Thursday Tidbits

*Yesterday was our last morning of gymnastics! It was a fun class but I don't think we'll re-enroll until Ems is a little older. She was the youngest of the bunch (along with her buddy Emery) and some of the moves they wanted the kids to do were a little advanced for their age. They had fun running around though and it was fun to see the sheer joy on Emersyn's face as she ran around. I took this picture (above) on my phone right before we left; doesn't she look like a little gymnast in her warm up suit? My mom got it for her at Gymboree, LOVE IT!!

*Tuesday morning I was having a bit of a rough time; I can't remember why exactly. All I know is that when I went to Bible Study and got to hold my precious little Sophia Rose, all was right in the world. :) It surprises me how much I LOVE my friends' kids. I mean, duh, of course I like them and am happy they are friends with Emersyn. But I truly LOVE them, like a family member. I am so proud of Sophia's mommy too. You know those women who are just natural parents? She is one of them.....Sophia is so lucky to have her!

*This week has been a little crazy and Emersyn has gotten to spend some good times with my mom due to me working and having various other commitments. Normally I get really sad when I don't get to spend as much time with E but since I know she is with her MiMi I am okay with it. They are such little partners in crime together and it makes my heart SO happy to see and hear them play together.

*This morning I had a meeting for the ladies retreat that I am helping plan at my church in February. It was refreshing to spend time with older Godly ladies and come up with our theme. I am excited to be taking on a bigger role in women's ministries at my church and it's very timely seeing as I will have a little more time on my hands after the first of the year. I am really praying that God will use me in this ministry. I am a fairly confident girl but whenever I leave these kinds of settings (like my meeting this morning) with women who I don't know incredibly well, I get so nervous afterwards and thoughts flood my head like "I hope I didn't say anything stupid, offend anyone, etc.". I know that my confidence needs to come from God and through Him, I can be assured that I am doing the best that I can.

*Three weeks from tomorrow we are going to Sunriver with some friends for a couple nights. I cannot wait!!!! Sophia and Stella, two of Emersyn's besties, will be there with their parents and it's going to be so fun. Just thinking of the cute picture opportunities is enough to make me squeal with excitement. :)

*I am thinking that I am going to overhaul my blog after the holidays. I think I need a new title, especially if we are thinking of adding to our family in the not too distant future. ;) I'm excited, it will be a new chapter in my life as a SAHM and deserves to be commemorated with a new blog title, etc. :)

*This Saturday night we are having a family night, just Brett, Ems and I. I am missing a dear friends birthday party but because of the crazy emotional weeks that I have had, I need a night OFF. Not that having my mom here is stressful or anything, but I definitely need a night to re-coop from the chaos of the last few weeks. I just hope Vanessa can forgive me. :(

Happy Thursday everyone!!

Vanessa has already forgiven you, for the record. :)

Although, she is a little sad that you aren't going to be there, she totally understands.

Love you friend!!!!
