TODAY IS MY SWEET HUBBY'S BIRTHDAY. HE IS 39 TODAY BUT WILL ALWAYS BE A KID AT HEART! I THINK THAT IS WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT HIM. HE IS SO SMART, HARD WORKING AND DILIGENT WHEN HE NEEDS TO BE BUT HE HAS A JOYFUL HEART. THE BOYS GET TO LEARN SO MUCH ABOUT LIVING LIFE WITH JOY FROM THEIR DADDY. HE KNOWS HOW TO FIND HAPPINESS IN THE SMALLEST OF THINGS. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH AND HOPE HE ENJOYS HIS LITTLE FAMILY PARTY WITH CHERRY CHEESECAKE, HIS FAVORITE. I KNOW THE BOYS ARE EXCITED. THEY HAVE PICKED OUT HIS "PRESENTS" AND CAN'T WAIT TO GIVE THEM TO HIM. ANDREW PICKED HIM WORK GLOVES AND MASON PICKED FREE ICE CREAM CERTIFICATES FROM DQ AND SONIC. DAD IS A HARD WORKER BUT WE KNOW WHAT HE LIKES WHEN IT IS BREAK TIME!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARK! I LOVE YOU.

You guys have to go check out my friend Tammy's blog. She is absolutely hilarious and has a heart of gold to boot! Reading her posts make me laugh out loud so I warn you not to embarrass yourself at work! She has worked tirelessly as the founder of Chrysalis House, a ministry for homeless mothers and their children. She and the team of loving people working right along beside her are getting close to the goal and may soon see this building ready to welcome moms and children to get the support they need and the opportunity to know and accept the love of Christ. Check out her ministry blog to get the latest news and find out how you can help this great ministry.

Please pray for those who have suffered loss. I have many coworkers in South Texas that have been devastated. My heart is breaking for them.

SOMETIME BEFORE THE NUMBING AGENT WORE OFF ANDREW BIT HIS LIP TERRIBLY. IT WAS SO SWOLLEN AND RED AND TURNED IN TO A BIG NASTY ULCER. A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER IT STILL LOOKED PRETTY BAD BUT WAS HEALING UP FINE. WHILE WE WERE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME HE WAS TELLING HIS LITTLE BUDDY AUSTIN ABOUT HIS LIP. THE CONVERSATION WENT SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
AUSTIN: "WHAT IS THAT ON YOUR MOUTH"
ANDREW: "I BIT MY LIP IN THE CAR AND TAR FLEW EVERYWHERE. IT SQUIRTED OUT OF MY LIP."
AUSTIN JUST LOOKED CONFUSED AND TURNED TO KEEP PLAYING. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, THOUGHT, WHAT ON EARTH IS HE TALKING ABOUT? TAR? I THOUGHT IT MUST HAVE BLED A LOT WHEN HE BIT IT, BUT HE NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE BLOOD AND I NEVER SAW BLOOD ON ANYTHING...OH WELL. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE NEXT DAY THAT I REMEMBERED THAT MARK HAD SAID, "ANDREW, YOU BIT THE TAR OUT OF YOUR LIP" , WHEN HE SAW HOW BAD IT WAS. ANDREW TOOK THAT LITERALLY AND EMBELLISHED HIS STORY TO HIS LITTLE FRIEND. HOW FUNNY! I KNEW ANDREW WAS FULL OF A LOT OF THINGS...I DID NOT KNOW TAR WAS ONE OF THEM.
CHECK OUT MORE FUNNY KIDS AT MARY'S. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO TUESDAYS OVER AT HER LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD.

Such a serious look! He must be practicing his game face.
I will keep you posted as the season unfolds. It is so cute to see him working hard at something so "big". We will be heading to the local high school football game tonight. It is the first game of the season. The boys are so excited. I am too! I just love how our entire little town seems to show up to support our kids. One more reason I love living in a small town.
