Public Service Announcement



Even if you think the combo of Reese, Owen, Paul, Jack, and Kathryn can't be a dud - you're wrong.

Save yourself the time and money.

A Christmas to Remember

I love Christmas.
This one seemed particularly fantastic.
I don't know whether my favorite part of the day was when my 3-year-old cousin told my dad she gave him a homemade gift because it "was on her shelf and just looked so ugly she had to give it away" or when Nanny (my dad's mom) retold all my favorite stories about everyone's childhood or when Grandfather (my mom's dad) told me his analysis of everyone in the room. 
It was all pretty great.

Hair Gone Wild

I thought I should update those of you who
don't see me on a regular basis. (All one of you.)

And no, it is not a clip-in.
Though that does seem to be everyone's first thought.

Things needed to have successful Sunday Lunches for 40

#1. A stockpot
People eat a lot of noodles.

#2. A dishwasher
Not necessary, but definitely beneficial in washing 40+ dishes

#3. Baking soda
Essential. Especially for bare hands that cut jalapenos and stock pots that have noodles burned to the bottom. 

#4. Chairs
Not a necessity. People WILL sit on the floor.

#5. Trashbags
Oh my oh my oh my. The trash a crowd can produce. 
 #6. Delicious food.
Slightly optional. Today proves that people (especially college students) will eat almost anything. Even nasty pasta. 

#7. People
If you cook it, they will come.

If you don't have any of these things, no big deal. 
Really the only thing needed to have successful Sunday Lunches is a really big God who does great things through flawed people.

I serve a magnificent God.

Freshmen Year Part 1

Continuing the celebration (read: mourning) of the last week with the roommates, I will now take you through a picture tour of the first half of freshmen year with two of the most wonderful girls.

 The famous Bricktown night. 
 State Fair! (Remember our wardrobe worries?)
 I sometimes made them take strange pictures.
 Freshmen Fanfare!! 
 Roadtrip to Mansfield.
 Halloween (a hunter, Father Time, Mother Earth)
Basketball games.

We were just little babies.

Last Week Together

Well it's official.
Today marks the first day of the last week with my roommates. 

We've come a long way since this picture. 
(It was our first day of college.)
I'm already in mourning that we won't be living together anymore.
