If you know my Pappaw and know how he feels about his Cee-gars, you understand how hysterical this picture is and why my mom is cracking up (Isn't that right, Leesburg Church of Christ? - Yeah, I know you're reading this. :) Don't be shy, you can leave comments on here and on his Facebook page. That goes for all of you silent Tot Fans! Let me know you're reading, thinking about, or praying for us - I luuuuuuuuuuuurve comments and it's heartwarming every time someone comes up to me and says they read this blog. It's nice to know I'm not just writing this for myself. So hit the "follow" button over on the right or "like" his facebook page!) Wow, longest parenthetical aside ever.
But speaking of silent Tot Fans - one came up to me on Sunday and told me of something amazing, unexpected, and and so, so gracious that she is orchestrating in January concerning Little! More on that when it gets closer to the date but it's AWESOME! I never expect anything out of others (other than immediate family) for Little, myself, or Mister so when someone interrupts their regularly scheduled program to bless one of us, it blows my mind. I cried halfway through the service! Then my dad decided he'd sing alto with me on one of the songs and the tears were switched into laughter. Laughter in church! Gasp!
Ok so........Thanksgiving, the January thing....what else, what else.... oh! I have pictures that prove Little One is starting to look like me!
This next one has nothing to do with Tot, I just love it. It's me and my brother, Brian.
The other thing is that I finally got a moment to myself. For the first time in 22 months, I had a weekend away! No Little, no Mister - just me and my bff since 6th grade, Brooke. We went to the Razorback game in Fayetteville, AR against Tennessee. It was a blast. And soooooooooo overdue.
I'm hiding a heart monitor under that big ole sweatshirt. I had to do a home monitor for a week and that was the last day. I've also had an EKG, a stress test, and an Echo in the past few weeks to get some baseline stats just in case I am a DMD carrier. Echo technician said I had a "textbook heart". So all's well!
Before the game we searched Senior Walk for my name. I graduated in 2005 but my name was nowhere to be found on that sidewalk. I don't know what year I'm listed on, but we found it on the ground in front of the music building, right before the street intersects with Dickson St, facing Brough. Best sidewalk on campus as far as location - every single person that attends U of A will walk across my name at some point. So many feet (and prolly spilled coffee, spit, gum, maybe worse...) will land on my name.
So that's probably enough for now, right?
NO! NO IT'S NOT! I just realized I never posted his Halloween pictures! How could I neglect to share the world's cutest sock monkey with my readers?????????? For shame!
All I said was to put the candy back in the bowl for the Trick-or-Treaters!
So a belated Happy Halloween and a punctual Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!
