For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton son, that whosoever shall believeth in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Favorite Foto Friday

It is Friday, thank goodness!!  I am participating in FFF.  If you would like to join in the fun, just join Hannah over at Me-Me and Monkey's BIG Adventure.  This week is U-Pick.  

Last weekend was very, very busy for us.  As I told you in my earlier post, one of my brothers will be leaving next Thursday for Afghanistan.  He didn't think he was going to be able to come home before being deployed, but at the last minute he contacted me via FB to let me know he was coming in.  So I made plans last Friday to go see him on Saturday and then on Sunday we had a birthday party and while we were at the birthday party, my husband took my mother-in-law to the hospital because she was having chest pains.  So it was a busy, busy weekend.  So I thought I would share some of the photos from last weekend for today.  I hope you enjoy!!
My brother was going to visit his two boys while in town and he had gotten a book called Over There and it talks about the same things that he will be doing while he is gone that we do over here.  It was a really neat book and he was reading it to Kenleigh.  So sweet!!

My daddy and brother Jason.
Here we all are laughing pretty hard about something??  Anyways:  Daddy, Jason, Kenleigh, Kaitlyn, Me and my Aunt Pam.

Here is Jason with his wife Jamie. 
Please say a special prayer for her.  I can't imagine what she must be going through.  My husband has never been away from me except for a few nights here and there. 
Now on to Sunday........Here are all the guests from the double birthday party.  This slide was a hit!!  The kids absolutely loved it, except Kenleigh.  I think she was just a little too small for it.  She came down really, really fast and then hit the water face first and got water all in her eyes.  So she spent most of her time either here:

In this little playhouse where she could open and shut the door, or on the trampoline below.  I was wore out by the end of the day because I had to take her around to three different places.  She thought she wanted to get on the slide, so I would put her in and then she decided she didn't want in there.  What we do for our children!! 
Happy 6th Birthday to Cloyee and Reece!!

These were the kids that were left after the party and they played on the slide forever!!  Reece and Cloyee, Zoei, Karlie and Kaitlyn.

Here is Gavin and Kenleigh.  I think she has found her a little boyfriend.  They played in the little house together and now they are eating out of their goody bags!!  

I hope everyone has a very Happy 4th!!

Shoot Me 5 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

I know I have not blogged in a while and I apologize but I have been very, very busy.  I am working on VBS and plus I am participating in a Beth Moore Bible study on Wednesday nights and there is homework with it and I never get it all done but I do try to do some of it, so I have not had any time for blogging!!  

This past weekend I went to see one of my brothers who will be deploying next Thursday.  Please say a special prayer for him.  He is 26 and will leave behind a wife and 5 kids.  He wasn't sure if he would be able to come home before being deployed and so I just thank God for him getting to come in and me getting to visit with him before he leaves.  I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.  I am so looking forward to it.  The kids are participating in a Patriotic Program at church on Sunday night and then our Bible school starts Monday night, so it may be a while before I get to blog again.  Hopefully I can get back soon.

Shoot Me! It's time to stop hiding behind that camera of yours. Your family is missing you in the picture. So it's time to post a picture of YOU (yes, you) every Thursday with your child, your spouse, your friend, your dog, or even by yourself. Just get in the picture, you'll be glad you did! And just jump in now with 1 of 52, you can do it!
