We lounged around with the kids for awhile and decided to head to Costco for some groceries.
BIG MISTAKE! Please remind me that going to Costco on a Sunday the weekend before Thanksgiving is NOT a good idea! Usually Jeff is the more patient one...not today!
After the little ones got warmed up and jammies on, Dominic set up some fun speakers that light up with fun colors to the beat of the music from his Ipod. We turned off all of the lights in the upstairs hall and had a dance party. Aunt Shawna came over and was thrilled to join in on the party. (Jeff was m.i.a. downstairs "manning" the fire.)
Hmmm...what made today different? I have to battle the part of me that thinks that it was the more relaxed atmosphere of not having to get everyone up and out to church. Days like these make that small part of me say, "Maybe we shouldn't go a little more often."
But I know better...I know that it is worth the challenge...what is REALLY happening...and continue to pray every Sunday that "today will be different."
