Irons in the Fire

Yep, I've got too many of them.  Irons in the fire, that is.  Look at my garage.

After a major shipping snafu, we will finally be shipping the first orders of Tumblers on Monday.  I apologize to everyone who has placed an order and haven't received your Tumblers yet.  I promise they will be to you soon.  Call it beginners "luck," but shipping out 200 boxes hasn't been easy.  Thanks to our friends at Seismic Audio in Memphis, I think we finally have a great system in place.  Please be patient with us while we work out the kinks.  The other huge surprise is that we've had to reorder Tumblers 3 times!!  We had no idea we would sell so many.  What a blessing.  So, more are on order and you will have yours in your hands ASAP.

I've always been one to be happiest when I'm busy.  Right now, I might be a little too busy.  That's OK, though.  One major event ended this weekend..with a BANG I might add.  Our school holds an annual Spaghetti dinner and auction.  It's our biggest fund raiser and most of the proceeds go to technology.  I was on the auction committee and thankfully this one is behind me.  The girls both sang and had the best time!

My grandparents came and I snapped this sweet picture.  They were watching Lucy sing and I can only imagine what they were thinking.  I know I was so busy singing praises to God that I could hardly hear what they were singing.  All I know is that my miracle child was up there singing her heart out to God and loving every minute of it.  

Before the spaghetti dinner, we were able to have a lazy morning.  Ella got the iPad out and starting playing DJ.  It's her new favorite thing to do.  She is growing up so quickly and her love for music is really starting to blossom.  She played DJ and they all danced.  It was so sweet watching them all play together.

Jack had the most fun I think.  (then he collapsed from dancing to much)

On a totally unrelated note.....Seriously...look at this hair.  I'm not sure what we are going to do with it.  Radiation destroyed most of her hair follicles.  What she has now is probably all she's ever going to get back.  The whole back of her head is bald.  She doesn't know it and even if she did I'm not sure she would care.  At least not now.  One day soon she might and then I guess we will look into a prosthesis.  They make some amazing hair pieces these days.  Even some that you can swim in and pull into a ponytail.  They are very expensive (think $3k), so we won't make that investment until she asks for it.  Right now, hats work just fine.

Back on track.  Sorry.  Ella's basketball career for 2013 is winding down.  Only a few games left.  Below you will see that Jack is starting to get into the game.  He's an assistant coach in the making.

Ella won a karaoke machine in the silent auction.  It's going to be a non-stop party in our house for a while.  She was so excited and is already asking to have her friends over.  I just love this age!

Today it was Sunday as usual.  Church, lunch at my parents and then a day of resting.  Tonight I am taking the girls to see Mary Poppins.  They are excited but I'm bursting at the seams.  I can't wait!
