  • It was nearly 2 when I climbed into bed last night and we slept soundly until 6. My clock rang first and then Robby's. We probably could have stayed in bed longer but goodness gracious, I heard those girls squealing upstairs. I went up to make sure that everyone was happy and there were no foul attitudes. They were all good, so I headed back downstairs to get myself ready.
  • Robby was ready first and began on breakfast-waffles, sausage and eggs. The girls were mostly dressed and eating by 7:10 this morning. At one point, one of the girls said "why did we have to get up this early?" I explained that they did not have to get up at 6 and could have slept a bit longer.
  • After the girls all ate, they walked Hannah home so she could head to her church. If I would have let them, they would have all played outside but I herded them in and they watched a bit of tv. While they did that, I cleaned up some (like a mad woman) and Robby picked up Whitman from Grannymom so they could go to church and Anderson and Graham from Nonna so she could go and check on Beebee (who isn't doing very good.)
  • Then it was time to load up for church. Campbell, Graham and Anderson sang in both services and Graham had a little speaking part. Robby watched the first service and we were all able to see during the second service. We did keep Whitman with us since I am not too sure he is 100% (going to get an appointment tomorrow). Robby sent him home with Grannymom after Sunday school and on our way to big church, I asked if he sent Keaton home too. Whoops, we had forgotten her-she was happily playing in her Sunday school class.
  • Of course during big church, Campbell and Keaton snoozed and Robby and I were not too far behind them. If Anderson was just a bit taller, I could have put my head on his shoulder and taken a nap too-but that would have probably been frowned upon (since we were on the 5th row.)
  • We had lunch at Grannymom's house. The kids played for a bit and then we headed home. At home, we were productive all afternoon and marked many, many things off of our list-ha! Nope, we had ourselves a long and wonderful nap. Did I mention that it was a long nap and it was wonderful nap?
  • It was pretty late when we finally did have our leftovers for supper. Campbell and I had been busy finalizing her Halloween costume-Doc McStuffins. The kids then all ate and everyone watched a few movies before bedtime. I am sure that they are all exhausted. Reagan went to bed tonight sleeping on her new sleeping bag in the floor-Robby said that he did that when he was little too so he didn't have to make his bed each morning. Everyone will probably be asking for sleeping bags for Christmas now.
