Oh what a wonderful day....

Oh my goodness- I'm watching CBS's Undercover Boss , and the "Boss Man" just talked about his conviction to leave conception up to God. It was exciting and refreshing to hear a beautiful testimony tidbit on mainstream TV. (It's only about 20 minutes in, and I've seen several wonderful little moments, like sharing prayer with a woman before they ate their lunches, and one of his co-workers talking about a ministry she was passionate about.)

Just a little side note there.

I was finally able to sit down and have a conversation with my sewing machine which turned out this lovely skirt:


One down, two more to go. (I'm making one for Evangeline and one for my niece, Alexis.) I'll use whatever scraps are left to make flowers to pin on to their shirts. Merikalyn picked this fabric, btw!

Today was a wonderful Sunday altogether. My brother, Chip, and his wife, Tara, went to church with us. The sermon was absolutely amazing, as usual (we're currently going through Mark, and today focused on Mark 7:14-23).

After church, we went out to eat with half of the church. (No joke... our church is pretty small though. I'm partial to small, tight-knit churches.) I stuffed myself with delicious fajitas and fresh, handmade tortillas. Yum!

We came back home and had a bit more fellowship with Chip and Tara before they had to head out. (I'm really thankful that my relationship with my brother has become so much closer over the last couple years! God is good!) Then I got to sewing while my Hubby sawed logs (snoozed) with the baby. The kids were very curious about this new fandangled machine, especially Nolyn. He asked me a bunch of questions and watched my every move.

Hubby is currently using his talent to build a platform bed for our neighbor's son while the kids enjoy the beautiful, cool weather!

Here are a few photos from the day:

The boys "weeding" the garden (aka, playing in the dirt).

Testing out her skirt- she can run, twirl, and play frisbee quite well in it!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. Even though I'm a SAHM, I always look forward to the weekend because I finally get hubby time! I miss him so much during the week when he's hard at work. I wish he had a work-at-home job, but he loves what he does. Still, I know he misses us and looks forward to being home with us each evening and every weekend.

Reminds me of that song, "If I could make a living out of loving you, I'd be a millionaire in a week or two."

WOW!!! I LOVE the skirt...you did an amazing job! I'm anxious to see what else you whip up with your new machine! (I, myself, am a junkie for the 'remnant bins' at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Fabrics, etc to make fun little projects!)

I am SOOO with you on the whole 'although I'm a SAHM I look forward to the weekends because I get daddy time' thing, too...and weekends are never, ever long enough!!!
