A Fast One

Since my birthday this year fell on a Wednesday, I spent most the day at the studio and then church.  My awesome hubby took us out for breakfast since it is my favorite meal of the day (and dinner would be at church)!  Alyse and I ate french toast and eggs.  I guess I will get the point of why I am blogging about my birthday. 
At work my co-worker checks in with me about the happenings from the previous day.  She tells me all the good stuff then calls back a little while later.  She called to tell me to light the candles.  I was thinking to myself (yes that does happen time to time), what the heck, who cares about candles, but I will since she called.  I proceed to light 2 out of 3 (I was too lazy to light the one that was further away).  About 10 minutes later I got up from the computer to stretch and take a break.  On way back to the room I glance over to the table that has displays and low and behold, I see me!  That picture was framed and sitting there with Weadon Photos!  
My first response was "what the heck, how did that get there".  Then I proceed to laugh, what an awful picture, who let me out of the house with hair like that.  It was from an FCS Christmas party I believe either 95, 96 b/c after running a marathon with hair like that, it was gone.  So I call my co-worker who tells me that my mom came up with the idea, sent the pic to my co-worker and was hoping to surprise me!  Well it worked, she pulled a fast one on me, ugly one (literally).  I did tell my mom to beware, paybacks are coming!  Don't worry I didn't keep the pic!

It is amazing all the new words on a daily basis that Alyse is learning. She is even trying to put some together "dusty barking", "bless you daddy", "love you mommy", and my favorite "chocolate milk". Speaking of Daddy, I was reading Psalm 33 the other day and the fourth verse says " For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all He does". WOW that really convicted me on how big words are! Verse 6 says "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth." Just by a word of the Lord things came into existence. It really hit home for me since we are working on words for Alyse. Words can be so powerful and hurtful but thankfully I know the right and true words.

Happy 33

Today the man of the house turned 33!  Wow, where has all the time gone.  When we woke up there was a nice white blanket of the snow kind and it looked beautiful!  We made Dad/Tim some banana bread to celebrate, opened a couple of presents (which one was Chocolate Chips so we could make cookies) and sent him on his way.  I am attempting to make a steak (another present) and laughing to myself.  I think this is the only second time I have ever bought steak and the first to prepare it (Tim has cooked it in the past).  So here is to another year and meat and potatoes!
