A semi-typical Sunday

This morning Bree woke me up half and hour before my alarm clock. She was crying and sitting in her chair in the living room, and when I asked her what was wrong, she said, "I need my ice cream back!" Maybe she had been dreaming. I helped her to the bathroom and then back to bed. Then I tried sleeping more, but couldn't, so I ate my bedside peanut butter sandwich (it really helps me to eat something before I get out of bed), and got ready for my 7:30 ward council meeting. It was a sunny and cool morning, and I was wide awake at the beginning of the meeting, but by the end I was seriously ready to go back to bed. I'm sure that with me being pregnant they're bound to release me soon...I would really love to stay home Sunday mornings!

When I got home at 8:35, instead of finding the kids eating breakfast and everyone getting dressed, I found everyone still asleep! I guess I had forgotten to wake Chad up. Well, even with the late start we were only 5 minutes late to church. Mason was so squealy and squirmy during Sacrament that Chad had to hold him in the foyer the entire time (he's breaking some more molars). Bree was actually really good, and between the Fruit Loops and non-church related books I brought, she was entertained. Both the kids love nursery, and couldn't care less if we're there or not, but we take turns staying in there because Mason isn't technically old enough yet.

After church we had a healthful lunch of fish sticks and taquitos (and steamed veggies to ease my conscience). Then we all went down for naps. Mmmm nap time. I don't know how long Chad slept, but I slept a good two hours, and so did the kids. I just finished making Pecan Tassies to take over to Joanna's house tonight (she often invites the kids and me for dinner on Sundays). They smell delicious. I don't know how many will be left by the time we get there.

I actually really like Sundays (the worst part is keeping the kids happy during Sacrament meeting); I would like them more if Chad didn't have to work. But they're usually pretty relaxing just like today has been.

It's all a blink of an eye. I so enjoyed visiting with friends in the nursing room and listening to Sacrament over a speaker that was set up.

I don't know how you are making it to that early meeting. Bless your heart.

Give kisses to Bree and Mason.

Nothing like a good Sunday nap!

I love napping on Sundays but it is always a fight to get Robert to join me. Just think, the days of early morning meetings may soon be over and in time for those late night feedings, too. :)
