Sunday, Sunday

So Sundays are a little different with kids. Sundays are nowhere near a "day of rest" like they should be! Taking three kids, three and under, for three hours of church is . . . not restful.

Then after church it's not like Ben and I can come home, sit on the couch and read the scriptures, conference talks, etc. together. It just doesn't happen with our little ones. So to ease our Sunday Afternoon Boredom I thought (taken from my friend Rebecca) it would be fun to make cookies together and then deliever them to a family in our ward. Well, neither the making nor the delivering turned out all that fun (at least eating the dough was fun).


Miles had trouble with listening and was banished from the kitchen for a few minutes at one point. We ended up not having enough molasses and so a friend came over to give us some - Ben poured in the exact amount we needed for the cookies. Ben went to give the molasses jar back to our friend and told Miles not to pour it in the bowl until he came back to the kitchen. Well. . . when Ben got into the kitchen he discovered that Miles had in fact poured the molasses, spilling probably the exact amount we had borrowed from our friend all over the counter! Sheesh. Another banishment (but it was done quite lovingly as poor Miles was doing all he could to hold back his tears).



















So the whole cooking thing wasn't all that fun. Well for me I guess. Jonas had a great time playing with the flour. And Emmy enjoyed watching all the madness I guess.


Then after dinner we went to deliver the cookies and the entire time (20 minutes?) in the car Emmy was screaming. So not fun.
So, as you can tell from Ben's picture, this Sunday made us (the parents) a little more frazzled than rested. . .

I feel the same way about Sunday. Matt starts meetings at 6:30am and then it doesn't seem to slow down until about 8:30pm. I am usually more tired rather then rested when Sunday is over.
