Last night we went with some friends to the Mexican restaurant to eat. We celebrated Possum's birthday for one more time. At this restaurant on your birthday they not only sing to you but they also put a sombrero on your head and rub the whipped cream on your face. As you can see from the pictures, Possum did not like the attention. After they left and Joel started feeding him the dessert he got happy. He kept saying "Those crazy people. They put food on my face." Later that night he asked me if we could take Daddy there on his birthday so "those crazy people can put the food in Daddy's face". Possum said he would remind me when Daddy's birthday came and Possum never forgets!

After a long day with Fishers of Men, Possum, Squirrel, and Mommy are having a relaxing night at home (Daddy is working). Mrs. Regina gave Possum a classic Disney movie The Fox and the Hound. We have spread a blanket on the bed and are piled up with Goldfish crackers and juice having a good time.
Our Fishers of Men regular season is over now. All we have left is the Regional and National tournaments. This is a great ministry, but it is very exhausting. The kids are finally getting big enough to help out. Today Possum's job was to hand the weigh-in slips to the anglers for them to sign. He did a good job until he decided he wanted to help run the fish back to the water. I think the cool water was calling his name! Squirrel mainly stayed in the coolers drinking all of the sugary soft drinks she could talk someone into opening for her. The kids also enjoyed the fish from the fish fry we had for our anglers.
Tomorrow is our busy church day. The Patch and PeeWee clubs are singing tomorrow night. This is our Wednesday children's clubs. Possum and Squirrel are in PeeWee club. We leave Monday morning for The Wilds. Check out their website www.wilds.org. You can also check out my new blog for the church youth group(www.firstyouthgroup.blogspot.com) I will be posting from that blot while we are gone.
I will get back to the movie now. Thanks Mrs. Regina for the great movie!

Today is Nene's (my mother) birthday. Possum was her birthday present a few years ago! Wish we could be with you today Nene to help you celebrate. We would make you a pretty cake. Enjoy your day. We love and miss you!

The wedding was a success. Possum and Squirrel made it down the aisle and although Possum didn't stay at the front and I had to hold Squirrel they did great. Leah was a pretty bride and the rest of us looked pretty good too. I told Squirrel that we could have cake if she was good during the picture taking process. As soon as she was finished she said, "Birthday cake please." This has been a long and exciting day for everyone. Congratulations Jim and Leah and Happy Birthday Possum!
