Your kids get all pumped when dad announces, "It's time to practice some shootin!" (in the front yard next to the deer feeder that is a constant ornament in our driveway) and they are proud to be waving their guns in broad daylight! ??
You drive your family (7 hours) home from summer vacation in MID-JULY with no air-conditioning and then you take pictures of your child's suffering (and post it)! ??
...and the Dr. who finally cuts it out tries to eat it! ??
You have a fly this big on the lamp next to you, (not to mention all the dust to go with it), and you can't smash him with the fly-swatter because you tell your husband, "He's been buzzing around here for so long now, he feels like part of the family!" ??
You pretend to be taking your sweet daughters' pictures eating Smores' while on vacation, only to really be getting a shot of the gal in the pink bikini leaning over the fire pit, because your husband thinks she is "smokin' hot"! ??
I, personally, was actually waiting for Will Smith to fly out of them in some sort of "Men In Black #3" Space Contraption.... or better yet.........Jesus to descend down and lovingly scoop us all up!
Will you be ready when He does??
" For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with a voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Therefore comfort one another with these words." I Thessalonians 4:16-18

Upon entering the middle school Library, (did I mention the Cheerleader Sponsor is the SCHOOL LIBRARIAN)? (insert look of confusion here).... I catch the tail end of, "Ladies! Ladies! We do have payment plans, please, don't worry, we'll work something out!"
NOPE! Not so "lucky".....
Feel free to call me "MADAME VICE-PRESIDENT"..........

Now Seriously.....since the new American "Motto" is "Change...blahdy-blahdy blah blah..." Why can't we CHANGE Spring Break to TWO weeks?? This week has flown right past us! It has been fun and I won't lie, I just might be ready for some quiet around here, but I'm not ready for those early alarm clocks and hour after hour of homework.... just yet! But...it's a comin' and SOON!
I had promised the girls a "mani/pedi day" before we went back to school and today seemed just as good a day as any to make the trip. A couple of friends of ours are in a wedding tomorrow and we thought we'd invite them to partake in our "foot fun frenzy". They joined us and we enjoyed it! Their mom had wanted them to get their hair done today as well for their weekend wedding festivities and it was at that point that they (for the 1st time) met TRUDY! Trudy is my "alter ego" who would love to own her own beauty shop if she only had her license!?? HA! So they took me up on my offer to "wash, blow, and set" them all for their big Friday Night Rehearsal ! Trudy's rate of "FREE" was an offer she couldn't refuse! It was fun..they all had their own "Beauty Shop Names"....one was "Trixie", the other "Dixie" and Hallie my helper was "Laverne". (Riley decided to just keep "Riley"). The end result was 3 gorgeous gals ready for a night out on the town! I didn't get "mama" in the picture, but I sure do hope her "beehive" holds! (just jokin!)
Tonight is "Girls Only Slumber Party Friday" for us, with Dad out of the house, who knows what us girls will find to do!! I'm dreaming of some Panda Express, Hot Fudge Sundaes, and a good chic-flick!
Happy Weekend and HAPPY SPRING! It's finally here!
Spring Break Day #7 Score: Truly Trudy Spectacular!
ps...Please still be in prayer for Cason Harvey. Mom was discharged today and Cason was not. He is expected to be in NICU for at least 7 more days! We pray for a quick recovery on those precious baby lungs so that he can be in his mom & dad's arms where he belongs!

We went up in the attic and drug down all the Easter decorations this morning. I love Eastertime! The adorable bunnies, the colorful Easter eggs, the yummy chocolate eggs, the beautiful Springtime weather, ahhhh....the reason we celebrate Easter! What an amazing story that I love! How Jesus loved us so much that He would die for us and then was able to RISE again! What a story of unconditional love! We are so thankful!
On to Spring Break Day #6......oops! I got a bit off track....
Spring Break Day #6 Score: Blessed!
.....please continue to pray for sweet baby Cason Harvey as well as his mom and dad. Cason remains in NICU with breathing difficulties. We pray for God's healing hand to be placed on this new life so that he may be home soon with his family!
