Reflections of Christ

I wasn't able to get the video itself on my blog, but click on this link and watch the video. Very touching, and the song is beautiful. They did these pictures and music for the Arizona pageant. The fellow singing is Freddy Ashby. Cameron used to go to high school with him.

Popcorn anyone???

So on Thursday, Emma got into the popcorn kernels. She dropped them everywhere, and we had a nice time trying to clean them up. Well yesterday she kept pointing to her nose and putting her finger in it. Generally, her picking her nose is nothing new, but when she wanted me to stick my finger in her nose I got to thinking. I looked up her nose, and sure enough there was a popcorn kernel in it. When Cam got home from work, we pinned her down and with the help of some tweezers we got the little bugger out. After that, I scoured the house looking for any stray popcorn kernels. Hopefully it was an uncomfortable experience and she learned her lesson.

I am going to be taking more pictures of Brooks, but hopefully this will satisfy you until then. Isn't he soooooo cute? Thanks to Loa, and my mom for buying Brooks' blessing outfit.


Well, we had an earthquake last Friday. It registered a 5.2 in Illinois, and we felt it over here in St. Louis. It was about 4:30 am, and I woke up to the windows shaking. Here is our groggy conversation that fateful morning.
Brittany: "What was that?"
Cam: "I don't know"
Brittany: "It was probably an earthquake."
(Brittany then rolls over and goes to sleep)
(Cameron was awake until the rumbling stopped)
Disclaimer: Both children were not affected by this at all. Sweet little dears.
Needless to say, in the morning Cameron turned on the television, and sure enough it was an earthquake. I am so smart at 4:30 in the morning. I have also been more diligent in getting my 72 hour kits ready to go. We have also purchased renters insurance as well. We seem to always put it off, but even though most of our stuff is crap, its stuff, and I don't want to try to replace it. Well, I have finally experienced most natural disasters. The only ones I think I am missing are hurricanes and tsunami's. Cross my fingers that I can avoid these completely.
