Sunday Night Brain Dump

  • I went out to the grocery store tonight with Rylee – made a quick stop at Starbucks first and then headed over to Fresh Market. I was dressed in Sunday afternoon nap attire and had crazy afro nap hair and then Rylee spit up all over me right before we walked into the store. Of course, I walked right by this little skinny 20 something year old with her skinny jeans, ah-may-zing boots and Louis Vuitton handbag. Her hair was perfect and I just wanted to go crawl in a hole somewhere. 🙂
  • I need some girl time
  • I love my church. It was a great day today – a great crowd, good worship and an awesome word from dad.
  • We went to the fair again last night. It was cooooold.
  • GAFA danced at the Latino festival yesterday. The group before us was a really bad religious drama that included the devil (in a red cape, devil horns, a pitch fork and bad stage makeup), a hooker, drug dealer, a pimp and Jesus (with flowing robe, bad brown wig and fake beard). The drug dealer actually used real cigarettes that he was really smoking (that was the only awesome part)… it was the epitome of bad church drama.
  • There will be a really cool blog post tomorrow morning – so be sure to come by and check it out! I can’t wait!

Barak and Roll

I’ve always been a good Republican – I’ve always voted Republican and have been happy and honored to do so. I have very solid moral convictions that have compelled me to vote a certain way all my life. With this being said, I can not lie and say that I was sad last night to see the news that our nation had overwhelmingly voted for Barak Obama.

He is inspiring and an amazing communicator – none of you could say otherwise. (well, you could I guess, but that would just be silly) This is a dream fulfilled for many, many people. The election of Obama is a great testament to how far we have come as a nation and I am honored to call this country home. I desperately want there to be truthful reconciliation between us – not just between black and white – but between republican and democrat. Without this, we can’t even start to fix some of the huge issues that we face.

Even though President-Elect Obama doesn’t hold all of the same moral beliefs that I do, I will still support him and pray for him daily. I believe he can be a positive force for change in our nation. If I trust God, I can believe nothing else. So many of you are twittering and posting blogs about trusting in God – and if we truly trust in God then we have to trust that He allowed Obama to be elected and therefore has a sovereign plan for this presidency. The bottom line is….I trust in God – not in Barak Obama or John McCain – and that brings so much relief and peace to me.

My prayer is that the church will support – with all of our hearts – our new president. I don’t mean that we support initiatives that go against our moral beliefs, but that we support him in prayer and in striving for true unity in this nation.


Fair Fun

Every Halloween, a bunch of from church get together and go to the fair…it’s so much fun! There’s no one there – everyone else is out trick or treating… We had a great time – here are a few pics…

Ummmm…So, Reagan kind of freaked out halfway down the slide. But then he got up and rode all the big kid, scary rides anyway. I, on the other hand, wanted to throw up just watching him stand in line to ride the spider.

Rylee and her Papa…

Reagan and his friend, Ethan – they rode this about 10 times, I think.

Reagan with his cousins, Gabriel, Noah and Adam and his friends, Ethan and Caleb.

Rylee hung out in her stroller until it was sleepy time – she’s just so darn cute I couldn’t resist putting this one in here.

What did you all do last night?


Monday Afternoon Football

Don had to work the weekend, so he’s off for the next two days. We were supposed to clean out the garage but we ended up in the back yard playing football. Rylee was the cheerleader and I was the media..



Yesterday I was out for a few hours and left the kids with a sitter. When I returned, I opened the fridge to start dinner and this is what I found…

It was full when I left and empty when I returned. And yes….it’s half and half…Reagan is in trouble…


Thursday Morning Brain Dump

  • Rylee has slept 12 hours straight the past three nights! Yea! I’ve been reading the book “Twelve Hours Sleep by Twelve Weeks” by Suzy Girodano and implementing some of her recommendations. It worked from the very first night!
  • Reagan is pretty much potty trained – he’s even gone the last three nights with a dry pull up!
  • Don’s work schedule is really driving me crazy…and that’s all I’ll say about that. I’m so thankful that he has a job and I am trying not to complain about that when so many other people don’t have jobs at all.
  • I can’t seem to get warm today.
  • I’m hosting a baby shower this Saturday for Lynne – she runs the office at GAFA and is having a baby in just a few weeks! Lynne and James have been trying to have a baby for a long time now and have really had to trust God for healing and a healthy pregnancy. He has been faithful to them and in just a few weeks we will welcome little Christian into the world!
  • I can’t believe it’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping already
  • I make some pretty darn good chocolate chip cookies if I do say so myself
  • We’ve got some ideas for the big show in May – I hope we can figure out to do it cause it would be so cool!
  • I voted early on Monday – I was undecided until the moment I walked up to the booth – this one has been hard for me.

Love you all!


My Little Girl

Everyone told me that the first child always has more “photo shoots” and I didn’t believe them. But it’s true…I have about a million pictures of Reagan but I’ve fallen waaaaay behind on documenting the little girlie.

So – after Rylee’s bath today I put her in her first little pink tutu and started snapping away. (tee hee!)
