We had a pretty nice weekend around the Acord house!
It started with our friend Laura from the Sherman Shoutout coming over to watch Peyton so John and I could go out on a date. We went out to a wine bar here in League City called Three Oaks Wine Bar that has been open for awhile but we just haven't had the chance to check it out. The owner was our server and he helped us find a nice Merlot that we both liked and we just had a bottle of wine and some yummy appetizers and spent some nice time just talking with one another. We ended up going somewhere else for dessert and coffee and came home around 10:00 PM! It was nice late night and we are so thankful for our many friends who ask to watch Peyton for us!
Saturday morning John blessed me and a friend with watching Peyton and her son Gavin. Lindsey's husband left last week on a business trip to China for three weeks and I really wanted to get her out and have some girl time minus babies! So, John had two kids the same age and he did great and me, Lindsey and our other friend Jessica got to have brunch with each other. It was a wonderful start of my Saturday and I love spending time with those girls!
Later that afternoon Grandma Martha came to visit and we took Peyton to Kemah for ice cream. She was so excited about the boardwalk, the birds, water and boats that for the first time in forever she didn't want to eat any ice cream. Her favorite part was walking into the Christmas store and seeing all of the "ho,ho,ho's" and even better than that was the display of the missing nutcrackers! Her face beamed with excitement when she saw them and made me take each one down to talk to her. When we left I told her to say "bye bye" to them and she waved good bye and acted like she was at peace now that she knew where they all went. Silly girl!
Sunday was a very busy day with church, our small group and then we had a family celebration dinner to celebrate two great achievements in Ashley's and Shannon's life. It was a day that Peyton really would need her nap and it ended up being the day that she didn't. She did amazing for only having a 40 minute nap in the car and was hilarious at dinner. She had tons of fun and I really thought she was acting delirious from lack of sleep!
A great weekend and hopefully we will have a great Monday...off to wake up Peyton and then go and work out!
