Only 3 More Sleeps ...

We count down all big events in this house according to how many sleeps are left ... SO ONLY 3 MORE SLEEPS TILL CONCERT .... Tomorrow Amie (from my blog family) comes in town and since she is bringing brownies and has demanded to work, we will be hanging for the day sorting t-shirts, working on my picture collage, and joining the fun will be Mary Pat, Katie, Suzanne, and Anna (the kid count running around screaming and playing is still yet to be determined ... I am guessing around 20 or so !!!!) ...A day of working, eating, and just good ole girl time laughter .... Who could want anything else ....

And so as not to get our priorities out of whack, we will be heading to Chuck E Cheese @9:30am since my Emily turns 5 tomorrow .... THE BIRTHDAY GIRL didn't think a day of working on the concert stuff sounded much like a birthday fun day, so we are compromising .... hee hee !!!! 5 yr old ... can you believe it ... 5 yr old ... I am still processing it ... 5 yr old ... is like forever ... Happy Birthday princess !!!!

We have added a nice big old ZIT on my face to this list of events on Sunday ... So Join Us For ...Point of Grace, Katie Davis, The Crazy Oatsvall Team and my ZIT .... It is sure to be hideous by then and I am totally blaming it on Satan .... but so sorry for him, but nothing is going to steal the JOY of the day .... Joseph, if only you could realize how many are coming together to LOVE on you !!!!

How exciting!!!

I have LOVED following your blog...even more now as I just returned home from Uganda!

I am praying for a HUGE turn out at the concert!! I was able to meet Katy during my time in Uganda...what a sweet sweet girl she is!

Blessings to your sweet family,

I am soooooooo jealous...I soooo want to be there on Sunday.

And, you know what?

My 2 big boys, the 2 little girls, and I will be in Columbia, TN on Tuesday afternoon. Isn't that terribly close to you? I tried to make it practical to leave earlier, just so I could be at the concert, hear Point of Grace, meet Katie.....

Oh, well, I'll just have to read about it.

I have a ZIT cure for you! Hold a warm washcloth on it(do not rub/squeeze it)for a few minutes. Pat it dry. Dab regular Crest toothpaste on it and let it dry. You can leave it on overnight and it should be gone!!! Love you and wish I could be there!

Blessed Mom of 8 said...

Ok, I'm totally living vicariously through you! I'm like a little girl counting down sleeps too! I love it!

You and your zit will be perfect on Sunday I just know it!

Hugs and so much love Gwen!

Oh Gwen, we cannot wait. I'm counting the days down too! Me, my seven kiddos, and Kylie are heading up Sunday after church...we're planning to be at the church when the doors open at 5! (Husband will be out of town and is a wee jealous....)
I am emailing Amie right now...I did not know she was coming! I can't wait to meet everybody...but mostly, I can't wait to witness Jesus move on behalf of His orphans!
I am really squeezing my hiney cheeks excited. That is a sure sign that I am PUMPED and CANT WAIT!

We count down by sleeps too! Once I tried to add night time sleeps plus naps for a count, and it turned into a big mess.

Dosen and I are going to do our best to make the trip to Nashville. We'd love to support Team Oatsvall! Not to mention we'd get to love on Levi M., too!

I'm hoping for a HUGE crowd:)

My littlest J's are super excited, they've already packed what is most important and necessary to them...they're toy bags!! Well, a girl has to travel comfy, right...and, boy are they excited. We've prayed for Maggie now for so many, many nights...and, each night this week I am asked, "is Maggie going to be there?"

See you around five...if the traffic is light and the bathroom breaks, too:)

My husband and I are coming to the concert tonight (from Huntsville, AL) and I can't wait to meet you!!!!! We're bringing our two boys, our daughter from China and my sweet teenage cousin and her friend. I didn't know if it was going to work out for us to come but it looks like God has cleared the way for us to be there. Praise the Lord!

See you in a few hours...
