so I wasn't able to take notes. :-( but we read from Mark 2:18-28.

Sunday afternoon, my brother came by so HE could participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (that video will be forthcoming too).

Sunday evening, McKayla attended her first Awana class of the year......I think it'll be a good, fun year for her. This will be her first year in the "real" Awana class where she can participate in all the fun and crazy activities they do.

So there's my weekend recap. A few teasers and a few things that don't really warrant a post of their own but I still wanted to share.

Hope yours was a fantastic weekend full of fun and adventure!

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
