The last two nights Parker and Jack have spent the night with us.  Jack has been here for two days so I have had the opportunity to document the many faces of JACK STROTHER.  I have soaked up every minute of time with him.  He has been EXTRA happy to hug, he even danced with me tonight during Dancing With The Stars….in the middle of the dance, he looked at me and said “We need some costumes”!  Now he is sound asleep snuggled up to me with his MINK blanket and his (bottle of chocolate milk).  Total contentment…Please no comments on the bottle or the chocolate milk…it’s a Grammy thing. 

one of my favorite pictures….This is the REAL JACK..the one that threw his shoe out the window on the way to a birthday party
and one with his best friends and brother on a little trip we were on…enjoying a late night snack from the SNACK MACHINE. 
The winner of the CARD BOX from the Ultimate Blog Party is Kathleen at Life With Four Boys!
If you have been to my blog in the last few days you know I have had blogger problems…Sorry

A bit of Random…If you have a  Keurig and love it and I do,
be sure and get the new coconut coffee…..My favorite so far…
Another new blog I love is the daughter-in-law of my blogging buddy Angela at
Love Being a Nonny.  The new blog is Moxie Made.  Please stop by and say hello to her.
If you do not read Nezzy at Cow Patty Surprise, you are missing one of the jewels of the blog world, not to mention some great stories and many laughs.

To start out this is one of those days…I can write a post but cannot post it…For some reason my internet is down tonight…I have tried every trick I know, anyone in my family that might could help has gone to bed, and customer service is not open.  To compound that you have to get in a position that could only be connected to yoga to get to the plugs that go into the router.  Let me make it a little funnier…I was doing it in the dark with a flashlight because Jack aka Woody was asleep in that room….Comedy at its best!
I loved the blog party again this year.  Loved making new friends, finding new blogs and seeing some OUTSTANDING BLOG DESIGNS.  It makes me know how “not computer smart” I am to see all the fancy blogs.  I am committed to visiting every blog that left a comment…it may take me a few weeks but I will stop by. 
The “card box” winner from my blog will be announced later this week when I know who won the one through the party.  They have not contacted me yet to let me know who won.
I am just back from market so I have some other giveaways and pictures coming in the next few weeks….
I have JUST found a new blog that has a cause that you must read.  If you do not know Ashley STOP by and visit and learn about the SHINE project. It is one of the neatest things I have seen in blogland in a long time.  I have ordered my shine necklace and look forward to getting it. 
Also on Tuesday or Wednesday my good friend Kristen from Kristen's Creations is going to guest post and show you some of her fantastic work…so be watching for that. 
Be sure and make your way to the theater to see Soul Surfer.  It’s a fantastic movie and one we need more like. 
Here are a few pictures Greg snapped of Grayson today…Is he cute or what and looks EXACTLY like his Dad at this age…

Two Happy Boys
Two boys getting their GAME ON and spending the night with us.  Amanda has a Big test tomorrow night so we feel honored to have them hang with us.  I looked at Parker when he walked in tonight…This is the Baby that Changed Everything and he Shaves now.  And I have to sneak a HUG and find new ways into his heart…Right now its cheesecake, so I had him a piece from Outback ready when he walked in. 
Last week we celebrated the six month anniversary from Jack’s stroke.  In my next post I am going to share a note I received last week from the ER nurse that took care of him that horrible night at Baylor. 
I still have not recovered from Pia being voted off American Idol.  She was one of my favorites. 
Enough random….if you have stayed with me to the end, you deserve a prize…Hopefully I will post again tomorrow.
