Project 365: Week 42

This week I'm doing a black & white installment of 
my Project 365. Just 'cause.

I caught these two playing with a friend's shopping cart. They would fill it up with all kinds of stuff around the house, push it to the bedroom, and then unload it one item at a time. Gabe provided the necessary "beep beeps" as the item was "scanned" across the railing on his bed. Then Saylor told him the total, and he opened up his wallet (a greeting card that plays "The Hallelujah Chorus" no less!) and handed her a photo out of it as payment. Cracked me up!

Saylor got this new movie for her birthday. Fit for a princess. So we had suckers and family movie time after dinner tonight.

Tonight we watched our Passport to India video together.

Today we met good friends at the zoo and spent several hours catching up and seeing the sights. Saylor and her special friend "D" were surprised to find they'd BOTH lost a tooth!!

This chimp was angry today--very aggressive. He'd get a running start, come flying toward us, jump as high as he could, and then throw something like a rock or a stick up toward his spectators! Made me kind of sad.

 But this cutie-pie was a delight to watch. So playful!

And the otters stole our hearts.

Here's the crew outside the zoo. (Like that rhyme?) Seven children between us (although one of hers was at school, so normally it's eight).

First thing this morning I left on a chartered bus to Fort Worth with the ladies of my church. We were headed to the True Woman '10 Conference for the weekend. 

 Perhaps the biggest draw that got me to come to this conference was that the Gettys would be leading worship. I HEART the Gettys. I'd tell you I got to meet Kristyn backstage, but you'd never believe it because I was too starstruck (and nervous and ridiculous and flustered) to think about getting our picture made together. Boo!

The conference continued to be just. what. I. needed. Absolutely amazing in every way. I especially enjoyed getting to know some new friends and hanging out with these ladies. if there were any question...this is definitely Texas.

Meanwhile back at home...

Somebody helped vacuum the car. Yay!

And there were sweet bedtime kisses I, unfortunately, missed out on. :(

This morning they gave our pastor, who by the way was the emcee of the conference, a cowboy hat.

And then the Gettys even let him play with the band! 

We then signed a Manifesto about true womanhood. The worship was fantastic! I've never been so moved in all my life. In fact, this was BY FAR the best conference I've EVER attended. EVER! If you get a chance to go to one...RUN, don't walk. And I mean that.

Meanwhile back at home...

Somebody made a delicious treat for her daddy.

Whew! Long, but wonderful week. My mind is cram-packed with the Lord's goodness. I can't wait to start working through the things I learned. But if you think my busy month is over, you'd be very mistaken. Just you WAIT!

Hop on over to Sara's blog to see everyone else's week.


  1. That looks like a fabulous week! I should experiment with black & white - but I think I'll wait for winter when everything is sort of that color anyway :)

  2. I love B&W photos. What a fun thing to do for a week!
    I can only imagine listening to the Hallelujah Chorus when paying for groceries. That's funny!
    Love Veggie Tales!!
    So glad you had such a great and moving time at the conference. Isn't it just like God to show up right when we need Him most?!
    Have a super week!!

  3. I love that otter picture...such personality. So glad things went well at home so that you are able to take off and take care of yourself for awhile. My kids were HUGE veggie tales fans. I miss buying those videos.

    Great week

  4. That's a GREAT picture of Kristyn!!!! too bad you didn't take a picture back stage with her.... What is she like in person???

  5. She's precious in person! Just what you'd expect someone with an angel's voice to be like. :)


Whatcha' think?
