Helping Pop

Connor and Pop working on the pool. They had so much fun. I just hope Connor will be as eager to help out when he is older. Now he loves to be the Happy Helper.

We're playing with a frog.

I just want you all to know that I dislike frogs very much!!!!! In fact I don't like bugs, spiders or varments of any kind and neither does Connor. I didn't want Connor to be afraid to touch the frog so guess what? I touched it first, several times. YUCK!!!!! But he did touch it and we both had a fun time making it jump. The things we will do for our Grandboys.

10 Things on the Tenth

10 Things on the Tenth is something new for me so today I am going to share 10 things I've love about my life and a special prayers for each. 1. I love the fact that My Heavenly Father loves me and I know that I will spend forever with him. My prayer is that I will spend more time with him daily and share his love with everyone. 2. I love my husband with all of my heart. Lynn is the best husband in the world. One of the special things he does for me is he keeps my car filled with gas. He loves to cook and is a hard worker. My prayer is that I can be the wife that Lynn needs. 3. I love our children, Lance & Felice, Curt & Gracanne, Jay, Jeremy & Laura, Josh & Christine and Jodi. They are all special in different ways. My prayer for them is that they will desire to have a deep relationship with Christ. 4. I love our Grandkids more that I thought I could. Mack, Reed, Connor, Graham & Bliss. They are a wonderful gift that God has given us. My prayer is that I will be the best Christian Grams and share the love of Christ with each of them and that they will choose him. 5. I love our parents and am thankful for all that I have learned (good & bad) from them. My prayer is to be a better daughter. 6. I love my family and friends. I am so thankful for my family and the friends that God has given me. I am so amazed in how much my friends are like family to me. My prayer is that I will be the friend that Christ wants me to be. 7. I love my Job. I have such a good time and can't wait for all the new things we are doing. My prayer is that I will wait on God and honor him with our business. 8. I love my home and I'm so thankful that God provided it for us. My prayer is that I will take better care of it and use it to further the kingdom. 9. I love my church and I'm so thankful for what Central Baptist Church has meant to me and my family for 20 years. My prayer is that I will be a better member. 10. I love my community/town. It is Great to live in a place like Magnolia. My prayer is that I will encourage others in our area and for all of us to be better citizens. Love to all, Lori

Celebrating Easter

He is Risen, He is Risen indeed. My Savior is risen and promises to all if we believe he is the Son of God, was crucified for our sins, was buried and rose on the third day, that we will spend forever with him. I BELIEVE!!!!! We had a blessed day in church and the music was ... well there are no words to describe it. Yesterday was our Annual family Easter Egg hunt and it was Great. Graham, Reed and Connor were here for the hunt. This was Graham's first time the hunt eggs, last year he was just a baby. He was so precious, he would sit and play with the grass. However he did get a basket full. Reed and Connor are old pros and had baskets full of eggs. Everyone had so much fun with them. Nanny & Papaw, Lynn's parents were able to be with us and they always enjoy watching the hunt. Lynn prepared the best lunch. How would I ever make it with out him! We had sloppy joes, grilled hot dogs, saugage/beans, broccoli salad, slaw, peach pie, brownies and cupcakes and almost all the food was gone. There were 16 of us. We made pictures, so many pictures and really enjoyed our time together. We were missing grandboy Mack, Lance and Felice they were busy getting our newest addition to the family. Bliss Vivian Story was born yesterday at 12:42 PM, she weighed 6lbs 14oz and was 18.5" long. Mother and baby are doing just fine. We left Magnolia about 3:30PM heading to Hot Springs to get kisses and see that sweet baby girl. I even got to see her feet. I so love little baby's feet. She is beautiful and looks just like her Big Brother Mack. We made it home around 10:00 PM. Wishing you and your family and wonderful Easter. Take time to reflect on what Easter means to you. Happy Easter, Lori
