So what you read is what you get I suppose....like i said yesterday, its all a ruckus up yonder (in my brain) so I'm just writing what I'm thinking.....
So I did it, yep i purchased my copy of "twilight" HOLD THE PHONE???
Yes, I read.
And if you think it's unchristian like to read a vampire book well then your unchristian like for judging me ;)
THERE i said it. Its okay for me to enjoy a fantasy book every now and again....especially when its as good as this one.....And I am strong enough in my faith that I'm not gonna go get my teeth filed pointy or stay indoors for years just so i can get that pale skin and sunken in eyes.....i promise I'm not gonna go all vampiress on you!!
Anyway back to my point....I bought the book mainly cause i want to know what all the hype is about.....and i love "The Lost Boys" so why not. Its super good.....but I'm gonna have to read it slowly cause i barely have enough time to think these days.....SO don't spoil it for me people!!!
Then there is Amy,
Amy is one of my bestest friends, I have known her since my JR year in high school. This is us our senior year on Halloween!! She has meant the world to me over the years and shes been through alot with me....now, shes going to be a mommy!!! Tomorrow she will be induced and we will all get to meet Savannah Beth. I am so excited i can hardly stand it....although i am slightly perturbed that outta my three best friends I'm the only one without a girl!!!! Darn yall!! J/K
I am sooo blessed to have her in my life, she is going to be an AMAZING Mom!!! When she is here with the boys they are practically glued to her. She loves to read to them and sometimes brings them treats like coloring books and plastic eggs filled with candy on Easter. I cant wait to meet her and quench my need to buy girly baby clothes!!
Please, if you think of her tomorrow (Tuesday) say a prayer that everything goes smoothly!!
Speaking of prayer....Jason and I are in need of it.
Jason started a new job at KB homes not to long ago....the details could take me days to write down, but its not going very well, and it really has nothing to do with the economy. Its the position he is in until a neighborhood opens up to him. I have never seen my husband struggle the way he is currently. It has made him feel inadequate and that is a lie!! He is one of the best sales men I've ever met.....they are just running a horribly managed Home Finding Center.
It is killing me to see him stressed and feeling like he can't provide.
Please pray for God's provision in our lives or at least the recognition there of.....
It is an everyday struggle to put my trust in Him that HE has a plan, and this is part of it.
I prayed peace over my sweet husband this morning, wouldn't you know my daily inspirational email that i get everyday was about grace and peace.....I love how God works......he whispers "I'm here" juuuust when I'm needing it.
That is all for today folks.....

I have soo much to write about i don't even know where to begin.
This is precisely why i haven't written anything, like I've said before, there is soo much up there, i cant quite get it organized enough to make sense. But I thought "what the heck" ill just start typing....what you read is what you get i suppose....
First thing that comes to mind is that my son is a genius....okay I'm an over excited mom....he hasn't quite reached "genius" status yet, but to one day reach that level wouldn't be much of a stretch.....for me at least.
Logan is a very handsome, sensitive, smart child. He just got his first report card of the semester and made all E's except for in one subject..... he has made a one hundred on all his spelling tests, except one (that was totally my fault cause we didn't study the night before) and they have spelling tests EVERY Friday, he is in AR (accelerated reading) and when we had a conference with his teacher she said he is already reading well into second grade reading but can only test to that point, and wouldn't be surprised if he was reading well beyond second as well. She has sent him home with homework different from all the other children, and she is considering putting him into GT. I couldn't be more proud. :)
He plays soccer, but mommy and daddy have had to come to terms with the fact that he is not all that into soccer....we asked that he finish this year out, and he has asked to do something more musical in the spring....WHAT A SHOCK ;) (for those of you who don't know me all that well...i sing, Jason sings and plays guitar and my dad sings, plays guitar, and drums, my mom can sing and play piano, and many other family members have musical talent as well)
The other day he and I had a "come to Jesus talk", i was livid with him because although he could quite possibly be the sweetest child on earth, he has a hard time dealing with the word no. I about pull my hair out 500 times a day from this particular issue. If i say no, he continues to ask over and over again until smoke comes out my ears....like in the cartoons from when we were young ins..... :) Anyway, later that evening after bath time I got them in their jammie's and let them get in my bed and watch "The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl" anyway, he turns to me and says:
"Mom, I'm very sorry for my behavior over the last few days" What the....?? I don't even talk like that!!! It just made my heart melt. I don't know if i could ever express to him the amount of joy that he brings to my life. He is a delight. He brightens my day, everyday. And without him, i don't know where I would be.
Then there's Batman,
I mean Landon Ray,
I love that his middle name is Ray, one because he is named after one of my favorite people in the whole world...my pi paw Heston Ray. But also because it describes him to a T. He is a ray of sunshine....he can make me smile in the worst of moods....
He runs when I'm trying to change his diaper, his clothes, or wash his face full of pb n j....
He gets outta his chair a thousand times during lunch just to peek around the corner at me and say "hi momma"
He hits his lil hands down in his lap and crosses his arms like an Indian when he is mad....sometimes adding in the phrase "heeeey, its not faiiir"
He loves to play hide in seek with daddy....but cant wait to be found 99% of the time :)
Boy can he scream when he is mad....but i can usually make him laugh anyway.....
He's got the most BEAUTIFUL eyes and longish brown baby curls and his laugh will make you like puddy in the palm of his hands or have you wrapped around his pinkie.
He can count to 20, knows all his colors and shapes and a million different songs including the abc's, we are currently learning the actual letter (what it looks like) but most of the time he is too busy building a castle or tower to look at the block and the letter on the block....he is all boy. You hand him a ball of any sort and he will throw or kick it across the room. He is tough as nails, he once fell down a flight of stairs and got right up, kissed me on the forehead and took off....mommy on the other hand sobbed for hours and daddy had to come home from work to calm her down ;).
He is my ni ni, my lil ray of sunshine.
He and his brother have their moments, but for the most part they love each other more than life its self. The other night Logan woke up screaming, when i came to his room (he and Landon share a room) i noticed him looking over at Landon and then laying back down content. When i approached him half awake and my heart beating outta my chest he was sweating profusely...i assured him i was there and when i noticed he was calm i made my way back to bed.
The next morning when i ask what he dreamt about, he wouldn't say for some time, when he finally was able to compose himself, he said that he dreamt of his brother being stuck in a fire.....he then began to cry and walked over to Landon and wrapped his arms around him and kissed his lil forehead.
I am soo proud to have these two beautiful, sweet, smart, loving children in my life. And i thank God for them everyday!!!
My Boys Prince Caspian and Batman!!
That's all for now, ill be back i promise!!
