We had a nice Easter. Even though we did not make it to church - we still had a great day. Mary Beth is in one of her I am not going to sleep moods again and that is what we did all night Saturday night and the reason why we did not make it to church. Charles however traveled to Oxford and preached for the men and women at the Veteran's home. This was his second trip over and he really enjoys traveling there. He has been asked to take the second Sunday of each month and has accepted.

Mary Beth had a good little visit from the Easter Bunny. Also, the day before our church sat up at the City Park in Saltillo to hand out free hot dogs and drinks to everyone since they were holding the Park dedication and the community wide egg hunt. They had prizes to give away and low and behold they called Mary Beth's name and she won this huge bunny that is almost as big as she is. She loves the thing and takes it to bed with her and sleeps with at during nap time when we are at home.

We hope all of you had a wonderful Easter! Take care and we will be posting more pictures in the next few days.

Laughter Lives Tuesday

Laughter LivesThis post is part of "Laughter Lives! Tuesday" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check our their blog to read everyone else's "Laughter Lives!" posts.

Here is a laugh for you and a AAAAAWWWWW for today on Laughter Lives Tuesday:

One afternoon after work I went to pick up Mary Beth from school. I was putting her in her carseat when this conversation happened.

Mary Beth: Mommy can I have Ronald McDonald food tonight? (Notice she does not call it McDonald's or Mickey D's like most children)

Me: No baby not tonight we were going home and we were going to cook supper.

Mary Beth: Please can I have Ronald McDonald food?

Me: No we are not having Ronald McDonald food we are going home and cook and you can help me cook.

Mary Beth: Much louder voice: PLEASE CAN I HAVE RONALD McDONALD FOOD?

Me: No baby we can not! Mommy doesn't have the money to go to McDonald's - we will have to go home and cook.

At this point I am closing the back door of the SUV and opening the front door to get in and.....

Mary Beth: Mommy why do you go to work to make money if you don't have any money to get Ronald McDonald food?

Boy did I feel about an inch tall at that moment and yes I went into explain the whole situation to her about paying bills, buying food, shoes, clothes and having a roof over her head.

That is our little funny so now it is your turn. Make someone laugh today!

I have added some of our favorite music to our blog. Therefore, turn your speakers on if you can and listen to some great music. Mary Beth must have music because she loves to sing and dance.
