"A-Nana's and milk"......

No new pic's to post today. Nothing really exciting to blog, but I've been getting flack from a certain few people about not blogging every day (you know who you are) So, here's the day's recap. Got up, checked some emails, got Luke up and gave him some apple juice, Got in the car and ran to Walmart to get some "A-Nana's" for him to eat breakfast. Ran to the post office to ship some ebay stuff. Came home, ate A-Nana's and milk and played a little football in the living room for awhile. Then it was time for lunch so we ate some lunch ravioli's, cheese stix, milk. Time for a nap (just Luke). Got up, played some more. Mommy watched Oprah. Luke drug his lawn mower around the living room and got into drawers in the kitchen he wasn't suppose to. Then when daddy came home we grabbed a bite to eat and went by Nana and Poppa's house to visit them for a little while. There we ran into Uncle, Auntie and Beau Bo. I had fun running around in Poppa's front yard, riding my little John Deere gator and chasing Abby around the yard. Then I came home and mommy and daddy put me to bed for the night. Now it's time for mommy and daddy to retire and get some shut eye. Will write again tomorrow, ok people!

I almost forgot. Last night Jason and I went to Charles' memorial in Denison. What a fitting tribute to a wonderful, Godly man. It was held at a Bed and Breakfast, it was a celebration of his life, there was no mourning. We were happy that Charles finally had his angel wings. He was cremated and they had a beautiful wooden urn with his cremains. It was low key, simple and beautiful. Lots of people turned out to pay their respects. He would have been so proud. Funny, how shortly before he died he told Heather he didn't even want a memorial because he didn't think anyone would come. Boy was he wrong. Easily 100+ people showed up. Charles, we'll miss you but we know that you're in a better place. Thank you for teaching us what true faith is all about. I ran across this verse today that I feel is fitting for Charles. It is: When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous. Such people will not be overcome by evil circumstances. Those who are righteous will be long remembered. They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly. Psalms 112: 4, 6-8 NLT
