ten on tuesday.


1. I bought a dozen eggs on sale today. The Cadbury kind. I’m thinking eggs for breakfast tomorrow morning.

2. On Sunday we celebrated Easter first at our church, then at home. During the service Sarah colored this pictorial version of the resurrection story complete with (moving from left to right, then down) Jesus on a donkey, Mary Magdalene crying, Jesus in his white robe, and then the stone in front of the tomb. I’m thinking there’s got to be a sermon somewhere in the quadrants of this cross. 3. When we got home from church I asked B-Ro to tell the Jesus story for my camera. His preschool teacher (shoutout to Miss Debbie!) and Sunday school teacher (thank you Miss Leslie!) have done a pretty bang up job teaching him all the pieces and parts. I love it. (sorry it’s sideways)

4. To even out that healthy dose of religion you just got, go ahead and check out “Winning – A Song by Charlie Sheen” by the Gregory Brothers. You’re certain to lose any religion you may have just found. You’ve been warned.

5. By the way, as I was attempting to link that video, the song started blaring and I was on the phone with a new client. Um, epic winning?

6. This Saturday is the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville. I’m attempting to break my previous 2:16 time. I’m stating that publicly so you all can ridicule and shame me if I don’t. You know, for motivation and all.

7. If you’re a local mama (or daddy!) you won’t want to miss out on this Mom About Town giveaway over on our business blog. Music Together with Amie Furber has been one of the most enriching things I’ve ever done with my kids. I get seriously teary eyed when I think that this semester is probably the last time I’ll get to take a class with either of them since they’ll both be in school everyday next year. Cue the waterworks.

8. T-19 days until we head to Dayton for two weeks. SO excited to catch up with all my friends there, and meet some new clients as well!

9. Speaking of Dayton friends, my friend Janelle writes a pretty awesome blog about all the adventures she and her husband have with their two boys – Lucas Danger and Axel Adventure. They are a family who is super serious about rock-climbing, traveling, and spending quality time together. I just love them. Anyway, her post last month about her son Lucas’s “passion” still has me giggling out loud at random moments when I remember it. If “out of the mouths of babes” kind of stories are your thing, definitely check it out. Hilarious.

10. Enjoy this last week of April, friends! And just where is this year going anyway???

What a smart, handsome little boy. And what a wonderful artist his cute sister is. Thanks for sharing (all the time).

First off…that video is adorable and I can’t believe that is the same boy that was here last May. It’s so fun to see him in real life. 🙂 What a little man!!

Second, we are super-duper excited to see you all too. Maybe we’ll make a countdown?!

Third, thanks for the blog shout out! Yes, there is much passion to be had in this house. What am I going to do when that boy is 14?!?!?!?!

MISS YOU TONS!!! See you soon. Love,JMLA

This year is flying by! I just crossed today off my calendar and did a double blink to make sure that there are in fact, 3 days until May. If only our weather got the message…

Your little guy explaining Easter was so cute! Love his outfit!
And Charlie Sheen, oh, no words for him, but the guys that do the videos and songs, my kids love everything they do. Thanks for sharing. I think.

I think we can all agree that Jesus is “epic winning,” so it’s all good.

TammyApril 27, 2011 - 7:49 pm

Oh my word … your son is adorable and I will cheer for you as the mommy, his preschool teacher AND his Sunday School teacher for teaching him so well! “He’s A-wive!” So cute.

I have followed your blog ever since I took a class from Karen Russell and she talked so highly of you. I love your delightful stories and beautiful photography. I have been checking your blog today to see if you post anything about the massive tornado that went through Alabama. I hope you and your family are safe and were not effected. Praying for all of the people that were!
