What a wonderful vacation we had...wish we could have stayed longer. We went to all 4 parks and McKenzie had 2 special lunches...one with the Winnie the Pooh characters and the food was great and the other was with the Disney Princesses.
This pass weekend we went to Corsicana for by mom's Homecoming. We were sitting in the lobby of the hotel chatting with friends and all these pretty ladies were coming in with banners on. They were having the Mrs. Texas pageant. Mrs. Texas from last year walked in and McKenzie wanted her picture with her. Mrs. Texas had her crown in a clear box, take it out of the box and put it on. McKenzie said "She's a REAL princess".
What a special night this was. The kids said a bible verse from A to Z, sang some songs that melted my heart and watched a slide show from the beginning of school to the last day of school. I can't believe McKenzie is a first grader now.
McKenzie loves Justin Bieber. She wants to go to his concert so bad, but couldn't get tickets in Dallas, so we are taken a rode trip with her best friend to see this fine looking boy. We told them Sunday night and they were so excited.
Friday morning, McKenzie and I flew to Mississppi. They don't have a direct flight so we flew from here to Memphis, then Memphis and Columbus. I hate to fly and McKenzie LOVES to fly. She talked the whole time and I was kinda glad....it kept me from being so neverous. I will never understand WHY the Airlines ask if children are traveling and there age but seat them NOT next to there parents but 3 rows back. I had to get them to put us together both times. It happened to us last summer also. We had a great flight and loved seeing Granny, cousins, Aunts and Uncles. My prayer is that Granny will be able to get around and use that leg agian. Even through I don't see Granny allot, I hope that when I do see her, she knows and feels that I love her, after all she is my Granny.
The passed couple of weeks while I do McKenzie hair for church she has been asking allot of deep questions about God, Heaven and Hell. This passed Sunday was different. She made a comment while I was doing her hair, I stopped what I was doing and said "McKenzie, did you ask Jesus into your heart?" she said "Yes, Friday on the carpet in my classroom" I gave her a big hug and kiss (of course, I had tears in my eyes). We talked about it, I wanted to make sure it was a REAL thing. We talked to our Childrens Ministry teacher. Let me tell you. I was so proud of McKenzie. She really did it. God is so good.
They have Chapel at her school and she asked me to come to one. Wednesday, I went to Chapel with her and I wish I had my video camera with me. Dr. Taylor was to get someone to be his star and he picked McKenzie. She had to go on stage with him, He put his arm around her. Told everyone this is McKenzie Daniel, "McKenzie, do you know you are my sister in Christ". McKenzie said "yes sir". He told everyone what she had done in your classroom and you can be saved anywhere. He handed her a star and said "You are my star". I loved it. SO sweet.
God is so good. I have been married to my best friend for 17 years and we have been blessed with a beautiful little girl. McKenzie is 4 years old and the light of our life. God has blessed me with a wonderful family and the BEST parents in the world.
