What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Still Kicking



Here I sit, three days after arriving home, and only just having the time or energy to devote to posting photos from our weekend away. I know. Tis not like me at all.

Since coming home, one thing after another has hindered me from getting anything accomplished. Things are not going smoothly over here. Or maybe that is just a good excuse?!

Well, regardless, I thought I better get on here and write SOMETHING otherwise I might be thought of as dead. Or at least, seriously maimed.

Which I am not, any more so than usual! :-)

The weekend was wonderful all the way around. It was fun filled, family filled, and brimming with special treats we don't often get. There was the candle at Walmart incidence, and our frantic search for a wine store that lasted many a street's length (had to mention those Mom! Just for YOU! hehehe), the Long Island Iced Tea in the smoky hotel bar. Fun times that only happen when my Mom is around, she is good at finding fun. That's for sure. The billiard tables stood empty only because Matt wasn't with us. My how I did tease him about that one!
The wedding itself was a bit stressful for me-as I was trying to manhandle my two babes alone...and take pictures.

I gave up on that after a while, only in order to keep my sanity. The ones I did take turned out not so well, since a jovial Panda was jostling my elbows every chance he could. I didn't get a photo of the children and I together, as I had hoped, simply because there wasn't time. Too bad too-we were looking pretty dapper...the three of us.

But the wedding stress aside, the rest of the time there wasn't a care in my head.

I love times like that.

So here I am. I am not dead. Or maimed. Just trying to resume life as normal.

Which is highly unlikely, since after all, this week is not a NORMAL week!

It is EXTRAORDINARY, so surely must we be!

Since Bloggerland is momentarily silenced by the celebration of family and friends together for Thanksgiving, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for posting all of these photos. I did miss your posts, but I was part of the reason you weren't able to find the time to do it, which is one of the reasons I'm so thankful for YOU. I wanted you to know that it was very nice seeing you back again and being able to be a part of your world :)

Happy Thanksgiving Dear Sister!!! And tell your Husband, and childerlings the Same :)

I'm glad you had a nice trip and arrived home safely. Sometimes it's the breaks that give us the clarity to realize daily life is so fantastic.

I'm glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving.
