bring it on!

That’s just me talking to my day. Zoo Trip Departure Day tends to overwhelm me, so I laid it all out for God this morning. Pretty much, “I can’t do this, God. I need you. You know how I am. See? I need you. Please order my day. Help me make wise choices. And not burn the cookies I’m making for Gail. I love you. My day is yours. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

The girls and I met my parents at the Opening Night of the Zoo Lights last night. (Gabe was out of town for 2 days. I didn’t mention it on here–stalkers, you know. But my He-Man is back, so bring it on.) It was so, so, so pretty! And very cold. We got there a little after 5:00, after some stand-still traffic on 270. It started snowing right away, and it was beautiful. Big, white flakes against millions of lights. All the lighted trees with a soft dusting of snow. Sigh. They have a new light show set to music over the lake (pond?). Very, very, very cool. But did I mention it was really cold? And my girls were hungry. We lasted almost 2 hours before heading to Wendy’s for warm things like chili. (and frosties for everyone but me–yuck) Thanks for a fun night, Mom and Dad!

Okay, off I go to pack things and bake things and wash things! Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Tennessee, here we come!

    You’re welcome, honey!  Dad and I had a great time, too!  It really WAS beautiful, especially with the snow!:)  Glad your man is home!  Did he tell you about calling us and figuring out where we were on the way home, and then flashing his lights as he went by?  That was so cool!  I still can’t quit smiling about that!:)  Have a great safe weekend, honey!  Love you!:)

    You absolutely do NOT have to make me cookies. And I’m not slaving over the house for you guys, but I am very excited about some progress on the neverending projects to show you! Some facts:

    *Twins are definitely going to be at a sleepover. My apologies to Livi and Ava.

    *Josie is wild today. My apologies to everyone.

    *I’m expecting you around 8:00. Is that still accurate?
