So, what did you do this weekend? Friday night Kelvin and I had dinner with some friends sans kiddos at one of our very favorite restaurants downtown, Sam Bucca. It was soooo good! We talked, and talked, and talked, until we almost shut the place down! This old mama was tired yesterday morning when Carleigh's stinkin' alarm went off at 6:30 after I had only had a few hours of sleep! Hate it when that happens! Saturday, Luke had a soccer game, and then we came home for a bit before taking Carleigh to a birthday party. It was so cute. All the girls brought their dolls, and they decorated headbands for the dolls and had a good, girly party. After I got back from taking her to the party, I grabbed a nap. Ahhh, don't you just love naps? I do!
Yesterday evening, Luke and I headed out to get the 5th Harry Potter movie. He is reading the series right now and amazing us with his ability to speed through these ginormous novels! I'm so stoked he's reading. I think right now it's more about the competition between him and his friends to see who can get the most Accelerated Reader points than the actual reading, but I'm not complaining. Maybe the love of reading part will be a side effect. We got the video and the fixings for grilled cheese sandwiches and headed home. By the time we got home and ate dinner, it was too late for a movie, so he watched it today. Kelvin and I stayed up last night and watched Downton Abbey. Are you a fan? It's kind of addicting, if I do say so myself. It's also kind of cool that you can watch however many episodes your little heart desires on Netflix. We got through one, and crashed during the next, so we'll have to catch up another time.
Today, we got up and enjoyed a leisurely morning, then headed to church. I enjoyed the message very much. It was about conflict in marriage. The scripture came from Ephesians 5. Our pastor said we have to get the part about being under the influence of the Holy Spirit and submitting to one another before we get anything else. It was good stuff! Very good indeed!
We headed to the grocery store after church, and I bought stuff for lunch. I made Pasta with
Looking forward to the week ahead. Hope yours is splendid!
