The weekend is here! and an Anna story too

Being a stay-at-home mom I don't always care about a weekend. To me, it is just another two days in the week. I'm still cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner(except on Friday night), doing laundry and disciplining children.

Same thing, 7 days a week!

But today seems a bit different. I don't really know why. It just does.

Today we started out with french toast. Daniel suggested it, Samuel helped make it, it was a good time.

And then I have a hair appointment at 12:30.

Is it a bad thing when the lady that cuts your hair calls and asks when you would like an appointment? It is isn't it? I'm not real good at seeing the signs of bad hair until its too late.
Like Sunday mornings.
I always notice that my hair is out of shape, too long, and gray on Sunday morning. So I have asked Suzi if she would please let me know when I (or anyone else in the family) need a haircut. And she did.
And I love her for it!
Love.
Her.

After the haircut and style I will then proceed to sweat by the pool.
Well, we actually have a pretty good set up at the pool. I can sit with my legs in the sun, my face in the shade and a fan blowing on the back of my head.
Heaven is going to be a lot like this. I just know it!

And after the pool, we are heading to the bigger town (but not the big town) to eat with the in-laws.
Not all of the in-laws, just my in-laws.
They are coming for the weekend to watch my angelic children while Stephen and I have a conference at church. Isn't that nice?

It is, but it will take 2 days to get them undone from the grandparents visit.
I don't know what you grandparents do to the grandchildren but it takes a good 48 hours to get it undone!

And all of that is just today! Saturday and Sunday have yet to play out! Its going to be a good time. I'm excited. I have a smile on my face (that is for Mom and Abby). And am ready and able to do whatever comes my way!

Now for the Anna story:

David reminded me of something Anna said quite a while back, maybe a couple of years ago. I don't know if I shared it with you before but I will now.

It had been raining for a couple of days and Anna was tired of it. So tired that she said this:
"I'm going to tell Jesus that if He doesn't make it stop raining I'm not going to give Him any candy when He comes down to get us!"

Maybe the reason Jesus is tarrying (that is for my friends Tracy, Dana, Jill and Nathan!), is because He doesn't like the candy that is being offered.

Hershey come up with something good soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a great weekend!

I love that great story from Anna. Have a great time with Stephen. Do your in-laws like to watch other kids? Me and Big D haven't been out alone in forever! ;)

I really enjoyed reading this post! I can relate to the weekend days being the same as the week days. I love Anna's comment.
