Look Alikes Span the Generations

I think Rhett looks alot like his grandpa!
And to make it even better - he was born on Larry's birthday and his middle name is Brown!
Don't you think they look alike?!

I've been tagged by Hilary. I like reading these so I guess I'll play along. Here's how to play: Post the rules on your blog and complete the following: 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, and 3 random, surprising facts about yourself. At the end of your post tag five people and let them know they are tagged by leaving them a comment on their blog- Have fun.

3 Joys - My grandchildren - Hollace and Rhett
My immediate family - Larry, Hilary, Sydnie, Brent and Jeremy
Good friends

3 Fears - Something will happen to someone I love.
Being an invalid
Weighing 300 pounds

3 Goals - Play the French Horn better
Go to a live Beth Moore event
Get new windows on my house

3 obsessions - Crossword Puzzles
Suduko puzzles
I collect Campbell Kid stuff.

3 Random Facts - I have a college degree in Home Economics
I was in an earthquake in Memphis, Tenn about 35 yrs ago.
When I was a kid I was the fastest girl runner in my class

I tag Becky, Annie, Ed, Hilary and Sydnie

I know these are some of the same ones Hilary tagged, but these are the only blogs I know about.

P.S. I need help on knowing how to put other people's blogs on my blog so I can just click on them.

Vacation Bible School Time

The children's area at church is being transformed to "Bible School Land." Years ago when I taught Bible School I put Christmas Tree lights on the doorway and called them "Bible School Lights." That's basically the decorating that was done for the week. Then other people started using lights, then other things, and on and on. Now you can go down the hall during Bible School and feel like you're at a real luau, or in the wilderness, or in outer space. The creativity, energy and willingness of those decorating the rooms amaze me!

When I was a little girl Bible School lasted TWO WEEKS! And we had an open house at the end of the school. I remember making a jewelry box by pasting pasta on a cigar box and spray painting it gold. I also remember making a picture of a rooster using different kinds of beans. I'm not sure what they could have possibly had to do with the Bible story, but it was fun and it has made me remember Bible School.

Look Alikes

We discovered these pictures with similar poses awhile back and were amazed at how much Hollace looks like her mother. So I entered them in a "Mom and Me Look Alike" contest. . . AND THEY WON! Can you tell who is who?

Something New, Something Old

It has been fun reading Hilary and Sydnie's blogs, so I decided I'd join in the fun and start one. As for something old - the girls are both at our house today CLEANING OUT THE GARAGE! I told them that if it wasn't something they would want someday they could sell it in a garage sale! It's amazing how many things we "collect" after thirty years in the same house! Jeremy is spending the day painting our bedroom! It's wonderful being here at work knowing those things are going on at our house!
