Weekends are always so much fun! This weekend is a 4-day weekend for most people, but NOT for me :( I still have classes on Columbus Day. My weekend was fun, busy, and went by way to fast!! Did anyone else's weekend go by too fast?
Friday- I worked all day Friday and then met up with Momma for some dinner before she had to work a 12-hour shift. We were able to talk for a little bit and then she left for work and I went home to do a little homework and play with sweet Chloe. I also decided to go to Ryan's later that night.
Saturday-I worked all day again, and listened to customers talk about how Alabama's defense didn't function properly and LOST against South Carolina...who Auburn beat 2 weeks ago :) I know that is a sore subject for Alabama Crimson Tide fans, sorry! AUBURN won against Kentucky in the last few minutes by a field goal :) WAR EAGLE! Saturday after work, I went to my Sunday School teachers (husband and wife) house for "Dinner and A Movie"! We are starting a new study about we watch these movies and point out where God is in them, they talk about God, etc. We are doing this maybe once a month on a Saturday night and then Sunday's lesson is on the movie. We had a southern homemade meal and it was yummy! Fried Chicken, potato salad, green bean casserole, and homemade rolls :) Yum! We talked for awhile and were all entertained by baby "Court" who will be 2 yrs. old in January. Court is my sunday school teachers baby.He is super cute and SUPER smart! He already knows his colors and sign language and many words on flashcards! Last night he read a word for the first time!!! She showed him a flashcard that JUST said "Elephant"..NO picture on it or anything and he did his elephant noise and motion!! Too cool!
After Court went to bed we all had popcorn and candy during our movie! We watched"Signs" with Mel Gibson and Joaquinn Phoenix.
Yes, I know this isn't a Godly movie and that ALIENS ARENT REAL but we were taught that everything happens for a reason, and if you were in the situation Mel Gibson was in, how he lost his wife, almost lost his son, and had aliens invading his home and family...how far would your FAITH in God go? Would you even think that God has a purpose for everything that happens? Mel was a pastor in the movie who decided to hate God after the death of his wife. Mel quit believing in God after that and decided that prayer didn't work. All because of the question "Why do bad things happens to good people?" This is a question everyone asks at one point in time, but you have to realize that GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR EVERTHING! He plans everything for a REASON. He tests our faith along the way and we must never stray away from prayer. Prayer is a very powerful thing!!
Before the movie we decided to make the tin foil hats just like the kids wore in the movie...you know the aliens wouldn't read our minds. Please note that we don't believe in Aliens...I hope you don't either :)*Sorry about the awful quality of this pic, it was taken with my phone..and sorry Momma for not making sure my shoulders were back in this pic..I know you are going to say something about that.*
Sunday-I woke up and went to Sunday School and then I went to my grandparent's church for "Big Church". My paw-paw is a preacher at a little country church :) I decided that I was in desperate need of something to drink for the 25 minute ride...so I went to McDonald's for a Mocha Frappe' :) It was delicious! It is also Monopoly time at McD's, and I peeled off the game pieces on my frappe' and I won a free Medium Fry :) Yay! Go me!After church with my grandparents, I went to their house to eat lunch with them :) It was a good afternoon spending time with my Me-Maw and Paw-Paw :) Now I am going to do some homework and studying for a test I have this week! My aunt and cousin are coming to stay with us tonight from T-Town for a 1 night visit! I'm so excited!
I hope everyone has a FABULOUS week!!
