"For You Are Holy"

Chandler sang in church today for the 1st time ever! She did a great job. All the children's choirs joined the Praise Team to present a new praise song. Cheney is a pro at singing in church. The little boy in front of Cheney is Chandler's friend, Keagan. He kept turning around & looking at Cheney. I asked him about it & he said, "Mom, I wanted to tell him to stop looking at me, but I didn't want to mess up when I was singing." HAHA


Remember to pause the music on my blog.












The song is a wonderful worship song. I hope you enjoy it!!

Sick Day

A stomach virus has been making its way through our house...it is pretty short lived, but yucky just the same....Chandler had it, Mommy had it, & now Cheney had it. Wonder when it is Daddy's turn?

Queens Of The Camper


We headed back to the deer lease this weekend. It was muddy & rainy so Chandler & I pretty much hung out in the trailer. Chandler was thrilled when Caroline pulled up with her family. They immediately changed into "Princess" mode!

The Lord's Army

Chandler has been going to Mission Friends at church, but recently they started having a little choir time with the preschoolers. She was walking around singing this song tonight....it was neverending, so I decided to record it for your listening pleasure. Pause the music on my blog so you can hear!! It is very cute!!

When she is waving & blowing a kiss, that was her response to me trying to get her to end the song!!

Big Lou's Pizza

We have been searching high & low for GOOD pizza....not the kind that is made by the chain pizza places. A few weeks ago, we heard about Big Lou's Pizza. It had recently been featured on Man Vs. Food & many people told us it was very yummy. On Saturday night, we decided to try it. We took 3 suburbans of people....17 in all. It was a very fun night, but we had to wait a looooong time for our table. However, most of us didn't mind....we had good company!!

Part of our table....

Cheney & Connor spent most of the night playing Nintendo DS.

.
Chandler was an angel & had a great time--even when we had to wait!!


I am ready for our next trip to Big Lou's. Next time we might have to try the 42 inch pizza!! IT WAS HUGE!!

She has LOTS of pets. This is Katie. Katie always protects the kids when they are over. The best part about Katie--she sleeps in the bed with them. They love that!!

Future Mary Kay Saleswoman

I have started a new venture in my life. I have started selling Mary Kay. I needed to make a little money & I love the product so it makes sense to start selling it myself. On New Year's Day, I practiced on Aunt Reva & Grandma. Chandler intently listened to me & then got her own makeup.....she practiced on Pop!! Thank goodness Pop is a good sport!!

If anyone needs any Mary Kay products, let me know!!

Hello 2010!

We rang in the New Year with tradition. We went out to dinner, then back to MeMe & Pop's house for fireworks & homemade sopapillas....YUM!! We have not been able to shoot fireworks for several years because it has been too dry, but this winter we have had tons of rain so they lifted the ban. I am not sure who had more fun....the younger kids or the big boys!!
24
Daddy & Marty were shooting bottle rockets as cars drove by on the road.....this is something that was started with Uncle Jeff & Daddy. These boys were warned....their wives were NOT bailing them out of jail.

22
Cheney was so excited that he was running around like a chicken with his head cut off.....he made us laugh.

21
I got him to slow down to take a cute picture with me.

23
Cheney had a friend spend the night & then some friends from up the street came over. They had fun shooting bottle rockets together!! Chandler was afraid of the fireworks so she spent most of her time in the cabana.

25
After we finished the fireworks, we lit a bonfire. It was so hot that we didn't spend much time around it. Chandler came out for that.



We hope you & your family had a Happy New Year. We pray that your 2010 will be blessed. We love each & every one of you!!
