James lost a tooth!

My little snaggle tooth!

Can you believe that my big guy lost his first tooth today! He sure did. In preschool during lunch in Ms Prell's class he lost his tooth. He has been working on it for a few days but today is the lucky day and tonight the tooth fairy will come! His new tooth is already coming in - it pushed the old one out - which I thought was strange but the dentist assured me this happens often.

So my question to you bloggers is "How much does the tooth fairy leave at your house?" I think she will leave $1 here.

Writing His Word on your heart Verse 2

It's time to work on another verse - the goal is to memorize 24 verses in 12 months. I will write tomorrow about what I learned from my first verse and how God has already used it in my life.

The second verse I would like to memorize and fully understand is:

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Matthew 7:24 NIV

This verse already has me thinking. I hear His words but putting them into practice is not easy and since we are being honest with one another I don't make it a priority. Which is why there are so many parts of my life that feel like they were built on sand. Much to come from this verse. Thanks again for helping me by holding me accountable.

Again if you are intersted in joining in on this scripture memorization go over to the LPM blog and read Beth's writings.

What do you think when a 2 year old asks for hair rollers at 6 o'clock in the morning???

I will have to blog about James pretty soon because it seems like I have only blogged about Jorja lately but she is in that funny stage. This morning when I was still feeling relief from my terrible back pains (thanks to some great meds and a compassionate God), Jorja needed her hair dried from her bath. She was getting her detangling spray out and said "Stop mom, I need rollers in my hair." Well I have always wanted to put those pink sponge rollers in her hair but I don't have any and she was after my velcro rollers. So we played beauty shop at 6AM this morning and Jorja got her hair in rollers! She even packed them up and a travel hair dryer to take them to Grandma's - maybe she was going to do grandma's hair before her surgery. Anyway, I don't know what to think - does she like playing hair, does she want TEXAS hair or is she going to be that perfect little girl that lets her mommy roll her hair??? I guess only time will tell!

James the Makeup Artist and Jorja the Princess Clown

Jorja got a makeup kit for Christmas from my Mom, thanks Mom (that was a little sarcastic)! She has to keep it next to my desk so that I can supervise the adventure. This is mainly to keep it off of the carpet, bedding and walls in her bedroom. Well she was having a hard time holding the mirror and applying the mounds of glitter and lipstick, so she got her dearly beloved Bubba (James) involved! Here is snapshot of the Wilsey Princess Clown!

Happy Birthday Aunt Claudia

This morning I was telling the kids it was their Great Aunt Claudia's birthday and James said are we going see her tonight - Jorja said when is her party will she have Princesses at the party? I said no we won't see her she is home in Dallas. Then I thought - make her a video. So the kids sang her a birthday song.

Aunt Claudia is a special person. She has always been there for us and I love her dearly. Hope you have a great day!

Writing His Word on your heart

I am not very good at memorizing scriptures but I know that it is important and I often find my self in a place where I need to have it memorized so that I can share it with someone during a conversation. I am determinded to make that a priority in my life. It is not a resolution because I really want to do it for the rest of my life. I am moving it to the front burner! Getting lots of assistance from the Beth Moore Living Proof Blog. I will share the verses that I am working on each month.

First up...
She opens her mouth in wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
Proverbs 31:26 NASB

Thanks for reading my blog, it means that you can hold me accountable...everyone needs a Barnabas, I am lucky to have a few!
