We woke up the next morning determined not to let Mother Nature and her pollen bring us down. After breakfast, Scot and I decided it was time to introduce the sweet pea to Ryder in the form of a slimy green substance. I actually gave it a try and it wasn't so bad (especially in comparison to that nasty formula he had been drinking since he drank his last breast milk bottle last week) He did GREAT! I think he even enjoyed it. Speaking of Ryder, I just HAD to include the video of him "springing" into action with his Jumparoo that he got for Easter. As the morning progressed, we realized that there were a lot of projects around the house that needed to be done in an effort to "spring clean". I first saw the scrapbook lying on my desk and knew I wanted to tackle a few pages. You have to understand that Scot piles things on my desk in an effort to keep all my piles that I leave around the house, in one place. This in turn leads to one HUGE pile, that day after day gets ignored until the weekend. So after the pens were placed in their holder, receipts filed away, and pictures placed back in their albumns, I was finally able to get to the "fun stuff". These were the final efforts of my first two pages, which I was very pleased with! (Thankyou again Aunt Sandi!!)
After tackling a few other odds and ends around the house that included organizing our attic, seperating all of Ryder's clothes that he has outgrown, and bringing all of my clothes down in exchange for my winter clothes, it was a LONG morning to say the least. We had already gotten a few things on sale for Scot so it was my turn to go shopping for some cute stuff for our cruise. I finally got a Maxi dress, and a few pair of sandals that I was in desperate need of. (Thankyou again Mom & Jeff for my b-day cash to Belks!) Of course Tucker had to sniff the bags to see what I bought when we got home. Speaking of my fur-baby, he had his weekly bath and a trim that he was way overdue for! Ryder helped for a little bit, mainly just grabbing at his fur, until he got bored. Amongst other purchases, say hello to our new digital camera. Our dinosaur of a camera was on it's last leg. We would have kept it longer because it takes great pictures, but when you only have a milisecond to capture a baby smiling, the geezer cam just wasn't cuttin' it haha.
All in all, we had a very busy weekend of cleaning and dusting and organizing and shopping and bathing babies and dogs, and somewhere in the day finding a free minute to bathe ourselves, but the best part of my weekend was waking up Sunday morning and getting excited again to go to our new church home! We were greeted by a lot of nice people again and some who even remembered us from last week, which was a refreshing change, from attending larger churches in the past, where we faded in the crowd of people. Most of all, I am getting excited about how God will use us and how we can grow as a family with him. Well, I hope that you all had a very good weekend, and if you have allergies like me, that they are getting better! Have a good week.
