Last night while fixing supper I overheard Alayna raising her voice at the computer. I had to go see who and what she was talking to. It was an I Carly game. When you miss or get a low score it says.... What were you thinking!
What happen to encouragement???????????????????? Like, Try Again??????????????
She totally got her feelings her and in a broke up voice says..... it said, What were you thinking.
It got to the point that I had to make her cut the game off.
As if this world don't have enough discouragement but for a video game to cut you down is just plain ridiculous.
I am sure there are much worse games out there but my little girl is just sensitive.

I remember so well, one thing Jenni told me a few weeks ago. She said, enjoy life and don't worry about the little things. She said a year ago they were the normal family. Had a busy busy life with three girls and took everything for granted. Now it has all changed!
This really stuck with me...... She said, ya know I wish me and Randall would have GOT IT a long time ago. We have had IT for the past few years and it has just been so fun.
It means.... life itself, enjoying each other, loving each other, being thankful for what God has given you, respecting each other, laughing together, just really getting what life is all about.
When you get IT you will know.
Girls, be thankful for your husband. Be thankful for what you have and not what you don't have because what you have can be taken away!!!
To the Blacks... I am so thankful to have you as my neighbors. I love each one of you and will be praying for you all. We will get through this together.
To Jenni... I am so thankful for our friendship. You have taught me things about myself through this very hard time and God will make something good out of this. I look forward to many years of laughs and cries together. Love you!
I feel privileged to have known Randall. He was a genuine Godly man!
Found these videos of Randall thought you might enjoy. He had a love for horses. His gentle soft voice seem to sooth the horses.
WE WILL MISS YOU RANDALL BUT WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOMEDAY!

I know, it sounds really stupid and very risky but if it turns out to be everything it is suppose to be it is a good deal. It is for Dwayne to drive to work but a family car too!
Remember the movie Newlyweds? That will be us!! We have rented the smallest,cheapest, compact car to drive up there.
I will post a pic later of the new car if everything goes well.
Alayna and Lindsey are best friends and through that our family and theirs have became close.
PRAYERS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING BUT IF YOU EVER HAVE SOMETHING LAYED ON YOUR HEART TO DO FOR THIS FAMILY PLEASE ACT ON IT. (IT IS GOD)

We have even grown our own watermelons this year (by accident). We picked our first watermelon grown on a concrete patio. Well, to say the least... looks are deceiving. It was white inside. (don't know what happened, it was huge and looked ready to pick to me)
Dwayne is building us a garage, BY HIMSELF, and with the help of any good friend that would be so kind to help. lol (hopefully with a little knowledge in carpentry work)So far so good but still a lot to be done.
If we are not out in the yard we are probably swimming. This year I can actually sit back and watch them have fun and not be so hands on. Alayna has finally gotten over her fear and goes down the slide and off the diving board. SHE LOVES IT. Aubree goes all over with floats.
