The boys were happy to have it!
Before the show, the church had the fellowship hall open with games and snacks while last minute sound checks were being done. Since I was on a date with my two boys, I bought them each 2 pieces of pizza and a soda for $1.50 each. That means we had our "date" on $18!
The church brought in this awesome lighting that really made it feel like a true concert.
He even rapped about our poster. I reminded the boys at the last concert he had a song he uses items from the audience for. I also warned them that he ripped the poster in half at that concert. So when he took our poster, they knew what was coming so we didn't have any issues, if you know what I mean.When the show was all over we bought a little poster of "Tweezie" that he signed and we got this great picture with him! All in all it was a great Friday night out with Marcus and Zachery, a much needed bonding time with mom and sons. If you are wondering where Mark was, he was sleeping, trying to recover from our Thanksgiving travels and no sleep before we worked a 12 hour day.
This is the boys less than 20 minutes after the concert. In PJs, in bed, asleep, with the dogs. All 4 of them in a twin size bed. Why do we have two sets of bunk beds when they prefer to sleep together in 1 bed??? I dont know....

Here is the finished product! It looks great. Mark and the boys did an amazing job. My job was putting the ornaments on! Our Angel topper is not working so we have to get a new one. I still have the little tree that my sister gave me two years ago. It fit perfectly on the CD stand and it nice to have in this room since we spend lots of time here. I need to get a few more ornaments to put on it. I only have 3 right now, and no topper. Remember, I am a work in progress!Least but not least, is the dinning room table. Simple and sweet, nothing to big and fancy. That's all I have for decorating. Maybe after Christmas I will have some extra money to shop during the discount days for holiday stuff. We will see what I have to offer this time next year! Hope you are enjoying this holiday season as much as we are. Have you put up your tree yet?

Our tenants have called and said that the dishwasher is not working at the house in California and that they are having some electrical issues. We know an electrician and called in favor and he will be fixing it all tomorrow. Hopefully it wont cost us too much money. We want to keep the renters happy so they will stay in the house at least another year or more....
Oh! We are loving our fireplace!

Zachery raked up these pine needles, put them in this box, taped it shut and then told Dad he had a present for him. He said he wanted to give Dad this present so that when it was time to start the fire he would not have to go out in the cold to get the pine needles.

She did not even get out of the car before the boys got their hugs.
Even when she did get in the house they are still hugging on her.
Once Marcus was done with his program we were driving away and we saw this beautiful tree with the orange leaves still on it. I had to have a pic of them under it. I am loving having a true "fall" season.
Ozell, Mark's Mom, should be here in about 2 hours. Almost done cleaning!

He loves me! I love him! He takes care of our family, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. He is the best handy man ever. He has a never ending supply of patience to help with the boys. He filled my love tank last night by rubbing my legs for over an hour. He likes to cook dinner for us. He doesn't mind helping to bag all the pine needles when I rake up the piles. And he never complains when it is getting close (or overdue) for a leg waxing appointment. :-) That's my husband of almost 10 years!
