Max came running into the house breathlessly exclaiming, "Mama! For you!!"

He handed over a large, but spindly, blackened, and crumbly, twiggy-looking thing. I tried to figure out why it was for me...and then I noticed, there on the ends of the brittle stems were tiny dried flowers. The only ones around this time of year for a boy who wants to pick flowers for his Mama.

Thank you, Max; I love you too.
And now why is my sweet boy so excited? And why is he standing by the clock chanting "Teek, Tock, Teek, Tock, Teek, Tock...."? (apparently our clock has a Russian accent, who knew?)
Because it is almost 7:00pm.
Time to watch Walker, Texas Ranger:


It's become a family event a couple of nights per week. The boys love it. We HAVE to get a video of them watching the big fight scene at the end. Oh how fun it is when the bad guys get it!!

Oh, I would love to see video of that! Chuck Norris has a way of bringing out the man in little boys, doesn't he? :o)

Check it out!


Perhaps an idea for upcoming birthdays. Andy also loves Chuck Norris too :)

Hi Steve!

Our kids do the same, isn't it cool! BTW...I got you message through Facebook that you wanted to talk about UOO and hosting programs for your church. I've just been unable to write back in a timely manner. E-mail me at felixroge@yahoo.com and I'll share my phone number with you.

Also, could we post your blog on our "friends" link on our blog? Feel free to do the same with ours if you wish. Blessings!

It's great that you can use Chuck Norris as a motivation for getting schoolwork done or chores or whatever. I wonder if Chuck knows how useful he is.

It's good that they can watch a program where the good guys always win.
