I am so Proud

This is my cousin Lucas! He joined the military last year and is doing so great! Here are some photo's of him from his first unit ball!

His scheduled for special training for a month comming up this month and then he may be leaving for over seas very soon after that! My family and I are so proud of him and his mom!
Look how happy and handsome he is!

I am packing up a goodie box for him today! What are some things you would add? What are some things your loved ones ask for?

Denver Baby!!

Whoo Hooo! I booked my ticket for our annual "Dad"s weekend in May!
All my sisters and our brother get together to honor the memory and celebrate the life of our father in May!
I was so struggleing with this trip this year, with the expence to go to Denver, and the child care problems. With the help of my family it is all worked out and I will be able to go!

I was devistated inside to think that I would not be there with them for this meaningfull weekend and "Dad" really stepped in and made things work out! I am so thankful that I can go! It is going to be such an amazing weekend both spiritually and emotionally for me!

My tickets are all booked and my bags can be packed in no time! Now to get to work on some projects that I need to finish up and life is good!

I hope you all have a great day!

Honest opinions please!

OK, I would like some honest opinions here, you can post annon if you like, I don't need to know who thinks what, I just want to hear what the general opinion is on this subject!

Ok, being Easter I got to thinking about this saying,
"He has risen"

What if someone had a boat that sunk and was fully restored and the owner was looking for a name of it, and that persons neighbor, a very religious man by the way, suggested the name,
"He has risen" for the boat?

Now growing up catholic, I think this is a terrible name, am I being to judgemental?
Is it sacraligious to name an object with a phrase that signifies the lord, on the most special day in the hystory of that religion? Am I thinking this to deeply.

Just please tell me what you think on this subject!

Thursday Already?

Wow this week has flown by! I think it is the weather! Making me feel like I should be outside doing things, while deadlines are making me feel like I NEED to be downstairs doing something!

I have wrapped up the idea book I have been working on and just need the photo concent contracts signed by some photographers and I am all set to mail the box to the publisher!!

The boys and I have recovered from spring break and are settleing into our routines again!

I still can't figure out how to get to CO for the "Dads" weekend with my family. I can not justify paying 1300.00 in play tickets for 3 days... Still working all that out!

Well spring is in the air, time to tackle some cob webs... LOL
