Oh, don't you cry for me

Off to Alabama... for the Call Saturday and a mini-vacation Friday and Sunday. I'm sure I will miss my kids terribly, but I'm pretty excited about the break.
VKG landed safely, and even took the van out for a spin around KC, and got lost. So she's adapting quickly. It took me a couple of weeks to get lost!

So there you go. Oh, and the sickness is finally over. 24 hours... more like 32 hours. I resolve to never throw up again in my life.

HEY! Look at my new great-nephew! SERIOUSLY... most newborns look like boiled monkeys, but this little guy is cute from the get-go. Good genes.

Good job, Chase and Lacy! Can't wait to meet him!

    no one should ever boil a monkey.

  17. jennifer, perhaps you can make the bride-n-groom's cake....

    half-chocolate, half-vanilla

    like a marriage
    part dark, part light
    part deep, part high
    part rich, part light
    part ....

    you know.... just half-n-half

    with 3 layers

    the bride
    the groom
    and the Holy Spirit!!!
