Moments with daddy

Today was a "holiday" for Jon. I say "holiday" because that is how it is labeled on the school calendar but it's really a furlough day. One of 6 teachers have gotten this year. But and how ever I did not post today to talk about the state's failed budgeting problems, I'll leave that for another day! Whether it is a paid "holiday" or not we enjoyed having Jon home with us this morning. It is a rare treat around our house to be at home and all together during the morning hours. Jon's either at work, we are at church or we are off somewhere visiting someone so, we enjoyed it!

I was back in our bathroom cleaning it and noticed that I was missing one little voice so I went in search of it and this is what I found:

And of course monkey see, monkey do so:

And when I came back in the kitchen to throw some things away I saw this:

James was really attached to his daddy this morning so he went with Jon to run a few errands while us girls stayed behind to have a tea party (or a coffee party according to the Princess!).

After the kids went down for naps Jon headed out for Orlando, FL for a quick preaching trip. He got my bro-in-law to fill in for him in the morning at Tired Creek so he and my sista and their crew will be here shortly to kick off our week long (hopefully longer) flow of company! Tomorrow, Sydney Jo Sanders will be coming for a few days (YAY!!) and on Monday, Nenie, SuSu, Auntie Em, Harrison, Bella and JW will be arriving to spend a few days. I say hopefully longer because we are trying to talk Nenie into staying for at least a week if not more! Sooooo, the blog will more than likely get put on the back burner for a while!

Again...I don't LIKE Sydney Jo. NOT FAIR!
Coffee party looked like a huge success. Talk about me when you can work it in to the conversation casually.

I love how Audrey "dresses up" for her social functions. A true DIVA. How fun to have "Daddy" home at an unsual time for you all. 'manda, the little "shots" of your home that I see in this blog, especially, I am LOVING the countertops. Beautiful. And, enjoy your respite. Sounds like you'll be making tracks but enjoying every minute when your family arrives. Good times. For all.
