More on this later but our cousin from Indianapolis and her family stayed with us Sunday-Wednesday and it was so wonderful!! It was so much fun to have little ones in the house (4.5 and 2...well behaved ones at that!) and Ernie was in heaven. Ernie is relentless and A loved throwing his ball...
As social as Jon and I are, we love hermit weekends. We love weekends where we decline invitations out and spend them just the two of us, catching up on sleep, tv, movies, house stuff, cuddles, etc. I used to feel bad if there was a weekend where we didn't go out and see friends but I am just as introverted as I am extroverted. I thrive on having "me time" and don't do well if I don't feel caught up with my husband and in my home. Anyone else feel the same?
I got a lot of funny comments on the picture on the left, mostly sexual funnies which I didn't even think of. I mean...we are married!! And men take off their shirts in public, he is allowed to take his off in his own home with his wife :-). I was just showcasing my back rubbing laziness, y'all! We watched Our Idiot Brother and Hangover II, we had seen both but they were on our movie channels.
Ernie also loves weekends where we are at home...means more ball time, walks, and playing. His perma frown (except when he is panting and looks like the Joker) cracks me up! And have you ever seen anything so white next to something so black?
I also love making Ernie do human things....he hates it but is a good sport. I was actually trying to make him balance on the yoga ball, like those elephants in the circus. Again, he frowned.
It's no secret Jon and I love praise music, not because it gives us a chance to worship our God in the car, etc. but the music is just really good. I think I've mentioned it before but Jon went to University Baptist Chuch in Waco, TX in college when David Crowder was the worship leader...how cool is that?! We saw DC over the summer and were excited to attend SpiritFest this past Sunday.
I feel so blessed that Jon and I can love each other through our faults, weaknesses, joys, and strengths because our humble God loved us first.
In other news, we are so excited to host family over Thanksgiving, namely Embry is staying with us! I got anxious and got down our Christmas decorations but won't let myself put any up....gotta give Thanksgiving it's time to shine (although the Saturday after Thanksgiving it is winter wonderland time)
Can't remember if I posted this pic of not but my firstborn chunkpot hamming it up...
I want to thank each of my readers for following along in our random/crazy journey of life. I'm thankful that the Lord has given me the opportunity to blog and connect with all of you!
