Lo siento!

Sorry guys! I took a little unplanned break from blogging. Let me catch you up to speed...

Two Saturdays ago, Jeffry and I took the boys to the Monster Truck show in Gulfport. We had gotten Bray tickets to the show for his birthday. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I had so much fun! The trucks were crazy, and the guys on the dirt bikes doing tricks...let's just say I was super-impressed but seriously nervous for them! I'll post some pics later. Afterwards we got to take a picture with one of the drivers. That night, we went out to dinner at Pizza Hut. Brayden had seen a commercial for stuffed crust pizza and had been dying to try it, LoL. We had a great family day!!

We finally closed on our property, which was really exciting! For those of you who don't know, we bought 90 acres just north of Wiggins. It's basically a farm; already fenced in with cows roaming around and a couple of barns! We won't keep the cows, but we will probably buy some in the future. The boys are really excited. They live outside anyway, so the farm is like a huge playground for them!

Jeffry and I left for Birmingham on Valentine's Day, headed for our hardware show. Every six months we attend a buying show for the store. It really is work, but it's better than being in the office all day! And at night, we get to play! Usually we go on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but since I'm helping lead worship at church, we left early. We arrived Thursday afternoon and got settled in our room. That night, we went to Lakeview Oyster House for dinner. It was great! I loved the food, and my dessert was a chocolate cheesecake that was seriously good. Friday morning we went shopping at The Summit (my favorite place in Birmingham) and had lunch at P.F. Chang's. Yumm.... That night, Jeffry rented us a limo, and we celebrated our official Valentine's date at Plaza III- it's this really nice steakhouse that is ridiculously expensive (we only splurge there once a year! ha!) Needless to say, it was wonderful! If you can't tell, our favorite thing to do when we go out of town is eat. LoL. We got up early Saturday morning to finish up working the show and drove back home to get ready for Sunday.

Last night, I listened to Evan's (my little brother) basketball game on the radio online. They were up pretty much the entire game, but almost gave it away in the 4th quarter. What was once a 15 point lead dwindled to a 4 point lead with 20 seconds left in the 4th. I looked so funny...I was on my knees in my bedroom in front of my laptop willing them to win! And they did! Thankfully! So they have advanced in the State Tournament and they play again Friday night. Guess where I'll be....

Play Date!

Tuesday night, Jeffry had a mens meeting at church so I invited my best friend Cydnee to bring her kids over to play. Cydnee and I were just standing at the counter talking while Caleb and Madisyn were playing. Madisyn had brought her baby doll over, and it was laying on the counter. Caleb undressed the baby doll and took off her diaper all by himself!! It was so funny. Look at the picture...he kinda looks proud of himself, LoL. Of course, Jeffry doesn't like these pics too much. I included two pictures of Madisyn. I love her. We're contemplating an arranged marriage...haha.

For Aunt Teresa

Hey Aunt Teresa!!
We just wanted to you see that we LOVE our new pillowcases. We're so glad that you got our names embroidered on them so that we don't have to fight over whose pillow is whose. Tell Granny that we love them too! Caleb keeps wanting to take his to daycare and home everyday. We may have to commission Gran to make a couple more, haha!
We love you!
Brayden and Caleb

Our Favorite Things

This is my little musician! Both of the boys love music and love to play and sing, but especially Caleb. He's got rhythm, baby! You should see him dance. Very cute!! Jeffry and I joke that Bray dances like a white boy...he doesn't quite have the rhythm that Caleb does, haha. Anyway, Caleb has been pounding away on my new keyboard that Jeffry got me for Christmas. I hope that one day both of my boys will learn to play instruments. Music is such an important part of my life and ministry, and I hope to pass that on to my boys!!

So here is Bray with his new favorite hobby. His "N-tendo DS". Except that Jeffry seems to enjoy it just as much as Brayden does...hmm....

One of my favorite artists

If you are in need of a new favorite CD, look no further. One of my favorite worship leaders is Kari Jobe. I stumbled upon Kari through my pastor, and since then, her music is always playing on my iPod. The lyrics are so incredible, and the music is so anointed. One of the things I really like about Kari is the fact that she is so real. Her heart is to lead people through worship to the Throneroom of God. To get to know Kari a little better, check out an interview she did for Korban Worship. (Just go to youtube and type in Kari Jobe interview). Also be sure to order her CD at You won't be disappointed!!
