I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little ticked at you. First off, I spend 10 cents more per jar on you & you do this to me. Not to mention at the worst time possible (1:00 am for your information). Why are you made of glass anyway? You're suppose to be kid friendly. Well let me tell you something- glass shattered everywhere in my pantry is not freakin kid friendly! Dude says I have to forgive you because he really likes your bananas. I'm only doing this for him and you better hope a sliver of your glass jar doesn't end up in his precious little foot. You can make this up to me by sending coupons. Bye
These little things remind me of how unperfect in every single way that I am. I am so thankful that I have a Redeemer who forgives my shortcomings and does not expect me to be perfect! He is perfect so we don't have to be..
Did yall have a Happy Fourth of July? Dude & I sure did.. We hung out at mama & daddy's house with a crazy, but very fun group of girls!! Tonya, Lindi, & Dawn are so precious and spunky! Later that night we headed over to see dude's best bud, Jacob Campbell. We played games & had a great time. Very low-key fourth, but that's the way we like it! Here are a few pictures of the day
|Is this not the most precious picture??|
|Although I'm not sure how he ended up in his diaper & garage socks??|
|You're a natural Crystal!!|
|Look who I found over the fence, Zack!|
|Ahhh is he not the cutest, I could chew his juicy lips off!|
|Ace had a happy fourth!|
|And so did dude in his festive fourth of july john john|
|The night ended with sweet sleepy babies|
Got one more funny story for you before I call it a night. It will be really funny if you know my dad, whom I affectionately call Jimbo. Well the morning of the fourth, he felt the need to sing My Country Tis of Thee. Hahahaha.
It started out strong & went downhill fast. It went a little something like this-
My Country Tis of Thee
Sweet Land of Liberty Ooohhhh I sing
Land where my fathers died
Land on the pilgrims side
Let everyone have pride, Let Freedom Ring
We got tickled half way through and by the end of his drawn out song, I was crying. There is never a dull moment around the Rhodes house.. The sad thing is he probably knows more of the lyrics than half the people in our country. I am so thankful for the men & women who make huge sacrifices to serve our country. Your courage, strength, and selflessness amazes me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
