A BIG weekend!

Thursday was a BIG day for the Penturf family! It started out with Jim and Connie coming over around 9 in the morning to pick up SJ. She was going to spend the weekend with them while Daniel and I headed to Chattanooga for a good friend's wedding. This was our first time to leave SJ over night...and it was going to be 3 nights!! It also marked our official switch to formula! Wow! I think several people were praying for me because I did really well all weekend without my baby girl. Thanks to you if you were praying! SJ, on the other hand, had a rough first night (again, I'm so sorry Connie!) but quickly turned her attitude around on Friday and had a great rest of the weekend.

We had a fabulous time in Chattanooga and it was a HUGE blessing that we did not have SJ with us. We were able to stay late at the rehearsal dinner, sleep in, and stay late at the reception...not to mention we drove to Chattanooga and didn't have to deal with a fussy baby on the drive. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Connie for all your help. Also a big thank you to Jim for opening his home to a 6 month old and Betsy for coming to help Connie on Saturday and Sunday. We wouldn't have had such a great weekend without all 3 of you!

And can I please tell you for the millionth time that I have the BEST mother in law in the entire world. That little missy, drove SJ back on Sunday morning and rolled in around 11. Sweet Connie cooked dinner for us, did our laundry, vacuumed and cleaned our bathrooms. I mean, people just don't do that! But she does, what a huge blessing to come home to dinner and a clean house! She also stayed the night and made breakfast for us! My goodness, Connie, you are a saint! THANK YOU! (P.S. She already warned me not to blog about her coming over here but I had to disobey!).

So glad everything went so well (except for the first night)! Hope you enjoyed some of the sites of Chattanooga... wish we could have shown you around.
