A rare event..

So Mike and I finally had a date night last night. Why is this a rare event you ask? That would be because our third child was born almost 5 months ago, and I believe our last date was before that!!! So I just had to get a picture of the rare event. The picture is located to the right if you have not already figured that out. It was nice to get out of the house, but the evening passed all to quickly. I guess that will be good enough for five more months. hahaha.

New Invention

Ok, I need a new invention. You know those cars that have that new "Microsoft Sync.." stuff in them? The one where you all you have to say is "call..home", and it dials it for you? Well I need a version that is nothing but a dictionary. Abigail is at the age where anytime you use a new word she wants to know the meaning of that word. This is great stuff..but how do you define the words "free country" to a 7 year old? The problem is, if you sit and think about it we all use words that we understand, but try to define them. For example the word "experience". We know what it means, but try to define it on the spot when a 7 year old asks "mom what does experience mean?" So, I am going to invent the dictionary version..."Dictionary define the word IT..." I think I am going to be rich....hahahaha.

It's over.....sigh











We came, we played, we won, and now it is over. I found out a few things about Abigail and me. First, Abigail is pretty good at third base. If you tell her to do something...she does it! Secondly, I am a pretty competitive person. Yes, I have mentioned this before, but I am just shocked by the whole thing. Of course, Mike would say he has known all along (poor guy). Last but not least...I can be a little "redneck" at times. Ya know?? Oh well, we finished our season at the beginning of June, and placed third out of seven teams. That was a little disappointing because we placed first in our opening tournament. That is ok, there is always next year. The year may be over, but the memories will last forever. Enjoy...

One down....two to go

A few weeks ago Elijah became a Christian! He is five years old. It was so sweet to hear him ask Jesus to come into his heart. He was baptized yesterday. He said "momma it felt so good to be baptized." Of course I was under the impression that he was speaking spiritually and all. Nope, he said "the water felt so good." Oh well he is only 5 years old. Abigail said she is not ready yet. That is fine. She has to make the decision for herself. Isabella is still working on getting cereal down her throat instead of out her mouth. She might take a while. hahahaha. she is getting cuter by the day. I will try and post new pics of her soon. hope you enjoy the video..
video by the way..elijah was asked if he wanted his daddy to be the one to do it..and he said "nope..i want bro. joe." so there ya go.

Please do not Fear...We are still here











To all of my faithful readers (all of about 3?? hahaha) We are still here. We have been very busy. This week was our annual vacation bible school. I have told some of you that this is the biggest outreach our church is involved with. We had around 300 people a day involved with VBS. It breaks down to be around 200 students and 100 teachers and volunteers. Our church is filled with school teachers. This allows us to hold our VBS during the morning hours. We start at 8:30 and finish around 11:30. I think that is the reason we have such a huge turn out...ya know free child care. hahahaha. This year I was the secretary. After this week, I have a new respect for secretaries. It was one crazy day after another. In the end, this was a life changing week for some of our students. Decisions were made, and the angels rejoiced!!! The theme this year was Outrigger Island: Living God's Unshakable Truth. So many of the rooms were decorated in a Hawaiian theme. I am including some pics of decorated rooms, and students having fun. Enjoy!!!
