A colorful Sunday

When we go on Sunday walks we always take a map.  Usually it is a big & colorful map so we will not get lost.  Who doesn't bring the Candy Land board on their walks?


Smiley let's us know we are almost @ the end.  Yes he is on the map.


We made it to the Candy Land castle.  
No not really but doesn't this look like an ice cream parlor house...it brings warm & fuzzy feelings as I refer back to childhood memories of dreaming what kind characters lived inside...kind of like Disneyland.  It's pink.


Of course I was crowned Queen Frostine because I always win in my tale.  Wait isn't that the lamp shade I finally finished this weekend.  YEAH, one more thing mark off to finish the girl's room.  I kind of like it.



Here's the rest of the Sunday story.....









HIGHLIGHTS:

Burdens were lifted for a bit as I basked in the uplifting words @ church.
The girls gave a talk & scripture in church.  Made me all happy inside.
Lots of blue teeth from the push up pops Dad rewarded the girls with.
Crock Pot dinner.
Long Sunday nap.
Frolicking outside.
Sunday walk.
Desert.

Sometimes I really like Sundays & sometimes I don't but today I did.

Speaking of Candyland, I wish we had tickets to the below adorable party found here via Party Perfect.

I am loving the map thing. Vance is way into maps these days too. He carries around the car seat manual, calling it his "map". He is always there to tell me where we are going next. I was really hoping it would be a Candyland walk but I don't think I'm going to be able to make it down to AZ...I'm crying right now. Let's pray for a miracle.

One day, if God ever graces our little family with a baby girl, I'm pretty sure she'll need a similar lampshade in her room. :)
