It has been brought to my attention that I totally ignored my blog last week while they kids were on spring break (actaully several of you mentioned it!) While I don't have time to do a full entry right now, here are some pictures to tide you all over until I have a moment.

As much fun as we had, thank the good Lord that school started back today!!

A Good Week

This week, Grace, almost 9, took communion for the first time. We've been talking to her about it and what it means. So, on Maundy Thursday, her earthly daddy served her her first communion. Even more fitting when you know that she accepted Christ on Maundy Thursday last year. God is so good.

YesterdayI started the day with breakfast with some of the most amazing women that I know. Then I came home to spend the rest of the day with another amazing lady, my mom. She came down to hang out with her baby and my babies. It was gorgeous outside and we spend lots of time blowing bubbles. I also took her over to the Via Crucis.


I've lost weight this week! Down 3.8 so far!

Via Crucis

One of the churches in our area, Vineyard Centeral, bi annually sponsors an artist representaton of Via Crucis, the way of the cross. Our church participated in depicting a station. Yesterday a friend and I went to experience the Via Crucis, the Immersion. Here are some pictures taken by Cindy Tucker. She does great stuff. The stations depicted are out of order so as to not detract from the experience of those who might go to view this.

Via Crucis Cont....

The picture above really touched me, one of my favorite and the crown of "thorns" really got to me.
Denial...I didn't know Him.
This exhibition, this immersion was incredibly personal and touching. Thank you, Jesus, for what you did, just for me.

On Of Those On Line Quizzes I Never Take

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Conversations with Elliana

Me: Ella, how much pee do you have in there?

Ella: three, four, five!!

It Is So Difficult...

to function in life with such a limited brain capacity. You see, my children think I am a complete idiot with absolutely no idea of how life works. I have not been able to please any of them for the past 36 hours (or more!) For example, I can, obviously, sit in a room where 2 children are fighting and not notice, because someone has to yell, "Mom!! They are fighting!" " I know, dear, they are sitting ON MY LAP!!!"

I am not the mind reader that my children think I should be. Miss Livi had a major melt down because I told Grace she could wear my barrette to school. Apparently, I was supposed KNOW, somehow, that she was hoping to wear that today.


On the good side, Ella has, after 2 accidents in big girl panties, asked to go twice and has gone! Yipppeee!! Picture to come soom, I am sure!
