Slow Weekend Preparing for a Busy Week!

This weekend was a family weekend. Friday night was a low key evening. We cooked dinner and watched a movie in our PJs!

Saturday we tried to sleep a little late, but because Parker went to bed at 7:30pm on Friday night he wanted to get up at 7:30 Saturday morning. I cooked breakfast (which I don't always do Saturday) and we started the day watching football. It is amazing how Alabama can not be playing football yet we have to watch football....ALL DAY LONG!!! After breakfast we got ready to go in to town. Parker needed new shoes! I must say that infant/toddler shoe designers could do a little better! How can you get a wide foot in a narrow opening???? Doesn't work! ANYWOO....we got some cute New Balance tennis shoes in a large size of 4! It was nice having Braxton with us shopping. We walked up and down the store front pushing Parker in the stroller. It was a nice afternoon. Saturday evening we spent at the house playing with Parker and "picking up" the house and of course watching football! Parker also had his first taste of Baby Mum-Mum aka a teething biscuit. Wow, he had fun with that!

Sunday we got up and went to church. We had an amazing service. Bishop Nassan Ibrahim from Africa preached a powerful message on prayer. This was the 5th or 6th time I had the opportunity to hear Bishop Nassan. He really opened my eyes to my prayer life and how I want to change things. The first point of his message was "Jesus prayed". He talked about how Jesus had no problems, nothing to pull him down, nothing to weight him down, yet he PRAYED! After an awesome message we had an unbelievable altar service. I really feel like the congregation at Christway needed to hear and see the move of God.

Sunday night was preparation for the week to come. At work we have our largest event of the year, the Liz Hurley Ribbon Run. Parker and I will be staying in Huntsville all week long because of me having to work late and of course the weekend is the event. Nana and Papa will be a big help this week! While I was packing, I put Parker in his Johnny Jump....what fun!!!

Hopefully this will be a good week. I PRAY that it will be as calm as possible and that I will have patience with myself and with work. HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!


Angela said... may already know but for those extra fat feet you have to get their shoes at Sikes or Stride Rite they makes Wide and Extra Wide. They are more expensive but they fit alot better that is where I have to get Kason's shoes.
