We had a major first this weekend. We left Aiden and Evan for the first time (not counting grandparents and nurses). Since Aiden and Evan have been home, David and I have been rotating attending church. It is still not recommended to take the boys to such a public place. So, I'll go one week, David the next, and so on. Then, whoever went to church will preach to the other over lunch (just kidding). Well, this weekend, a couple from our Sunday School Class (Mark and Gayle) offered to keep the boys while we attended church together. We had no hesitations at all. The 11:00 AM hour is actually one of the best hours for the boys. They are happy, full, and usually tired. And, they did wonderful for their babysitters! We were so glad. I don't think David and I ever really worried about them. We knew they were in good hands. It was wonderful to be able to go to church together! The boys' baptism is scheduled for March 28 at 11:00 AM. After that, I believe we will start taking the boys to church (depending on how well they do). It will be July before we are allowed to put them in nursery care.
Also, please keep everyone in SW Oklahoma in your prayers. They have been without electricity since last week with no word on when it will return. From the way my family talks, it is very bad. There is a lot of damage to the trees from the ice.
Here are a few pictures from Sunday. I don't know what Gayle and Mark did, but the boys were pooped!
