prayer request

My sister in law is in need of our prayers. Will you please pray for her. She is in surgery right now. I will update when I know more. Thanks!
I am sorry it took so long to update. Esther is doing better. Thanks for your prayers for her. She had a tubal pregnancy. It was scary for all of us waiting. I am sure it was a nightmare for them. I know she is home now, and doing okay.

Blue and Gold Banquet

Tanner is now a cub scout and loves it. Each month there is Pack Meeting to get all the cub scouts together. Last night was the Blue and Gold Banquet. It was so much fun. We were supposed to dress up in WILD, WILD, WEST attire. AND we had to decorate a cake to share with everyone. We had a REAL cowboy come and sing some songs with us. Then we had a yummy dinner, and cake. They even taught us how to do the boot scootin' boogie. We also learned some cowboy etiquette, that was hilarious, but I can't remember them.
Thanks to the Sharps for another excellent Pack Meeting. You guys rock!!
Here is our coolio cake- a cowboy hat. pretty awesome huh?
Jared does a great job with cake decorating.

and the kids in their studs! :)

after convincing tanner that he could wear
a cowboy shirt instead of his scout shirt, he wouldn't
let me take his picture. whatta boy!

The wheels on the bus

Gage loves to sing and listen to music. His favorite song right now is "The wheels on the bus". Tuesday morning he was singing this song to me. This is how it went-

Gage-"The wheels on bus go round and round, round and round (sang louder with each round), round and round, the wheels on the bus go round and round all through the town. The chicken on the bus says excuse me please, ....

The dragon on the bus says welcome friend, ....

I was a bit confused. I didn't know chickens rode on the bus. But Gage was very sure it was the chicken on the bus that said excuse me please. (singing in his cute little voice!)

So I called a friend of mine that teaches singing time in nursery and asked her, and she had no idea where the chicken came into the song. Then I remembered that Gage has this Clifford music Cd that grandma and grandpa gave him for Christmas that he listens to each night before bed. So I got that out and we started listening to it. He was so excited and sang right along. Then it got to the children on the bus say excuse me please, and the driver on the bus says welcome friend. I understood. No matter how many times I try to nicely correct him, he says no! it is the chicken and the dragon.

He is a definite joy in my life!!
