Coffee Talk 4.15.11

Good Morning Ladies,

It is EARLY here, too early. I got up to have my quiet time only to be interrupted by the tornado sirens. The kids are, of course all now up, and (this is where I get bitter) the storm just got here about 5 minutes ago...after the sirens STOPPED! I know we need to be cautious and all, but really...HOLD OFF ON THE SIRENS UNTIL THE STORM ACTUALLY GETS HERE! I am trying to make lemonade out of the lemons, though and we are going to go ahead and start school...maybe we can be done by lunch today!

Anyway, a house full of kids already up and going means not much time to post so here are the high points of the week:

1. Dancer's fashion show went great. She was so sweet. She got a few "treats" that day. We bought her a pair of shoes to go with the outfit she modeled and after it was over Daddy let her get the outfit and another shirt. Nana bought her a pair of flip flops and then we went to Sonic for drinks. When we got in the car she exclaimed..."This is the best day of my life!"

2. B.B. shot his first turkey of the year...quite a humdinger!

3. The rest of the week has just been the regular school, work and tornado sirens! Ya gotta love Spring in West Tennessee! Tigerteen downloaded some pictures for me off my phone so here are a couple that belonged a few weeks ago...I like to keep you guessing!

This is Spring Break when Dancer and her friend helped make cupcakes. If you are wondering about the scarves...they were playing dress up! These babies were chocolate filled chocolate cupcakes.. I would like to say they were delicious...but they LOOKED pretty!
And here is Tigerteen and his friend-girl (isn't she a cutie!)celebrating his birthday at Nana's may notice that Tigertot felt the need to get in on the action.

Well, I am totally aware of how dull this post is, but since we are all up and going, we might as well get school done so I am off to "encourage" our academics! That is code, by the way, for telling them to get off the phones and ipods and get busy already!

By the way, I have to do a little devotion thing in my Bible Study this week. I know it is silly, but I am super nervous about it and have no idea what to talk about so if you think about it, please say a little prayer that it will just be all about God and He will be glorified and speak through me! Thanks!

Have a great weekend and be sure to check out some far more interesting Coffee Talk at Home Sanctuary.

Love the pics - your kids look so much bigger to me all of a sudden!

And the fashion show outfit is so cute! :)

Bummer for the siren going off. That is a rude awakening but I guess one can never be too careful. =/
1. Sounds/looks like fun.
2. What do you do with all those turkeys?
3. Yes, I have made plenty of things that looks much better than they tasted.
Hope the Bible study goes well.

I love the comment "this is the best day of my life!". . .those are such great words to hear as a parent, aren't they? Especially when it really is just the "little" things that always make their days so special. We don't have tornado sirens going off, but cold, yucky rain here in middle TN. . .I was really getting used to that sunshine and mid-70's-80's weather!
Praying for you and your devo. The Lord will convict you of something. . .I've done "Attitude" (Charles Swindoll) and "Legacy" (Nicole Nordeman) as jumping-off points for devotions in the past.

Wow...what a lovely, active family you have...and that turkey!!! Really enjoyed visiting your blog. I do hope you'll stop by mine and say hello! :)

Saying a prayer for the devotion at your bible small thing to share...hope it goes well.

I'll tell you the same thing I told one of the other Company Girls this week. It's the little things that you post (may seem dull to you) that make me feel connected to you as a fellow Company Girl. Thanks for sharing your week with us. :)

Good luck on your devotion this week. You have such a sweet heart, I know God will bless whatever it is that you bring.


Janet said...

Thanks for sharing all the scenes from your week. I pray your Bible study devotional will go great--no nerves! Just share your heart as you shared your pictures.

Oh, this weather is something! Clint's parents were hit Thursday evening and their home and ranch completely destroyed. It is so sad how quickly our lives can change.

Loved the pictures and can't get over how quickly your "little ones" are becoming "big ones."

I'm enjoying my time in Va. with my Aunt. Happy Sabbath!

Gina said...

Wow! That's a big turkey!

Sorry to hear about the sirens but pleased as punch that you had the best day ever! Praying your devotion is filled with His spirit and glory.

Danyelle said...

What a mess having the sirens wake the kids up early, but hopefully you got some time to yourself toward the end of the day.

I'm so glad her fashion show and day went well, sounds like a great day. And that is one big turkey!
