A Creed Funny

or proof that while he may look like his daddy, he does have some of my genes too.

He asked me if he could have a treat because his unders were dry. I said, "Sure but I don't know what you are going to have." Jack suggests a chocolate chip, but I said there weren't any so Creed asks, "Are there any crumbs?"

an hour later and I am still laughing.

A Creed Funny

For supper tonight, we had chicken, rice and broccoli with a little cheese on top. Creed had two of his trains with him at the supper table and announced, "My trains are going to eat my broccoli and I am going to eat the cheese!"

Mississippi Weekend Part I

Last weekend we traveled to Bay St. Louis, MS to visit our friends Mark and Robin and so Jon could baptize their youngest daughter Lucy. We have known Mark and Robin for 11 years now. I believe it was the first Sunday at Grace Pres in Starkville that Robin came up to me and said, "Hi! I am Robin. I"d be happy to babysit for you!" Those are music to a young momma's ears!
Anne Michal was 3 and Elizabeth was 1 at that point. Robin and Mark logged many hours at our house and all of us have fond memories of all the time we spent together. Jon married them and Anne Michal and Elizabeth were flower girls. Emma was just 10 days old! I still clearly remember the day we brought Jack home from the hospital. I was sitting at the table eating dinner and Mark and Robin were sitting on the couch holding Jack. Robin asks, "Will you all keep our baby in the fall while we go to the football games?" It was a very happy surprise. Sam was their firstborn followed by Katie, Nathan and now Lucy. Jon has had the privilege of baptizing all but Nathan. The following are pictures from the weekend minus the beach pictures which are still yet to come.

We passed this on the way to the church. The kids wondered what it was and it kind of looked like a dungeon. I wish you could see the door better, but it is all that is left of a bank following Katrina...the vault.
The Steven's family
Us outside the church.You could see the ocean from the sanctuary which was pretty cool.
Emma, Katie, and Elizabeth. Emma and Katie were inseparable. Emma cried the first 4-5 hours of the trip home because she had such a good time with Katie. I guess we need to borrow a 4 yr old girl every now and then!
Jon baptizing Lucy. It was a great weekend and I am grateful they included us!

P.S. This post makes me feel old!
