Busy, Busy Week

It's been a hectic week around here, I don't even remember what we did every day except for 2 of them. Zach and Alexis, aka, the Chick, were promoted up to a yellow belt in Tae Kwon Do and were both proud as little peacocks. (Nanaw and Mom and Dad were pretty proud too).

Today we (6 adults) took this bunch of roughnecks to see the Singing Christmas Tree program at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis. It was totally awesome. Many thanks to Jerri's Aunt Peggy and her Mom, Banny, for letting us join their "Are We There Yet" club for such a fun outing.

James was kind enough to let us drive his "new" truck to Memphis with a warning not to "wreck it or get a scratch on it in any way or else we could never come back home" so when he called around 5:30ish to see if we were on our way home I replied to his query with, "Yeah, we stopped for a bite to eat and we'll be on our way as soon as we can get the truck outta the shop". There was about 1/2 second of silence on the line before he bellowed. Ha! I probably made him have a couple of kittens and puppies there before I started laughing.

Good Evening Brenda,
The kids look great in their Tak-Won-Do suits. "CONGRATULATIONS" to them for getting the Yellow Belts. I'm glad yall had a good time eating in Memphis. Girl, I hate that place. People drive too crazy for me over there. I'm a slow driver. I won't go over 60mph. LOL. I know, I know, but hey, the higher speeds just make me too nervous. I stay away from Memphis. They can have and keep everything over there. I sure ain't lost nothin over there that's for sure. LOL. Well you sure scared James huh? I can't wait till you tell us what he said. LOL. Well, take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hey Miz Brenda,

I've always wanted to see one of those singing Christmas trees but haven't made one yet.

I saw your comment over at Karen's and thought I would let you know I'm not blogging at this time. So it is shut down to private.

I'll make a visit or two when I get time though!

Have a great day! =)
