I see Marlee like this and I just have to laugh. I wore knee high nylons to church on Sunday (under my boots) and Marlee wanted to wear some too. Why not? She also chose to wear them today. What a girl. They go well with the glasses.
Not the best photo but in it you can glimpse the look of my "pyjamas" as Pastor B liked to call them. I again participated as a "flagger" (is that a word?) in the closing ceremonies of the mission conference going on this month at church. And because our part was at the very end without a time to step out, I got to wear it all service. Definitely not my comfort zone.
Matt called us down early this morning for "Mini Church". He had the vacuum cleaner set up as a microphone, the coffee table over as a piano and chairs for us the audience. He then mastered the ipod and chose "Blessed Be Your Name", "The River Is Rising", "Entertaining Angels" and "Step Up" as songs for us to sing together while he "played" the piano. It was really quite neat.
I spent most of the day quietly, with Marlee and the kids taking it easy (more tv then usual because of her surgery) but I did get my LOAD done - and I have to say - I think this may end up being a favourite!
This little sweetie pie did A-MA-ZING today! We went to the hopsital for 7am (no food or water since midnight - well 8pm really), got prepped and had surgery for her strabizmus shortly after 8am. I was called in to see her around 10:30am where I found a very sleepy, sad, and upset little girl with a very "stingy" right eye. She was not a happy camper and I don't blame her. Alternating between trying to sing to her, let her listen to the ipod, snuggle (on a regular chair), give her juice (which she didn't want), give her popsicles (which she did want), I kept her soothed as much as possible. It was a drastically different experince from when she was 10 months old and couldn't tell us much. But she really was a trooper. Here we are at home, resting with a cold compress and examining her "third nipple" as we called it. Poor kid. Here's to a quick recovery!
I am a SAHM striving to balance motherhood, child care providing, volunteering, hobbies and more with being the person God intends for me to be. I have a terrible memory and like to scrapbook so for me this blog ia a place to record those details. So know that I may just add in details and adjust them chronologically. That's just me!
