I love listening to my kids pray.  It’s so adorable.  Tonight before they went to bed, this is what I heard… Justin:  Jesus, thank you for my rah-rah (his little tiger lovey that he is always snuggling with) and thank you for my football and thank you for my baseball and my bat.  Thank you […]


Still waiting

It’s Friday night now, and we still can’t find any gas.  Matt and my brother just left (it’s almost 11pm), because a coworker of Matt’s just called and said he found a station 10 minutes away from our house with some gas.  I really hope they still have some when Matt gets there or else […]

Today we bought the kids their Halloween costumes.  I know it’s a bit early, but the last two years I waited until mid-October, and all the good costumes in the sizes I wanted were gone.  So, when I saw the costumes out at Target, I decided to let the kids go ahead and pick theirs […]
