I am helping our nephew Ray buy a townhouse. We had to make an addendum to the contract today and long story short we just need favor from the underwriters of his loan not to make a big deal about the change. Closing is supposed to be March 14. So will you pray for favor, and that the underwriting will go smoothly and we will have an on time closing. And that I wouldn't be anxious.

Basketball Fan

Luke has really started liking to play ball. He went to quite a few of Katelyn and Kyle's basketball games. I spend 95% of the time watching him to make sure he doesn't go running out onto the court, and the rest actually watching the game :) He really does love to go and cheers a lot while jumping and running in circles. Yesterday in the car he was saying "defense, defense". He has a orange scooby doo basketball at home, and now he asks "You play ball with me Poppy??" And how could you resist that?

Ah hah!

I thought the new energy efficient bulbs were kind of wierd looking, so I hadn't thought about converting. Until my handyman gave me his testimonial: he switched the 23 bulbs in his place out and this resulted in a $40 savings on his electric bill in ONE month! I was sold. I bought packs of 6 at Walmart and swapped a bunch out already. You should do it too!!!

Big Boy

I left Luke with a pair of pants this morning, walked away to get his socks... and when I got back he had put both his legs into the pants. I was so surprised :) Seems like such a little thing, but he put them on all by himself and I never even taught him. So smart. I love you "mamas best boy"

Little Friends

When Luke was 20 months or so our friends Amy and Joe moved into town and their children became Lukey's first friends. Other than his cousins-- these are his best buddies. Even when he just started talking he would ask to see "Nate-Nate", Joey and Chloe. Here are some pictures of the kids playing on a warm day recently. We love doing playtime and they are all like family :)

Be My Valentine

Well Happy Valentines Day to all :) Do you feel loved today?
I have had a great day. Luke and I hung out this morning. Nanny took him for a little while I looked at a few properties-- then I got to have lunch with my Sweetie. Not too many times do we get to hang out during the day, really had a good time. We went to Bravo which was a treat. Their salad is sooooo good. Wayne gave me Chocolate from 'The Royal Chocolate'. A little chocolate store in the new VB Town Center area. They have great dark chocolate and our favorite is one with cornflakes in it. So good- you have to try! He bought Luke a chocolate covered rice krispie treat on a stick, which lasted about 2 minutes :)
Love you All!

Carried to the Table

Wounded and forsaken
I was shattered by the fall
Broken and forgotten
Feeling lost and all alone
Summoned by the King
Into the Master’s courts
Lifted by the Savior
And cradled in His arms
I was carried to the table
Seated where I don’t belong
Carried to the table
Swept away by His love
And I don’t see my brokenness anymore
When I’m seated at the table of the Lord
I’m carried to the table
The table of the
You carried me, my God
You carried me

Clara gave Wayne and I a mix worship CD and this song was part of it. The Lord really used it to minister to my soul. I hope you enjoy it- it is playing when you open my blog. May it encourage you as it has encourage me...
