We kicked things off on Friday afternoon with Terrell getting off early (yay!) and then me enjoying a girls night (double yay!). Friday night was SO fun! Just 3 mamas hanging out, talking, sharing, laughing, and eating good food. =) We had the best time. And I'm so thankful for my friendship with these 2 special ladies and how we're being intentional about planning girls nights. I think every other month might be a good pattern to follow! And I'm especially thankful for the understanding fathers of our children. They're good dads and husbands. =)
Saturday morning we tried sleeping late but at some point during the night the night light in the big boys' room went out and so when one of them woke up at the crack of dawn to a pitch black room, he was scared and couldn't go back to sleep... and therefore woke up his brother. So, since we were up earlier than normal for a Saturday we decided that Terrell would go and get breakfast for everyone. Something we rarely do by the way. On Terrell's way back home from getting our breakfast, he was involved in an accident. We are praising God that he is totally okay and unscratched! The accident wasn't his fault... in fact he was stopped when an accident that occurred in front of him made it's way over to him in a matter of seconds. Even though it scared us all and of course we wish it wouldn't have happened, we are just so thankful God protected Terrell from being harmed in any way!
Our family car, however, did not go unharmed. It was pretty beat up.
In the meantime, we're able to use my mom's car... affectionately known as "The Cop Car". Ha!
The remainder of Saturday was spent talking to the insurance company and researching new cars and stressing out over not having our own family car for what could be multiple weeks. I may or may not have had a mini pity party until I remembered to count my blessings. Sigh.
On a funny note, Layton learned a new trick... how to take a tumble into one of his big brothers' toy bins. Haha! After got inside he wasn't that impressed with his trick.
Sunday was good. Church was good. The weather was good (if you don't count the crazy wind). And supper was good. I actually cooked last night! Something I never do on Sunday nights. Terrell left for his last training this morning so he got a good meal before having to eat out all week and now the boys and I will have some leftovers for today and tomorrow. A win, win!
This weekend was way more eventful that we expected but God has been faithful to protect and provide and we are sooo thankful. Happy Monday!
