pushing up daisies...

coming up roses...or something like that!

I'm not quite sure what these flowers are, but I love seeing a new bud at our new house every week. You never know what will spring up!

fancy the faux pas...

Thanks to Linda and Decker for letting us crash at their cute casa this past weekend! We had a great time getting to visit for the short time we were there. However, in that short time, I was able to have a big time laugh.

TREY: watching a TV highlight about the boxing match at Cowboy Stadium "Oh yeah, I forgot about that fight. I wonder how it all went down..."

DECKS: "Who was fighting?"

TREY: "blah and blah" do you really expect me to remember who he said? ha!

DECKS: "Oh. I'm not really sure why I asked that. It's not like I know any of them... except like Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Oscar de la Renta..."

Hahahaaahaaa. Need I say more? To Sarah's defense, she knew what she had said after we all paused in amusement and then roared with laughter. It was quite entertaining. Might I add...I can only bask in this snafu because I've had a few myself...

  1. mixing up Snoop Dogg & Coolio (hey, it could happen to anyone!)
  2. wondering why there were so many Texans to get a Bum Steer award...what about all the other states? ;)
  3. after talking about a 4th of July holiday...asking my college dorm roomy (from North Carolina), "Uh, you guys celebrate that, too...right?"

Ok. That last one was a stinger...not sure I've ever shared that with anyone, but the cat's out of the bag now!

So you can see ~ it was nice to have someone else be the one to flub!

Praises all around...

For Sasha and the Thompson Family.
Yesterday was a huge moment for Keith, Erin & little Isaac,
as they were finally able to rejoice in adding a new big brother to their family.

We have four families in our church that have adopted or are in the process of adopting children from Russia. Many people have been praying a long time for the Thompson's to have an open door. Yesterday, a very nice judge made that happen.

Please click here to read their story. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
