Justin and I went to church today. I've got a little routine that has
been working pretty well. We both go into the church and he stays with
me through the opening and the readings. We go up for the children's
sermon (I'm a little self-conscious about that but he needs to move by
that time and it's for all children). Then when all the kids leave for
Church School, I take him to the nursery. After the sermon, offering,
and special music, I go back and pick him up in time for communion.
Then it's just some quick stuff until the end. He sometimes starts
getting a little fussy during the last song, but for the most part,
this arrangement is working for us.
Right now, he's napping and
I'm supposed to be designing his birthday invitations. They're going
to be oversized boarding tickets because the theme for his first
birthday is going to be trains. However, the software is not
cooperating with me right now and it appears that the company's website
is down. I may try to struggle through if Justin stays asleep longer.
I practiced baking his birthday cake yesterday. New cake pan requiring
a different cake recipe + new oven = trial run. I'm using the train
car cake pan from Nordicware. I could not pass it up at Williams
Sonoma. There is a cake recipe on the pan, so I used that one and I
have to say that the individual cars turned out pretty good. The taste
could be a bit better, but I plan to use my double-strength vanilla for
the real deal.
Other than that, I need to plan this week's menus and go grocery shopping. Exciting stuff, I tell you.
