Happy Birthday Grannymom!
(click here for today's pictures)
  • Coughy, I mean Campbell, slept very well last night but is not coughing her little head off in bed now.  Thankfully, it seems that after a good coughing spell she does sleep soundly without coughing.  We debated sending her to Sunday school this morning but the other option was coming to our Sunday school class and sitting through big church so that was not really an option.  She did fine though and when she isn't coughing, she is perfectly fine and doesn't feel sick.
  • Robby wasn't too pleased with our slim breakfast choices this morning-they weren't really too slim but out of pop tarts (gasp!).  So he said that he would hurry so we could leave in time to stop by McDonalds for pancakes on the way to church.  After we received the pancakes (2 orders), we realized that there were only be a few more McDonald stops that we can get by with 2 orders of pancakes.  
  • Robby had nursery duty this morning-so that means one week of sickness, one week of my nursery duty and one week of Robby's nursery duty-means that only once this month we will worship together as a family.  That just doesn't seem right to me-anyway, I will just move on...
  • Since Robby was in Keaton's class during church, I had everyone in big church.  This always makes me a bit nervous since the boys do listen to Robby better than me (though I do know the perfect spot to pinch their little arms to quickly and quietly get their attention)  I had no need to worry, they were absolutely perfect-beyond perfect.  I could not have been more pleased with my little Dennies.
  • We then headed to Dana's house to celebrate Grannymom's birthday.  Dana had a yummy lunch and the kids loved playing outside (as long as Wilson, the dog, wasn't anywhere around).  Everyone sang Happy Birthday (not very well though-maybe we should work on it).  Soon though it was time to head home.
  • As soon as we were home, we unpacked the car, unpacked the bags and then repacked everything for choir.  By the time I had emptied the dishwasher and made snacks for the kids, I only had time for a 30 minutes nap-remember I am napping for 2 so that was a short nap!
  • We had to wake Keaton and Campbell up for church but they woke up easily with some goldfish crackers in the car.  The kids were all good in choir and then it was big church time.  A little boy that Anderson knows was sitting across the aisle from him.  He was quite spirited and Anderson was watching intently.  My boy did hold it together and stayed still and at least acted like he was listening-though tonight during ice cream truck, I asked the kids one thing they heard in one of the sermons.  And all I received was blank stares from everyone.  
  • Tonight while we were picking up Campbell, we walked past Graham's school class.  I told him that we were going to drop him off and Ms. Stacy would be there is just a few hours.  He knew I was kidding but Anderson was quick to add "I would be happy if you would drop me off in the cafeteria"-that's my boy!
