Lets give thanks for friends

Ok so first a confession.

I have fallen short in the prayer department. I don’t know how it happened, it just used to be part of the routine. Yet somehow we fell out of sync and forgot to do evening prayers.

Well tonight I remembered that we had been missing something so after a really long story we said our prayers. We ended it with saying 3 things we are thankful for.

MB’s were

1) Happiness

2) Friends

3) she looked at me and I said the beautiful weather we got to enjoy today.

MB then added a few other thoughts on other things she was thankful for and we talked about God for a bit. MB wanted to make the point that God, even though we couldn’t see him, was always there and alive with us.

Heart melting.

I will not forget prayers in the future.

What a sweet moment to wrap up just a wonderful day with my little family.

Now to tackle the next item on my to-do list, finding us a new church. The last step in getting us settled in.

Saturday Bliss

Posted on June 26, 2010. Filed under: Me, Myself, and I | Tags: , , , , , , , |

What a perfect Saturday, and not just cause I am in a good mood that vacation starts tomorrow.

The day started off by all 3 lovebugs snuggled in bed lazily preparing for the day. Chatting, watching TV, looking at the computer till our bellies started to rumble.

We then headed out to breakfast and enjoyed some yummy food sitting outside at the Breakfast Joynt.

Then it was off to do a little shopping we all needed hats for our trip to Hawaii. Then Target for more sunscreen and a birthday present for our friend Kendall.

Home for a quick nap and a little World Cup, and we headed off to the Aquatic Center for a fun birthday party. Our first trip to the community pool (complete w/ diving boards, raft slides, and a lazy river) Maddie was extremely excited and as we walked up said “This is going to be the best party ever”.

We saw our friends then proceeded to do round after round through the lazy river. Taking turns getting each other soaked by the buckets or other fountains. I must admit the lazy river was a wonderful idea for a community pool. What better way to enjoy your afternoon than to float on a raft. We couldn’t do the diving board or slide yet– Maddie has about 4 more inches to go…but no one really cared. The lazy river was just fine.

Even with pizza and birthday cake as we left the pool, best buddy decided it was the start of vacation and what better than a trip to DQ. Blizzards all around…then Maddie come home and asked for something healthy for dinner. One thing summer, sun, and lots of pool time brings on is a healthy appetite. Now off for bedtime showers and packing for vacation. YEAH!!!!!

My happy little family makes me smile…and it was really special to see Maddie so proud of us (especially best buddy) today too 🙂
