Photo Fun, Take Three

Kim and Jennifer got me started on this. It's fun!

Here are the rules:

1) Choose the 4th folder where you store your pictures on your computer.
2) Select the 4th picture in the folder.
3) Explain the picture.
4) Tag 4 people to do the same - NO CHEATING! (cropping, editing etc.)

This was taken in Las Vegas last December. Jason and I went with friends for an extended weekend. Jason LOVES Vegas. Me, not so much. We had a lot of fun, though, and our friends knew some amazing places to eat.

A little more about the picture. Jason is not much of a walker, and so we were always waiting on him. The three of us would take the stairs while he made sure to take all of the moving sidewalks and escalators. He is pretending to be nonchalant in this picture, but he knew we were cracking up watching him!

Bill Cosby Don't Lie

Lane had his tonsilectomy today. My sis told me I should listen to Bill Cosby's monologue on tonsils http://www.imeem.com/popmusic/music/66AKwPKe/bill_cosby_tonsils/before Lane had his surgery. It's a long one, but if you want to listen to the monologue, click on the link.

Yep. It was pretty much like Lane's experience! Lane was all pumped up for the fun and games he was certain to find waiting for him at the hospital. Didn't happen quite like he planned.

He's a little grumpy already at this point. And this was before the third try for the IV. After that little ordeal, Lane was beet red and sweaty. Poor guy.
Post-surgery. Still pretty woozy.

Lane's opinion of the entire procedure:
He is doing fine now. He has had some broth and a popsicle. Aunt Jen sent lots of DVDs for Lane to watch while he is recuperating. According to the doctor, Day Two will probably be the worst. Too bad Jason has to stay home with the patient for that! :) I must go back to school. My students need me.
Seriously, though, Lane was so brave and tough. He's a trooper. I know several of you prayed that everything would go smoothly, and it did. Thanks!

Shop at home

I "winterized" my bathroom. I bought new towels at Target a couple of weeks ago, so I needed to redecorate my bathroom to coordinate with the towels.

So, I "shopped my house" and came up with an old black picture frame with a broken easel stand. I wrapped the mat with Christmas wrapping paper (it looks like hot air balloons in this picture, but it's actually pretty cool), and tacked a black ribbon on the back of the frame to hang it.

The greenery is from my yard (we'll see how long it lasts), and the picture frame & box are from my closet.

Close up of my new towels. I don't have a super camera that does everything justice, but I love them!

My little darlings. These pictures were taken about 4 years ago.

Post #2-The reason I feel stupid today

Now I really feel like an idiot. I was thinking that the next post (about the Christmas program) would be first today. Pretend you read these in reverse order!

About the math test? I didn't pass. Missed it by 4 lousy points. My comps for my master's degree were not this hard.

I'm mad at everything.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Our church had its annual Sunday School Christmas program last Sunday.

I have no idea why this is underlining as I type. I would fix it if I could. I'm feeling rather stupid today-you'll find out why in another post.

Anyhoo, the program was great! Lane played the part of a Sunday School student who did not appreciate the true story of Christmas. There was a live play, and a powerpoint slideshow to go along with the Christmas story from Luke.

Lane was(okay, now I have a different font color and no underline. This is fabulous.) a shepherd for the nativity.
Lane as a Sunday School student.

Paige was one of the three kings who "saw a star in the East." Doesn't she look regal?

Waiting, waiting, waiting

I think I have been online at least 50 times in the past twenty-four hours to see if my test results are available yet! Nope.

The test? Remember the math test I had to take in November? Yeah, that one.

I have to wait until tomorrow afternoon for results. I thought they would be available TODAY. Arrrggghhh.
