Weekend Happenings

Friday we spent our evening listening to our youth band play. Most Friday evenings in the summer Chick-fil-a has live music...and our youth band was asked to play! They did such a good job and it was fun to see them rockin' it out. 

Jaxen had fun playing with the toys they had setup for the kids!

Saturday was a day spent getting ready for a block party our church was hosting to celebrate the end of summer. It was an idea Nik had months ago and spent all summer coordinating and working on. It was a great success!

We had a VW car show, face painting, balloon animals, cotton candy, sno-cones, popcorn, free food, an exotic petting zoo, inflatables, live music, and lots of people and fun!!!!

Despite the heat, we had a great time! 

Sunday was another big day for us....

Months ago Nik and I felt God calling us to start a new adult Sunday School class. We talked and prayed about it and decided that we were going to do it, but it could not happen until the summer was over. Well, we had the 'End of Summer Bash' so there you go!

So Sunday we launched our new adult Sunday School class. I think it went over very well. We had 8 people and enjoyed looking at and discussing God's Word. 

For our class, I baked a Toasted Coconut Pound Cake. It was really good! And I had to take a picture of it because it turned out so pretty!

Sunday evening, when coming home from church Jaxen found my sunglasses. He was playing with them and when we went to pull him out of his car seat, Nik found him like this:

Wearing my sunglasses the exact way Nik wears his! I had to take a picture of them two!

Isn't that funny?! It is crazy how much Jaxen is learning, just by watching us!

Here is another example -

Jaxen put on Nik's shoes!

Last night Nik took a group from our church to a baseball game. It was another late night for him, but they had fun.

So that was basically our weekend. We are exhausted! Tonight we have been hanging out at the house relaxing and playing with Jaxen. I just have to say that there is no sweeter sound than your little one laughing! That is pretty much what we have been doing tonight - making Jaxen laugh!

  1. Wow! Jaxen looks TOTALLY different than he did a few months ago when I saw him. Ok, it was a whole season ago! But he LOOKS LIKE A TODDLER NOW!!!! I can't wait to see you guys! Love you. Hope your week turns out very POSITIVE. I am sure it will.
