Chuck E. Bob's eyes freak me out and Tales from the Communion line

An Easter recap :)

We will start with Saturday. Saturday morning I had to be at church to practice for the Easter Vigil that night. I get up and leave Houston with Jeremy. Practice goes well.

I come home and hubby is acting a little sheepish. I notice his hair is shorter.
I think worst case scernio I will have to help him even out the back or something. He turns to the side and I am speechless. He has a half dollar size area where you can see his scalp :O He then asks me if I can fix it. After, I get my wits about me, I assure him even though I used to work as a Receptionist in a salon, I can not fix it. He puts on his hat like a trooper and we head out for the day. We want to make sure we take Houston to see the Easter Bunny, who Houston informs everyone is named "Chuck E. Bob" Okey Dokey....whatever you say.

So we get there and wait in line FOREVER. Houston is smiling and calling out "Chuck E. Bob, I love you!" He is also giving a way cute wave.

We think that last year was a thing of the past....he is going to love him this year.
Well, we get almost to the front and one of the helpers says they were out of something and takes off running to get something, stating that they were out of whatever. She runs down the ramp and is almost to where she needs to be when it happens...She face plants on the floor. Everyone is silent. You heard gasps and then silence. She was a trooper though. She is up in a blink of and eye and screams out "I am ok" and then runs to where she needs to go. The other helper being so startled has spilt her drink everywhere....yeah.

So anyway, we get up there and Houston is starting to have "that" look on his face. He is panicking. So anyway we are there and Jeremy is walking Houston up to the bunny. I have my camera ready so I can have more than one pic and Houston loses it.
He gets stiff as a board when Jeremy tries to put him in the bunny's lap. He says" No, get me away from Chuck E. Bob. I can't see his eyes...he is freaking me out!" Then wrangles lose and is crawling toward me on his hands and knees while moaning....Then he gets to me and starts to tear up and tells the bunny. "I no love you Chuck E. Bob."

We get over to the side...he gathers himself...and tells the bunny that he does love him and he was sorry.

So we leave and head to the hair place. Houston and I are in the front of the salon, hubby goes to the back. They start to cut the hubby's hair. Houston says " Oh, no what is her doing to mine daddy's hair!" She is not cutting it so well!" "She doesn't know what her is doing." "She is cutting off all his nice hair" I took this as a time to tell Houston not to play with scissors......LOL

Hubby finishes up. Houston keeps asking him " Are you will be okay." LOL

So we get home and play for a little while. I then start to worry about something that they had said earlier at practice..."Whatever you do, don't drop the Chalice." Considering the chalice has Christ's blood in it, I start to freak out!

So anyway, we get there...and my bladder is filling all the stress of the worrying and I pee about 900 times. We file in for the mass which is going to last for over 2 hours and we are on the front row of our hug church. We begin and it hits me hard. I am about to pee in my pants. Oh my, I then internally freak out. I know I can't hold it. I then decide I have to tell my sponsor. I end up sneaking out of the totally dark church and sneaking back in. Crisis averted. So then the people being baptized have to kneel on the alter. It is made of marble. We had to kneel for about 5-10 minutes which doesn't sound like a long time...but it is. Long enough for your legs to start to twitch and your leg to fall asleep.

I made it up....LOL We make it to the font. I am baptized...We do all the other stuff. It goes well.

It time for communion. I don't drop the chalice. All that worrying for nothing.I was the first person to go. The line was forever. The ran of wine before the last guy gets there...he says "You are out of wine, crack open another bottle" Nice dude...not quite the time or the place.

We have reception afterwords. I get home at almost 12. Jeremy has been with Houston from about 6- midnight. Jeremy got a taste of the Big Cheese first hand. He had to go out to the garage to get something. Came in and Houston was trying to remove Nemo from his tank...he had poured all his food in and was worried about him being in the dirty water:P Jeremy had to empty the tank and refill it.

Anyway, we woke up the next morning and Jeremy didn't feel good so Houston and I made the choice to head out by ourselves. We had made the rounds and visited the families. It was very fun.

Easter was wonderful! I am sorry it is over :*( It is probably my favorite Holiday.

I am going to close with some pics...

Me at the font.

Houston giving me....the " I can't believe I am related to you ....look"

Our pretty church :)

Houston's goodies at our house. He got a TONNNNNN at all the family stuff.

Hope you can make some sense...

