Thanks for your input! I'll let you know which I choose and if he wins or not!
On another little note, I don't have school tomorrow. Katy ISD was closed today for flooding and then just my school and a few others are closed tomorrow as well because of one of the resevoirs near the school. Wasn't the TAKS test today you might be saying...yes yes, it was, but it will be delayed. Please pray for my kiddos...flooding is very exciting, maybe even exciting enough to forget some things your teacher has labored to teach you! You know I'll be praying!

Before I go into much more daily details, I must go into what Easter means to me so that everyone knows. What a precious day it is. I believe that today celebrates when Jesus rose from the dead. He was fully God and fully man and in God's love, he sent Jesus to Earth. He lived a perfect life and took our place on the cross. You see, we have all done wrong things and do not meet the holy, perfect standard of God. Our relationship with God is not right because of that and our punishment for our sins is death. Well, Jesus came and was put on the cross for us in our place to take that punishment of death. He then rose 3 days later, just as he said he would. He is so trustworthy. Because of this, he has conquered death and we can have a right relationship with our God and King. By simply believing in Him and the sacrifice He made for us, we are given the gift of salvation and when we die, we will go to Heaven for eternity. You don't have to work for it and you can never lose it once you have believed. What an amazing act of love shown to each of us.
I am so excited about today and getting to celebrate it, sing about it at church, and really just being reminded of what an amazing act of love Jesus showed each one of us. Be blessed today and if you have a question about this or you want this in your life, just ask me about it! So, please don't get too distracted by bunnies, eggs, or candy today and remember how much you've been given in Jesus Christ.

This past weekend, we had our first guests over for dinner. That was one of things I really wanted to use our house for. We put our dining room table from world market together on Saturday afternoon and then had guests over Saturday night. Ben grilled chicken on our tiny George Foreman, making us want a real grill very much, and I made the sides. We planned stuff for the coming Sunday school lessons with our friends and had brownies and ice cream for desert. Yum! Then to really break in the new table well, Sunday night we also had my sweet cousin Emily and her fiance Preston over. They are getting married in July. We cooked them a chicken stew from kraft.com (delish!) and all the good stuff to go with it. Ben and I tried our hardest to be good hosts but Carlos did not show his best manners. We left him out at dinner and he decided to leap onto the back of one of our very unsuspecting guests while he was sitting at the dining room table. Fortunately this guy is a cat person and understood. Carlos was nicely closed in a room after that.
This weekend, we are going to the Shell Houston Open for a PGA tour event. Ben is going Saturday and Sunday and I am going just Sunday. I thank the Lord that he prepared me to have a husband that loves golf. I grew up watching and semi-following golf with my dad. It was so relaxing and enjoyable to watch it with him on Saturday afternoons. So, in God's kindness, I now love to watch golf with my husband who also loves it. I'm trying to get into the players and learn about them. I'm really excited to go and see in person some big names. Tiger won't be there but almost everyone else will.
On another note, kitty Carlos is doing well. His personality is coming more and more along with his zany side. Some of his favorite things are staring at running water, drinking the water from the shower when we have just gotten out, his tail, my hands, flowers in a vase, and all the specs of dirt on the floor that he can find. It has been so long since I had a kitten that I forgot how playful they are. He also seems to be invincible. He will fall back first onto the floor from the couch and jump up completely unphased. He runs into chair legs as he's playing and no big deal. He is surely keeping us entertained. Well, happy weekend!
