"In our day to day actions, it is often the small and simple things that will have a long-lasting impact. What we say, how we act, and how we choose to react will influence not only ourselves but also those around us. We can build up, or we can tear down." -Per G. Malm

Saturday Mornings

(Peaceful music playing) Ahhh. Saturday Mornings. How great it is to sleep in all cuddled up next to your husband. How great it is to have a lazy morning with a yummo brunch because you've only been up since 9:00 and 10:00 is the perfect brunch time. Yeah. (Skreek, Music stops abruptly). Yeah I wouldn't know. It is because we have an early riser. 6:00 or if we're lucky she sleeps in til 6:30. And actually who knows when she really gets up because that is when she is knocking on her door (from the inside) to let us know she wants out. "I awake" we hear. But not this morning. We kept hearing her try to open her door. She'd get it open then you'd hear the thud as it would close again. Then finally no thud and a little 3 foot figure standing in our door. (Good thing nothing was happening.) But on the bright side how fun was it to have her crawl into bed with us and give us good morning hugs and kisses. And when we finally decided we would definitely not be getting any sleep we got up and made the bed together as a family (sans the baby) and had family prayer. Then we made breakfast together as a family. Emily and Brock made the orange juice and the biscuits (they were from a can). While I made the sausage and gravy. Now don't be too excited. Its only because we were out of cereal. But nonetheless it was a very good time.

Retro "Good Times"

As I was scrolling through our computer I found this: http://www.weebl.jolt.co.uk/donkey.htm and I was reminded of all the fun times hanging out at the Newtons, watching movies, laughing, and eating ice cream. I especially loved the staying up til midnight so that it was officially Midnight so we could make the Bunny Tracks runs to Walmart. Thanks to Ali and Beans for finding this and sharing. I think it was more funny then because it was really late at night. Now it is just bizarre but still humorous. Thanks for all the memories and "Good Times"

Talent, Creative, and Humorous

Okay I am a Twilight fan and can laugh at this so those of you who aren't should be able to as well. I happened upon this on the Allen County Public Library website of all places. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dompotjTeIA My favorite part is the "snack" reference and the "hunt" part. I also loved the ending.

A Tribute

I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to a good friend of mine who is no longer with us. Shawn Offen. Otherwise known as Shawnzie (much like Fonzie). Shawn was and is a great person. Despite his trials and difficulties I always saw a happy and optimistic person. He made me laugh and taught me alot. I love and appreciate him so much and am grateful for the impact he had on my life. Although he is no longer in his mortal tabernacle I know he is doing great works. Thank you for touching my heart and my life. I will miss you and look forward to seeing you again.

I am Grateful

I am so grateful for all that I have. I appreciate opportunities to be humbled and reminded of just how fortunate I am. No matter how hard it gets it doesn't have to get you down. My mother in law sent me this video and I'd like to share it with you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MslbhDZoniY Watch it and be reminded of how blessed you are.
