Enjoyable Sunday

I miss Alex every day, but today, I missed him extra. I missed having him around for church and for our lazy afternoon and then for the two hours I had to myself while the kids were at AWANAS. It sure would have been nice to be on a date with him during that time. :) Soon enough! Right?!?

Anyway, this morning at church, it was extra special because some wonderful friends joined me and made it all the more special. These are the same friends that spoiled me with dinner at their house the first Friday that Alex was gone and blessed me with my very first Chicken Fried Steak. These are the same friends we walked home from school with this past Friday. God has placed them in my life during this season and they have been a constant! I am so thankful for their new friendship and for the ways God is already growing it! 

After church, the kids and I came home and watched a little Veggie Tales, had some lunch, and then were pleasantly surprised with a Face Time Chat with Alex! Always love those kind of surprises! :) 

Then we all took afternoon naps, much needed in this house today. Madison has had a cough (due to her enlarged adenoids) and it's been waking her up super early in the morning and then she is unable to go back to sleep. She is so sweet and does such a good job of trying to be quiet and lay in her room until it's time to get up, but unfortunately her coughing ends up waking up Hudson and of course, I'm already awake. So, the nap this afternoon was wonderful!

Tonight was the AWANAS Harvest Party, so there was a lot of excitement in the air as we got ready to  eat dinner and head on over to the party. Madison was so excited to get to wear her Tinkerbell costume again, as well as have her hair put back in that sock bun I mentioned yesterday! Tonight was Hudson's first time at AWANAS. His group is called Puggles. He had so much fun. It was a wonderful evening and now the kids are in bed and I'm winding down for the evening.

If you think about it, please say a prayer that Madison is able to get a full night's rest tonight! It is overdue! Thank you! :)
