Sorry I made this post Monday and forgot to post it.
Well mike will be leaving soon to go on his mission to Macon Georgia. He gave a great talk in church on Sunday on the atonement, if you want to hear it it is on our family web site easysite.com/rankinfamily. After church we had a farewell get together with who ever wanted to show up from church and family. We had a good turn out and I enjoyed seeing people I had not seen for a while. It was great to have them all say good bye to Mike.
I think the one who will miss mike the most is Hali. Mike is so good with her and she loves him so much, it will be sad to see them part. Just weeks ago Hali had to part from Lizzy her best friend, and now Mike. It is so sad just thinking about it. She loves dong stuff with Mike. Hali will go wake him up some mornings, she runs down the hall pounds on his door and says, "Get up Mika!" he eventually gets up and brings her in the room and they just sit and chat, she takes his phone and they play. She likes watching movies and being thrown in the air by Mike too. He gets her to do the craziest things some times. It is so cute to hear her say, "I love you Mika!" She gives him hugs, kisses, high fives and the "Rock." She still teases with him and says "Mika...Dabie, dabie, dabie!" The other day Mike made her a play house out of a box big enough for her to walk in and she loves it. He made a little window to play peek a boo and put pillows in it for her to sit on. When she got in she sat down and patted the floor and said "sit, Mika," then "come Moma, sit." We all sat in there together and she squeezed her self between us and just smiled very satisfied with the out come, then she said,"out!" So I go out and she got out then she said "Mika, out!" He eventually got out, with a few more demands. It was so cute, we had a lot of fun.
I cut the pineapple Hawaiian style!
These are the appetizers I made, one fruit and one veggie.
