As seen during Mary's Day...

Today when I was at the ID card facility getting Joshua enrolled in the military (don't ask I don't know how to explain) I looked over on the wall while the guy input all the information and I saw this....

Reissuance of ID cards will not be done solely because cutomers dislike of their photo

Remember: You are the reason why your picture looks the way it does.

Man I laughed so hard! Ya gotta love the military. They don't even take responsibility for their pictures.

I also saw this on a car:

Wag More bark less

Hope this makes you smile! :)

Love ya

Oh love that glorifies the Son

videoSo, this is me and the McCormicks practicing for our song at Matthias' wedding in England, back in 2007. We definitely messed up some spots, but I like it. We sang this song in church today for our closing hymn, that's what made me think of this.

Seen today

As seen on a Florist sign:

Forgiveness is just a Bouquet away...

I thought that it was a lame idea.
So my question to you dear readers is this " would you ever forgive someone just because they brought you flowers?"

I wouldn't. If I needed forgiveness from someone I would do something relating to the problem. For example. If I ruined my sisters shirt I would buy a new one. If I said something offensive to some one I would verbally ask for forgiveness.

Although flowers are nice they are not for buying forgiveness

A Two-Part post!

The first part: (I uploaded the pictures in the right order but they are on here back ward so I will also go backwards)

Some neat and interesting things that happened this year:
It snowed like a foot! that almost never happens, So here is a picture for posterity (and Ben's family that doesn't live in WA)



This a picture from Joshua's blessing day Nov 30th. I love his cute little smile.....


He does this boxing thing a lot. I love my little tough guy....(his father dressed him by the way, hence the no matching)



I got pregnant and had a baby! (not like you didn't know, but it happened to me this year) This is me on my due date. I actually went in to labor on my due date but I didn't have him until 2 days later.......


Also things that I don't have pictures for:
Ben got in to Dental Hygiene school! only a year and a half left!
I got called to be in the YW presidency and Ben to the YM presidency.
That is all I can think of.
Now for the Second part:
I have been thinking a lot about traditions. Like my family for Christmas Eve would all gather and eat popcorn and then we would pass around the "Angel Candle" and say what our gift to Christ would be for that year. Ben's family does a pageant usually on Christmas Eve (not this year the only kid there was Josh and he is too small) They also like to sing songs and read some stories.
This year though we didn't do any of the traditions, my side or Ben's. For Christmas Eve we only had like 6 people at his parents house and no one really wanted to do much. We did have some yummy food and played some holiday games though. Ben and I really don't have our own traditions yet considering that this was only the second Christmas that we have spent with each other and his family.
So other than my inane rambling I wanted to write to you (6) readers and find out what traditions you have for Christmas and Birthdays and any other time of the year....
Love ya
Mary
