The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

Give it your all!

Posted under Admit One, LOL, The Unexpected, We Like Food! - Sep 8th, 09 - 2 Comments

“Going all out” and “Giving it your all” are exhausting mottoes I like to live by…sometimes. I was reminded of this recently. I really don’t know how Chick-fil-A stays in business. The Lord must be blessing them for all of the food that they seem to always be giving away. Yesterday, Chick-fil-A was dishing out […]

The following video is funny, yet true. When we saw Tim Hawkins in concert, he said that he wrote this song in anger…what do you think? Tim Hawkins-The Government Can When my kids saw”Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”(years ago) one of them said that the candy man reminded them of Paige’s oncologist. I remember […]

Dear Cousins/Nice Nieces

Posted under LOL, Sew What?, The Unexpected - Aug 21st, 09 - 3 Comments

I have been watching my nieces this week. Their moms are teachers, and have started back to school. We have all had a great time. One of my highlights was making matching denim skirts for each girl (ten total) by recycling pairs of jeans. I am thankful that my children have sweet cousins to play […]

Cowboys

Okay, I grew up with a dad who watched the cowboys on television. He watched the Dallas Cowboys, and he also watched westerns with cowboys like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and…particularly John Wayne. However, my dad was the sweetest man in the world. Of course, he was a tough guy, but not a rough guy…very […]

My Son Has Skills!

The following is a conversation that my 6-year-old child (talented son) had with me (amazed mom) this morning: Talented Son: “Mom, do you know what I am really good at?” Amazed Mom: (turned to face son) “What?” Talented Son: “Well, I am really good at picking things up with my feet,” (He gave an honest […]

Boys Crying “Wolf”!

The other day, my six-year-old son purposely tried to scare me. He let a red Skittle melt on his finger, and came running to me like he hurt himself. I fell for it. He quickly told me he was kidding. However, the boys have started “playing wolf”, just to see my face! Now, I am […]

Boys Are Different…

Boys are different… I remember talking with a friend who had boys, when I had my first son, and telling her, “So far so good. I don’t seem to see too many differences between them.” Then at about nine or ten months, I called her and said, “I am starting to see their differences. He […]

My Dad Makes Me Laugh!

Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday! In honor of this wonderful man and awesome dad, I have to blog about a funny story that happened awhile back. The story I’m about to tell you has made me laugh so much over the years (and anyone who knows me, knows that I love to laugh). Okay, let’s […]

Fruity People and Fruity Fun!

Posted under LOL, My Kids Make Me Smile, The Unexpected - Apr 27th, 09 - 2 Comments

Today, I went to the store with my six-year-old. It was pouring down rain when we got out of our suburban, so naturally we got wet soaked! I was standing in the fruit section getting apples, when a nearby fruit lady asked me, “Is it raining outside?” Everything inside of me wanted to scream: “Uh…DUH!”, […]

CC…the dog catcher!

Today we went to Grandma’s house (about 45 minutes from our house). While we were on the road,  who do you think we saw?…two lost labs! Well, I looked over at BC and said, “Are those our dogs?” (meaning his cousin’s), and everyone agreed that they were. BC quickly called his cousin, and sure enough…they […]
