magic jammies

Our church is shared between two congregations. We alternate time slots every year. Last year we had the 9 am spot. This was lovely because church was out of the way early in the day, bad because I, for some reason, cannot get the four of us anywhere by 9 am on time. This year we have the 11:30 slot, very bad for naps but I do have a shot at being on time. We don't even have to rush- delightful. The boys came down in their pajamas and climbed into our bed. We spent an hour tickling and bouncing and snuggling. We then ate waffles in our slippers and took our sweet time. We were almost on time to meeting. Church is great and all but this is what Sunday morning should be like. There is something spiritual about little boys who smell like shampoo and maple syrup who fit into our arms just perfectly who want nothing more than to be together.

Such a sweet picture!

We do not share our church building with another ward and we start at 9:30am every week. I have pestered the bishop constantly about it. I don't mind the 9:30 start time, I mind that two Sundays a month, Jacob and I have to be in an early-morning meeting, so all six of us have to leave our house, completely ready for the day at 7:20am, for the 25 minute ride to the church. And we don't get home until 1:30 (well, as long as there are not meetings after--which there are three Sundays a month).

Do you feel bad enough for me? Thanks. Love the post!

I love that! We just got moved to the 9am slot, but it is way better then the 4pm slot! 11 by far is the best, yet I have not been lucky enough to get it since I lived at home!

It is the same with your father and I. We love this 11am time. Sunday morning is our favorite in the whole week. We snuggle and watch Sunday Morning and the Tabernacle Choir Broadcast. Such a lovely way to wake up in the morning.
