Family Day

Greetings and Holykisses,

We had so much fun yesterday! And Myguy never did suspect that I'd even made his favorite cake. Think I used a half a can of febreeze, and the three smell-good candles worked perfectly. Although when he came inside from workin on his truck he said right away, "Man it smells GOOD in here!" I pointed straight to the candles and said, "Boy they sure do don't they?!" Inside I shrunk a little... The candles did smell really good, but I knew underneath; the man was really smellin: decadent chocolate with that hint of twangy buttermilk.

After morning service, the kids met us and we headed to Fort Smith together, to the Outback; our favorite place to eat (for fancy anyhow) and it sure was good. We feasted there, then hit Harbor Freight and the mall, and took the scenic route home. The brilliant idea of Braums was agreed on; so we stopped there, and then homeward bound for happycake. No one was even mYN--Utely hungry; but we all managed a small piece. lol Myguy wanted just one candle and said he had one wish/prayer that he was asking for. He told me later on what it was... and I pray God answers, .... in the way he hopes.

Here's a pic of my favorite three guys. ~ Don't they look like a happy bunch?
I hope Myguy had a relaxing day. We had a lot of fun together, and "my" prayer is that he has many more happy and healthy birthdays.
We're blessed to have these two boys as our very own, and I can't tell ya how much I love being their Momma. At thee end of our evening together, the kids headed to their own homes. Then Myguy decided he wanted to go see Blind Side, so we made a date of it. It was such a good story, and a good reminder, to do what we can in this world to help our fellow man.

A wonderful day.
.......With more memories made.
Life's
sweet

Sweet....... just sweet....... You hold tight to those precious boys my friend....Hold tight and pray over them with the fervent prayer of a woman possessed with love..... do not EVER take for granted the wiles of our enemy that would wish to harm your relationship with them.... I have a son out there now for 25 years. I did not pray as I should and now I am having to believe my Father God for the restoration of my beautiful first born....

BUT ..... not to put a damper on that wonderful party! Have many more happy days sweet husband of Lea!

I don't know how I missed this post. I'm so glad things turned out just the way you wanted and at the end of the day a date with your guy. That's special.

We celebrated our youngest daughter's birthday on Saturday. We went to the neatness place that cooks home made even their ice cream is home made. We had a lot of fun also.

My oldest daughter came home on Friday and her "boyfriend" came and ate supper with us. He also went with us Saturday night. He told me later that he really loved my family especially my 11 yr old granddaughter. She just cracks you up with some of the things she says. The Sunday he went to church with my daughter and they spent the day together. My husband said it looks like she's found someone that might be the one for her. He is very special.
Blessings and tell your guy Happy Birthday.
Love you,
AliceE.

I admired your pics on fb the other day...your little boy is kinda purty btw!!! Haha :)
You need just ONE more boy and we'll match ;) I cannot think of being surrounded by girls (after having 3 brothers...it would be weird!!) You know we also ate at the Outback sunday but didn't get chocolate cake after :7.
