The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Making Memories =)

I have been meaning to share these pictures all week and just now getting around to it! But Wow, what a Sunday we had!! Waiting in line at Parkway Place mall for 6 1/2 hours to see Alabama football's Terrence "Mount" Cody!! Sam LOVES Cody, so when we heard he was coming to Huntsville we told Sam and he HAD to go see him! We knew it would be crowded but never ever did we think it would take us that long to see him. And barely see him at that, we got to the front of the line at 6 p.m. which was supposed to be the time he was to leave and everyone had been saying all day he is leaving at 6 on the dot and will not stay any later. Sam was so worried and kept saying "mom we arent gonna make it up there are we" and of course I didnt know what to say! Well thankfully after that long of a wait we made it. Sam had brought from home his football and helmet to get signed and we also bought a canvas of the big "Tennessee block" play and had that signed. Sam was SO SO SO ExCiTeD! I was so tired from standing all day, Chad & Sam were there with me most of the time but after we saw it was taking so long they actually left and went to basketball practice, came back and I was still in line! It was fun making these memories. Hope Sam will always remember these fun times!!

yes.... this is the line we waited in
