Super Proud Mom!

Who's the proudest mother in the world???? MEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Oh my goodness. I love that Mason. He came in yesterday, and we looked over the elective choices for his 7th grade year. The list showed Beta Club, and it sayed beside it "invitation". So, he said, "Well, I would like to do it, but I guess not." I said, "well if you get the invitation, it would be great for you. "
So, today, we are getting out of the car in the drive way, and he says, "Hey Mom (with that quirky grin).......I got the invitation."
I had no idea...........he said...."you know, the one for Beta Club."
Oh my gosh! Whatever! I am just the proudest thing ever! Love that kid.

Hey,'re an all star!

If at first you don't succeed..........yeah right!

Well, I did it. I auditioned for a production of Steel Magnolias. It was fun, the auditions were nerve-wracking, for sure. I was nervous, but felt pretty good about it when I left.

Anyways, so they just called to tell me that I did not get the part. Bummer. Loser.

That's pretty sad.............but oh well.

I could say some positive mumbo jumbo, about atleast I tried, and I did my best, and yadda yadda. But, I won't.

I'm bummed. Seriously.

So, really, what about Brian?

We just love this show. The whole story line is great. Seriously, ABC, I know you must be reading my blog.....don't let this one get away.
So, what about Brian? What about this cool, tight knit group of friends? Where are they? Where are they in our life? Scott and I have been really soul searching this one. Or (Darrin and Jacque) should I say, Friend Shopping!
No doubt, wondering......has the busy-ness of our lives allowed us to not take time to enjoy a few friends who are there no matter what? Just because. No event, no gathering, no holiday.........just a Happy Tuesday here and there.........just dropping in to hang out for a while.
Sure, if crisis comes...........we have friends. No doubt. When we are rejoicing, our friends rejoice, too. When we have struggles, we have tons of friends to lean on.
But, what about the everyday. What about just for no reason. What about just not wondering when we will get together, but just wondering which house! What about knowing that on any given day, you have a few people who are always on your side. Even if you disagree, or your opinion is not liked.
Do we take the time to be like "back in the old days" when people sat on the porch and just chatted with their friends, or are we so busy that at the end of the day............ so, seriously, what about Brian???

Who'da thunk it!

Wow, 10 years is seriously a long time! 10 years from 4/16.........4/16/97 Scott asked me out........yes on my birthday. I was just 22. I no doubt was hot for him, and would have loved to go out, but not at all thought he would ever ask me out. He was way out of my league.

But, he did. And here we are, still dating! We went out on a date, no kids, no nothing for my bday, and to celebrate our 10 years! How fun! I love him. I love us! I love me because of him!
He's the best ever...........and he's still way hot!

A friendly reminder

Sometimes, I need a swift kick.

Our church let the "special friends" do the entire service. Marissa (down's syndrome) had asked Scott if he would sing with her. She just loves him, and he loves her too! It was wonderful, and she did a great job!

As I watched all of these, I just wondered why does it take this service to always give me the kick that I need at the moment. How lazy am i? Sometimes I just don't wanna go. Sometimes I just don't want to stand up during the song service.

These friends would just love to stand up period.........and they sing their heart out for Jesus.

Wow, I love my boys, and I love sitting in church with them. I love being reminded that God gave them to me, to love and to take care of.......and to teach what it means to be on fire for Jesus. Wow, God, please keep reminding me.

A Grill Only a Mother Can Love!

Oh, my! Love these teeth! Mason's are just as bad. Not only is there NO room for others, but when will they ever grow? And, when will Chapman's "extra tooth" fall out?

My oh, my! I love them just the same.
