Florida memories

Way to go Houston and Rachel!!!! Their long awaited day went off without a hitch... the FL rains even let up for their pictures. It was really great to be with the whole family for the first time in another state... we need to to that more often. I'm sure Houston and Rachel wouldn't mind reserving every anniversary they will have for a "family" vacation, right guys?! We'll just find a spot that doesn't require Butch to fly.

Cabbage Patch Kids

I need your comments!
What age do girls like playing with Cabbage patch kids? I have a ton. I have even more than a ton of their clothes, which Ami NEVER uses. There are 2 baskets in her closet of the accessories and I'm wondering if I should give them away or just put them away til next year.... right now she just plays with little things - mini ponies and mini Disney princesses and my little pet shop stuff....

Early mornings with the police

So I was awakened by the door bell incessantly ringing this morning. It was the Pinal county Police. Someone had called 911 and hung up. Caidgen said he saw Amie playing with the phone but she DENYED it! The officer was really nice about it and told her she was not in trouble, that he just had to make sure she was okay. Yikes. Odd part was, the phone was right by where I was sleeping and I had no idea!
I love summers.
I also got to play domestic Suzie this morning and bust out the sewing machine. I love it! I mended Amie's dance costume last week (pics later since they are on my mother in law's camera - mine's at my mom's and has been for a while). I loved getting to do that for her! I also altered a bunch of maternity shirts that were way boobalishious. It's so fun! I was never like that, and though my mom is a great seamstress I didn't learn from her growing up. She's slowly teaching me now and I am really enjoying it. Talk about nesting! I mended a church sock for Caidgen (how leave it to beaver is that) and also his spiderman costume that Amie cut up this week - WHILE HE WAS WEARING IT.
Like i said, I love summers.

What I read last night and really liked

In his gospel, Matthew mentions his own name only twice. Both times he calls himself a tax collector. In his list of apostles, he assigns himself the eighth spot.

When you empty yourself, God has a useful vessel. When you're full of yourself, God can't fill you.
