This precious little guy

and his little brothers spent Monday afternoon with us while Shelli organzied yardsale items. I took the three of them to the new house for a little while. They love to run up and down the stairs and play in our big backyard. Dylon took a break from playing to run over to me and say,

"Mimi, I love your new house.....I think it's beautiful."

Then he ran off to play some more, and I cried because I love him and he is so beautiful.

Kelly's Corner & Interview with the Twins

This morning Kelly, from Kelly's Corner, mentioned Shelli's blog in her post! How exciting is that?! Kelly's blog is quite famous for her prayer requests and praises. I'm so glad that the Lord led her to lift up Dylon today.

This morning I asked Dylon and Houston a few questions about some of their favorite things.

  • What is your favorite toy to play with?

Houston: "A dog toy."

Dylon: "A monster truck."

  • What is your favorite drink?

Houston: "I love tea."

Dylon: "I love milk."

  • What is your favorite food?

Houston and Dylon: "Pizza!"

  • What is your favorite color?
Houston: "Green."

Dylon: "Red."
  • What is your favorite movie?
Houston and Dylon: "Thomas the Tank Engine."
  • Who is your best friend?

Houston: "Dylon is my best friend."

Dylon: "Ummm, Laeton Reid is my best friend."

Then Houston changed his best friend to a boy named Xander, and the interview was pretty much over.

The Coolest People I know

Today my brother John and his better half Alyson are coming for a visit. They are really neat people. I wish I were as creative, spontaneous, and brave as they are. They've left their home in Lincoln, Nebraska, sold most of their belongings, quit their jobs, saved lots of money, and are setting out to see the world. They should arrive sometime tonight and will be here for about 2 weeks before they fly out to their first destination, Trinidad and Tobago. Alyson's parents own a sailboat there.
I should visit them!

They plan to spend a few months sailing, which is a passion of theirs. Sounds nice, except I get seasick just laying on a float at the beach. They don't know where they will go next. Perhaps another country, or maybe they'll return to the states. We're hoping this time they'll be closer than Nebraska.

I'm so looking forward to spending time with them, and laughing until I cry. My brother is the only person on earth who can always make me laugh no matter what.

They have a blog at :

John and Aly,
I will be praying for you on this journey.
I hope you have an amazing adventure.
I hope you learn a lot about yourself and each other.
I hope you make wonderful once in a lifetime memories.
I hope you think about getting your sister a souvenir:)!
I hope you remember to take lots of pictures.
I hope you remember to blog often.
I hope you remember to call home or email so mom doesn't have a stroke.
I hope you remember how much we all love y'all!
Have fun!!

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs
and returns home to find it.

April Showers

I hope everyone is staying safe in this terrible weather. I'm beginning to feel like I live in Forks. (Twilight reference for those of you who haven't read them). They were great books! Last night I started The Shack. Has anyone read it?

I want to share a couple of blogs of folks I'm praying for.

The first blog belongs to Brittany Mikel Daniel. She's from Andalusia, and we actually went to preschool together. She now lives in Montgomery. She went in to premature labor while on a business trip to Washington, D.C. Now she is there until her baby boy is born. Her husband has joined her, but their young son is staying in AL with family. Please pray for them!

Do any of you read Darby or Erika's blogs They're twin sisters, and both of them have great blogs! This morning Erika's husband experienced a head injury, and they are in need of prayers. You can read more about the situation on Darby's blog.

Check out Erika's blog too. She is a great designer. I've gotten lots of ideas for the house from her site.

Everyone stay safe!!
