"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

My SWEET little girl!

How can such a cute little face have such a BOY mouth. Latley Hollie's thing is to spit, fluff, talk about poo poo and fluffs. I thought this was a boy thing. I guess it's partially my fault since I laugh at her sometimes when she does it. The other day we were visiting Lance's dad at the convelecent (sp?) home where he's staying and they were just getting done with lunch. I was out in the hall with the kids looking at the fish tank and they started wheeling all the old people out into the hall. I thought it was kinda sad that they wheeled them out and lined them up against the wall in a line. Anyway there was one lady that wasn't all there and and she kept spitting. Hollie kept looking at me and then at the lady and then at me and kinda laughed. I was just waiting for her to start spitting. Luckily she whispered to me, "Mommy can I spit too?" There is hope of it not happening in public.

i'm always getting on jord about that. like, we were at the grocery store when she was 4 and she farted... then decided to proclaim the fact that she had done so... i was so embarrassed. we tell her that she can only do potty talk in the the bathroom... she when she is in there she gets it all out, its funny...

She is her mother's daughter!! Remember how we used to throw things on the ground at girls camp and when someone would pick it up we'd make fart noises? Good times...

dude, Jen totally stole my line. Our fart humor is legend. Me and Renee still reminisce (?sp) about those days. I worry if I ever get a girl. It's bad enough that I laugh at Luke when he toots, he always looks at me and I can't help but giggle-what am I teaching him?...poor kids, they are destined for great farting noises. =)

That's kinda funny.. love your friends comments... lol, the truth revealed :) Craig taught Tyson to say 'pedo', it's in Spanish. So when he laughs loud and says "I PEDO!!" luckily most don't know what he's talking about. :)
