A new day…

So, yesterday was a brand new day for me.  A whole new experience for me, that I was so ready for, and didn’t know all this time.  I got baptized.  I think my husband was more anxious than me the whole day, I was ready for it, let’s get this show on the road!  I went behind the stage to get dressed and as we waited, one by one went in, I sat and waited patiently for my turn.  There it was, I was next, I asked if it was too late to go to the restroom :)  No turning back now, I walked out there, and smiled from ear to ear the whole time.  I kept thinking my face is on the big screen, you have to smile, plus I was happy!  I don’t remember a single word Brother Joe said to me, besides do you believe in Jesus, of course I answered Yes, Sir.   Then came the time to get out of the water, OH MY, first step, good night, second step, what in the world, everyone is watching me, third step, I’m out, and this robe has suctioned cupped itself to my body!  I thought, you need to get yourself off of that stage and fast.  I never thought about that part!!  And the towel, well I might as well had a washcloth, it didn’t cover ANYTHING!!  Oh well, that is not what we were there for right? 

See I told you I was cheesing!  There I was on the big screen!

I really don’t have to hold my nose to go under water!  Plus I think I grabbed my nose a little too quickly, he wasn’t ready yet.

It was a whole new day for me!  I couldn’t quit thinking about it last night, therefore I didn’t fall asleep until well after 11, but it was all worth it!

Time out!!

Do you ever need to put yourself in a time out?  I need a time out today!  I need a break, a break to sit and think about some things.  A break to quietly pray about some things.  Maybe I will get it, at 10:00 PM tonight :)

You are more…

Sometimes things in life just have a way of working themselves out.  It is really funny how they work out, but they always do.  I am amazed to see some of the changes and good stuff  that is happening around me.  My cousin’s little boy is actually starting to talk a little, Thank you lord!  He is mimicking what his parents are saying, which is awesome!  Good job Colie Polie!  I am getting baptized Sunday night, that is a big change.

Gracie stopped going to children’s church, her choice, but she LOVES staying in her actual class, and helping out Miss Della.  If she loves doing it, then I am not going to pressure her to go to a different class.  Last night, talking to Brian, I told him, how I didn’t know but maybe 3 or 4 stories of the bible, literally.  I am not ashamed to admit it, I just don’t know them.  So, he suggested that while reading Gracie her bedtime story, I get her picture bible out and read that to her, that way we both learn the stories.  Needless to say, we learned a lot last night.  Gracie also sang the Father Abraham song to me, which was a nice treat.

Brian and I are having to do our daily devotionals at night for our marriage class, which makes us talk about things, that we normally wouldn’t talk about.  And it is nice to sit down and talk every once in a while.

Also, we are having date nights at church, to go along with the marriage class.  We are dropping Gracie off this Friday, and Brian & I are going on a date!  For 3 whole hours we get to be alone.  What are we going to do??

It is really nice to see all the good things happening in my life and my family’s lives, and believe me I am so thankful for them. 

SO, on that note, I heard a song this morning, that said:

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

If we all believe in our hearts that this is true, we can truly move on from the bad stuff in our lives, and start enjoying the good stuff.  That is what matters anyway right, the good stuff!

Marriage Class…

So, Brian and I started a marriage class last night at church, and I am SUPER pumped about it.  There is a daily devotional that goes along with it, so tonight for Valentine’s Day, after Gracie goes to bed, what will be more romantic than pulling out our study guides and going over the first lesson?  NOTHING, I tell you, Nothing!  We are both eager to learn from this, we just hoped it was longer.  It is only 4 weeks, boo hoo!  Oh well, 4 weeks is 4 more weeks to a better marriage! 

Anyway, there are a lot a great people in our class and funny too, we both feel comfortable enough to talk and share!  So, here goes nothing…

Famous Quote…

“I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy. First, let her think she’s having her own way. And second, let her have it.” -Lyndon B. Johnson

What a smart man! :)

Gracie’s First Sleepover

Gracie had been dying to have a sleepover, so I planned one, a surprise one.  I invited her cousins, Cailynn and Callie to come over and spend the night.  They were excited as well.  I told Brian we would get pizza, snacks, and let them play all night!  Luckily they were dropped off early enough and the weather cooperated, so they could go outside for a while.  They ran around and rode Gracie’s 4-wheeler.  They ended up not going to sleep until after 11:30, but it was so worth it.  Gracie was already asking to have them over again!

We need help!

We have SO much junk in Gracie’s room, and I can’t seem to ever get ahead of it.  I throw away, garage sale, and give away ALL-THE-TIME!  I am at a loss of what to do with all her stuff.  Please help, I need suggestions.  This spring, I would love to redo her room with paint and a actual bed set, along with curtains, but I need help.  Please I will take all suggestions!






AND i don’t want to hear one thing about quit buying her stuff, I didn’t buy all this stuff, you all did, for Christmas, birthdays, etc… Ok, maybe I did buy the shoes, but I swear, a lot of this other stuff came as gifts.   She is definitely one loved little girl!

Why do they always have to name it?

What is up with the weather guys and always having to name the storms that come through Oklahoma?  This one we are getting right now, Snowmaggedon 2011 is what I hear they are calling it, sometimes Blizzard of 2011, Snowocalypse, who cares!!  You know what, it is flippin cold, and blowing snow outside!  I don't care what you call it!  All I know is, my heater has been on non-stop since about 1:00 am, and it is still 67 degrees inside, and even though I left one of our faucets dripping last night, the shower was still frozen this morning.  Yes, I finally got it to come on, so at least I don't stink!  Brian had to dig out of 3 foot snow drift this morning to get his truck out of the garage to go to work.  Needless to say, he is not a happy camper.  Would you be if your pants were soaking wet, and your tail was freezing cold?  Our dog has peed in the kitchen floor, AND pooped in the living room!  All in all, I would say it was a typical snow day!  But I am very thankful to have what I have, especially electricity!  And to not have to work out in it.  Unlike my brother, who was at work outside, at 5 AM this morning with 5 layers of clothes on, in Elk City, OK.  Please pray he doesn't get frostbite!  Hope y'all stay warm!
