Our Sunday Funday :0)

So this term/hashtag “Sunday Funday” has been relatively recent I guess… either that or I’m oblivious, so it’s totally possible that it has been thrown around for the last decade or two and I didn’t realize it haha… but it always makes me a little sad to see it, because generally it is people out doing something recreational and “fun” on Sunday instead of spending it worshipping our Creator. There is nothing more that I would rather do on Sunday than worship God, because He has done so much for us. I just can’t imagine skipping out on worship to go fishing (not that I fish) or to a game or concert to have “fun” when there is an opportunity for me to praise God for the sacrifice He made for us, for how He Shepherds and watches over us.
Now that I’ve had two boys of my own, I just can’t even understand how our Father gave up His Son for our sins, to be brutally murdered and treated so maliciously. I was telling Jacob this week that one day when I was rocking Jude for nap and looking at his sweet sleeping face, it occurred to me that I couldn’t fathom giving him up to death for someone else, and standing nearby watching it happen. Mary was such a strong woman and not faint of heart.
So it occurred to me this past Sunday that I would snap a few pics of our “Sunday Funday” and maybe put a different spin on the phrase, because there is nothing more that I want to do than worship my glorious Father in Heaven and share that time with my sweet family. And yes, Sundays are so incredibly hard with babies/crazy toddlers and naps, but they are enjoyable to me. It is fun to be with my brothers and sisters in Christ, and it is fun to sing praises to our awesome God and learn more from His word.
We always start our mornings getting ready for church, so I snapped a few pictures of me and my littlest man before we left. Love his little man shirt and shoes. You can just imagine the pictures of worship because I didn’t take any of those today, hah! 😉
So bashful 😉

After services, we usually come home and eat but sometimes go out. Today it was raining because of the hurricane that came in so we just came home and ate leftover Mexican food. Which I don’t know about you, but a rainy day plus Mexican food is my love language.

I put Jude down for a nap, and the nice thing about Sundays is that Jacob puts Jackson down for a nap, so this momma jumped in bed with a cookie from my sweet friend, Miranda, and my iPad to read a little!

Opened the curtains and blinds so I could watch the rain.
My trusty sidekick, whenever there is food around, she’s always close by. 🙂
My other sidekick. He came to give his momma some snuggles before his nap.
Snuggling on the floor, watching a show after his nap.
My shadow, always sticks close to her momma. Thinks she’s the size of a chihuahua.
So anyway, this isn’t anything groundbreaking, just a sweet day of worship and snuggles with my family. I am so thankful for the life I have and the opportunities we have to worship our Lord so freely. Hope you take advantage of them too! 🙂

Catching Up With the Campbells!

Just thought I would do a quick post about what has been going on with us lately. We have a lot of family that live out of state and we don’t get to see them very often, so I thought this might be a nice way of just giving them a peak into our lives!

One BIG thing that has happened lately is that Jackson is in a BIG BOY BED! Eek! I can’t believe it!! He’s doing great with it though, we had a few hard nights but he does pretty well most nights. I need to take more pictures of his room with his new bedding. These pictures were from right after we put the bed together.

Jackson’s newest obsession lately is “pumping” things… He always has had a fixation with his cars having flat tires and needing to tow them with his hot wheels toy truck. Well when Jacob had to pump up the tires on the Bob stroller this weekend he was enamored with the bicycle pump for the rest of the day. He pumped up the wagon wheel, his monster truck, Blaze truck, his car transporter and some other cars that he had. It was pretty cute. 
Jude is grabbing at things and chatting up a storm! He loves watching his big brother be crazy and is interested in everything he does! He is still my little cat napper, except for one long nap he takes in the middle of the day, and he is doing well at night most nights since we have gotten past the 4 month sleep regression! He is working hard on his baby push ups, and rolls over all the time now. He also has found his little feet lately and likes sucking on them hehe.
We celebrated my sister’s 27th birthday a couple of weekends ago with my family at Jimmy Changas. YUM. Jackson was particularly fond of the ice cream.

I was pretty excited about this new development… It had been about two and a half years since I had gotten a new phone and trust me… it was much needed. My poor iPhone 5 had been swimming in my friend’s pool, dropped in water, drooled on by my baby and chewed on by Jackson when he was younger, and pretty much was freaking out every time I went outside because of the humidity. Who knows how many times it had been dropped… my favorite dropping memory was when it slid through the seats at a Rockets game and fell a good 40-50 feet under the bleachers. Jacob reminded me of that one the other day haha… Honestly I was impressed it made it as long as it had.

I was also excited about this little buy at Target.. $4.98 for these babies… can’t beat that!

Jacey Lynn is still vying for any kind of attention she can possibly get from anybody… I’m pretty sure that if the UPS guy stayed longer than a minute dropping off my Amazon packages she would hit him up for a scratch on the head too. She loves the boys though and love playing with her ball in the yard still. Sometimes when I run at night I let her out in the front when I go get the mail and she goes nuts running around everywhere hehe. She turned five this week so we gave her some treats and a little toy that Jackson picked out for her when we were at Target.

She likes the baby’s hoppy pillow.

Most of our days are filled with errands, church and playing outside. We like to go to the neighborhood park and Stevenson park in Friendswood. Jackson loves to slide and swing, and even little Jude got to swing this past weekend!

He had just woken up hehe, he had a few smiles in the swing!

We also went to the zoo this past week with friends, Jude’s first time! We had a great visit! We didn’t stay too long though just because Jude was so exhausted by lunch time! He needs his naps for sure during the day and doesn’t take very long ones while we are out.

Serious Jude Man. :0)

Jacob is still enjoying his job at ENSCO, and he brought home this little onesie for Jude to wear!

No huge travel plans coming up any time soon aside from running over to Vidor to see my fam bam, but we do have plans on taking a cruise with my family next summer though! Really excited about that! So now you are caught up with our lives these days haha!
