We had a great weekend doing a bunch of nothing, and sometimes that's just what you need! I woke up early with the kids on Saturday, and spent some time planning for a future trip. I don't want to talk too much about it now, but I know it will be "magical." ;)
While I was working on the details, Eli played Monster Trucks and watched TV. When Eric got up we played around the house before running to a greenhouse down the road for plants. We grabbed lunch at McDonald's, ran a few errands, and cooked a country breakfast for dinner.
This morning we went to church. I wish taking pictures of everyone dressed up was as easy as actually getting them dressed. My goodness, it never works out! Eli hates taking pictures and Eric hates making them with the camera. What you're seeing is the best I can get.
I have to remind myself that it's not about having perfect pictures, it's about documenting our life, and right now this pretty much sums it all up...CRAZY!!
We came home for a quick lunch after church, then I had to head back for a baby shower. We're about to have another beautiful girl in the nursery! I can't wait for Ellie to have a new friend.
As you can see, the ladies did an amazing job on the decorations! It really was an amazing shower, and it reminded me of how blessed we are to have such a loving and giving church family. It also reminded me that I have yet to blog about the shower they threw for Ellie back in January..oops! I'll get on that!
After the shower I headed home and we worked around the yard while Eli played in the sprinkler and Ellie rocked in the swing. Both kids were super tired, and I couldn't get anything done. I gave up, served Roman Noodles for supper, bathed the kids and had them in bed by nine. I'd say that was the best part of the whole weekend!
