I took the kids to Shakespeare today for our first attempt at Christmas Card pics. I say first attempt, b/c it usually takes about 3. After we got out of the car, I remember tossing my keys to the side at some point(not sure why I did this but...)and proceeding to take 1,000,000 pictures of my kids. About 30 minutes later I thought to myself, where are my keys??
The kids and I looked and prayed for about 30 min. As you can see from the pic below, they were thrilled... Stupidly, I left my cell phone in my locked car...so I had to ask "man-reader-hoggin-the-bench-I-wanted-to-use-for-pictures" if I could borrow his cell phone. I left a voice mail for David to come and get us. Next, we explored, took more pics, had a few meltdowns, and watched for daddy. Daddy never came. Finally, I grabbed little hands and prayed again that the Lord would help us find my keys. 10 minutes later, I found them! :-)
It was nearing dark, and I had promised/bribed Nancy's Italian Ice, so we took off. I called David and asked if he knew what voice mail was??? Ya know, b/c he never came to rescue us. Apparently, it was I who made the mistake, though. I dialed the wrong number and he never had a VM from me. So, I am thankful that the Lord answered my prayer with a yes. Otherwise, we might be sleeping under the stars tonight. ;-)
