Weekend Wrap-Up: Soccer, Tutus and More

This past weekend was busy but all filled with fun things! Friday night, Brian headed to AT&T Stadium to watch the Yellowjackets play. 

Mallory and I had planned to go but the game didn't start until after 8:00pm and I knew it would be a late night, so we opted to stay home this time! It has started to feel cooler in the evenings and Friday night felt great so we enjoyed our time outside.

Saturday morning was Mallory's second soccer game so she and Katie walked hand and hand to the soccer field.

When we got there, we found out that Mallory was playing against her friends. She was so sad she couldn't play with them but then got in the game. The girls did a lot better this week and Katie even scored a goal! After the game, Mallory got to see her friends again and she was thrilled!

After the soccer game, Mallory traded her soccer jersey and shorts for her tutu. She was excited to go to "Liesl's Turning Tutu" party. Mallory has loved the name of his party since we got the invitation and asked me to say that all the time. She would laugh so hard everytime I said Liesl's turning tutu. 

We got to The Lofland's house and Lyndsey had it decorated beautifully! 

We started singing to the birthday girl

And then she did not want us to sing anymore. Poor sweet girl!! It was a little too much

She was all better once she got some icing off her cupcake and then got open all of her great presents. The party ended with a a pinata. Will was brave and held it while the kids hit it. Mallory did pretty good and soon all the candy was out for the taking!

We had a great time celebrating Liesl! I can't believe she is already two!

Saturday night, we had our friends over for Supper Club. We had decided to start this again and we offered to host the September dinner. Our menu was simple - burgers and hot dogs. 

It was so nice just to enjoy the evening seeing all these friends who are growing up together playing in the backyard. I'm so thankful to have wonderful friends that we get to do life with.

Sunday morning, we went to church and our pastor reminded us that we, as Christians, are to daily choose who we will serve.  I'm grateful that Brian, as the leader of our home, leads us and we say together "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!"

My small group girls were thrilled that Melody had left donuts for us! It's the little things that mean the most!

Saturday afternoon, we got to relax and then we were ready for Sunday Night Football! Our SNF tradition - pizza for dinner so Dominos will see us weekly :)

Mallory was happy to sing the "I've been waiting all day for Sunday Night" theme that Carrie Underwood sings again. I was impressed she remembered from last year!

Finishing up the weekend on the couch with my favorite people makes my heart happy.

And that's a wrap!
