The Sky

Just a few pictures of the clouds coming home from Disney on Ice.

Disney on Ice

On Saturday, Randall, the kids, and I loaded up and headed to Little Rock for the 11:00 showing of Disney On Ice Celebrations!! It was wonderful, and we all had a good time. Randall says he spent too much money (and by the time you throw in a program, 2 souvenirs, 2 snow cones, and lunch, he was probably right!!), but it was well worth it!
waiting to go in

To Infinity and Beyond!

Emma's Birthday Flowers

Like I said in a post on February, Randall and I decided to place flowers at the alter at church for Mac and Emma's birthdays. We provided them this last weekend for Emma's birthday. I took her with me to order them, and she told the lady that she wanted pink, purple, and white. I think they turned out beautiful!!

God's Will

As I finished my prayer hour tonight for our prayer wall at church (we have someone praying every hour, so prayer is going up every day, every week, every month, of every year) I came across this on youtube.

Just thought I would share! I've enjoyed spending my last hour in prayer!

Emma participated in the derby this week, and she did a great job! She raced 3 or 4 times before she was eliminated!!

Disney on Ice

Emma's birthday is Monday, and Grammy and Gramps gave her a present last night...they bought her a ticket to see

She is so excited. We'll be heading to Little Rock tomorrow for the 11:00 showing! I'll post more pictures after we go!

St. Jude's Trike-a-thon

I took the day off today so I could watch Mac participate in his 2nd St. Jude's Trike-a-thon at Miss Renee's. He is so excited about me coming to help and watch him today! I think this is a great cause, and a great way for these young children to learn to help someone else. All week the kids have talked about bike safety, and today they will be riding! I plan on taking pics and posting them later. If you want to help sponsor him, just let me know! I have another week before I have to turn in the money! His goal is $100!!

Trip to Branson with Grammy

A couple of weeks ago, Grammy and I loaded up Emma and Mac and went to Branson for the weekend. Daddy and Gramps were in Mt. View turkey hunting, so we decided we needed to get away too!! We left about 4:00 on Friday afternoon. When we got to Branson, we checked into our hotel and then headed out to the Factory Shoppes Mall so the kids could get down and walk a little before we ate dinner. After that, we headed to Red Lobster for supper, then headed back to the room for the night. On Saturday morning, we went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast, then headed out to Silver Dollar City. We didn't have much on the agenda other than to let the kids ride rides, and that they did!! After we left SDC, we went back to the room to attempt a nap, but that didn't work, so we took the kids out to the little play area by the hotel. We shopped a little at Tanger Mall. We had dinner at Hard Luck Diner, then headed out to see the show Noah (with the help from some great friends!!). The show was wonderful! Sunday morning we had breakfast at Golden Corral, messed around a little, and then headed home because Emma and I had children's choir at 4:00. We had a great weekend!! ETA: I forgot to add that we actually ALL jumped on the beds at the hotel Friday when we got there...Grammy reminded me so I could add that!!Emma touching a lobster at Red Lobster.

Mac's favorite site of the weekend!!
