One of my favorite things: popcorn

While Michael was on hisgolf outing with the guys, the kids and I decided to have a movie night. Bath time was followed by comfy "jammies" and the popcorn...a little someone I know REALLY enjoyed himself! Like father, like son!

Happy Birthday, Husband!

The forecast was predicted to be rather dreary outside today, so instead of going golfing with Michael on his birthday (trying my best to keep my composure and not embarrass him by throwing a fit on the greens when I swing and whiff...for the fifth time), we opted to spend the day as a family. We headed to the Science Center in our great city of Detroit or as Kate calls it, the "moo-zeum". The kids were fabulous and we all truly enjoyed the outing...especially the dinos. Quick lunch at the infamous Slow's BBQ and back home again we went.

The morning was relaxing, fun and filled with new discoveries...the afternoon was as well, in it's own special way. Michael desperately wanted to take a nap with the kids, but postponed it to get new tires on our car and stop by the store to pick up a gallon of milk. Upon his return we were all up from our naps and had found large soggy puddles of water in the basement. So instead of the much needed nap, he ran to Home Depot for a shot vac and dehumidifier to clean up the basement wetlands. While he was cleaning, the kids and I run out to get him some amazing gelato for his birthday dessert...just as everything was cleaned up and the kids were settling to go to bed, I drop the new gallon of milk he had purchased earlier in the day and a tsunami of white took over the kitchen floor. Good thing he had that shot vac! Thanks to my dear husband's balance in life and good sense of humor, he just started laughing, got out his phone and "documented" the great disaster.

For now the house is quiet and at peace. All said and done, I would not have wanted to spend my day with anyone else!

Michael, in some ways it seems crazy that you have been my Special Someone for 9 years...then again, it seems as if you have always been a part of my life!

I love you more than I could ever express.

Your friendship is treasured beyond compare.

I would chose YOU again and again, for ever and ever.

Thank you for being mine! Happy 31st, Michael!

operation world

At the end of the book Radical (which every believer should read!), the author, David Platt challenges the reader to pray for the entire world in one year. He mentioned an organization called Operation World which can be found at operationworld.org. Pretty cool resource which highlights one nation every day for which to pray. It includes stats on the population, the culture, religion, etc.

Awesome site.
Awesome challenge.

John 14:6

Michael and I had a conversation weeks ago about needing to commit more scripture to memory. So why not make it a family goal, a way of life that simply is how we do things around here...This is how Kate responded.
