Time after Time

Psalm 90:12
12 Teach us to number our days,    that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

This weekend was awesome!  We got so much family time in, so much done around the house, and my sister in law got engaged!  We are very happy for her and Kelsey and are excited for their May wedding.

The weekend started out with Daddy heading to church from 7:30-10:15 for a leadership meeting, while me and the kids did our chores, got dressed and ran a few errands.

Then we met up with Daddy at the pumpkin patch with another family from our Mops group!  Julia and Mark were so excited to head back to the farm and this time ponies were there!

Cheesequake Farms right off Cottrell road has a hay ride/pumpkin picking and pony rides every weekend in October and the last time we went Julia was a bit sad Snickers and Casper were not there to ride!  But this weekend she got to ride Snickers and boy was she happy!

I'm really thankful we got to have a fun family filled morning!  Then we headed to the pizzeria for some hot pizza and more family fun time! (Isn't it nice not to have to make a meal at home or clean any dishes???)

When we got home the kids were pooped!  They took their 2 hour nap (well, Julia did, Mark slept til 4, as usual! what a sleeper he is! I have to wake him up for breakfast and wake him up from nap, he loves his bed alright!)

John and I used our time wisely and I washed the kitchen floor, did another load of laundry, cleaned the bathrooms, and raked 4 bags of leaves while John organized our garage again so we can have room for our SUV...we loaded up the trunk of our car for Goodwill, and it felt so good to see an organized garage and a clean front yard.  And I might add that while I was raking John said, "You look beautiful while you are raking."  Is he a dream boat or what?  I just love how sweet he is.

After nap time we headed to drop off clothes, shoes, and toys to Goodwill, we stopped at the dollar store for some cards, dropped off a rented tool at Home Depot and headed to a Thai restaurant for some more family time!  OH, and the kids were AMAZING in the restaurant...I was very impressed!

We came home did bath time, movie time, (Flipper is our favorite movie of the weekend) and then we relaxed.

Sunday was worship time at church, then home for lunch and nap time and then we celebrated with Cinzia and her family since her son was christened today.

Then we heard the engagement news about Laurie and Kelsey and we headed to Grandma Judy's and Grandpa Jack's to spend time with them for champagne and appetizers!

We found out that we are ALL in the wedding...John and I are part of the wedding party and Julia is the flower girl and Mark will be the ring bearer!

Just think by May I will have a 4 year old and 3 year old...time is flying by!

Lord, please teach us to use our time wisely each day and honor you with every minute you give us!
