Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

Prayers going out to Ryan. I'm so sorry for your loss, my friend.

And healing prayer requests for Merry's Mr. I hope all goes well for you both.

Jacob finally came home from the Christian retreat, and is very, very intense about his convictions now. He got out of the car and hugged his mama and hugged me...in public...for longer than 1 second! It's all he's talked about since he got home. Bless his heart.

Our family vacation keeps getting pushed out for other things. Now we can't go when we planned because Elizabeth has auditions for the Nutcracker. Last year, she missed the audition and went to late auditions and only got a small part. She wants a larger role this year, but has to be here that week to get it. I doesn't look like vacation is in the cards for us this year. Oh well.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Hello all.

MerryCarey-what's the latest word on Mr.? Praying for you guys!

Well, I have to throw something out there...

My grandma's husband is in the hospital recovering from a surgery related to prostate cancer. My great-grandma went into the hospital last week. My cousin had her twins four months prematurely, and yesterday we lost one of my other cousins. So, my grandma has her husband, her mother, her great-grandbabies in the hospital, and lost a grandson yesterday. Prayers for grandma would be appreciated! She's an amazing woman and I have a tremendous amount of respect for her and love her dearly. It breaks my heart all that has gone on, and breaks my heart to see her with so much on her. She's strong and is surrounded by family, and she's one tough woman!

I'll move on but just had to give a shout-out to grandma because she's my hero!

Well, in spite of everything, I am excited about July 4th! We bought things for our annual cook-out over the weekend...and I can't wait to make some boneless beef ribs, brats, hot links, and some other stuff. Our neighbors come over, and we can see a great fireworks show from the front lawn. Moore is continueing on with the celebration and I think it's awesome for the community since this has been such a hard summer with the torandoes. Moore needs some fun and by golly we're going to have it Thursday come hades or high water!

Alright, sorry to rant. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

see, miracles do still happen!
I hope Elizabeth gets the role she wants this year!
LittleCS is auditioning for a role in the play "How to Succeed in Business without really trying" being put on by the community players.
Some things are just more important than vacations.

Btw, what are your plans for the 4th?

We are heading up north to Adrian's boss's house on the lake for his annual bash. But, it's on the 3rd. My parents & Jazzie are kind enough to come up & stay with Harlowe so we can go. So appreciative about that, especially with all of the fireworks going on already. They make her anxious. We should be home late that night/early Thursday, and then we'll celebrate the 4th with my parents! We got some steaks to grill, and I will also make some au gratin potatoes, and corn on the cob. I'll be making my taco dip to snack on, as well. Mom is making my favorite Magic Cookie Bars- we aren't going to go hungry

Today, I need to go grocery shopping, and stop at Menards & pick up a few more lawn chairs, and then study.

It's supposed to be sunny & nice today, with a high of 82 degrees.

Hope you all have a blessed day!!

xx

Your July 4th plans sounds like a lot of fun and the menu sounds fab! Any room for one more lol?? Big hugs for Har, glad to hear she is ok.

I'm not working right now, just preparing for my exam & helping Adrian out with his charity work when he has things for me to do =]

We are going up north on the morning & afternoon of the 3rd. (We are driving separately so he has more time there) I will wait until my folks get here so I can show them a few things. So, we'll just be gone for the day.

Thanks, we'll have fun I'm sure!!

Hope you're having a fabulous Canada Day!!
