Happy Friday everyone! It has been somewhat of a "long" week around here - my sweet Caroline hasn't been feeling herself - we've been for two strep tests, but nothing has turned up… I'm beginning to wonder if she just has a cold coming on. It's hard sometimes when there's not a "diagnosis", isn't it??
She's supposed to go to a sleepover tonight, hopefully she will feel up to it - she's in the 4th Grade and this is her very first official sleepover with more than one girl - I'm quite sure it will be Giggle-fest 2013.
Speaking of sleepovers - last Friday night Leigh's little girl Darby spent the night and the girls wanted to sleep in the living room "by the fire", so we really did it up. Moved the mattresses and everything - don't they look cute? Queens of the World…
They also wanted a tent, so here is pic of my handiwork…
Funny thing is - guess who ended up sleeping on those beds??
I did. :0)
About 11pm it was decided that there were too many "windows and creepy sounds"- a.k.a. the ice maker- for them to possibly get a good nights sleep…
There's a reason I moved the actual mattresses - I knew this would happen. And I wanted to be comfortable while they took over our bed….
They also attended Girls of Grace in Nashville. Our neighbor Sarah got to attend this conference, and all of them had a blast. Here they are backstage with Group 1 Crew. They are always so nice and gracious to our "starstruck pre-teens"…
Blanca (from Group 1) is expecting her first baby!! She looks adorable and we are so excited for her…
Sarah got to be in the GOG Fashion show which was super fun for her….here she is with Darby and Caroline in her "stage clothes"…
Our girls can't wait till they are old enough to participate in the Fashion Show…something to look forward to…
Well, I'm off print out scripts for tomorrow's GOG in Birmingham…I hope you have safe and blessed weekend…
much love to you all,
Speaking of March madness, a big SHOUT OUT to Darby's Basketball team - the Lady Tigers!!! Coach Sanders and Coach Cates were brilliant in helping the girls achieve the Championship Victory in what turned out to be a Cinderella Season - RUDY RUDY RUDY!!!! Congrats girls and Coaches!!! We are so proud of you all!!!!
Darby was thrilled our family and friends could be at the game to cheer her on to victory!!! It was a great day for the Cappillino's - Aunt Dana (my sister), Uncle Jeb (taking the picture), cousin Leila and Isaac and Aunt Cindy (my bff) were all there and of course, Daddy too.
March is a month of celebrations for our family, our nephews Isaac and Brody have a birthday, Denise has a birthday and Dana and I celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary!
Can't believe how the time has flown by... Thanks be to God for His goodness - we are extremely blessed!
"And they lived happily ever after."
Hope you have a magical day today,
Andy update - Old MacDonald had a farm... Enjoy!!
Good times with our little boy!!!
Today is a "blah" day. Do you ever have those? It's just cold, dreary and I have a few things that are weighing on my mind. Decisions to be made.... yada yada. We all have them. Right? So sorry if you are expecting some cute pictures or funny story. I probably don't sound too uplifting. BUT, I want you to know what God showed me today. In Jesus Calling she makes the statement. "Your gravest danger is worrying about tomorrow." It's the "what if's of tomorrow that are dragging me down today. Ps. 73:23-24 says, "Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel and afterward you will receive me to glory." God holds my hand on the really happy fun days and he holds it on the dreary days. But here is what I am told to do today. Give thanks in ALL things: for this is the will of God for us.
How do i do that? By just starting Today. I have written what needs to be done today. I'm putting it on my dash in my car and carrying it with me everywhere i go today. I will only focus on TODAY and think about the fact that God is holding my hand all day long. Tomorrow, I may have to do the same thing, just to keep me from worrying, but my focus will be that God is with me today and that is enough.
Maybe you need your own thing to keep you focused on the Moment and on Him.
