Fun at the Millsaps

The Millsaps were sweet enough to have us all over last week. The girls had a blast and Susan and I killed at Wii bowling!!

Another Late Post...

Father's Day (which also happened to be Caroline's birthday) was crazy for us!!

On Saturday, we went out to the lake to celebrate with Chris' dad.

On Sunday, we went to church then headed to Cleburne to celebrate with Charlie at the farm.
Then, we went to Chuck E. Cheese to celebrate with my dad. When I asked my dad what he wanted to do for Fathers Day, he said "I want to take Caroline to Chuck E. Cheese." By the tone of his voice I could tell that my attendance was optional...

We finished it all off with some ice cream for the birthday girl!

A Little Late...

My cousin Andrew finally married his favorite girl Jennifer! They have been together FOREVER and we had a blast at the wedding!!

One of my kids gave me a free CD credit on a website as an end of the year gift. I really don't buy many CD's these days because I just buy the songs I want on I Tunes, so I decided to get a greatest hits album where I liked all of the songs. I started browsing and came across Amy Grant's Greatest Hits. I have SO many memories with Amy Grant!! Here are my top 5!

  1. Home for Christmas is for sure in my top 5 favorite Christmas albums! My sister and I sang Breathe of Heaven at the top of our lungs 100's of times!
  2. I remember singing "In a Little While" when I was a small child. I heard it on this new CD and realized that I had been singing pretty much every word wrong all of those years.
  3. I loved the "Lead Me On" video. She was in some sort of canyon and had a great perm! This is still a song I love to sing loud in the car!
  4. The Heart in Motion album has a very special place in my heart. I spent a lot of time on my fireplace hearth making up motions and singing to these songs. "Baby Baby," "Every Heartbeat," "Good for Me," "That's What Love is For," and the list goes on...
  5. My last favorite memory of Amy happened at my 6th grade Preteen Camp. My good friend Lindsey (Coy) Durham and I had practiced for weeks and had meticulously planned outfits so that our talent show performance of "Father's Eyes" would knock their socks off. We tried and out and made it and were selected as the final performance in the show. We got up there and I was a little nervous. I took one look at Lindsey and burst out laughing. Trying to sing while laughing is not a pretty sound. They played all the way through the track because I think they were hoping we could pull it together, but we never did. We laughed through the enitre thing! We made major fools of ourselves, but I still laugh to this day thinking about it.

Am I the only one that has fond memories of Amy??

Thanks to the sweet Hicks family I got to meet Jason Terry tonight! He was so nice, and actually smaller than I thought he'd be...
