Specail Thanks

The getaway weekend has been brought to you by:




Aunt Rosa. Thanks for hooking us up with nothing but the best.


Amanda Kirkland was nice enough to take Christopher, Bethany, and Noah for Thursday night, and get them to and from school on Friday. Thanks Amanda our BFF/GFF (just so you know Chris and I now have to argue about who is the BFF and who is the GFF. hee hee)




Pat Kirkland aka Grandma Pat aka Verla Louise. Thank you for keeping Bethany and Noah on Friday night, Saturday night. And for keeping Christopher, Bethany, and Noah on Sunday night, and getting them to school on Monday morning.



Harmony. Thanks for hanging out with us at the hotel, and pulling strings to get us treats, and stuff.



I would also like to say thank you to my Mom Luann for lending us her car for the weekend. Also, thanks to Dad for entertaining Chris on Friday.


I am sure I should be thanking a ton more, but I just can't think. If I left you out Sorry and Thanks.


One last thing about the getaway weekend we had before I lay it to rest.


Before we went on our getaway weekend I really didn't want to except to much and be let down. So, all I really wanted was one moment were I thought my husband and I were on the same page. You know how much I love Michael Buble's music. Well he sings a song called 'Lost'. I love this song and I was feeling like our marriage was the beginning of this song. All I wanted out of this trip was to have the feeling like I wasn't alone, and that Chris was lost with me. I must say I got that times 10. He really is a keeper, and this weekend reminded me once again why I love him, and why God brought us together.



Can't believe it's over

I watched the whole thing fall

And I never saw the writing that was on the wall

If I'd only knew

The days were slipping past

That the good things never last

That you were crying

Summer turned to winter

And the snow it turned to rain

Then the rain turned into tears upon your face

I hardly recognize the girl you are today

And God I hope it's not too late

It's not too late

'Cause you are not alone

I'm always there with you

And we'll get lost together

'Till the light comes pouring through

'Cause when you feel like you're done

And the darkness has won

Babe, you're not lost

When your world's crashing down

And you can't bear the thought

I said, babe, you're not lost

Life can show no mercy

It can tear your soul apart

It can make you feel like you've gone crazy

But you're not

Things have seemed to change

There's one thing that's still the same

In my heart you have remained

And we can fly fly fly away

'Cause you are not alone

And I am there with you

And we'll get lost together

'Till the light comes pouring through

'Cause when you feel like you're done

And the darkness has won

Babe, you're not lost

When the world's crashing down

And you can not bear to crawl

I said, baby, you're not lost

I said, baby, you're not lost

I said, baby, you're not lost


Now I am done and my posting can go back to normal. Was it ever normal?

Echo, I have tried to leave comments lately, but for some reason I have not been able to do it. I will try, again. I hope you enjoyed your reunion. Remember, you cannot take care of anyone's actions but your own. You want to be the "better" person. Also, the elves christmas card is the cutest! Jay & I enjoyed it very much. Such cute, fun dancers! I can just see you girls doing that!

Hey, I love your blog, I'm not very good at leaving comments. I love seeing how we all grow and learn and learn some more. You are a sweetheart. Wish I was there, hug yourself for me!
