Hello friends & family! I don’t know about all of you, but I am happy its Friday. The weather here is awesome today – a cool & crisp Fall day, just the way I like it. I can’t say it enough – I love this time of year!
We have a busy weekend up ahead! Tonight is fajita night at the Dixon casa…another recipe Ryan has mastered. Also, Jen comes home from California this evening, so we’ll be picking her up at the airport…its nice living in a town that has an airport again! Saturday, I SHOULD be running in the Tyler 1/2 marathon, but due to various reasons that I won’t bore you with, we will just be running a long run from our house instead…which is fine by me! But I would like to wish Lauren & Amanda best of luck! Can’t wait to hear how it goes, and hopefully I will be able to join you guys next year. Anyways, back to the weekend…Saturday evening, one of my cousins, Danny, is getting married in Dallas. It will be a blast to see everyone in the fam as we celebrate w/Danny & Kelly! Ryan, the girls, and I are driving up there tomorrow afternoon for the wedding & reception…then, we have to drive back home afterwards – yikes! Pray that the girls will be troopers b/c they will be up WAY past their bedtime. And pray for our patience as we travel in the car with them! Sunday morning, Ryan has a live recording gig. Higher Trails (Joe Wayne Reynold’s band) is performing at a cowboy church here in Tyler and wants to make a live CD. How fun! Ryan is excited to have this unique opportunity & I know he will do a killer job…he always does. Sunday evening, our community group from church is having a cookout at the park which will be a lot of fun. We really look forward to building relationships within this group! So yes, as you can see – its gonna be a busy weekend for the Dixon’s.
I’ll leave you with a few updates/prayer requests…
-Memaw Bade (my Dad’s mother) is still in the hospital, but improving daily. They ran more tests, so we should have more answers hopefully today. Please continue to pray for her & for my Dad as he is at the hospital with her.
-Ryan had his 30th birthday this week! He’s the cutest, most handsomest, bestest husband I could ask for & I continually thank God for blessing me with such a great man & partner to share this life with.
-My poor Mom has a severe sinus/bronchial/ear infection and has been home sick for several days. Pray that she gets better soon…we don’t like it when Grandma’s sick!
-We got to have dinner this week with Gena Smith, which was great. She was in town as she takes courses at a college near Tyler. Its neat to catch up and visit with old friends!
-Kamryn tee tee’d on the potty this morning! It was SO cute. I know…sounds strange to say that someone going tee tee is cute…but you Mom’s know what I’m talking about! Ryan got her out of bed and her diaper was dry – so he just asked her if she wanted to go on the potty and she said “uh huh”, so he took her – and she went! She was so proud of herself…what a doll. Looks like she may be easy to train!
-If you haven’t heard or read it yet – Aaron & Jamie have a VISA appointment next week for Story, their baby girl they are adopting from Haiti! Please continue to pray for them through this process and also for Amos, that things would speed up so they can bring him home soon as well. Also, Jamie if you are reading this – the box of clothes is on its way!
-Texas better stomp OU this weekend. And of course, I’m hopeful for a big win against Nebraska on Saturday – GO RAIDERS!
-I’ve been slacking on the picture taking lately, but I got this the other night w/my iphone and I just love their faces! Gotta love baby bath pics…
That’s all for now! Have a great weekend! Love & hugs.
