HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!


This morning I gave Abi her bottle and had hopes that she would go back to bed so I could go back to bed. It didn't work. She just babbled to herself for a while. I had thought of getting up and making Todd breakfast, but I didn't really want to. His scrambled eggs always taste better than mine.

I went into my bedroom and asked Todd to make breakfast. He agreed. I know, you are all thinking I am the worst wife ever. Did I fail to mention that I just so happened to be sharing my birthday with Father's Day this year? I deserved Breakfast. He cooked and I cleaned. Good deal I'd say.

We all got ready for church and by noon the kids were whiny and tired and ready to go to bed. AAUUGGHH!!! Why can't they wait to whine until we are in the car on the way to church. It makes it so tempting to put them down for a nap and forget about going to church all together. My sister-in-law Angie had mailed a package and in it was this adorable and perfectly sized cuddly blanket that Abi has fallen in love with. You can see in the picture that she is nearly asleep on it.


So, instead of staying home we just go to church as soon as they start whining, knowing that they will fall asleep in the car. We arrived at church a half hour early. Connor slept the whole meeting on the pew. LOVED IT!

Happy late birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day. Doesn't it seem like church is NEVER at a convenient time? No matter what time it's at, it's always nap time for one of them . . .
