You want to write children's books, what would your first one be?
Simple, about a little boy named Aaron. He meets a monkey and they talk about Jesus. Monkeys are notorious for acting a little crazy so Aaron explains to Jack that humans are also crazy but we can ALL be redeemed thru Jesus.
Sounds like a best seller huh? Now if I can get my artist bro in law to illustrate we might get this thing going. Love you Les. Thanks for being my BFF!

100% Cottam asked
1. What is your dream job?
Hmmm I'd say that most people would say I'm lucky enough to have it now. I'm a stay at home mom that also gets to work at what I am trained in too. I'm a hairdresser and I still get to dabble in it every week and make a little money at the same time. God has truly blessed us with a house that allows me to work in the garage to make people even more beautiful. Nothing like a good ole garage haircut to make a girl feel better.
My dream job however would be to own my own dayspa!!!
2. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I love home now but I would have to say Texas would be my next choice so we could be with our best friends. Love you Les & Jas!
3. If you could change one thing about you what would it be?
That's easy!!!! But I have to say 2 things. My weight and my legs!!!Yukko. When you go from once being a runner to not excercising hardly ever, nuf said. Can you say lumpy city?
Thanks soooo much for making me feel special by asking these Nat. I was so excited to hear from you.
As for the rest of you, I still love ya!!!! And I'm still waiting.

During this time I can tell you that I am so in love with my husband and his heart that I get gushy just thinking about it. I know - YUK! but it's how I feel. He has stepped up for our Pastor and his family like you can't imagine. I thank God for Wayne everyday, even on the days I don't like him very much. At times like this I see why God gave him to me. He's so strong and I'm so weak. Wayne got the short end of the stick as far as I'm concerned. I love you W.B.
Rest in Peace Sammy (aka Herbie ) we will miss you and love you always. We'll meet you again soon. Until then the sky is UNC blue just for you.

This year after we left from Dad's, we took a drive around town to look at Christmas lights. The kids always enjoy this. Well except for the oldest I guess because he was snoring as we were looking around. I had litterally hollered at him to wake up and ENJOY THIS! :)
So when we finally make our way home, it's time to open our new pj's, get Santa's snack ready and read Small One together. If you haven't ever read this story, you really need to check it out. After lots of convincing, it's time for everyone to go to bed and wait for the arrival (hopefully) of lots of goodies from the big man in the red suit. Goodnight :)

Sorry I forgot to flip the picture! This is what we did the kids first day on break. Cookies!!!!!! and I do mean cookies. I made Gingersnap for the first time for my sweet hubby. I must say they were good and I'm not a fan. We did peanut butter, choc chip, preacher cookies and did I say preacher cookies? They're mine and the son's fave. Yummmmo!
This was only part of the mess, I mean fun.
The first batch of Ginger Snaps.
Some magic cookie bars- Weight Watcher style. No I'm not on WW I just thought it was a good idea to mkae something with half the fat. For the record, no one ate any except for me and my cousin Josh :)Ahhhh, the Preacher cookies. I don't know why they are called that but he must've been a good preacher. I sear my son could eat a batch of these a day. He has asked for them on a daily basis before.
So while the cookies were baking this is what the boogers did. PLAYDOH! Yep even the 17 year old played and played. What is it about that stuff that makes us all happy. Perhaps it the creativity that comes out. He's such an awesome big brother to even think about playing with them. Must be why they love him so much :)
