For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Fall Break

We had Fall Break Thursday and Friday.  It was so much fun!  Thursday morning, we went to get doughnuts for Sam's good report card.  He was so excited.  We played outside for a while, took good naps, and then went to Sam's soccer game.  He played a little better and even scored a goal...for the other team.  He got so caught up in the moment that he forgot which way he was supposed to be going. We still won the game.  It was our 4th win in a row.  I find it so funny that the leftover team, the one with no coach, keeps beating everyone. Friday, we stayed in most of the morning, and I caught up on housework.  When Sean got off work, we went to Tuscaloosa.  We went to Aldi, Target, and grabbed a bite to eat.  It was a fun night.  Saturday, we all headed to the new house.  Sean finished up all of the plumbing, and I primed two bedrooms.  The boys really wanted to help.  A lot of paint ended up on the floor, but they had fun.  After good naps, we took the boys to Peggy's.  She was so sweet to keep the boys so we could go to Brian and Angela's wedding.  We've had a babysitter only once before, about a week before Thomas was born.  It was so nice to get out, and the wedding was beautiful.  Today, we went to church and then stopped on the way home for a little photo session.  It was such a great week and weekend!


Thomas' facial expressions are so funny these days!

Weekend with Pop and Linda

We had a great weekend with Pop and Linda!  They got here Friday afternoon, and after the boys played with the treasures they brought, we went to eat supper.  (Sam had fun decorating Pop's head with stickers.)  Saturday, we hung out at the house, played outside a little, and then went out to eat. The boys loved all the attention from Pop and Linda. They brought a caramel cake from Sugaree's for our birthdays, and we had cake and ice cream when we got home.  This morning, they brought doughnuts over, Sean made a big breakfast to go with them, and the sugar kicked in.  They acted like donkeys while we all watched.  The boys watched from the door as they drove off, and we were all sad.  We made great memories, though!!

Pop, Linda, and Luke threw the soccer ball for about 30 minutes.  He loved it!

They always love Linda's water bottles.  She is so sweet to share.

The boys woke up Saturday hoping to swim at the hotel.  Unfortunately, it was closed.

Pop played hide and seek with Pop.  He was counting.

They pretended they were sick this morning.  They took tuurns being the patient and the doctor.
