Is it Monday already?
We had a great weekend celebrating Grandma Hughes' 90th Birthday! It was great to see all the family again! Ginger and the kids spent the night with us on Saturday night and I am very happy to report that Ginger made it to EARLY Church service! (We had to tease her!) Nancy and Grace came out Saturday night for pizza after the big party and the girls enjoyed playing together.
Cody's football team won the championship this weekend, which ended his Bantam Football career. He is growing up so fast! Next year it will be onto Freshman football! He went to a hayride with the youth group last night and had a great time. He had to be at basketball practice this morning at 5:30 a.m. and he was none to pleased when the alarm clock went off!
Kensey Rae went to a sleepover this weekend and had a great time. She has been busy with basketball this week and that schedule will continue until July 2008, so we had better get used to it!
Richard worked Saturday, but hopefully that will becoming to an end soon as winter is around the corner which usually means no Saturday workdays. Keeping our fingers crossed!
I wanted to post the new school pictures....Cody as the "I am too cool for school" look and Kensey Rae has the "who me?" look.....:~)
Good question! I am a woman who is married to my high school sweetheart. Richard and I are working on 19 years of marriage and have two great kids- Cody and Kensey Rae. They are surely a reminder that God's blessings flow from heaven above! I am a woman who desires to have it all together, but rarely does. I love to spend time with family and friends and find that my favorite memories are those that are just simple days of being together. Over the last year I have discovered that maybe God is in more control than I am- who would have thought? I have also discovered that apparently I am becoming my mother, and that I tend to lose my sunglasses that are on my head and the keys that I am carrying around in my hand. Contentment is a good thing and something I needed to learn and simple isn't all that bad. I have a faithful Lord who has in my life--carried me, held me, walked with me, chased me down, comforted me, blessed me, disciplined me, forgiven me, gave me "the look", cried for me, cried with me, laughed with me, listened to me, taught me, fought for me, and loved me. Thank you Jesus, for just being you.
I am certain I didn't do a thing to deserve this blessed life, but I am so thankful I have it!
