02.01.15 Family Sunday

Sunday, February 1, 2015 – Our Sunday was full of family!  Sunday morning we worshiped with Chip, Kim and Madisyn.  Chip is a “Connect Group” leader.  Their connect groups are small groups based around a common interest of that group.  Chip’s is Softball.  The picture below is of all the Connect Group leaders in front of the church.   The church moved into it’s new building (the old Schwegmann’s building) in Hammond.  It is huge and very nicely done.

a1On Saturday Chip’s church created a video of three of their family members (Chip was one of them) sharing their testimonies of turning to God from their addictions, and how their lives have been changed forever. They showed the video during Sunday morning worship.  I’m so proud of Chip being willing to share his darkest times so that others can see the amazing work God has done in his life.  The video was great and if I can get a copy of it, I will share with ya’ll.

Chip treated us all to lunch at Cracker Barrel.  Eating out with two little ones under two years old and a five year old is quite eventful.  It sure makes Roy and I eating out alone seem quite boring!  We loved it!

a2They all followed us to Amite where we showed them the progress we made on the house and in clearing out all the brush and trees.  Here’s some pics of the little ones and big ones checking it all out!

Braxton and Bentley are very active little guys now.  After hours of play and activity we put on the TV “Bubble Guppies”.  This is the stillest you will ever see these little ones.  They and Madisyn made themselves comfortable on the floor and for 30 minutes there was calmness and quiet in the Chauvin household!  As soon as it went off they were ready for a nap and then more fun!

a9We all watched some of the Super Bowl together which was eventful with three little ones playing around.  It rained for most of the day so we spent a lot of time inside.  They left in time to get Madisyn home for bedtime so she’d get a good night sleep and be ready for school tomorrow.

It was so wonderful to have this time today to spend with all of them.  We hope to leave here by early to mid March so time for this is growing short.  I’m certain we’re off to a good start making the most of this time.

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
