Time to Start Sacrificing

Well today is Ash Wednesday and it's that time of the year when we have to figure out what we are going to give up in an attempt to be closer to God. Most people do something food related. This isn't going to work for me since:

1. Kenny and I have cut most of the garbage out of our daily diet and

2. I don't really see how this helps me with my relationship with God.

So instead of giving something up this year I have decided to start doing some things that will hopefully make me a better person and Christian.

Since I'm a sucker for kids doing Catholic stuff here is a picture of Kaleb and me rocking the ashes.

Kenny,Kaleb and I finally went to Dallas a couple of weeks ago and got to meet baby Carson.

She of course is adorable and also a very good baby. She was very sweet and Kaleb adored her.

It was great to spend the weekend in Dallas and Kaleb was happy to spend the day with Uncle Michael while Kenny and I went shopping.

We spent Valentines night with all the Stone/Hicks family enjoying some yummy Mexican food.

This past weekend we celebrated my parents 27th wedding anniversary. It was a fun night spent eating and playing with the Wii Fit we all got our parents.

Once again our Dad proved he will probably always be in better shape than us.

It was a great night and I am lucky to have some great parents who have shown me a great path for a happy and successful marriage. I hope to stay as happy as they are.
