Weekend Shenanigans

Sami's Shenanigans

This weekend was so much slower for us than we've had lately.  It was a treat!   And, the stress the past few weeks from the furlough is over, so we could really relax!!  Thank You, Jesus!

Friday night we babysat the silliest, sweetest almost 10 year old triplets (2 girls and a boy) and their 4 1/2 year brother.  It was an evening full of Uno, Sardines, playing the piano and having  talent show, and Nerf gun wars.  And Isaac and I still managed to catch up on two episodes of Duck Dynasty before our friends returned home from their date night.  I'm not positive, but Isaac and I might've had the better date night.  :)

Saturday morning came waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too early.  Each year, I get up insanely early one weekend in October to stand in this line...
....for tickets to FBC's Celebration.  This year Isaac was sweet enough to go with me.  Tickets go on sale at 8:00, but we get in line about 6:30.  My family likes a certain row of seats, so we get their early so we can reserve those particular tickets.  The people at the very front of the line got there this year at 4:30.  Ugh.  It's always a fun time of chatting with strangers, talking about Christmas, and making new friends.  This year included hot chocolate handed out by the music minister of FBC.  What a treat on one of Houston's first cool mornings!

The rest of Saturday was spent baking pumpkin ginger bread and pumpkin snicker doodles, watching the Aggie lose, enjoying a long walk with the dogs, and cuddles on the couch catching up on The Middle and Last Man Standing.  

We had a beautiful morning of worship followed by taking some in our middle school class to a local nursing home to lead their worship service.  These kids are amazing!  They put their nerves aside to speak with the residents, sing for them, and one of our dear girls can preach so well!  We love these kids and their awesome families!

How was your weekend?

Mmm, snicker doodles! I love low key weekends, too.
