Racing and Random Thoughts

First of all, thank you to everyone for your prayers and sweet comments on behalf of my family. Please continue to pray for my Aunt Jean and cousins Patricia, Rick and Vickie as they deal with the aftermath of the tragedy.

This week was a much better week. Just more of the same as far as our life goes. On Thursday, the boys and I got to go to my Mom's retirement party. It was there that she FINALLY got to open her gift from Cheryl and I. You see, I have been dying to shout from the rooftops...of my blog..that MOM AND I ARE GOING TO A NASCAR RACE IN APRIL! Oh, Dad and Wade are going to. I don't think they are nearly as excited about it as Mom and I. We are on the FRONT ROW, in the FRONTSTRECH, right across from the exit of PIT ROAD. I will clarify for all of you NASCAR lay people that those are REALLY GREAT SEATS!!!! My wonderful sister-in-law has already agreed to watch the boys for us that day. They live in the metroplex, so it has all worked out well.

There are five things on "my list of things to do" that I am saving, praying and planning for. This is actually the first to be marked off of the list. It was just such a perfect time with Mom's retirement. The other four things are:

1) Take the boys to Disneyland or Disneyworld
2) Go to a Dallas Cowboy Football Game with my Dad
3) Visit my sister in Africa
4) Go on a cruise with Wade

Anyway, we are really excited. This morning we got in the racing mood with the annual Cub Scout Pine Wood Derby. Pictures will be posted soon. Wade and the boys(mainly Wade) worked really hard on cars. Cason got to participate in the family round even though he could not offically compete. I love to watch Wade and the boys interact in these fun ways. He is such a good Daddy.
I guess I will leave it at that for now. Oh, and while I am "randoming", I am watching the Miss America Pageant. It is very...different this year. Odd, really. Oh, and mercy on the talent competition. Simon Cowell would have a stroke!

Did you know that you are a celebrity? We went to see Atonement and they played a picture of you at New Life. I think the projector got stuck because it played 5 times in row. =) How fun that ya'll are going to a NASCAR race! Sounds like Texas Motor Speedway? I got hooked on it when I was on bedrest w/ my pregnancy. Tony Stewart is the best of the bunch!

I'm so glad she got the tickets!!!! And I like your list. Just don't go to the Cowboy game immediately after returning from your trip to Africa. When you do that, it's a tad overwhelming. :-)

Can't wait to hear about the you!

Ok, I want to be apart of things you want to check of your list to do. Brylie is wanting so badly to go to Disney World. She tells everyone she and her cousin Cason are going. I guess they been planning the trip too.

How fun. Sounds like a perfect retirement gift to me and even better that she gets to enjoy the moment with you.
