Hmm, What the heck?, How do ya?, and so forth...

You'd laugh if you could see me trying to figure out what surely is a simple task...  upload photos from Flickr to this blog... you know, as many as I want... where I want... to make something beautiful and interesting for you like my supremely talented and gorgeous dear friend over at FreshMommy.  Until I succeed, enjoy this completely random photo taken from my Flickr account and mysteriously inserted into my blog.  I love you Makenzie! (beautiful creature pictured at left).

Um... spiritual lesson and interesting story?  I implore you to accept my humble IOU.

And yes, FreshMommy, that was a plea for help:)  Love you.

The musician

A picture is worth a thousand words... and I have two.  This is my longest blog entry to date :)

Make the best of today.

New Year, New Season season of Lu's favorite show that is.  Top o' the evening everyone.  I truly hope you all had a wonderful time bringing in the New Year.  We spent it rolling with laughter while watching a couple of episodes of "I Love Lucy" as requested by a lovely blonde who bears the same name.
We had intended to do the whole kiss and cheer bit, however, my cell phone alarm went unnoticed at midnight , completely drowned out in the delightful mix of my firstborn's gleeful squeals and Desi Arnaz's cuban outbursts. (Sometimes it's really funny to listen to Ricky fly off the handle when you understand what he's saying... often he's just babbling Spanish nonsense. - Now you know.)  Noticing the clock read 12:07 as the credits (Note:  Max Factor was the makeup artist for the show... just some useless trivia for a moment when you need to sound like you know something interesting. - You're welcome.)  rolled down the screen, (Don't you just love when I insert stuff in parenthesis and you have to go back and start reading the original thought all over again?)  Michael and I uttered a mild, "Oops, oh well", attempted to reach each other for a quick kiss, and discovered that after snuggling with sixty-six pounds of children on our laps for an hour, parts of our bodies were too asleep for that kiss to take place, and it just wasn't worth the effort in our state of exhaustion. (We generally have a nine-thirty bedtime... Don't scoff, we're still young on the outside.)
We happily tucked the tot's in for the night and thanked God for them, and the beautiful blank canvas of 2011 that will soon be adorned with new memories, relationships, and nations who have been made freshly aware of the Love of Christ.

Happy 2011!

I'd love to read about how YOU brought in the New Year.  Let me know in a comment below.

Much love,
