There's an app for that!

You hear that a lot "There's an app for that!" on commercials. But did you know there really IS an app for THAT?
I have been telling Donnie I want a little more romance in the fun department. So he says "Should I turn on some music and light some candles?" I asked him where he was going to get candles, we didn't have any in our room, "Is there an app for that?" I said with some sarcasm. When he was done finding a good music channel on the satellite TV he DID find an app for some romance, lol.

So we had a romantic fire in the "fireplace" on our headboard. Every time I looked at it I had to giggle. Ok, so maybe it isn't actually romantic, but it is really funny.

Never challenge a man with an iPhone.

Only at my house!

Drew and his wife, Jannessa, are visiting our house after Kaytlin and Peter's wedding. So we had a lovely dinner together of meat cake, and even Grandpa joined us for dinner.
While we were enjoying each others company Cody mentions that he has always wanted to play the game from Scrubs where Turk and JD drop their pants around their ankles and the first person to get embarrassed and pull them up loses.

The boys all said they would do it and wouldn't get embarrassed. They were so cocky that I goaded them into actually doing it. So Drew and Cody stand up and drop their drawers AT THE TABLE. Poor Grandpa! They sat back down and started eating. Jannessa was dying, she was right between the two pant-less guys.
Then, out of the blue, Sam stands up and drops his drawers, too! There were a LOT of tears of laughter by this point!
Grandpa didn't take his eyes off his plate anymore, lol.
But then Sam took it to a new level and I had to tell him to put it away, because no one else had that hanging out.
After supper the boys realized that they were both equally matched and it was boring in the house. So Drew and Cody went outside to do yard work with their pants around their ankles. Not. Even. Kidding.
Finally they agreed neither would get embarrassed and pulled them up at the same time. Leaving Sam as the winner, since he still has not put his pants back on!

Another tax deduction bites the dust......

Those were the words that my husband uttered to me the morning after Kaytlin's wedding as we were laying in bed absorbing the quiet after the busy weekend.

I really don't know how we would have ever managed to have such a beautiful wedding if we didn't have so many great, supportive and hard working friends. It wrecks me in the most beautiful way to know what great friends we have!

Kaytlin and Peter are finally married after 2 years of the most beautiful example of purity for their friends and siblings. They shared their very first kiss on the altar! I have never forced that choice on my children, but I have prayed that my kids would have that experience, and God provided a man for Kaytlin who wanted to give her the very best, more pure husband he could give.

They are absolutely gorgeous! (and I can't wait for grand babies with Kaytlin's good looks and Pete's brown eyes! I will be mush!) Their wedding was gorgeous! Their honeymoon is a bit rocky, with a bunch of delays and a car breakdown and 3 days later haven't made it to their honeymoon destination, but they will have great memories.

I am very proud of them, and so very thankful to our amazing friends.

I will post all the fun wedding planning disasters and other pics as I get them loaded on a computer that has internet access.

Happy Mother's Day!

Today my day was made complete when Trinity said the prayer for our steak lunch. Her grandma gave her a book of prayers and she has been reading them and praying. So today she wanted to say a prayer and she picked The Lord's Prayer, which she read with her head down and hands folded.

"Our father who art in heaven, hollowed be they name
They kingdom come, they will be done,
on Earth and as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our tree passes
as we forgive those who tree pass against us.
Lead us not unto temperation and deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
We all giggled and covered our mouths through the whole thing! Totally made my day!
