oh, great !!!!!!!!!

Oh, Great........ so now I am married to a SENIOR CITIZEN!!!!!!!!!! Terry calls and was giving me a run down of his McDonald's experience! He ordered all the stuff and was looking at his receipt because it did not sound like much and low and behold they gave him a Senior Citizen discount!!!!!! Oh, my........I know he has some gray hair but this was too much. Micah said," how did they know, they don't know his birthday." I said, " I guess they just LOOKED at him!!" But really, he does not look THAT old, and he certainly has plenty of youthfulness in his behavior, it just had to be the woman behind the counter not seeing straight.....or something!!!! Oh, well, gave us all a laugh anyway.

It has been raining here for a week or more and boy does it set you mood and spirits to "low." Hope to get some sun for the weekend says the weather man!! So that means I need something to cheer us all up. Lets "Name a Photo!!" Check the picture out below and come up woth some captions and we'll look em over and announce a winner!! We'll go through Friday the 16th and announce at 6 pm central time! I love giving things away so join us. There are soooo many that are just readers but come on and get in on the fun!!!

Tonight, adventures for sure!!! Dave and Kate are coming over and preparing/cooking dinner for Terry, myself, Andrew, Josh, Jeremiah, Hosie, Josiah and Mercy while all the others head over to our friends the Wilson's for food and fellowship and whatever else they can get into!! I know with Dave here, the littles will be entertained!!

I am about to go put the glaze on the top of the wall, above the chair rail and the walls will be done. I still have to paint the base board but it has been to damp to get in the garage. The beds might be here on Monday!!!

Not much else!! The tractor is doing jobs around here and it is so wonderful to look out across the pasture and see it knowing God's provision!!

Bring the Captions on.......... no anonymous please and as many as you like!!!

Cute photo and that is funny about Terry. He does not look old at all!! Did he mention to the lady he has had 13 children? That would be even funnier :) I hope you guys are well. THink of you often. Sorry the weather is gloomy, it has been here too and it can set the mood at times huh. Hope your heart is feeling strong and joyful in the Lord. I enjoy reading your blog still and peaking in. You are all a great example for us. Blessings and Love

I love reading the captions!

Lots of rain here too... very low moods around here :(

I haven't updated my blog in almost a month.... its been difficult. I thank you for being a faithful friend. Your blog always encourages me.

We are going to drive about 2 hrs tomorrow (the children and I) to see Mandi. We will have lunch, shop and do some fun things with the kids. It has been a MONTH since she was home... since we have seen her. I miss her terrible. I need to pull myself up by the bootstraps and bake her some pumpkin bread and get things ready for Sunday.

Need a few minutes along... w/ the Lord. :)

hmmmm a caption....

"let me show you how to do it, Siah!" Mercy said. :)

Carinna said...

Mercy says- "May I pleeeease play???"

Josh replies- "Mercy I keep telling you you are to little to catch the ball!"

Siah says- "Quick Mercy catch the ball before Josh opens his eyes."

Carinna :) said...

Mercy says- "Boys can I play?"

Siah replies- "You have to wear a blue shirt before you can."

Josh says- "She doesn't HAVE to HAVE a BLUE shirt!!!"
