II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

matt -n- jen 4-ever

Last night my parents babysat the kids while Matt and I went on a DATE! Woo-hoo! It's been a loooooong time since we've gotten to spend any time together--just the two of us. We went out to dinner at El Chico and then saw the new Adam Sandler movie, Click. I ordered tortilla soup for my dinner (which wasn't very good--but I am trying to watch my calories). After dinner, we ran to the dollar store and got some candy to eat during the movie. I was craving twizzlers but Gosh! they are fattening. One serving (4 of them) has 130 calories. The bag I got had 5 servings and I could have easily eaten the whole bag which would have been 650 calories!!!!! WOWSERS! Thankfully I limited myself to only 4 (and a couple Raisonetts)(sp?) Anyway, the movie was really cute. It was hilarious in parts and then intensley sad in other parts. It ended happy though (which is very important to me). If a movie ends sad, I end up feeling depressed for the rest of the night....if it ends romantic, well then I'm feeling romantic and if was a confusing or stressful movie, I am usually exhausted afterwards. I guess I get REALLY into movies when I watch them. I tend to analyze them for hours afterwards too. As a matter of fact, this particular movie Click, had me re-thinking lots of things. It certainly puts a new perspective on the way you live your life. Go see it, you'll enjoy it. Well, at the moment, Grant and Matt are napping, Brooklyn is watching TV and I am working. (okay, well I was until I started this post-ha ha) If there are some of you out there who don't know what I "do", I type medical transcription for a podiatrist (foot doctor). It's an awesome job but can get pretty boring after about an hour of in-grown toenails, warts and calluses. (nasty, I know!) Anyway, tonight our little town is having their Independence Day Celebration and we are all planning on going. It should be fun. There will be jupiter jumps, face painting, a petting zoo and much more, then at dusk there will be a 30 minute fireworks display. I am looking foward to it. Oh by the way, I got my camera sent off to be repaired. It will probably be 2 weeks before I get it back, but then I will finally get to share pictures with you all again! Yay!! Have a great Saturday night!

That's good! Glad you guys got to go on a date! I understand about not having much time for just you two. Even though we don't have kids full-time, we are extremly busy all the time! It seems like when it's just our week we are doing something all the time...then the next week we have the kids...It never ends!!! LOL!
