WOW - we are #1! The last poll I saw they had moved us to #3 and I was happy with that. But yes a little nervous about the #1 spot. Why you ask? Because the last three teams that have been in the #1 position have lost! This week is again Ole Miss. My mom's favorite team, well before Auburn. So we will just wait till Saturday and enjoy the game!

I love Thursdays! It's when a "small" group of people come over to our house and we eat together, fellowship and study God's Word together. It's applying what God has called us to do and doing it!
I have been amazed at week by week how God is working in all of our lives. There are some Thursday's that we are not all there, but God knows just who needs to be there and works in awesome ways.
If you are not involved in a small group, I encourage you to get plugged in. If you don't have them in your church, talk to your pastor about starting one. It's a great way to get those who are not involved in a Sunday School involved in just more than coming to church.
My prayer is that you have an awesome day. When I got to church this morning (I am the church secretary) God shared a wonderful view of His creation with me. There is nothing better than living where I do and getting to enjoy what He had created. The fog is coming off of the lake that is just down the hill from us.

Well probably not, but lets pretend that it could be! Why not?
Found out yesterday that Crickette can't get off the weekend we want to go see Paxston. This is a bummer! I was so looking forward to her also going with us. It was her weekend to be off originially but she told her manager she would work for her on Sunday so that she could get her little boys pictures made. When she ask the manager for the time off, she told her it wasn't enough time in advance. HMM... I told Crickette to tell her she changed her mind and that she would not work for her, she needs to make an appointment on her day off. But Crickette is thinking that she might get fired if she does. Crickette is looking for another job and I am praying that she gets one so she can have that weekend off and that the manager will have to reschedule pictures! Yes I said it!
I have found another TV show that I absolutely LOVE! It's called Chase - U.S. Marshal Annie Frost heads up a special unit that tracks down fugitives in Texas.
Right now the three others that I also LOVE LOVE LOVE are taking a little break.
Covert Affairs (which has the girl from Coyote Ugly) - A CIA linguistics specialist winds up working with her ex-boyfriend.
White Collar - After being released from prison, all a former con man wants to do is reunite with his girlfriend. Instead, he's coerced by the FBI into helping them nab other con artists.
Dark Blue (Dillan McDermott) - Drama examining the LAPD cops in an undercover crime-fighting unit who struggle to do their jobs and resist the temptation of easy corruption.
I see a theme here....and guess that is why I also like to watch Castle - When someone starts using his books as the blueprints for brutal murders, a mystery novelist begins assisting the NYPD with some of their homicide cases, whether they want his help or not.
I did try to read the book that Castle wrote, but just couldn't get into it. I think because of the language used.
So that's enough for today. Have a Terrific Tuesday!! It's really up to you!

This picture was what helped me come out of my BLAH weekend. I guess it started when my husband told me to call a friend on the weekend of Nov. 7, and go visit. Well she was keeping her nieces so I called Amber to see about a visit. She has Small Group on Friday nights at her house, so that was out (I LOVE that she has Small Group!!!) so I just got the poochie mouth about not having something to do and was feeling all alone!
We did have friends that wanted us to take a trip on the motorcycle after the Pig Pickin' (where we have cooked BBQ all night at the church and feed to the community for FREE on Saturday), but I just didn't want to do anything that day. I would talk to others about Paxston and just get teary eyed, missing him. So my husband calls Paxston and sees when his long weekend end and guess what - Nov 7 weekend.
I did stay home and watch my team AUBURN play some awesome football. Glad I didn't miss that game!! I still can't believe that 108 points were scored during the game. We have an AWESOME offense (WAR CAM EAGLE) but a not do great defense. This morning we were ranked #5. Undefeated so far. We were picked early on by one guy and he got laughed at! HMM. So at least here I can toot my horn about being an Auburn Fan!! A very Proud Auburn fan. Yes there are several games to go, but guess what, no matter what this season holds, I will still be a proud Auburn fan! I had taped the game and as we were watching it, it stopped and said play from beginning or erase. I was thinking "WHAT?", the taping ended with 11 minutes left in 4th quarter. We had paused it a couple of times, so the real time (since it would not continue) was only 3 minutes left in the game and now we were ahead by 3 touchdowns and not just a few points. Glad I got to skip the stressing part! Again I say WAR CAM EAGLE!!
So we now have made a plan to go visit Paxston that weekend. Crickette is trying to get off so she and I can drive to Great Lakes. We will be taking Ethan. I ask Amber if she could get off on that Friday and she said yes, so it will be a road trip with my girls and little guy to see our big guy! That is just icing on the cake. Yes its sad that Chris can't go with us, but it will be High Attendance Sunday and he needs to be here when we reach our goal of 350 for Sunday School!!
Amber went to visit Steven this weekend in Atlanta where he is in training and she stopped back by on her way home to get her "hair did". She was feeling a little adventurous and wanted to dye her hair darker. She got it!! She was so funny afterwards saying she really didn't know how she felt about it. She has never been dark brown before. It looks great on her and she wasn't knocking that fact that her sister colored her hair. I told her she would be doing double takes in the mirror. I can't wait to hear how the pups reacted to it.
So I am ready to tackle Monday!! It's going to be a busy week again. But I am getting to it! Have a great week!!
