Since Jeremiah was on call/at the hospital all night last night…since he still wasn’t coming home in the foreseeable future…I decided we girls needed to do something to make us feel like it was SATURDAY and not just another day of the week. So, I wore this (recognize it Mal? :))

And these (I would HIGHLY recommend you adding a pair of these Ugg bedroom slippers to your wish list this Christmas. John David’s Mom gave us all–four sisters–a pair for Christmas last year and I have hardly taken them off these chilly months)

And loaded the girls up and headed here:

Oh how the sugar and coffee brought joy and energy to my morning! Then, I did the only thing one can do with two sugar-loaded, sticky children–I put them in here:

While they were playing happily in there, I did a little of this (can you tell I’m sitting on the commode…but don’t worry the lid is down):

And my favorite verse was this: In case you couldn’t read that, it’s John 14:21 “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.”

I was enjoying my little devotion so much that the girls soaked a little longer than normal–leaving twenty tiny fingers and twenty tiny toes looking a lot like this:

So, we dried off and dressed in some comfy, cozy outfits:

Because the rest of our Saturday held this–Christmas decorations (I know it’s too early. I know you are supposed to wait until after Thanksgiving. But I know I’m about to go out of town and won’t be back until after turkey day. And then there are blogs like this, from my friend Kellie, who have made me feel like I’m behind if it’s the day after Halloween and I haven’t even taken the first step to prepare for Christmas :))!!!! Are you all impressed by the sheer organization? Kellie, I know you’re horrified and want to come over and help me make things right 🙂

Anyway, all those decorations had to be carried up from here–the scary crematorium (Our house used to burn coal before it had central heat and air, and this was the coal room. I lovingly named it the Crematorium long ago–feeling sure that people must have died in there since it is so frightful.)

And then all those decorations had to travel up these, by way of my sorry arms and legs:Jeremiah did manage to make it home sometime during that hub-bub, but he looked like this:

After spending all night in the OR fixing some crack-heads (literally) who were running from the cops and ended up having a head-on collision with them. SO all he wanted to do was get in here:

We let him. Lord knows he needed it, and we were having a pretty nice little Saturday all on our own.

    Sounds like a great saturday. I am so glad you still wear your robe. Me too!! Prego and all. And I have been begging Trent to take me to Krispy Kreme to eat a donut for a week now (it makes me feel better if someone eats one with me) and he has way too much discipline! Why is it when I start to gain weight he decides he wants to get fit!!!

    Ohhhhhh I love me some doughnuts! Guess what? We went there yesterday too. They got our order wrong, so we got a whole EXTRA dozen for FREE! Assorted flavor I might add.
    Looks like you all had a great day!
    I am impressed you got a quiet time in when you did.
    I am missing that special time like crazy. Ughhhh. I need to wake earlier, but it has been such a challenge lately.
    Show us Christmas decoration pics when you get a chance. 🙂

    Well, to be honest – the storage of my Christmas decs isn’t much better – they are in our basement garage and our “furnace” closet, so they too have to be DRUG up the stairs – I can’t wait to see your “Open House” Hint Hint!!!!
