Good Sunday Afternoon!

Hope you got your nap...

some pix from last week...when Molly does give up the fight!

Not too much to report from Deliverance!

Just poppin' in to say HI, we're still alive over here, down here, wherever we are in relation to your exact geographical location...

Can you buh-leeve how smokin' hot it's been the last few days?? Ugh!! wowza! Thanking the Lord for the gift of the pool, once more!!

Yesterday was a typical Saturday at, purging, prepping for another crazy week. My brother, Tom, returned home from his California trip late Fri. night and wanted to bring the little goodies out to the little kiddies...He visited a museum out there that was showcasing the terracotta warrior dudes...that have been excavated and are now on display in different places here and there...he got Will and Ethan each their own mini replica...I'm's such a cool, eerie piece from history...he got Mel a cool Chinese carved bracelet and quaint little hand-held mirror with a jade handle and Chinese art on it, of a Chinese warrior chick...she loves it! Levi and Molly got some Dodgers clothing and Levi got a little plane, see below...Thank you, Tom, for always thinking of our kids! You are a fantastic uncle!

these pix are from the post card
Tom sent us...spooky cool, huh?

I would've totally dug being one of the dudes that discovered the 7,000 terracotta warriors a few years back...a cool unit study for the kids this week, that is Fo' sho.

E. has a spooky li'l warrior on his shoulder

~Last evening, we drove to the upper, upper side of Indianapolis for our friend, John's 30th birthday. I failed to take any pics because I was dealing with all-terrain baby...The energizer bunny in female baby form...she is all Will...he was on the go, at all times...and she has his spirit! ahhh. A nice, fun time was had by all! Happy belated Birthday, John. You probably don't read my blog...o well!

Today, worship service, just Mel, Levi, Molly and I, great message on Psalm 46 and God being our refuge in the "storm", Martin Luther...we even got to sing A Mighty Fortress but in a somewhat non-Lutheran way (I prefer the Lutheran way personally). The words to that song are incredible and it is awesome to think of what Martin Luther endured to bring about TRUTH, that the only way to God is through Jesus Christ. Power in the Name!!

Here's a taste: Verse Two, according to my hymnal:

Did we in our own strength confide
Our striving would be losing
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God's own choosing
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He
Lord Sabaoth His name
From age to age the same
And He must win the battle!

...David stayed home to catch up on everything... (that dude pushes and pushes himself way too much)...and now he is outside making weapons with E. He has had that on his list for a looong time!! Will's loafing around like a lazy bum.

~Edit~ gotta update here...I was trying to post this when we got hit with a nasty li'l the pool one minute, in the house the next, watching the wind whip furiously and ooops, the tree D. started cutting down a few weeks ago went
Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimber...and I actually saw it happen. a fluke. but a cool fluke. D. was jealous!! Storm is over, power restored, no one or nothing hurt in tree event and bread that I was in the middle of baking mom, sorry about the flatish loaf of bread that you will receive tomorrow. Blame it on the Rain!! I took some pix and will post them after I elliptical for a bit!

pretty fun stuff, eh?

Hope you have a blessed Sunday! Hope it doesn't involve anything outside! (sorry Beck...I know you are @ home mulching as I type this!! stay cool!!)

~edit~ now that it has rained, it is much cooler!! Amen and amen.

In a sick way, I am glad that we are not the only ones suffering. It is so hot here, I just want to smack someone, and there is no one here...well, since the delivery men and plumbers left. Since I deserve a break, I think I will blog about my experiences before they become just a memory. Anyway, I was just so happy to see your blog updated...I have missed it, and your witty outlook on life. Hope the elliptical went well. Love, TW (not the same as yours. teehee)

I just got to take a glimpse at the Warrior dude that Tom got the boys, but my hubby was in the truck (probably tapping his fingers) waiting on me to go home and start day one of our "Weekend Warriors" episode(show on HGTV). Yep, it was hot and nasty, sure would've loved to have you there! I can't wait to see the terracotta figures up close. That is also a really great pic of Melanie. Her face looks so fresh and pretty! Piper LOOOOVES the Barbie that Mel gave her and keeps examining the card and has it standing on her shelf by her bed. THANKS MEL!!! I was quite envious of you for getting to swim yesterday while I rolled around in black mulch. Still not done, but it's getting better. How are you with spray paint???xoxoHappy Monday...blah
