P.S. I told you I'd upload the video tonight....I made it with almost an hour to spare.

This afternoon we're going to get Brody's 6 month pictures taken. We bought a package from a photographer in town where he takes a picture at 3, 6, 9, & 12 months. At then end of the year we'll get a framed set of pictures (1 from each session). The photographer is really good and the 3 month pictures looked awesome...but they're so expensive!!!! We paid $40 for the promotional package (that's not bad), however, it costs almost that much to get ONE 5"x7" picture! No thanks! Sorry.....but ya'll will just have to enjoy the pictures that we're taking. When we went to pick out the 3 month picture the photographer actually tried to get us to buy a $350 collage! It was really cute...but I think I'll try to take my own pictures for that price!
When I was home for a snow day (was that last week?) I got caught up on Brody's baby book journaling. Now I just need to order some pictures to put in there.
Wow...this is a really boring blog. I'm just rambling. My mind is full of things I need to do today. Let's see...I'm also supposed to get dog food and make a deposit on my way home from work. I'd give you my grocery list...but if you're not asleep yet it'd put you to sleep. Oooo...here's something fun. This is something that I'm gonna make (ingredients are on my grocery list) from my friend Ray Ray: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/?q=recipes/turkey-florentine-meatball-heroes I let you know if it's good :)

Sharon (Grandmommy's sister) told me she is going to start a blog after her retirement officially begins (she retired but hasn't really left the office yet as they were still short handed).
GG...where are you with getting a blog started?
I told Tyler and Ann that I'd give them a year of marriage before we start bugging them about starting one...so they have until this July ;)

I stopped by the grocery store on the way home from work on Friday. As I was walking into the store I almost ran into the old man walking in front of me. He was walking really slow and PUSHING the door open!? I thought, "That's strange. Why's (**is this a TX word? spell check doesn't like "Why's" as in Why is?**) he PUSHING an automatic door?" As I followed him inside I realized that he was pushing the door because the electricity was out, therefore, the door wasn't opening automatically. As soon as we entered the electricity came back on. I didn't think anything of it (our town tends to have frequent outages). Before I could even get to the first aisle, the electricity went out again. This time it stayed out! It made for a very fun experience! Usually when you're in the grocery store it is BRIGHTLY lit! Have you ever been in there in total darkness? Since it's a small town grocery store...there are only FIVE aisles and I know them like the back of my hand. I didn't have any trouble finding things in the dark. A few of the workers were walking around with flashlights offering to help people shop by holding a flashlight for them. Luckily they have a 30 minute battery backup on their registers...so they were still able to check people out. Maddie (the lady that sacked my groceries) said that if the power is out for longer than 30 minutes they have to close their doors. By the time I got home, the power was back on...so I'm sure they didn't have to close the doors.
I was kinda sad that it was all elderly people in the store...no kids. I think that kids would think it was so fun to get to walk thru the grocery store in total darkness! Maybe it'll happen to me again someday.....

A single day on which us men must do something wonderful for our wives that's suppose to make up for the other 364 days of the year. I would like to suggest to the men who read this blog, that you take time each and every day to not only tell your wife how much you love and care for her, but show her. Be that man that God has called you to be....
Ephesians 5:25 "Husbands,love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her"
That being said... It doesn't mean you can't enjoy the Holiday!
I love you
Just three little words
don't seem like enough
for someone whose smile
still brightens my day,
whose touch can make me forget
the rest of the world.
But even though "I Love You"
can't express the depth
of my feelings for you.
I hope you know what's in my heart.
A Beautiful Morning
The sun rises above the hillcrest,
As does the joy of my heart;
Rays of warmth and love,
From her I will never depart.
Fresh dew upon the grass,
Young birds chirp in their nests;
I watch her gently sleep,
My love to her I silently profess.
I enjoy the stillness and calm,
Watching as she smiles and dreams;
She brings me to stillness and peace,
Like that of a slow flowing stream.
My heart and soul flow with love,
And I smile as I quietly reflect;
I’ve been handed a sweet princess,
A sweet princess to love and to protect.
A vow to myself I make,
As she quietly sleeps away;
To love and always cherish her,
Until my last breath... until my last day.

DAD STARTED A BLOG!!!! You'll find his link over to the left under TX friends. What's even more exciting is that he told Grandmommy that he'd start a blog if she would. So....now I'm expecting Daddy Ken and Grandmommy to have a blog soon. And.....if they can have a blog....so can GG, and Sharon! *hint, hint* If you haven't checked out Caleb & Audria's blog yet...make sure you do. Caleb is a genius with the camera and the video's on there are guaranteed to make you smile :)
I love blogs! *sigh*
So here's the question of the day. What is the craziest thing you've ever done to trim your child's nails?

Mike, Brody, and Tyus (Dwayne and Rene's 3rd child)
Brody played with toys while we watched the game.
Jeremy (the youth minister), his son Gabriel (on the left) and Cedric (Dwayne & Rene's youngest)
Mike was excited to see the Colts win...but Brody and I didn't make it to the end of the game. We left just after half time. I had to get home to feed Brody and get him to bed. I went to bed late (9 pm) after I was pretty sure that the Colts were gonna come out on top. We usually turn on the radio for Brody at night....but Mike had the sound system at Dwayne & Rene's. I think the dead silence interrupted Brody's sleep pattern. He woke up twice last night! He fell back asleep as soon as I gave him his paci...but I didn't! The first time it took me 30 min. to get back to sleep. The second time it was an HOUR before I fell back asleep! Ugh. I'm tired today!!!
