It's been a while......

Ok so I've been absent for a few weeks, I'm sorry.

I promise I will try to pick it up a post a little more often.

I felt the need to post because of something I was struck with on the way to work this morning. As I was listening to ESPN radio there was a sound bite of the Colin Cowherd show. In this segment Colin was discussing the role of tradition in college football and how past tradition can drive schools economically eve if their current performance is below the accepted standard. The quote that got me is "when you own a persons heart you own the person." WOW, how true is that whether it is the college football team you live and die with or the job that drives you to climb the corporate ladder. God wants to own our hearts, He has bought and paid for them through His Son. When God owns our hearts He owns the person, and that is when true joy, and life start.

What owns your heart today?

1st Ice Cream Sandwich

Let me start by saying this video is long (but fun).

Last night after dinner we decided to let NLB have a mini Purity ice cream sandwich. By now most of you have seen the pics on Alison's blog.

Here is daddy's view of the event.

Enjoy (it's long)

Fun Times on a Saturday

Saturday started off with a little piece mill family breakfast, NLB ate some pancakes and AKB & I had some breakfast from Hardee's. (random I know)

Then we all left the house to run a few errands, Alison needed a gift for ME's birthday and I needed to use a gift card i had received for my birthday.

After the shopping trip we returned home, Alison got ready to go to work a short wedding, NLB and I grabbed a little lunch and while she napped I enjoyed the first Saturday of college football.

When Alison got home we loaded up and traveled to Hendersonville for ME's birthday party. After the party we realized that we needed dinner to avoid a meltdown we should grab some dinner before we made the drive back to Smyrna.

The choice we made - Zaxby's - Alison used the opportunity to teach NLB a valuable life lesson "the ranch dip"
