My Mini Regency Dress

Here is a smaller version of a dress I made(I made this one, too). I'll be wearing it tommorow night at our unit celebration for our history co-op. I'm so excited! Hopefully I'll be able to get some good pictures so I can post them!
Btw, in cause you didn't know, regency is a time period(like Jane Austen's time).

Wii Age

I don't know if anyone else will get it really thought it was funny. Us kids bought a wii with some of our Christmas money(from Craig's list), so today, we decided to found out our fitness age on wii sports. I was 44, with good balance, Austin was 53, with good stamina, Leah was 38, with somewhat good balance(though not as good as mine!), and Jared, by far the youngest, was 64!

The Collectable Cat

A famous art collector was walking through a city he was visiting when he noticed a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a store. He did a double take when he saw what the cat was drinking from.
He knew that the saucer was extremely old and very valuable, so he walked casually into the store and offered to buy the cat for two dollars.
The store owner replied, "I'm sorry, but the cat isn't for sale."
The collector said, "Please, I need a hungry cat around the house to catch mice. I'll pay you twenty dollars for that cat." And the owner said "Sold," and handed over the cat.
The collector, carefully nonchalant, continued, "Hey, for the twenty bucks I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat's used to it and it'll save me from having to get a dish."
To which the owner replied, "Sorry buddy, but that's my lucky saucer. So far this week I've sold twenty-three cats."

Genius at Work

This story is pretty funny.

Genius At Work

At the conclusion of the sermon, the worshipers filed out of the sanctuary to greet the minister. As one of them left, he shook the minister's hand, thanked him for the sermon and said, "Thanks for the message, Reverend. You know, you must be smarter than Einstein." Beaming with pride, the minister said, "Why, thank you, brother!"
As the week went by, the minister began to think about the man's compliment. The more he thought, the more he became baffled as to why anyone would deem him smarter than Einstein. So he decided to ask the man the following Sunday.
The next Sunday he asked the parishioner if he remembered the previous Sunday's comment about the sermon. The parishioner replied that he did. The minister asked: "Exactly what did you mean that I must be smarter than Einstein?"
The man replied, "Well, Reverend, they say that Einstein was so smart that only ten people in the entire world could understand him. But Reverend, no one can understand you."

Happy 2009!

Happy 2009! I know this is a bit late (the other one doesn't really count 'cause it was automatic, though I did write it). To get the new year started right, I thought I would thank a few of my many blessings, or friends.

Grace- You are truly my sister and best friend in every meaning of the words! Your willingness to serve your family is an example to me. You put up with all my plans, and you are always up on stage to be the "other girl" with me! I love you!!!!

Recah- I have enjoyed getting to know you better through the church plant, Care Group, and being to two Rhetoric girls in TOG. You always encourage me in the Lord, which is greatly appreciated! I love having you as my "big sister!"

Rebecca P.- You are such a sweet person!!! I have so enjoyed getting to know you as we work together helping to clean up after church! I can't wait to get to know you better in '09!

To all my friends at Grace- I can't wait to get to know you all better as we
evangalize in Moorsville/Kannapolis!

To all my friend at Crossway- I miss you all! I hope the Lord richly blesses you all in 2009!

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Thought this would be a good way to get the New Year started! It is indeed all in the way you look at it( though I believe the women's way is correct! :)

An English professor wrote the words, "Woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly.
The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing."
The women wrote: "Woman! Without her, man is nothing."
