I Can't Think of a Clever Title.

So much to write about, yet I'm feeling like my brain is not going to cooperate with me this morning when it comes to forming sentences.... alas. Let's try this and see how it goes:

Friday night we headed down to Kemah with Katie & Mo. We ate yummy Mexican food (PTL for chips and queso) while sitting outside watching the boats go by, rode a super fun and fast roller coaster, watched a teenage girl flirt with Mo and then we all sat down and had our caricatures made. FUNNY. Our dude drew Grant with his shirt off, with tons of muscles, with lightning shooting from his fingertips. HILARIOUS. It was such a fun night with some of our very favorite people!

Saturday morning, Grant & Mo decided that it would be a good idea to wake up at 6am and go fishing. I, on the otherhand, thought it would be a much better idea to sleep in till 9:00 and then lay on the couch and watch When Harry Met Sally. GREAT MOVIE.

Favorite line:

I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.


Moving on.

Saturday afternoon was Grace's birthday party. Our precious Parker is TWO years old! She had a wonderful time at her princess party and she had a very elaborate, dramatic reaction as each gift was presented to her. She was just thrilled, and that is all I can say!

Sunday morning we went to church where there were news crews interviewing everybody wanting to know HEY WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THE SWINE FLU?! and ARE YOU STILL SHAKING HANDS WITH PEOPLE!? and CAN YOU STILL LIFT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR WHEN YOU SING?!? and HEY ARE YOU NERVOUS TO BRING YOUR KIDS TO CHURCH?!.

Okay, seriously? Can we just enjoy our church service?

Please, leave. Thank you.

Church was great. Worship was great. Pastor Gregg has been out the last 2 weeks and it was so great to have him back. If you're ever home sick on a Sunday morning and need a good word, log on to and watch the sermon online, live. You won't regret it!

After church, my friend Lynn and I went to go see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past while our husbands played golf. It's a shame Matthew McConaghey is so ugly ;) It was a cute movie. It was a cute, girl movie and we laughed alot. Jennifer Garner is just a doll!

On my way home from the movie theater, my mom called and told me that my sister Jaclyn was in the emergency room with severe pain in her abdominum and lower back. I knew I had to go to church since my pre-school choir was having their big spring performance, so I just told my mom to call me if she was being admitted to the hospital.

Well, half-way through the performace of my kiddos (who were AWESOME by the way!), my cell phone rang and it was my mom telling me that poor Jaclyn (who just had a baby six weeks ago) has kidney stones and one of them had ruptured her ureter. I didn't really know what that was, but, um, OUCH!

My poor sister is in the hospital trying to pass this darn stone. I went up there last night and visited with her... she was very very drugged at the time so she was in a purty good mood. But then again, she was stoned. In more ways than one! Ha!

Sweet Grace is staying with Jeremy's mom while my mom kept the little buddy, Dean. Since Jaclyn is highly drugged on pain meds she is not able to breastfeed so the buddy had to have formula for the first time. He did relatively well but you can tell he isn't a real big fan!

Anyways, I am now at work but the last I heard my sister is still in the hospital and still in pain. Please pray that this stone passes quickly and that her pain subsides.

Thank y'all so much, have a great week!
