We like (most) Sundays

I took this picture on Sunday night, right before we were settling down for a family movie.
Sundays are usually crazy for us.
Last year church was at 9, and in some aspects that was great.
We were able to go and be home for lunch and naps...
But getting a 2 year old and one year old up, and bathed and fed and dressed was also a challenge.
Now church is at 11, and we enjoy this time.

Last Sunday was special though.
Not only did Tommy and I speak in Sacrament, but Weston also started nursery.
Those of you with kids know how BIG this is.
Our talks went extremely well, considering each of us had to take turns with the kids alone for about 20 minutes each. That doesn't sound like much, but it's stressful.
As soon as sacrament was over, we took both boys to class and RAN-literally.
Weston technically shouldn't go to nursery for a few more weeks, but our ward is great and welcomed him early.
Sunday was the first time in 3 YEARS that Tommy and I have been to sunday school together(without a kid or 2).
Our regular routine was to either take turns with kids between callings and teaching, or trading weekly with the kid(s).
I can't tell you how nice it was to go and sit and listen and be together with Tommy.
We were so relaxed and unstressed.
Now instead of chasing/wrestling kids all 3 hours, we just have to make it through the first hour.
How nice :)
