What a wonderful, busy, weekend!
First up, my darling husband took me to see The Phantom of the Opera! I am STILL on the musical theater inspired high it gave me! If you have the opportunity to see the most recent US Tour of the Broadway show, do it! 🙂 It doesn’t disappoint. That night we came home and let the girls color faces on their pumpkins (to be carved out the next day). They LOVED coloring all over those pumpkins!
The next morning, we relaxed by baking muffins, playing Chutes and Ladders, and swinging in the sunshine. My favorite sound in the world? Hearing my daughters laughing and playing together. Sounds of childhood joy and innocence can’t help but make me smile. The pumpkin carving adventure was a little less fun for them (because I wouldn’t let them touch the knives), but they thought the finished product was super cool. 🙂
Saturday evening I was blessed to spend some time with my sister and her precious children. I needed some baby love and sister fun! We popped popcorn and watched How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, one of my all time favorite “chick-flicks.” Sunday morning we were able to worship our God together and then fellowship over a meal. I am so thankful my sister lives close enough to me to make days like this possible. It’s been too long since we’ve had such frequent contact!
That isn’t the entirety of the weekend, but I’ll spare you any more details. I hope your weekends were also filled with love and encouragement that you can take with you throughout your week.
