#funfriday / that night we sat for 2 hours to see the lights…and we’re still sitting

the daily Starr fun friday

Some Fridays are fun.

Some are not.

This is the current situation:

We’ve been sitting for a few hours now – enough time to watch the entire Polar Express movie – and we’ve moved all of 1.5 miles.

Whew.

Christmastown USA (McAdenville) is in view. And in 4 minutes the lights are scheduled to turn off. I can’t even make this stuff up.

The kids don’t know where we are going. One asked if we were going to the beach. HA!

I’m really not sure what plan B will be.

And sometimes #funfriday truly needs a plan B!

Maybe we’ll ride through a neighborhood on the way home and they’ll never know the difference. Maybe we’ll get some ice cream.

At least we can say we wore our Christmas PJs, watched Christmas movies in the car – and bonded while sitting in a confined space with a 16 month old!!!

Sometimes family fun doesn’t go as planned! Believe me – it will happen!! Don’t stress too much. Don’t let it ruin the fun. Make do with what you have and figure out a plan B 🙂

PS – I want to address something I noticed on Facebook a bit ago (I’ve had time to scroll while sitting here tonight haha). A friend referenced the topic of my blog post last night about going to church on Christmas Sunday and gave reasons why people shouldn’t publicly shame others for their convictions – along with a lot of others things she felt strongly on about corporate worship. Our views are certainly different, but I respect her opinion as I expect her to respect my own.

I would like to clarify that I’m not about publicly shaming anyone. That was certainly not my intention. Someone pointed out in the comments on her Facebook post a fantastic point. This is more about a bigger issue of Christians that use any excuse possible to not go to church. I couldn’t agree more.

If you personally don’t feel any conviction about not going to church – then, my friend – that is between you and the good Lord. As are many other things in life. I’ll just leave with that.
