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.

Welcome to our tent...

Tonight Matt and one of his hunting buddies were going to go set up deer stands out in the woods...so it was going to just be me and the kids. Since our houseguest is gone now...(he left today)...I wanted to do something fun with them to help get their minds off the fact that their Beloved Peepaw was gone...so I decided to do something I LOVED from my childhood. Pitch a tent in the living room! When Brooklyn heard "my plan" she was SO excited. She wrapped her arms around me and said she didn't think she could ever let go!

Anyway, we started pulling barstools and sheets into the living room, lots of blankets and pillows for the floor and then made a pizza and salad for dinner. I also rented a cute movie called Buddy from the library for us to watch. Grant ended up only hanging with us for about 10 minutes and then he started feeling icky and went to Grandma's for the evening...so it ended up being just me and my Brookie! We had so much fun "camping" out in our tent eating pizza off paper plates in the floor and watching a movie-just us girls. Mom called about half-way thru the movie and said that Grant had a temp of 102 and he was totally zonked out on the couch. Poor little guy! I gave him some Motrin and put him to bed...so hopefully he'll be feeling better in the morning. There is a nasty stomach bug that is going "around" in our town...but I am believing for it to go right on around us! I hate it when the kids are sick...but plus...we can't afford for any of us to get sick for the rest of this year. We have used up all our insurance benefits for the year and now everything from here on out is out-of-pocket expense. Ick! We've already laid hands on him and prayed for him so I know he will be just fine.

Anyhow, here are a few pics I took. Brooklyn is wearing her new halloween costume that I just got in the mail today off of e-bay. She's going to be an angel this year...so we will be busy in the next few weeks making her some big feathered wings and a halo. Grant also found a costume in one of my parenting magazines that he wants me to make for him. It is a train costume and you make it out of an empty box and some empty oatmeal cartons. We'll see about that...?!? I don't know if I have that much time or creative energy to put something like that together...but I'll give it a try I guess.

What are ya'lls kids gonna be this year?

Kenzie is going to be a Princess again this year...no complaints from me as it's a lot less work for me. HA!
