Mummy Love

Last weekend a few of our close friends and family members gathered for a fall frenzy. The kids had a mummy race, played with spaghetti brains and painted pumpkins. Unfortunately, my camera is still down so I had to steal a few pics from you Jen :P Jalen was so excited to see the picture of him and Logan. He printed it off to hang in his room. "Yep, that's my bud Loag" he said. So cute!

A little on the salty side

Wow! Where do I begin? The recent times at the Gilbert's have been a little on the salty side. 2 kidney infections, a torn ACL which will lead to a knee surgery in a few weeks and one of the cars giving out on would think that things could only go up from here right? Well, James hit a deer on the way to work this week and totaled our other car. Now we are car shopping for two!
Fortunately, he wasn't hurt. Poor guy, it was only his second day driving since his knee injury. Our insurance was gracious enough to provide us with a rental car for the next 30 days. Yep, if you see an electric blue Austin Power's PT Cruiser on the road...that would be us:P Ah...all you can do is laugh really.
It's amazing at how small the big things seem in life when you give it all to God.
I must say though...I'm so looking forward to the revealing of His plan.

So I was thinking, I'm a blogger now..great! There's only one problem. The only friend that I have that blogs is you Jen. Therefore, I am recruiting others that I know this week to start blogging! My goal this week is to get at least 3 other friends to join the fun. Hopefully I will be successful. Otherwise, it looks like it's just you and me kid. It's also sad times that my camera broke a couple of weeks ago and I cannot add any pictures until I get it fixed. I think that I got sand in it on our honeymoon. Oh well, what do you do? Last night James and I went to Mason's championship football game. It was so cute watching 2nd and 3rd graders run the field. Mason's team won which put them undefeated for the whole season. Way to go Mace! After the game, we all went to DQ for dinner. Let me just tell ya, I have a new weakness. During this time of year, I normally go for the oh so favorite pumpkin pie blizzard. However, last night my heart found something new. The Georgia Mud Fudge. Oh my goodness, chunks of brownies, chopped pecans and cocoa fudge. It is definitely a must try. As for today, I have two classes to teach and then I'm test driving a new vehicle! Wish me luck. We are looking at an explorer and an expedition. We may also consider a van although I swore that I would not make that move until I was at least 40! I know that you love it Jen but I just can't bring myself to do it. Unfortunately, I may have to in order to have the room that we want without the gas mileage. We'll see. Hopefully something will be in the driveway by Sunday morning. Fingers crossed!

First Day On The Job

Well, today is my first official day on the job as a blogger. How exciting!
I'm quite the talker for those of you who know me so I shouldn't have any problem finding something to say on a daily basis. Today has not been all that exciting though. I did make sock puppets with the boys this morning and I've completed 3 loads of laundry. Now that's what I call progress! The rest of afternoon looks like more of the same. Cleaning, cleaning, and oh yeah.. cleaning. Then it's dinner and the oh so awaited new episode of Prison Break!
I'll continue to work on my layout this week to hopefully make my page a little more exciting. Happy Monday!
