Happy Birthday

to ME! I am turning the big 40 this Sunday. Hard to believe I know. I can barely believe it myself, but it's true. How are we celebrating this great milestone in my life you ask? Big Poppa and I are taking about 20 youth to Winterjam to see toby Mac. Woo Who! Maybe it's my need to feel young or maybe it's just plain crazy. Either way that's the plan. Pray for them, I mean us. Just kidding! We love going places with them. I know it's going to be a great concert and now if it would just not rain/sleet/snow/ice or anything of the sort we will be all right. Although, it was a chilly 18* here in Georgia this morning. I can't remember when it's been this cold. Oh well........
Ya'll have a great long weekend.

Stuck in the Mud

So, yesterday Silly was sick and I had to keep her home from school (because Big Poppa would not want any dad to be the recipient of what he was the night before-sometimes Taco Bell just does not mesh well with a 5 year olds little tummy). Anywho, back to the picture. As the day went on I decided I would "help" Big Poppa out (being the sweet and helpful wife that I am) and load some stuff on the back of his truck for him to take to the dump. To do this I needed (well maybe not needed) to pull his truck around to the back of the house to load the stuff up and as I am going around the side of the house I begin to slide in the wet mud that is hidden underneath the leaves! I guess I forgot that when it rains for a couple of days in the winter it probably takes longer for the ground to dry out afterwards. When I start to slide I turn the wheel towards my next door neighbors yard so now not only am I slinging mud and digging holes in my yard, but the nice Pastor's yard too! I get out and access the situation! LOL! I go in to call Big Poppa to let him down easy and The Rock Star says he knows what to do. LOL! He gets some wood to put under the tires to get some traction-whatever-and tells me to give it a try. Deeper holes, more mud slinging. My neighbor, the Pastor comes home in the mean time and offers his help as well. Between him, The Rock Star, another neighbor boy, a chain, and some pulling/pushing we were able to get the truck out of the mud just as Big Poppa pulls in the driveway.
My day was eventful. How about yours?

Websters Dictionary

You know Websters should really make a dictionary compiled from the translation of words from children 6 years old and younger. Silly brought home a book from school titled "Who Do I Look Like"? One response was her mother. The little girl replied she could not look like her mother because she has freckles. After I read the book to Silly she decided to read it to me. Her word for freckles was "sprecklers".
I think they could really make some money because they come up with some cute stuff.

Silly had 4 little girls over yesterday afternoon for a little tea party! It was a lot of fun and the girls were so cute! The cute little red head said, "let's toast to best friends". Awe!

Two things Silly has decided that she does not like are:
Coffee Beans
OliversThey are so funny!
