Molly did a great time as the flower girl--she was soooo cute in her dress and heels. This time we had her hair very simply pulled up and away from her face--she looked so grown up. One day when I figure out how to get some videos on here I will post some of her busting a move at the reception--that girl has moves I've never seen in a white girl!
We got home late last night, and then I stayed up until about midnight working on school work. I feel pretty good about things--I have a good draft written on my paper, took plenty (15 pages!) of notes for my quiz, and printed out my stats assignment so Chris and I can work together on that. I don't know what I would do if I wasn't married to someone mathematically inclined. Me and the maths don't get along AT ALL!!! I still have to reply to the discussion board questions and aesthetically listen to a piece of music, and I should be good to go.
Tonight is Chris x 2's Volunteer Appreciation dinner. That's always a good night--Chuck Holton will be speaking this year. It's just fun to thank the people who show up every Sunday to take care of my babies and everyone else's babies. AND I don't have to cook--yes! The guys decided to order Olive Garden again--oh yes! And Lindsey will be making some desserts--oh yes! It will be a fun evening.
Tomorrow is church--this month will be a little busier because it's my turn to sing again. I really, really, really enjoy doing that when it's my turn. I have had the opportunity to sing with different people due to a few pregnancies (not mine!) and it's always so much fun no matter whose turn it is. There are a lot of great people I've gotten to know through the ministry. I now understand when people talk about being blessed through serving. I find it a joy to give up my Thursday evenings for practice and to get to church an hour before to work all of the kinks out. It's not even like a rock-star thing. I'm very aware that I am by no means the most talented singer--there are plenty of people who are better. However, there is something very wonderful about singing and using your gifts at church. I can't really even explain it.....it's just a blessing.
I should probably jump off and get the girls ready for dinner. Lily is so grumpy today--she has a nasty diaper rash and is so tired from being out late last night. I'm hoping to let her sleep until right before we need to leave to help her be a little more cheerful. Poor baby! Molly was rewarded for being such a good flower girl with a Camp Rock t-shirt--she wears it with pride! Camp Rock has nothing on HSM and HSM2, but it's clean and cute, and she's obsessive about the Jonas Brothers. She's a piece of work--I can't wait to see what she will be like when she's a teenager. That girl is a trip!
