The weekend started early for Hubby & I as we took off work on Friday & traveled with my parents to Jefferson City, MO (our state capital) to see my little-brother be sworn in as a big-time lawyer! We left Elyse with my in-laws--THANK GOODNESS!--and drove up for the quick ceremony. The ceremony WAS quick, the waiting beforehand was not...but I'm super glad we made the trip to support my brother in his new career.

Friday evening our family business was recognized at the local high school football game as being co-sponsors of a brand new scoreboard at the football field. In conjunction with that we also threw out several t-shirts to the crowd...which wasn't many since the weather was quite nasty! We had actually left Elyse with my in-laws for the night since we were going to be out past her bedtime...but we still headed home fairly early and we were in bed before 10! ha! We're such an old married couple!
Saturday morning I had to work and Hubby went to pick up Elyse. After lunch she took her afternoon nap and then we headed down to Hubby's sister & BIL's house for our nephews' joint birthday party. They are 4 & soon to be 7...I can't hardly believe it!

Next up for the evening was actual small group. Normally our group can take a topic & drag it out for almost an hour & a half...thankfully, the study we're doing right now lends itself to shorter meetings which is honestly a good thing for us. Elyse is READY for bed by the time we leave so shorter small group gatherings are certainly not a bad thing at this point in our lives!
It seems like it's already been a busy week with so much going on...but tomorrow I'm home with my baby girl & besides a trip to Walmart, we've got NO plans! Which is probably a good thing since I think we've got some more teeth coming through....
