pic of the day - day 28

I know that I have not been doing as well with this pic of the day, but I realize now my life is not as exciting as I thought...I mean I had good idea for pics of the day, but nothing happened during this month.

Anyway...tonight my sister Mary got to come to church with me. When she visits, she usually goes to church with my parents or her in-laws church. It was really nice to have her visit with me tonight.

As we get older, we have become not just sisters, but friends. I love her!

Pic of the day - day 21

During the drama tonight, I got sprayed with silly string...later the skit, the boy who sprayed me dresses up like a mummy and tries to scare me. I scream and pretend to hit him. I got him on the ground and got a shot of it. Hope you enjoy...

pic of the day - day 18

first day of VBS....and first battle scar. Was counting pencils that were just sharpened. Crazy how a pencil can stick into a person's hand. It hurt like crazy and my friends just laughed...I laughed and cried...began another break down. I will survive this week though.

pic of the day - day 16

Well...I haven't been posting any pics of the day...mainly because I have been very busy getting the power point ready for Sunday mornings dedication service for VBS...last night I got the timing completed, so I took tonight off. I went to Camden Park with two of my sisters and their kids. We had a blast, but I'm beat. I almost got sick...which wasn't good...but we did have a good time. Here is a pic of me with the niece and nephews that went tonight.

Video of the day...Day 12

Okay, so I have changed things a bit. I'm actually going to have a video of the day for today's picture of the day...since my friend actually posted on facebook, I feel it's okay to share with you. Even though the video is of me, we are going to have a power point of the VBS decoration construction for our dedication this Sunday. I wasn't sure if she was going to wait to show it then or if she was going to post it before the dedication.

One late night (or possibly early morning, I was painting and listening to my ipod. Playing on it, was "Veggie Tales Rocks." My favorite song is Skillet singing "Stand Up" from Rack, Shack and Benny. Love this version of the song...well, I was singing it while painting and my friend asked me to sing it again. What I didn't know was that she was recording me...hope you enjoy it...

Pic of the day - day 11

So I missed a day...sorta. I didn't get home Friday night to upload, so I used Friday with Saturday too. Here is the pic of the day for today. The past two nights have been a BIG push to finish VBS decorations. Last night / this morning was doing the finishing touches. We got it all completed except for the water in the fountains, but before the evening service I was able to get the water to finish it.

Here is the final product...we think we have topped last year.

Pic of the day - Day 7

The picture of the Day is of my nephew David. This is him on the third day of the roof project. I think we wore him out. He was a little upset that I posted this, but it was so funny.

Pic of the day - Day 6

Day 2 of the roof project...these guys worked really hard, but they were on a break at this point of the day. It reminds me of a picture during the mission trip to Mexico I took. It brought back memories of that trip. These men and boys are a blessing to my family. I'm thankful to call several of them family members.

pic of the day - day 5

Pic of the day - hamburgers to be made into chicken nuggets.
So we have this work crew working on our roof, and last night my parents church had a picnic and left over food....they gave the food to my parents to feed our workers. We had three packs of these hamburgers left over. Well, my sister Mary says to us that we could reuse them. Becky agrees and says "yes, you can crumble them up and make sloppy joes." My brother-in-law Kessinger says, "maybe we can make chicken nuggets" because that is what my three nephews eat everywhere they go out to eat. Well, Mary picks up on this and says, "yeah, I can make them into chicken nuggest for you." My sister Becky who is literal with everything that is said, gets this confused look on her face and says, "you can't make hamburgers into chicken nuggest." Mary says, "yeah, I can do that." Becky really didn't get it as a joke...even with us all laughing. So funny!
We love Becky though. She's just so much fun to tease with...

Pic of the day - day 4 is official, the hanging of the back drop for VBS has happened. That means we are only down to one week to get the rest of the decorations up. It's going to be crazy, but I think we will be able to do it. Here's a picture of the finish product.

Pic of the day - day 3

My sister Leah was able to meet up with me today. She brought my birthday presents. One of my nephews picked out the skull (it's a change purse) - I have a skull and cross bones on my bowling ball. It was funny that he saw it and "just had" to get it for me. The two penguins are from her old collection. She used to collect penguins and now they are just in the building. The watch is a "gift with purchase"...funny how she had to explain why she got the gifts for me. She also got me a ticket to see Mercy Me in August. That is my "real" birthday gift.

My niece and I completed the My Trainer Bob strength DVD tonight. It is very intense, but we both survived. My sister did the cardio DVD this morning. I think she was really kicked her butt.

Pic of the day

My sister is coming to visit for a month. She's gonna try these workouts with me....maybe she will help me get motivated again. Can anyone say ouch???

Next week some of my family will be working on my parents roof. My brother is calling it "raise the roof party." Cracks me up.
