Last Weekend we left super early to make the trek to the Temple. It is about a 2 hour drive without traffic We got super lucky and didn't hit any! We left at 5;45 Chicago Time and made it for the 8:00 session.

The missionaries came over for dinner tonight, I was trying all week to figure out a good meal to fix them without actually going to the store.
(I try really hard to only go every two weeks, this has been an amazing strategy to help me stay in my budget, and we are nearing the end of our two weeks, so of course the pantry is bare).
I honeslty could not make any of the 3 decent meals I came up with without going to the store. And then I found my milk was going bad, any body have a good recipe that takes a lot of milk, I have almost a gallon of milk that will be bad if not used immedietly. So point is, going to the store today was required.
Spencer and I went to the store, and this was the big trip of the month, we were out of everything.
1st blessing- Spencer did not cry once, did not climb out of the stroller once, and made it through the entire grocery line happy (of course fruit snacks and grapes were being bribed), but still the last time we went he cried at least half of time, so huge improvement.
2nd blessing my total grocery bill came to $40.00 less than I expected it to. I mean I even bought diapers and everything. The immediate thought came to my mind, you are feeding the missionaries tonight, chalk it up as a blessing for feeding the Lord's annointed.
Sometimes I have a hard time seeing the hand of the Lord work in my life. So these moments when I can feel the spirit and see something specific I feel blessed. So weather everything was just on sale or maybe I really didn't buy as much as I thought, I think I will give the credit where its due and say a thank you to my Heavenly Father.
Moral of the story: Feed the missionaries and your grocery budget will be less, or you will be blessed in mysterious ways :).
How did the Lord work in your life today?

So Notre Dame has two religions Catholicism adn Football. These games are insane. On Saturday we did football all day long. First we got up early and went to the Football Collage Hall of Fame. Which was an awesome museum.
Naomi's parents and sister Katie came on Thursday to spend labor day weekend with us and go to the first Notre Dame Game. Naomi and Spencer picked them up from the airport and then we spent the day in Chicago.
It rained for four days straight here in South Bend, so we had to come up with some fun activities. First we built a fort with four chairs and a blanket. Which Spencer really liked. However he found another use for it as well. I was sitting under the fort when I saw his little legs climb up onto the bench and go head first into the blanket onto my lap. Boy did the fort just become so much more exciting. He continued to do this about 10 more times.
