1. After seeing what I had set out for him to wear for the day, baby hulk screamed “I don’t want to be handsome.” He equates handsome with church shirts.

2. After getting in trouble Goose said, “it’s not my fault when you yell at me, it is your fault.” He’s right, we can only control our own actions, not those around us. I hope he remembers that when he is older and losing his temper.

3. “Where is Turbo’s retired jersey?” (Turbo is a mascot.) “Is it true you were going to name me Kyle?” “How old do you think those little dippers (break dancers) are?” All said by a 14 year old at a flipping Rockets playoff game.

Celebrating Baptism

Happy Baptism Day, Squirt! Tonight, we celebrated our oldest son’s Baptism day. He was actually baptized on April 19th, but due to a hectic schedule this week, we haven’t been able to celebrate this important day until tonight. Just like a birthday or other holiday, we celebrate each child’s baptism yearly. We have a special dinner on our wedding china, look at pictures from their special day and light the Baptism candle. About a month after lighting his candle, my oldest son always asks when he gets to light it again.

After my son lit his candle tonight, my husband prayed for him and for us. I wish I could repeat what he said because it was so beautiful. He reminded us that God bestowed grace into our life that day and that we became members of the Body of Christ, how important it is to live a life of faith and when we fail to ask for forgiveness and know that with Christ we can do anything. I know that I depend on the grace from my baptism daily, although sometimes it seems like I turn my back on that grace. Thankfully, I had a reminder this week to open my heart and allow that grace to work within me. As my son grows older and faces more challenges in life, I pray that he too will open his heart to God’s grace. I love you so much, Squirt and wish I had a picture from that day to share with everyone. (I didn’t have a digital camera back then!) You were so proud to be baptized. May God bless you always, Squirt.

Since I can’t get into facebook and keep track of “friends” I haven’t seen or thought about in years, I decided to try out another “in” thing: blogging. I’m not a good writer, but I do love to talk/brag about my family and friends. I have always kept a journal, although I suppose I’ll be a bit more selective about what I share on this site. I hope to share a glimpse into our family life. Just getting started on this blog has taken several hours because I’m not very good with computers. Despite getting ready for the draft this weekend, (if I knew anything about computers, there would be a link to the NFL site at this point), my wonderful husband helped me fix the layout so that I had a burnt orange background. Thanks, baby!
