II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

What a fun weekend!

We had a great weekend! Matt's mom and Grandma came to visit us on Saturday afternoon. After we had a nice lunch, we played Phase 10 (while Grant napped). Then we went to the mall to let the kids burn off some energy at the play area while we waited on an available table at the Olive Garden. (We had an hour and a half wait time!) Even though we ate really late and it was an hour past Grant's bedtime (8:30 pm) the kids were very well behaved at the restaurant and Grant actually stayed in his high chair the entire time without any crying. (For those who are or have been parents of a one or two year old...you know what an achievement that is!) Anyhow, after that, we came home and went to bed. This morning I had nursery duty at church, so we had to leave a little early but we were all ready on time (another achievement around our house! ha ha) After church, we stopped by Sonic and picked up burgers and then came home and I made french fries. After we ate, it was time for Nana and Mamaw to go back home. We said our goodbyes (we HATED to let them leave) and then we all settled in for a nice Sunday afternoon nap. I got up before everyone else and did my work from Friday that I had never gotten around to yet and then Mom and Dad brought over pizza for dinner. My sister and two nephew's came to visit this weekend also, so they came over and we ate and played Taboo and watched Extreme Makeover Home Edition. My nephew, Cody, seems to be the "life of the party" around my house...both the kids adore him. Grant has nick-named him "Coco" and it's so cute...that we all tend to call him that now! (sorry Cody!) Brooklyn went home with them to spend the night and we just got Grant down for the night. Matt's in the other room watching T.V. while I write this...but I should probably be going now so we can enjoy some quiet time all alone.
Hope you all had a great weekend too and have made your Valentine plans! It's only 2 days away!!! Don't let the day go by without letting your family know how much you love them! Cars, houses, money, clothes...those are just things...but family and friends...now that's something to LOVE!!!