After his EEG a few weeks little egghead :)

He is a cutie pie. Love him to pieces.

Deep thoughts by Houston Chance

Dictated and copied exactly by Mommy:

UfO's fly. They crash.They crash in Roswell. Armed inforcers came.His name started with a T...or an H like me.They crashed into Roswell. I saw Phoenix lights.They were flying over Arizona. We saw it.It had 8 circles. It was a triangle shaped alien.The aliens crashed, we saw them. They turned around...and saw Betty Cash.She saw them aliens and then had to go the hospital.She was got her DNA by the aliens.Aliens got different DNA.

It burned her. Then there was a tornado of aliens. They could fly.It went over the back of Arizona. It was a an object. It flied over evil. They was good people.

Armed inforcers saw an object in a space field.They heard backwards talking. They said that couldn't be an air ballon. I know it. An air ballon is dark.We said why did aliens crashed.The armed inforcers didn't know.They didn't know what the object was.

They said "Uh, oh." Aircrafts started falling.It got dark in the sky.It disappeared. We saw burning.It was nonesense.It was a bunch of aliens in a circle. So they could see better. They saw an object from our side. It was crashing.

Another thing was snow was flying in that sky. Why that? Roswell, Mexico..armed inforcers detect and saw an object.They never seen them again.Anymore.They saw some objects.It looked like bouncing things that they could control.

Betty Cash saw an object in the air.They was flying.They looked like they were bouncing and crashed. It got so loud. It startied getting so loud.They were flying in the sky and then crashed in Roswell on the ground.

I know it crashed.It's not a owl.It's not a big foot.Why those monsters run like this.They run and run and run.The monster got on the house.She screamed then go home.

I saw bouncy things crash. I crashed in Roswell.It was an explosion.What am I talking about? Where is our keys?I have them here.


Butterflies live in acoons.Butterflies used to caterpillars.

I love you. (Aw...!!)

They fly.Octupus don't have wings. Butterflies do.

Bees have stingers.They yellow and black.

Butterflies are black and yellow too.

Ball games and Blue Angels....

We had a big weekend was busy busy busy.

On Friday Houston had tball practice. It was the longest hour of my life:P Then we had to go get cleats. It was such the production. I need a 13.5 wide. Yeah, IMPOSSIBLE to find. He feet were too wide for the baseball cleats so we had to go with the soccer cleats. Oh well.

Anyway, so Houston had a friend spend the night on Friday to. I thought it would mellow him out. No such luck :P

The next day we had the opening day for Tball and Tball pictures..I will have to share the pics when we get them. They will be interesting for sure:P Yeah.

On to the game...he is by no means the MVP. We count it a success if he will stand where he is supposed to for most of the inning.

So after the two innning game that felt like it was 10 hours long and was beyond funny to watch, we went to the an airshow. The Blue Angels came to town. It was soooooo packed. Houston had a ton of fun. He loves that kind of thing. It is right up his alley.

We were so tired when we got done. Pooped.

We watched some stuff on tv as a family. We love the educational stuff.

Then yesterday I had a Palm Sunday retreat. I have such a busy week with church this next week. I have to be there onTuesday, Thursday, Friday and twice on Saturaday and then Sunday. I may just sleep there :) LOL The only bad thing is no childcare on Thursday and Friday night.Oh well.

Anyway, after Saturday I can take communion. Yay, me. It will be weird after all this tiime to be able to take it and not just get a blessing.

The weather outstide is's sooooo windy. It feels like fall. I am worried and waiting until the last minute to get Easter clothes...I hate not knowing whether to go with cool weather or warm weather clothes.

Also can I rant for a second. Why, is it sooooooo HARD to find Sunday dresses that aren't sleeveless or strapless. It is the bane of my existence. Seriously. I hate that there are literally two choices in a whole store that have sleeves.

I will write more later...sorry for the rambling..LOL

The Mumps...seriously...

We thought I had just been having issues with the salivary glands...infections. It hasn't been clearing up. This has been going on since like October...super painful.

Well it looks like after the preliminary stuff...still waiting on a blood test...that no it is the MUMPS...which is viral...which is why the antibotics...haven't been helping...

Yeah, the joy of having a compromised immune system is the gift that keeps on giving!

It's like Christmas 365 days a year. :P

My mom is flying up to visit fam..I am totally jealous but super excited for the next two weeks of church. :)

Got to see the inside of our new church last is breathtaking...**sigh**
