Our house was hit with a plague this week in the form of a virus. My focus has mainly been on keeping Luke’s fever down, forcing fluids, and having meals delivered to our house.
You’ll see what we mean, especially if you watch all four videos in the series.
I must admit that I’m not usually a follower, but the fashion trend that is sweeping the nation has me more than a little excited.
Ok as promised several times, here is a video from Luke’s hip-hop class. He is on the far left with a blue and green striped shirt and khaki shorts. His freestyle segment is in the last fifteen seconds of the video. Unfortunately, the only audio is lobby noise. Feel free to mute the video and sing “Funky Cold Medina.” I know you know all the words. Also, you may want to enlarge your screen.
Brantley opened the Hershey Kiss “Count Down to Christmas” calendar this morning and because we were three days behind, Luke got to eat three pieces of chocolate before he went to school. Good luck, teachers. The playground is probably resembling something like this.
I was in the tub this morning when Luke came thundering into the bathroom. “Say cheese, Mom!”
“Get out of here with that,” I shrieked. “Do NOT take my picture when I’m in the bath tub.”
“It’s ok,” he consoled me. “I’m not taking a picture. I’m taking a video.”
|This little fella has been keeping me on my toes for four years now.
Happy birthday, Luke!
If you’ve never seen, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” you’re missing out. Charlie Day, who’s character is a lunatic, pub janitor is arguably the funniest man on TV right now. In this clip, Charlie is pitching a new business idea. Click to watch.

She has been called, “Country Music’s first painted lady.” Mitzi Dawn is a well-known songwriter in the country music industry, and is soon to be releasing her first solo album on Valentine’s Day. The album, Trainwrecks and Pink Clouds is labeled as Americana, but if that doesn’t ring a bell for you, think folk-ternative.
Loripalooza is going to be giving away her album BEFORE it’s available for purchase. All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog (email replies don’t count, sorry) with the words,
“I want Mitzi Dawn’s album, Trainwrecks and Pink Clouds.”
Easy enough. Five lucky winners will be chosen at random and receive the album in the mail.
The contest ends January 22, 2012.
If you’d like to know more about her, and her journey toward this album, click HERE to read the article I wrote for the Murfreesboro News Press. Did you click it? I’ll know if you didn’t.
What happens when your child, who got everything he could possibly want for Christmas, finds a wrapped Christmas gift intended for someone else? He and his best friend do a little scheming and open it.
Before you go thinking that I’m a horrible Mom for recording this, you should know that I only turned on the camera after the crying had become way beyond ridiculous.
Luke’s friend, Evan, is crying because he’s afraid he’s in trouble. Luke is crying because he just found out that he can’t keep the gift.
