This song is so amazing.
I have listened to it over and over and I still love it...my little one is learning the words now too!

Captivated - Shawn Mcdonald

When I look into the mountains I see your fame
When I look in to the night's sky it sparkles your name
The wind and the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high
That's what draws me to you

I am captivated
By you
In all that you do
I am captivated

When I wake unto the morning it gives me your sight
When I look across the ocean it echoes your might
The sand on the shore and the waves in the sea
The air in my lungs and the way you made me
That's what draws me to you

I am captivated
By you
In all that you do
I am captivated

The wind and the clouds and the blue in the sky
The sun and the moon and the stars so high
The sand on the shore and the waves in the sea
The air in my lungs and the way you made me

The blood in my veins and my heart you invade
The plants how they grow and the tree and their shade
The way that I feel and love in my soul
I thank you my god for let me know about you about you

So my beautiful nearly 3 year old is ALMOST potty trained....we got the peepee down really well..

Now I know a lot of kids are SCARED of going poopies on the potty, but she's not. She's done it and get's all proud and excited...but the only time she does it is if I catch her in time to get her there....otherwise it's in her big girl undies or her pull up (whatever she has on at the time)....SHE WON'T TELL ME WHEN SHE HAS TO GO POOPIES!

She's very VERY very smart...I know she knows what to do...but why won't she do it.

Normally I wouldn't stress and I'd let it happen when it happens...but I have less than 6 weeks until she starts 3 year old pre-school and she is NOT ALLOWED to wear pullups...she MUST BE POTTY TRAINED AND IN BIG GIRL UNDIES....

WHAT DO I DO???? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Call Me a Jerry's Kid

Lots of people loathed him...BUT A TON OF PEOPLE LOVED HIM....

I went to the High School...I went to the college...I went to the Church....
He was my pastor.

I have read it in so many places but I will say it here....many knew him as controversial....but if you lived there...YOU HAD A FUNNY STORY ABOUT HIM! He was a very VERY funny man...he didn't travel in a limo, he drove a suburban...he didn't have 3 wives....he had 1 wife and they just celebrated 49 years in April...he had 3 children and 8 grandchildren. They were all part of our community.

When I was in high school and college you would see him around and he was always joking and messing around. He loved to make people laugh. You weren't required to call him Doctor, or Pastor, or Reverend...Jerry would do just fine...and he got a kick out of it if you said "HEY JERRY!!!!!!!"....


He would come to the Liberty basketball games and CHEER and YELL and STAND UP....

He wasn't a "televangelist"....he was a pastor of a church whose services were broadcast on TV....that was my church...just like any other church...I went to my youth service and then sat in the balcony for "big church"...every Sunday... kids played outside and ran around....we had a big picnic every year...it is a REAL CHURCH with REAL PEOPLE....not a TV studio.

He was my pastor.

He was a Godly man who felt his convictions at his core and wanted to see the world Saved...he loved people, even those he disagreed with....and those people he disagreed with are mourning too...

It was a shock to hear about this yesterday. Someone like him, who's been in your life for so long and who is so important just seems like they will always be around....it almost takes your breath away.

So today I am mourning the passing of my Pastor an awesome man of God...

Hokie Hope Day

Hey guys. I just wanted to share this with you guys in case your interested in participating and showing support. I am from Virginia and have had friends that attended VaTech and graduated from there. But even if you have no connection, I think it's still amazingly important to show some form of support for the people of Blacksburg and around the country who have lost someone. We will never know or understand the horror and pain they must be going through and can only pray that the Lord will be with them and comfort their hearts through this difficult time.
Wear orange and maroon tomorrow in support of the families and victims from Virginia Tech.

Hello Out There!!!!!!

I can't believe its been a month since I've blogged!!!

Everything is great here with us.

I'm potty training the little one...yes...potty training. We are going slow...at her pace. She's actually doing great.

My oldest is playing softball and loving it. The weather has been beautiful and she's enjoying spending time outside and having fun.

My allergies are KILLING ME. The doctor gave me Singular and Nasonex plus I tried some Claritan...to no avail. Last year Allegra worked for me so she is giving me some to see if it works again. If I can just make it to her office without my eyes closing up.

I hope you all are great. I try to visit your blogs but I only do it a couple times a month.

I'm still busy with 2 days of gymnastics, 2 days of bible study and working hard to keep a clean house and make good dinners.

I'll try to blog more often (I think I've said that before)....I miss talking to you guys regularly!

Stop in and leave a comment if you have a sec just to say hi. I'll try to do the same.

In the meantime...here are some recent pics.

The Oldest...and her new favorite shirt....
