Praise Him...

...for children who are old enough to watch their younger siblings!!! Jamani came home from Southern this weekend and asked if he could take his brothers out for the day. UMMM....HELL yes!!! John and I have only been out without a child TWICE in our entire relationship...we went to a concert with my sister and brother in law a couple of years ago and we stayed at the Hard Rock cafe a few weeks ago. As soon as Jamani said he wanted the little boys, we planned an impromtu date day! Ya GOTTA take advantage of EVERY opportunity, right? We saw this movie
and we both enjoyed it SO much! John didn't fall asleep ONE TIME so it MUST be really interesting! I wished Ahmad had been with us just to see what to avoid because he's friendly Bob...he talks to EVERYone! If you've seen it, you know that the end is supposed to really inspire you to live and ENJOY life but it just made me sad. We left there and went to Applebee's for dinner. I absolutely LOVE
Artichoke spinach dip! My husband has been promising to make some for me since we MET...do you think maybe I'll get some for Valentine's Day? HMM...guess we'll see! Sorry I didn't take any pix of the food but we were too busy chowing down! Here's a picture of us before we started eating, though
AHHH!!! Young love!
John and I have been together for a few years and from the beginning, he has attended my family's church, the church my Grandfather founded when my Mom was a little girl. Neither of us thought about the fact that he never OFFICIALLY joined the church. Well, starting next week, he'll be a youth teacher so he needed to be a real live member. Since Ahmad had never been baptized, he went up to make his intentions to BE baptized known this morning. Did Mama have the camera in church? OF COURSE she did!
The pix aren't the best because...well, I WAS interrupting the church service. But, our pastor was so tickled that he actually jumped in the shot. Another guy jumped in too after the pastor told him not to. So, if anyone wants to give me a quick Photoshop lesson on deleting an unwanted person from the picture...I'm open!
Well, I have a few more technological issues to smooth out before I take a nap...I have to be fresh to cheer on our boys!!!! If...WHEN the Saints win the Super Bowl, I'm gonna giveaway an AWESOME gift pack...GO SAINTS!!!!

I've only got 2 kids and I appreciate how hard it can be to get some time without them. And I don't know how long it's been since I saw a movie! You've gotta take every opportunity!

And I'm so excited and happy for you that your son is getting baptised. Such an important decision, well made. Congratulations.

What a blessing. I'm praising HIM to. Let Ahmad know that today was the best decision he could have ever made. Miracles and Blessings. God is good all the time! Princess61

OMG I LOVED the book and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie (probably waiting for netflix though). The previews look very different than the book, though? Did you think so? I'm glad it was good...can't wait.

Great pics of you guys and your family.

Jaime Lynne said...

Yep... gotta take advantage and get out when you can.

You're raising your boys right, K! You're a good mommy!

oooo, i wish i had a kid old enough to take the young ones off my hands, lol!! I only have ONE kid, so that doesn't really make sense, but you know what i mean!
so cool that john wants to get baptized! I'm sure there will be lots of pics of him getting baptized soon, right?? lol.
i really want to see that movie, im glad to hear that it was good! :)
oh and to photoshop that guy out of your picture, just use the spot healing brush too. to find out how to use it just google "spot healing brush tool" and there's about 1000 tutorials on how to use it! :) It's pretty simple once ya get the hang of it! It's definitely saved my pictures a time or two. :)
