Weekend Wrap Up

Well this past weekend was rather quiet. A lot of outdoor yard work and race watching for hubby, my son played a lot outside with his friends, and I did some grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning and napping.

Hubby raking leaves. What you don't see a rake? Look real close and you can see it ----- just kidding there is no rake. He did not feel like doing all the hard work of raking and picking up so he got out the trusty lawn mower and mowed our dead grass picking up the leaves as he goes. hehehe

Here is Bub enjoying the outdoors. It was really nice this weekend, not too hot and not too cold. During the day anyways. At night we were freezing our tails off.

This is Bub on our way to church, he has a whole Oatmeal Pie crammed in his mouth. The Breakfast of champions indeed. I know your all thinking what kind of Mom feeds her child a Oatmeal Pie and then sends him off for the Sunday school teacher to deal with hyped up on all that sugar, but he had eaten some pancakes and was being difficult getting dressed and when he asked me for it I was just trying to get him out the door and into the car so we were not late.. I caved like always..ughh

This was our first Sunday back in a long time. I had a lot of anxiety after my son was born that made it hard to be around a lot of people at one time and it has only been in the last couple years that I don't break out in a full sweat and start panicking when I am in those sort of situations. I am glad we finally went back, Bub had a blast and we went to the Contemporary service which was a lot of fun. I also enjoyed our Sunday school class. We were reading 1 Corinthians 13 1-13 about Love and in my Bible, (NLT Touch Point Bible), it has these little writings on the pages that help you better understand certain scripture and since I have a hard time with the thees, thous, and those I love my bible because my brain can process it. Anywho in this little helpful hint it tells you a good way to check your understanding of love is to substitute your own name for the word love and re read the chapter. Atleast for 1 Corinthians 13 4-8, the rest it sounds funny with my name in it:}

And of course I must end my blog with a gorgeous picture of Ginger:)


  1. We did a lot of outside work as well. But then the weather turned cold so I have one more day to stay inside. Come on spring. We stayed away from Church for a while ourselves but now we also go to a contemporary service. I like it.

  2. You know Jeremy thinks that oatmeal cakes are oatmeal with a little sugar added, therefore an acceptable breakfast food!!

  3. Too bad my kids were too sick to enjoy the great outdoors with Caleb this past weekend! Oh well, there's always this coming weekend!

    I'm very proud of you all for making it to church! I know it was a big step! What better time than to start the season of Lent back in church!
