"Mommy I got the mail for you"

We came home today and I'm not sure how Levi got the mail out of the car, mom must have dropped funny. So I ran in, grabbed the camera, and he posed for me.
"Look Mom, I doing something bad, come and get me". He was too cute for me to discipline. oops!

And then he teased me and wasn't gonna give it back. Then he gave me this look like, "Mom I really want it PLEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!" So pitiful... he knows how to get what he wants.

and the kitten.....hIs favorite spot. Too cute too move, he likes it when we clean the house. lol

Tonight on the way home "Why don't you stay" by Sugarland came on.
As I listened to the words I've heard so many times, I REALIZE how godless our country has become...
.it talks about how the wife calls from home wanting her husband home that's at the girlfriends house, and she doesn't want him to live and he should just ditch her and live with me.

Ummmmmm the last time I check...that's just plain out SIN! It's really sad that little kids could be singing about adultery(or any age). Just like a ordinary song.

Mathew 15:11"It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.” Our words as Christians are to be holy and PURE. And it bothered me that this is playing on the radio for anyone to hear.

The shame is, that Jennifer Lettles has a wonderful voice and could sing way better.
Our nation just lives this's (normal) for them. We gotta change the Norm, gosh.

Hee, other then that My day went really well, cleaned the apartment foyers in Huntsville, went to Sam's and Sonic. But I did good and got diet stuff. I burned about a thousand calories going up and down the steps all day.
I can't wait for yard salein' this weekend.yippee!
I'm up to 20 minutes in the morning and 10 at night of running....

I'm really tired now. I think I'll get to bed early....
